It’s Pac-12 season, everyone, so it’s time to pay for cable for a couple of months and then shut it off as soon as you’re done. Mostly joking, of course, but there are many who are very iffy on spending so much on cable just so they can watch some of their favorite sports on TV.
If you’re more frugal-minded, then we have some options for you to consider so you can enjoy your favorite sports without having to shell the prices they ask for. They’re called fuboTV and Sling. They’re paid TV streaming services and are the only major streaming services that carry Pac-12 Network. If you’ve never tried these, both services offer free trials and promotional discounts if you’re a new signup. The best part is that they’re pretty easy to access. You can watch it through a Smart TV, or you can use HDTV with the aid of a streaming device such as Apple TV, Roku, and Amazon Fire Stick. You can also watch it on your computer and on your phone, so you’re able to catch the game on the bus, in a hotel, or in the office when your boss isn’t looking.
If you want to watch the games on the fuboTV, they have a free trial, and then it’s $85.98/month, plus an additional $8/month for the Sports Plus Package to add the Pac-12 Network. Not only does this have the Pac-12, but they also have most channels that offer nationally-televised college football games, such Fox and CBS Sports Network. It also allows you to have two concurrent viewers.
Sling is also an option, and it’s by far the cheapest way to watch the Pac-12, although they do have two plans (Orange or Blue) that split up the channels and make things more confusing for a sports fan to have a complete experience. However, they do have the complete “Orange and Blue” package, which is only $50/month, but you’ll also need to get the “Sports Extra” package, which is $15/month. Still cheaper than a lot of other options, to be frank.
Whatever you choose, whether it’s cable or a streaming service, it’s a heck of a lot better than going to some dodgy streaming site filled with popup ads. Or maybe it isn’t — maybe you like having your computer filled up with viruses. You do you.
