fuboTV Channels

If you opt for the $54.99 “fubo” package, you’ll get a pretty good number of sports channels, including CBS/Fox/NBC,  Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports 2, Fox RSNs for your area, NBCSN, PAC-12 Network, CBS Sports Network, BTN, Eleven Sports, and beIN Sports.

You can add even more channels, like Stadium, by upgrading to a pricier package. Alternatively, the fubo Sports Plus add-on costs $9/month and will get you some additional Pac-12 networks and regional sports networks, as well as Stadium 1, 2 and 3.

The biggest problem? You don’t get any ESPN-owned channels like ESPN, ESPN U, or SEC Network. This may be a dealbreaker if you want to follow the biggest NCAA football leagues. Learn more here.

fuboTV Supported Devices

fuboTV device support is also good. You can watch NCAA football without cable on your iOS/Android device, on your web browser, and on your Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, or Amazon Fire TV. Learn more here.

fuboTV Simultaneous Streams

With fuboTV, you can stream on an industry-standard 2 devices at once, and stream on a third device for a $6/month fee. Learn more here.

fuboTV DVR

fuboTV has a decent set of features. You can record up to 30 hours of content using the free cloud DVR, and upgrade to 500 hours of storage for a $10/month fee. Learn more here.

fuboTV On-Demand Library

Along with your fuboTV subscription, you will get a wide variety of on-demand content. Each channel carried in your subscription package will provide its own on-demand shows and movies. Learn more here.

Sling TV is one of the first internet TV services. It first launched in 2015. Owned by DISH Network, it’s a pretty good way to watch NCAA football without cable, but the confusing channel packages can make it difficult to get the best deal.

Sling TV Pricing and Packages

Sling TV offers three basic channel packages. Sling Orange and Sling Blue both cost $25/month, and come with slightly different channels. You can combine both with Sling Orange + Blue for $40/month. Learn more here.

Sling TV Channels

If you opt for Sling Orange, you’ll get ESPN and ESPN-owned channels, including ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, and ACC Network. Sling Blue gives you local broadcast networks like Fox and NBC. ABC and CBS are not available, as well as Fox Sports 1 and 2, Fox Sports RSNs, NBCSN. You can combine both packages for $40/month, which is what we’d recommend if you want to watch NCAA football without cable.

You can add even more coverage with the Sports Extra add-on. Confusingly, this add-on has different channels and a different price, based on which package you choose.

The add-on costs $5/month for Sling Orange and will get you SEC Network and SEC Network+, Pac-12 Network, ESPN U, beIN Sports, Stadium, and ESPN Goal Line, and some other channels.

For Sling Blue, the add-on costs $10/month and will get you beIN Sports, Pac-12 Network, and Stadium, among a few others. Learn more here.

Sling TV Supported Devices

Sling TV has good device support. Naturally, web browsers and all modern Android/iOS devices are supported. You can also watch Sling on major “living room” devices like Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Apple TV, and Roku. Learn more here.

Sling TV Simultaneous Streams

Sling TV’s confusing nature doesn’t stop with the channel packages available. You also get different features based on your channel package. Sling Blue channels can be streamed on 3 devices at once, while Orange-exclusive channels can only be streamed on a single device. There is no way to get around this limit. Learn more here.

Sling TV DVR

In addition, you have to pay $5/month for a cloud DVR with 50 hours of storage if you’d like to record any content on Sling TV. That means Sling Orange + Blue, the Sports Package, and DVR service puts you at a steep $55/month bill. Learn more here.

Sling TV On-Demand Library

If you want to watch on-demand content, you’ll get plenty from Sling TV. Most of the networks included in your subscription will provide you with a few recently-aired episodes of top shows, some past seasons, and a variety of top movies. Learn more here.

AT&T TV Now is the new name for DirecTV Now. While it offers a good number of channels and is a decent way to watch NCAA Football without cable, getting comprehensive NCAA football coverage is expensive, and AT&T TV Now is a bit lacking when it comes to features.

AT&T TV Now On-Demand Library

You can get up to 40,000 on-demand titles with AT&T TV Now, but this depends on the package you choose, since each channel provides its own content.

Watch NCAA Football Without Cable With An OTA Antenna

One of the big issues you may run into when choosing one of the above “skinny bundles” is getting all of your local ABC/CBS/FOX/NBC broadcast channels.

Because each one of these “Big Four” affiliates is owned by different companies, each streaming service like Sling TV and fuboTV must negotiate with them independently. This means you may not be able to get all of them with your preferred internet TV service.

So, what’s the best alternative? An OTA antenna! If you buy and set up an OTA (Over-The-Air) antenna, you may be able to get all of your local broadcast networks on your TV for free, allowing you to watch major NCAA games at no cost to you.

For more information, check out this guide to OTA TV by Flixed.

How to Watch NCAA Football on Amazon Fire TV

You can watch NCAA Football on Amazon Fire TV with one of these streaming services: fuboTV, Hulu With Live TV, Sling TV, AT&T TV Now or PlayStation Vue.

How to Watch NCAA Football on Roku

You can watch NCAA Football on Roku with one of these streaming services: fuboTV, Hulu With Live TV, Sling TV, AT&T TV Now, PlayStation Vue or YouTube TV. To get started, just download the proper channel for one of these services using the Roku Channel Store. Then log in, and enjoy watching NCAA football on Roku.

How to Watch NCAA Football on Apple TV
