I think a big part of the reason for this is that sports lend themselves well to being "socially watched" events.  Many people prefer to watch sports games with others, and what lends itself better to that than a remote-controlled big-screen TV?

(Yes, you can use the big flatscreen TVs with HDMI ports as giant monitors for your computer, but that's a far more labor intensive, less attractive option for many.)

Re: Globalization?
It's interesting that Comcast has these streaming offerings, because I don't think that they are spending a lot of time marketing these services. 

There might be reasons for this - I am going to guess that Comcast still wants people to pay for regular cable subscriptions. If streaming becomes an option for people, they may find a way to economize to broadband and Netflix, if possible. 

Of course, traditional cable still dominates sports. For now.

I think lots of people can be convinced to watch ANY world competition in ANYTHING as long as the teams are divided by countries.

...Hmm.  Excuse me.  I'm suddenly inspired to start writing business plans now.
