I'll check it out but is it reliable though? I tried some janky website or whatever last year and although I could pick up the game, the quality and streaming was poor.



I live in another country and am a cord cutter, and I use this website to watch every single game in 1080p. Every now and then I have to settle for 720p. But my internet is smoking and my devices are fast. I'm sure that I will once again pay $0 to watch Bama football in HD for the season. But like I said above, each person should do what they think is best, and not everyone's internet is the same (in both speed and content).

My plan B would be a small handful of android programs, including Kodi, Live NetTV, and TV Tap (among others).

For anyone looking to download some useful android apps, and nice list is located here which includes the download location. To replace Netflix, download Cinema HD or Cyberflix.

I use an antenna (DIY) for local channels and Sling TV for the ESPNs and SEC Network.

I like Sling because it's easy to cancel during the summer months when there's nothing on to watch anyway.

re: So I cut the cord on cable and need help.
A word of warning about r/cfbstreams. Reddit has been banning streaming subs left and right. Mmastreams, mlbstreams, and other major subs have been taken down. A little digging led me to a streaming website that had the latest UFC fight in hq, but it wasn't easy.

Maybe the admins will go a little easier since cfb is so widely available on various platforms but I thought the same thing about mlb before it was banned.

re: So I cut the cord on cable and need help.
I use Gears Reloaded. It's an iptv service. It has hundreds of channels. Including every sports channel you can think of. Even a few porn channels if you're into that. Also has NFL Sunday Ticket, NBA League Pass, NHL Center Ice, MLB Extra Innings and MLS Live. Tons of movie channels and all the PPV sports as well.

All of this for 20 bucks a month. I would recommend purchasing a VPN to go along with it.

This is where I ordered.

I've had it since March. It runs pretty flawlessly with a perfect picture. The guide is smooth and easy to use.

This is true, but CFBstreams has likely survived as there's no central agengy to get mad from a TV perspective like the NFL. We'll see how long it survives.

Seems like they've been cracking down on CFB stuff if youtube is any indication.

I've been watching old games that RollTide1987(I think I'm getting that right) had put up on YouTube and he's not doing it anymore because of how YouTube has been doing.

Especially sucks because YouTube is where I normally go to watch reruns of games.

That's because you clicked his quoted reference to my original link. The link in my post that he quoted works just fine.

I strode on over to see how much Sling TV costs per month, and their website quickly told me in bolded type that it's only available in the US. Did not know that.

re: So I cut the cord on cable and need help.
I have YouTubeTV and it's fantastic. You just have to make sure to turn off any of your score notifications or whatever. It isn't really an issue with football games, but I end up cheating and watching a pitch ahead in Braves games sometimes.

For instance, tonight, I got a buzz that Rendon hit a grand slam about 3 seconds before the pitch. So I started whining and moaning as the pitcher was getting ready for his windup and my wife was very perplexed.

On a related note, is CBS 42 in Birmingham still off DirecTV?
If so, they need to get that straightened out ASAP.

I’ve had Hulu & I’ve got YouTubeTV right now. YouTube TV is better for sports since it has nbatv & mlb network

Youtube TV

At less than 60 bucks a month...

Dropping direct tv has been great. The flexibility that YouTube TV offers is awesome. 6 accounts, with unlimited recording on each, live TV, local channels, all the major sports channels, and premium options with ability to watch on any personal device, anywhere, or cast to a smart TV. The stream works well even on 4G.

We have really enjoyed it. We have netflix, Amazon Prime, and YouTube TV. Haven't missed a thing about standard cable-satellite

I have Sling too but the only problem I have is that you cannot stream more than one ESPN network game at a time. So when the Seminole wifey and son want to watch their game on ESPN 2 or ACC network the same time me and my oldest son need to watch Bama on ESPN we run into problems.

If anyone has found a work around with SLing on this issue let me know.

Have never run into that with YouTubeTV, so maybe switch providers?

I did a trial for all the streaming services, and YouTubeTV was far and away the best, IMO.

I may do that. I carried both Sling and YouTube for about 2 months last football season. IF its not an issue on YouTube then It doesn't hurt to give it a go.

Luckily (for me, not my wife) the Seminoles are usually on at 11a and are losing by the 2nd Q so they either quit watching or its not a conflict at all.
