Top 5 CHEAPEST Ways to Watch College Football for Cord Cutters

Top 5 CHEAPEST Ways to Watch College Football for Cord Cutters


College football is way
easier to watch without a traditional TV subscription
than it used to be. But it is still probably
the trickiest sport to find a really good
cord-cutting option for. But, if you are a
cord-cutter in the market for some college football,
I’ve got the top five ways to watch it, an antenna,
obviously, Sling TV, Hulu Live, ESPN +, and College Sports Live, or some combination of those. Now there are pros and cons anyway you go, of course, so, we’ll need to
go into some of the details on each of these options,
before you can decide which one, or which ones, are right for you. (upbeat music) Now, before we get started,
don’t forget to subscribe and check the description
below for the link to the giveaways that
we’re doing these days, make sure you follow along
there, so, the first thing to note here is which channels
you can actually watch college football on, and
then, we can talk about the best ways to get them. Now, they fall into
three basic categories, your network TV channels,
that’s ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, then, ESPN and FOX Sports,
these are your cable networks, and then you’ve got your
conference specific networks, Big Ten, Pac-12, ACC, SEC,
there are a lot of sub-channels within a lot these, but
those are your basics. So, with that in mind, here
are the top five places to get those channels, so that you can watch college football. First up, an over-the-air
antenna, honestly, this is something that every cord-cutter should have regardless, but,
an antenna’s gonna work great, especially if you can pick
up your local ABC affiliate, ABC is owned by Disney,
which also owns ESPN, so ABC gets some of the biggest
games, every week, so that’s a great option
for you, FOX also carries quite a few, as does NBC, and
NBC is the home of Notre Dame. Next up is Sling TV,
now Sling TV, for $40, you can get the Orange plus Blue package, and that’s gonna get you most
of the ESPN and FOX Sports channels, including
those sub-channels, plus, Sling gets you some
local channels as well, so that could take the
place of the antenna. Now, you can also use any
other streaming service, they’re all gonna be
pretty comparable, but $40 at Sling is the cheapest way to go. Although, if you want
ESPNU, the SEC Network, or the Pac-12 Network,
then you’ll end up paying an extra $10 a month for the sports add-on to Sling TV, but at least
you have the option to save those $10, if you’re thinking
about forking over $50 a month for the Sling combo,
plus the sports package, just go for Hulu Live,
that’s our third option. Now, Hulu Live includes
almost everything Sling does, minus the Pac-12 Network,
but plus, CBS Sports Network, which has a ton of games on there. And it does it for $5 less per month, then you would be paying if
you got Orange plus Blue, and the sports package on Sling. Now, there are other
streaming services out there, and they work fine, I
just think that these two are the best for their value,
as far as what you’re getting, as far as the ESPN and
FOX Sports sub-channels. Next up, ESPN+, now, this is
not going to be a great option if you’re looking for big,
marquee games, but, ESPN+ is only $5 a month, and it’ll get you some of the, kind of overlooked
games, some FCS stuff, that sort of thing. So, this is not going to be
a primary option for you, but it’s a cheap way to
fill out your schedule, if you just love the
game, and you wanna watch as much college sports as possible. Last up, College Sports Live,
this one is $10 a month, so it’s twice as much as
ESPN+, it’s owned by CBS, and it is similar to ESPN+,
in that this will get you a lot of smaller schools, and
smaller games, but it does have some big stuff too, like
partnerships with Notre Dame, USC, Penn State, now
there is a catch though, this one only airs
non-televised games, so, if the game is airing somewhere
else, it won’t be here. So, those are my top five ways
to watch college football, if I missed any of your favorites,
drop them in the comments below, I would love to hear
them, make sure you give this video a like if you
thought it was helpful, a dislike if you didn’t, but
also, be sure to subscribe because we got a lot more
streaming content like this, thanks for watching everybody,
I’ll see you next time.

  1. What about you tube TV they have an excellent sport package IE ESPN, Big Ten, Golf Channel ! $50.00 per month !

  2. Stop being cheap, get YouTube TV or PlayStation Vue and be done with it. I have Vue and I NEVER have to worry about any of this. There, that's all you had to say.

  3. Value isn’t always about price. To me better value is about what you get for that price and what the REAL cost is.

    Sorry but I would have to put YouTube TV above Sling and Hulu if you are a big college football fan. Yes they have a higher advertised cost than Sling and Hulu but you also have to ask what is the real cost. True enough you have an option to save $10 with Sling but let’s be real, 99% of people who are sports fans are going to add that $10 package along with the $5 DVR so you are already higher than YouTube TV and they have a better DVR. Almost the same thing with Hulu. Even though it comes with a DVR for that $45 price if you want the ability to fast forward you have to pay more. Personally I rather have the one upfront price and if you know you are going to want a DVR not only does YouTube TV offer a better value interns if features, in real cost it’s cheaper.

  4. Playstation Vue core package cost a little more but you get ACC Network, Big 10 network, CBS sports, ESPN, ESPN 2, ESPN News, ESPNU, FS1, FS2, NBC Sports, and SEC Network

  5. If anyone is wondering about the Longhorn Network the streaming options suck. You will need ATT Now or Sony Playstation View. One other option exists with Sling O+B package, it gives you login permissions to watch it on the ESPN app.

  6. $50 Youtube TV has all the college football for my needs. It even has ACC now, Best of all you have unlimited cloud DVR to record every game.
