Is it correct to say He watches sport on TV or he watches sports on TV. What is the difference?

  • English - Native speakers -

    Sports is plural, indicating more than one sport.

  • English - Native speakers -

    PsyDAG is right. "Sports" is plural.

    If you are watching one sport on TV, though, you should just name the sport: "I'm watching soccer on TV." But if you're referring to watching all kinds of sports on TV in a general sense, then you use the plural and you don't need to name them.
