is there any way to enable the Silverlight Plug-In in Safari 12?
No, there is no way to make the current version of the Silverlight plugin work with Safari 12.
As of today, no actively supported web browser on macOS can run the current Silverlight plugin (neither Safari, Chrome nor Firefox, see below for more information). The culprit is the technology the plugin is based on: NPAPI, which has been deprecated in all major browsers because of security concerns, the latest of them being Safari with version 12.
This means that you must use an unsupported browser, with all the risks that entails.
If you insist on using Silverlight on macOS, I think your "safest" bet would be Firefox 52 ESR for that specific sports site. You can download it from Mozilla's release repository.
Firefox 52 ESR has been replaced with Firefox 60 ESR, but its latest version is somewhat recent, released on June 25 2018.
I had the same problem. A long time ago I used a Browser from Germany called iCab.
I installed the newest iCab version 5.85.5. It cost $10 USD and it works fine with Silverlight on macOS 10.13.6.
I make it work on Mac Mojave
First i uninstall silverlight like is on this site:
Way 1 – Uninstall Silverlight Manually
I did use the app Funter (free) Then i install silverlight again And install seamonkey browser (free)
Then i go to finder, applications i click with the right click of the mouse, get info, and select the option app nap. And it start to work on seamonkey browser
The current version of Google Chrome is running Netflix just fine on my mac. (mid 2010 mini, 10.13.6 High Sierra)
That's the only work around I know for older macs, according to Netflix newer macs will show video in html5.
Install icab browser on mac and it work fine For Downloadin SIlverlight based application
If you have upgraded you safari browser to 12.0 then you cant download silverlight based application you have to download this ICab Browser
Opera browser works just fine as well.
