No one could have foreseen what happened at the Miami Beach Bowl, with Ohio running out on San Diego St without leaving them a point to their name. The games between Toledo and FIU, as well as the GA Southern and Eastern MI matchup, were tighter though.
This sort of variation has just gone on to prove how interesting we expected this bowl season to be. If you haven’t started seeing the college football games yet, here’s the guide you need to get started.
Watching via Cable
The first point of call is for those that still have cable running. This has been the most widely used approach for watching the games up till now. In fact, we don’t need to tell you what channelsyou should look at to get the games.
That being said, we do have a couple of reservations about cable. Some of these are due to the fact that:
- Cable is expensive. If the reason why you were keeping your cable TV subscription alive is to watch college football, then it is even more expensive than you know.
- Cable is only limited to the US. This means those in other countries won’t be able to get the games. Afterall, they don’t get serviced by the same cable TV companies
- Those travelling other countries at the time of the games won’t be able to watch it either. It doesn’t even matter if they have cable TV subscription running at home. The geo-blocking around the content alone is that strong.
- Even though you are paying the premium price for cable, you will still be subject to game blackouts from time to time.
Other Streaming Options
Now that cable is out of the way, you should know that there are other ways to get the NCAA college football content. Some of our top options are:
- Sling TV: Sling TV has a $25/ month streaming package which offers you more than 30 channels – of which many will allow you watch the college football games.You can get started with their 7-day free trial package to see if they are the right choice for you.
- YouTube TV: At $40/ month, YouTube TV offers more than 60+ channels which contains all of FS1 and FS2, the CBS Sports and SEC Network. If you are wary about payingthis fee, they allow you use the platform for free over the first 14 days. Afterwards, you will be able to decide if they work for you or not.
- Hulu with Live TV:This goes for the same price as the YouTube TV offering, but they offer lesser channels. If the college football games are what you are interested in though, the 50+ channels on displaywon’t be an issue for you.
- ESPN+: Even ESPN has gotten in on all the cord cutting action, providing you with one of the most cost-effective options. Costing $4.99/ month, you will be able to get mostly mid-major games when they are happening
- fuboTV: fuboTV is for those who already have ESPN but would still like to get the Big Ten and Pac-12 networks. You get to start with the 7-dayfree trial, and also get access to all of FOX, CBS, NBC and FS1.
Possible Streaming Problems
Even though all of the streaming fixes above work, they only work for those in the US. That is still because of the content limitations placed on college football distribution to places outside the target market.
The good news is that college football can be streamed online with a VPN, and from anywhere in the world too.
To enjoy that benefit:
- get a VPN
- connect to a preferred server location in the US
- sign up to your preferred streaming platform
- enjoy the games anytime they are being played
As promised, that’s everything you should know about watching the college football games from anywhere. Why not get started today?
