Are you able to watch Georgia home games on Hulu?

Yes sir. If I remember right you get SEC Network included in the Hulu package so if it’s not on Hulu proper you can switch over to ESPN.

Hulu package I have is Hulu live and I can watch just about anything live... Plus I have all the saved shows and such. I think it's $78-$82 a month. Still cheaper than I was paying for DISH. Like $155 I told them GTH...

The one year I did this, I used SlingTV for secn, and cbssports streamed all the cbs games for free. I think I got all the games and only had to go to a bar or friends house once or twice. This was 2015 or 2016 though, the streaming services have changed so much since then.

That shite pissed me off. Loved the service but they went up like $25 a month in two years. And added bull shite like electric boogaloo to justify it. Canceled mine last month

I am not tech savvy at all. How do I get Hulu live on my TV? I don't have a Smart TV. It appears that it will cost $55 a month.

re: OT-Watching football online.
If you don't have a smart tv you'll need either an xbox, apple tv, roku, or fire stick. I have little experience with the chromecast but that is I think the cheapest option.

So you'll need that, the internet tv plan of your choosing, and ideally an internet speed capable of streaming. You can get away with as little as 5-10mbps but keep in mind each tv streaming eats into that bandwidth.

So, if you seriously wanted to do this I'd suggest you decide what you want in a platform (Apple Tv, Roku, etc.), what your current/future internet speed will be, and finally if you think it's worth it. My Uncle and Dad are both big CFB guys and I wouldn't say either are terribly tech savvy. My uncle got PSVue (playstation tv) and they had a hell of a time with it but also saved a shitload of cash. My dad pays stupid prices for DirecTV but chooses to because he prefers the simplicity and ease of mind that comes with it.

Really it all depends. Personally, my current plans arent all that much more than what I'd do if I just paid for internet & internet tv so I stuck with DirecTV as well. That said, renewal season is coming up soon and if the #s make sense I'll cut the cord. My main reservations thus far have been largely nullified to this point. Namely, my biggest point of contention was losing the stream mid game or the service itself puttering out. Back when this was all newer, you'd see ESPN's app go down and I have been places more than once where you had to reset the platform to get the game back going. I think most of this has been remedied but, still, always that risk. Granted, with my tv now a rain storm is gonna screw me over so nothing is perfect.

My step-daughter got me a Roku thing for my birthday. She and my granddaughter set it up and we are included on all the stuff she has at her house. Looks like I may cut the cable in a couple of months after I see how I like it.
Found a place that has about 50 John Wayne westerns. Going to watch Rio Lobo tonight. Stagecoach and Red River Saturday night. Haven't seen those in years.
