When I want to use "despite" in the sentence, is this sentence right?:
I like watching TV, despite I don't play it.
Usually "despite + noun or gerund".
So the correct sentence would be "I like to watch hockey, al(though) I don't play it myself".

Despite is a preposition whose object is a noun (clause/phrase).
I like watching football, despite the fact that I do not play it?
Are these confronting ideas in the two clauses, anyway?
IMO, they do not.
