This is a comprehensive guide on how to watch college football for free on Firestick and other Android-based devices. The guide lists and reviews several free and paid apps and addons.
The 2022-23 college football season has kicked off, with the first match having been played on Thursday, September 1. This is one of the most exciting and anticipated sports in the US, and fans can now enjoy watching their favorite teams in action all through January 9, when the CFP National Championship Game is scheduled to take place in Los Angeles.
The only problem with watching college football games is that the rights are usually distributed between several local and national sports networks, so you may struggle to catch the action live if you don’t have cable. However, there are alternatives that will still let you enjoy any game without cable. This guide will take you through several apps you can use and let you know the precautions you should take along the way.
How to Watch NCAA College Football on Firestick
Below, we’ll get into the details and highlight the best apps you can use to watch your favorite teams.
Method 1: Stream College Football Online 2022 using Official Apps
ESPN provides the best way you can watch NCAA football in the US. The streaming service will be streaming more than 500 games featuring teams from FBS conferences like the SEC, Big 12, The American, ACC, C-USA, MAC and Sun Belt, and FCS schools from the Big Sky, MVFC, Patriot League, Ivy League, Southern, Southland, MEAC, and SWAC.
ESPN+ does not offer a free trial but only costs $6.99 a month. However, to access the service outside the US, you will need to use a reliable streaming VPN such as Surfshark. The VPN comes with hundreds of servers in the US, and it offers excellent streaming speeds.
Cable TV Alternative Streaming Apps
College Football games for this season will be split between lots of channels, spanning local-broadcasting networks and national broadcasting networks. These include ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, CBSSN, FS1, and multiple ESPN channels. The only way you can access most of these channels using official streaming apps is by relying on alternative cable TV streaming services as they carry most of these channels.
- fuboTV: 7-day free trial, $69.99 a month
- Hulu + Live TV + Disney + ESPN+: $69.99 a month
- Sling TV: 3-day free trial, $35 a month
- DirectTV Stream (Choice Tier): 5-day free trial, $69.99 for the first 10 months
- YouTube TV: 7-day free trial, $64.99 a month
Note that you will need to have a US payment method for all these streaming services (some accept gift cards, though). All of them are also geo-restricted, so ensure that you have Surfshark connected before you start the apps.
Method 2: How to Watch College Football Online using Free Apks
Besides the premium apps mentioned above, there are also several free live streaming apks that will provide streams for the various matches in the competition. These apps carry most of the live TV channels that will be broadcasting matches, so you will enjoy the convenience.
However, there are some precautions you need to take before you start streaming on these apps.
⚠ Free Streaming Precautions
Free sports streaming has been a huge source of concern for many years among broadcasters and content distributors. This is because, in many cases, these streams are pirated.
👀 To curb the practice, broadcasters have collaborated with ISPs and governments, and the result has been blocking streams, sending copyright notices, and taking legal action.
👉 For these reasons, we highly advise that you use a VPN if you wish to watch college football for free on Firestick. This will help hide your activities and anonymize your connection to make you untraceable.
✋ However, you’ll also need to choose your VPN carefully as some do not offer good privacy, and others are simply streaming nightmares.
