How To Watch Alabama Football Online
The University of Alabama is one of the premier college football programs in the sport. With a legacy of great coaches from Bear Bryant to Nick Saban and nearly twenty national championships to go along with dozens of SEC championships, they’ve got the credentials to compete with anyone.
The Alabama Crimson Tide sets the standards in terms of being among the top programs year after year. Under the guidance of coach Saban, Alabama consistently pulls in one of the best recruiting classes in the country. Suffice it to say that the Crimson Tide will remain one of college football’s best teams for the foreseeable future.
We List 3 Places To Stream Alabama Games Online:
(1) SEC Network:
The Crimson Tide are members of the Southeastern Conference which is great news for fans wanting to watch them online. The SEC’s television network (The SEC Network) is the largest college sports conference TV platform in the country. Their partnership with ESPN gives them access to an audience of more than 75 million viewers but, in addition, provides them with cutting edge digital resources. ESPN gets high marks for their streaming and mobile services, and now they’re available to SEC Network viewers.
If you’re already a cable or satellite TV subscriber and your service carries the SEC Network you don’t need to do anything else to access Alabama football games online. You can log in to the SEC Network’s web interface or watch the games on the go with your smartphone or tablet. If you’re not a subscriber, you can subscribe to the SlingTV service and get a package of premium television networks streaming to your computer or mobile device. The basic service is $20 and includes ESPN and ESPN2, but $5 extra adds the ‘Sports Package’ which includes the SEC Network. Between ESPN and the SEC Network, you’ve got the entire Crimson Tide Football schedule covered.
Outside of the US, Alabama fans have several options to watch games online. ESPN offers ‘streaming only’ subscriptions to viewers in some countries and this package includes the SEC Network along with all of the ESPN networks. This arrangement gives foreign viewers the same type of high-quality video and dependable service that US viewers enjoy. The price for this subscription is reasonable and covers the entire range of ESPN programming.
(3) Other Live Streaming Sites
Fans that aren’t able to subscribe to the ESPN ‘streaming only’ package will have to be a little more creative. Fortunately, Alabama ranks among the highest profile teams in college football. Their games are very easy to find on any of the ‘live sports streaming’ websites. While these sites vary widely in terms of quality (and safety) some of the best are ADTHE, LiveBall.TV or Stream2Watch. It’s almost certain that you’ll be able to find every Alabama football game in a variety of formats and stream qualities.
Looking for a live 24/7 feed of the SEC Network is not as easy, but it’s still possible if you’re willing to do some research. Google is a great place to start as are Crimson Tide fan message boards and websites. There are a few sites that provide a directory of 24/7 network streams from around the world with Stream2Video.TV considered one of the best. 24/7 network feeds are very hit and miss, however, and nowhere near as dependable as individual game streams.
