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 local NBC, FOX, CBS and ABC stations across the U.S. Subscribers can watch live TV on two screens at once within the Hulu app.
A lot of live TV streaming services hover around $64.99 per month.
But Hulu includes 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. 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.
