PlayStation Vue offers a great streaming experience, good features, and a solid channel package. However, it’s a bit more on the expensive side and has failed to gain much widespread adoption, despite these benefits.

PlayStation Vue Pricing and Packages

With PlayStation Vue, you can choose from a total of 4 different channel packages, starting at $44.99/month for about 45 channels with the Access package, up to 84+ channels for the Ultra package. Learn more here.

PlayStation Vue Channels

To watch SEC Network without cable, you’ll need a “Core” or higher subscription to PlayStation Vue.

In addition to SEC Network, you’ll get some other top sports channels, including ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and ESPNews, CBS Sports, BTN, FS1 and FS2, The Golf Channel, NBCSN, NFL Network and NBA TV, MLB Network, and a few regional sports networks, depending on your area.

If that’s not enough for you, you can add the $10/month Sports Pack to your subscription to get more than 20 Fox and NBC regional sports networks, NFL RedZone, ESPN Classic and ESPN Goal Line, and more. Learn more here

PlayStation Vue Supported Devices

Device support is surprisingly good for PlayStation Vue. Naturally, you can stream on PlayStation 3 and 4 consoles, but also on your computer, and your iOS/Android smartphone or tablet. Other living-room devices that are supported include the Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Apple TV, and Android TV. Learn more here.

PlayStation Vue Simultaneous Streams

PlayStation Vue has great features, particularly for those who live in larger households and must share their internet TV subscription. To start off, you can stream on up to 5 devices at once with PlayStation Vue. That’s more than any other option on our list, beyond Hulu With Live TV + the Unlimited Screens package, which costs a steep extra fee. Learn more here.

PlayStation Vue DVR

You also get a 28-day unlimited DVR with PlayStation Vue. The short time limit is a bit disappointing, but there are no other restrictions on how much content you can record, and 28 days is long enough for most folks to clear out their DVR backlog. Learn more here

PlayStation Vue On-Demand Library

You can find a good selection of on-demand content from each of the channels carried by PlayStation Vue, including episodes of some top shows, past seasons and a selection of movies. Get a full breakdown here.

If you’re interested in a low-budget way to watch SEC Network without cable, as well as a number of other top sports channels, Sling TV is a good option. It’s the cheapest one on our list, and offers a reasonable set of features and channels for SEC fans.

Sling TV Pricing and Packages

Sling TV has two primary channel packages: Sling Orange, and Sling Blue. Both cost $25. You’ll get 30+ channels with Sling Orange, and about 40 or more channels with Sling Blue. You can combine both of them to get 53+ channels with Sling Orange + Blue. Learn more here.

Sling TV Channels

The Sling Orange version comes with SEC Network and ESPNews, while the Sling Blue version doesn’t include SEC Network, and has other channels like the Olympic Channel. If you get Sling Orange + Blue, you’ll get both sets of channels from the Sports Pack.

To get SEC Network, though, you’ll need to get Sling Orange and the Sports Extra package, which costs an extra $10 per month. Confusingly, the Sports Extra package comes with different channels, based on which base-tier subscription you have. Learn more here.

Sling TV Supported Devices

Device support for Sling TV is pretty good. You can watch on your web browser as well as iOS and Android devices on the go. Most living-room devices are supported too, including Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, AirTV, Chromecast, Xbox One, and some Samsung/LG Smart TVs. Learn more here.

Sling TV Simultaneous Streams

You can watch on 3 devices with Sling Blue and 1 device with Sling Orange. If you have Sling Orange + Blue, you can watch on 4 devices, but only if the channel is shared between both the Blue and Orange packages. Yeah, it’s confusing.

To boil it down, you can only watch SEC Network on 1 device at a time, even if you have Orange+Blue because it’s a Sling Orange-exclusive channel. The same goes for all other Orange-exclusive channels. Learn more here.

Sling TV DVR

Sling TV has pretty good features – if you pay for them. Let’s start with the DVR. You’ll get 50 hours of storage, which is great. But you’ll have to pay $5/month for the privilege of the DVR, and recording on some Disney-owned channels is blocked, so you may not even be able record SEC Network.

