With the summer’s heat giving way to the cool embrace of autumn, it’s time for another exciting season that many eagerly anticipate… football season! The 2023 football season promises to be remarkable, with significant changes in college football team conferences and the addition of major new players to the NFL ranks. However, alongside the excitement of the sport itself, there have been notable shifts in how fans enjoy their football games. These changes in the broadcasting landscape may leave many fans concerned about accessing their favorite teams and the best games of the week.
Luckily, S&T, your trusted cable provider, offers a reliable and high-quality source for live college and NFL football games. We’re here to emphasize that cable remains a viable and convenient entertainment option for all football enthusiasts. Below, we’ll guide you through where to watch both college and NFL football this season, all with the convenience of cable TV.
Streaming College Football
This season, college football fans can look forward to exciting match-ups. While traditional networks such as ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC broadcast many marquee games, accessing all the action may require additional providers. The landscape of college football channels can initially seem complex, but we’re here to simplify it for you.
Some networks have exclusive deals with conferences and schools for key match-ups. Fox covers the Big Ten, CBS features the SEC, and NBC is the perennial home of Notre Dame football. However, it’s ESPN and its affiliated channels that provide comprehensive college football coverage. To enjoy the full spectrum of college games, access to ESPN ,ESPN2, ESPNU and their networks is essential. Additionally, Fox Sports 1 carries most notably
Big Ten, Pac-12 and Big 12 conferences. Don’t forget about channels dedicated to other specific college football conferences, such as the Longhorn Network and SEC, which have their own networks, as do the ACC.
But here’s the great news: you don’t need a cable cord to access all of this, thanks to the high-speed internet from S&T. For cord-cutters and streamers seeking to access these channels, the first step is to choose a live streaming TV app that suits your preferences.
Hulu + Live TV, for example, offers a fantastic option due to its partnership with Disney and ESPN. It provides streaming access to all college football games available on ESPN’s channels, along with most live network channels. FuboTV, originally tailored for sports, is another popular choice for college football fans. Sling TV’s Orange + Blue package also includes a range of channels for many games. Ensure that the streaming apps and channels you select cover your favorite teams and conferences, and you’ll be all set to enjoy the college football season.
NFL Football Streaming Options
For professional football fans, there are numerous ways to watch your favorite teams and rivals alike. Like college football, networks such as CBS and Fox broadcast AFC and NFC games on Sundays. However, local market games and potential blackouts can limit your options.
Fortunately, advancements in streaming technology and high-speed internet, like S&T’s broadband network, offer a new way to follow the entire NFL season with ease. NFL fans have several options, each catering to different preferences and budgets.
Let’s start with the premium choice for live football streaming: NFL Sunday Ticket on YouTube TV. While it may be pricey, die-hard NFL fans will find it indispensable, granting access to nearly any NFL game you desire. Whether your team plays in your local market or not, you can follow them closely, and even switch to other games in progress when needed. It’s a phenomenal way to stay connected to the NFL action this year.
Of course, not everyone requires the extensive coverage of NFL Sunday Ticket. To enjoy all NFL games this season, you may also need access to other streaming football apps and channels, such as Prime Video’s Thursday Night Football exclusives and NBC’s Peacock app for Sunday Night Football.
Just like with college football, having a live streaming TV app is essential for basic viewing. YouTube TV, Fubo, Sling TV’s Orange + Blue package, and Hulu + Live TV with its ESPN connections are all excellent choices, especially for accessing Monday Night Football. Monday Night Football has also had a long-term relationship with ESPN on cable.
