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 65+ 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.
A lot of live TV streaming services hover around $64.99 per month, but Hulu is a better deal because you’re also getting unlimited access to its on-demand library that people pay $5.99 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.
Hulu + Live TV has a free 7-day trial — and it’s also available to Hulu on-demand subscribers.
You can easily cancel online if you don’t like it. Unlike cable or satellite TV, there are no hidden fees or contracts.
Here are a few other ways to live stream SEC Network without cable, and cut the cord from your cable or satellite TV subscription.

If you get Sling Orange and Sling Blue together, it’s $50 per month for both. And 50 hours of Cloud DVR is included with a subscription. You can get 200 hours for $5 per month.

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 and How to Choose the Best TV Antenna & DVR.