Sling TV On-Demand Library

Sling TV has a good number of on-demand shows, including some past seasons and recently-aired episodes, as well as a solid selection of movies from its partner networks. You can get a full breakdown of the Sling TV on-demand library here.

YouTube TV DVR

YouTube TV has, perhaps, the best overall features of any modern internet TV service. With its cloud DVR, you can record as many shows or events as you want for 9 months, with no other limits. This makes YouTube TV the best choice for anyone who tends to record a lot of TV. You can also create up to 6 separate user accounts, each of which receives a separate DVR. Learn more here.

Owned by AT&T, DirecTV Now is one of the fastest-growing internet TV services, with a great lineup of channels and some recently-improved features, such as the addition of a cloud DVR. But is it a good way to watch SEC Network without cable? Find out.

DirecTV Now Pricing and Packages

DirecTV Now offers a total of seven different packages, as follows:

  • Choice: 85+ channels / $110 per month
  • Xtra: 105+ channels /  $124 per month
  • Ultimate: 125+ channels / $135 per month

To get SEC Network, you’ll need to subscribe to the Max or higher package, so this is the most expensive option on our list by quite a bit. If you’re interested, you can learn more about what’s included in each package here. 

DirecTV Now Channels

Depending on your DirecTV Now package, you can get SEC Network, as well as ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPNU as well as ESPNews, as well as FS1, BTN, NBCSN, NFL Network, and Tennis Channel. Other sports channels offered include FS2, Golf Channel, and CBS Sports. Learn more here.

DirecTV Now Simultaneous Streams

You also can only watch on 2 devices at once, though DirecTV Now has started offering a third stream for a $5/monthly additional fee. Still, this is disappointing compared to some other picks on our list, like PlayStation Vue and YouTube TV. Learn more here.

DirecTV Now DVR

DirecTV Now only includes a 20-hour DVR, and your content will be automatically deleted after 30 days. There is currently no way to get more storage space. Learn more here.

DirecTV Now On-Demand Library

DirecTV Now claims to have more than 40,000 on-demand titles, but this depends on the package you subscribe to, since each individual cable network provides a selection of content to DirecTV Now. Get a full breakdown of the DirecTV Now on-demand library here.

How to Watch SEC Network on Amazon Fire TV

You can watch SEC Network on Amazon Fire TV with one of these streaming services: PlayStation Vue, Sling TV, Hulu With Live TV, or DirecTV Now. To get started, just download the app for the service you’ve chosen on the Amazon App Store, and then sign in.

All of the above services will also let you sign in on the WatchESPN App for Fire TV, and watch SEC Network content without cable.

How to Watch SEC Network on Roku

You can watch SEC Network on Roku with one of these streaming services: PlayStation Vue, Sling TV, Hulu With Live TV, YouTube TV, or DirecTV Now. To begin, just add the channel for the streaming service you’re using from the Roku Channel Store. Then sign in, and you’ll be good to go.

Alternatively, you can download the WatchESPN channel for Roku, sign in with any of the above services, and watch SEC Network content on Roku directly through the WatchESPN app.

How to Watch SEC Network on Apple TV

You can watch SEC Network on Apple TV with one of these streaming services: PlayStation Vue, Sling TV, Hulu With Live TV, YouTube TV, or DirecTV Now. To get started, all you have to do open up the App Store and download the app for the streaming service you’re going to be using.

WatchESPN

If you subscribed to any of the above services to watch SEC Network without cable, we’ve got good news for you. Your internet TV login will work just like a cable login and allow you to watch SEC Network without cable, using the WatchESPN app or website.

To get started, just download the app or head to the website. Then, use your Hulu, Sling, YouTube TV, DirecTV Now, or PlayStation Vue login to unlock the content. You can watch any ESPN channel that’s part of your subscription, including SEC Network.

Why do this at all? Well, it’s nice to have the flexibility to watch directly from the app or website, for one thing. But another benefit is that, when you stream through WatchESPN, this doesn’t count against your simultaneous streams on your preferred internet TV service.

For example, if you have Sling Orange – which only lets you stream on a single device – you could log into WatchESPN while someone else is using your Sling Orange subscription, and you could still watch SEC Network without cable.
