Here's how to watch college football without cable - we've broken down the options so you won't miss your favorite teams and matchups
- The end of summer may be sad, but it's not entirely negative. The beginning of autumn means sweater weather, apple cider, and most importantly, college football.
- Whether you're raised to say "Go Blue," "Roll Tide," or "War Eagle," a new season means Saturdays that start early with ESPN College GameDay and end late with ABC's matchup of the week.
- If you have cable, you probably already have access to a majority of the broadcasts. Games take place mainly on ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, ESPN and their corresponding channels, along with conference-specific networks like Big Ten, SEC, Pac-12, and ACC.
- If you have cut the cord and still want to get in on the action, Hulu with Live TV, Sling TV, and fuboTV, are the best streaming services to sign up for to get your college football fix.
Social media videos of training camp and never-ending wells of fan threads on r/CFB have helped satiate our collective thirst for football, but we don't have to wait any longer. College football is back.
It's time to whip out your barbecues, throw on your jerseys, and hope your team doesn't keep losing to its biggest rival - who happens to have a fervent supporter in the form of your desk-neighbor at work.However, if you have cut the cable cord, finding the best way to watch can be challenging. There are cheap alternatives like antennas that let you tune in to local channels without a cable subscription, but if you don't live in the market of your favorite team or want access to more games, you'll need to upgrade to a streaming service.
Ultimately, to watch all the games you'll need access to the major national networks like ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, and ESPN and all of their corresponding subchannels. Additionally, many games are broadcast on conference-specific networks like the Big Ten, SEC, ACC, and Pac-12.
The problem is, there isn't one streaming service that lets you get every single option in one fell swoop. Below, we've broken down what is offered by each service so you can choose the option that best fits your preferences.
