Watch SEC Network Live Stream
There are lots to ways you can watch SEC Network live and catch all your games out of the Southeastern Conference without cable.
So forget about spending a couple hundred dollars a month on Comcast or DIRECTV. This guide shows you how to live stream SEC Network on a Roku, Fire TV, Firestick, Apple TV and even your iPhone.
What’s the best way to watch college football on SEC Network live?
I think the best deal right now is Hulu with Live TV. You’re getting 50+ channels, including SEC Network, and other essential sports networks. ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, FS1, FS2, and Big Ten Network are all part of the channel lineup.
Hulu’s Live TV package is also the best deal for most people because it carries more local NBC, FOX, CBS and ABC stations than any other live streaming service in the U.S.
Hulu with Live TV offers a free 7-day trial for new customers. You can easily cancel online if you don’t like it. Unlike cable or satellite TV, there are no hidden fees or contracts.
A lot of live TV streaming services hover around $40 per month, but Hulu is a better deal because you’re also getting unlimited access to its on-demand library that people pay $7.99 per month and up for. That’s the same one with shows from A&E, NBC, and Hulu Originals like Castle Rock. So you’re getting two streaming services for the price of one.
Here are a few other ways to live stream SEC Network without cable, and cut the cord from your cable or satellite TV subscription.
Watch SEC Network Online with Sling TV
The cheapest way to watch SEC Network is with Sling TV.
You can subscribe to the Sling Orange channel bundle for $25 per month. That gets you roughly 30 channels alone, including ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, CNN and HGTV.
To get SEC Network and SEC Network Plus, you’ll need to add the Sports Extra bundle for another $5 per month. The Sports Extra bundle paired with Sling Orange will also get you some other college football essentials, including ESPNU and PAC-12 Network.
Here’s something important to know: regional sports channels like Fox Sports and NBCSN are part of the Sling Blue package, which also costs $25 per month. If you get Sling Orange and Sling Blue together, it’s $40 per month for both. And Cloud DVR is $5 per month for 50 hours. So Sling TV is a good budget option if you keep it simple.

YouTube TV: Watch SEC Network live without cable
With YouTube TV, you can live stream SEC Network and about 50+ channels for $40 per month. Customers get unlimited Cloud DVR, which is really nice.

How to watch Big Ten Football on NBC, CBS and ABC
Live streaming TV is just a much better way to watch college football than the traditional way offered by cable. But even an ideal streaming service might not have your local NBC or ABC station that’s airing a game.
A TV antenna can get you those essential channels with a HD picture that’s better than what a cable company is delivering into your home. Head over to AntennaWeb and plug in your zip code to see what broadcast towers are near you.
After you plug an antenna in the coax jack in the rear of your TV, go under settings and scan for “Air TV” or over-the-air channels. For more tips on choosing an antenna, read my months-long studies: The Best Indoor TV Antennas of 2018 and How to Choose the Best TV Antenna & DVR.
