Is There A Way To Watch College Sports Online/free

Fri Dec 29, 2006 2:22 am

Hello College Sports Fans,

I was just wondering if there is any way to watch college sports events for free via internet. Via cable or satellite you can only receive NASN here in Germany and they only show some selected games here.
I would really like to see the Holiday Bowl. I could pay for the game on ESPN.com, but I wouldnt consider 15$ to be very cheap and I am afraid that it might not work since I am living overseas.
I already tried to google something up, but I couldnt find a solution to that problem. I tried a program called TVUplayer that should be able to show ESPN live streams, but it didnt work for me.

Any ideas would be appreciated!

Do you have any sportsbars around where you live? They might show something

Hmm, good idea, but I dont know any in my area. Furthermore, considering the game is during the week and we have a 9h time difference most bars will be closed by then anyway.

TVUplayer works like a charm! I've be using it for the entire NCAAFB and NFL season so far.

Do you get ESPN with that player? I think the game tonight is only televised on ESPN, right?

You sure do! Try to download here, or send me PM with your e-mail and I'll e-mail you the program.

Never heard of this. Does it do the same the other way? As in showing Norwegian TV in the US?  Smile

You can watch some stuff via CSTV.com online though you do have to subscribe to their XXL package (I think that's what it is called) for $9/month or so. You get tons of other college sports as well beyond football.

I subscribed to it while I was in Manchester so I could listen (sadly not watch) the OSU-Michigan game. A couple of weeks later when I was back in Manchester I got to watch my Gators play in the SEC Championship Game on it.

I'll have to check out this TVU player though. It sounds interesting.

Yesterdays game could indeed be watched with that TVUplayer. Theoretically. I found the game, connected to the channel, but the connection was so bad that it was more like a slideshow.
