College football live streaming websites

Watching games through these websites is equivalent to stealing cable. But for many folks who are outside the US, this can offer some relief. Many sites have shut down or moved to another domain. [Read: Complete guide to stream college football live in 2017]

However, I am adding the following section with the updated list of websites that can stream live sports. At the time of writing this guide, the following websites appear to carry live streams of channels that telecast college football games.

Modes of streaming available through some of these free channels may be legally questionable. Therefore, VPN protection is suggested. Furthermore, be cautious where you click as these free websites typically contain inconspicuous malware ads.

While I do not recommend this, some of my readers have reported that they were able to use WatchESPN.com, with a friend’s subscription.

1. ifirstrowus.euifirstrowus - Watch Sports Online for Free

This site has been shut down several times but it keeps coming back, now as ifirstrowus.eu. It is easy enough to find what you are looking for and is one of the best ways to watch college football online.

There are multiple links to watch American football games live online, some of them may be dead. If a link is live just wait until the countdown is done and click on the close button to get rid of the overlaid ad. Aside from American football, you’ll find football (or soccer for those in the States), basketball, hockey, rugby, and tennis. [Read: What Plex Client Hardware is Right for You?]

On stream-hd.net, you’ll find an aesthetic that mimics ESPN. The red and black color combination feels like a sporty website, and there’s decent HD quality plus excellent sorting options.

Not working

Unfortunately, a few sites went offline. But in their heyday, these were go-tos for anyone wishing to watch college football online for free.

1. wiziwig.tv

While wiziwig.tv is no more, its been replaced by the aforementioned streamhub.hk which is an awesome alternative.

2. liveball.tv

Similarly, liveball.tv is no more. However, the streaming site redirects to the working livestreams.to. Therefore, it’s semi-functioning insofar as you do get to a streaming site, albeit a different one.

3. vipbox.sz

Although vipbox.sz is no more, it redirects to vipbox.bz which is a top free streaming sports website.

Watch college football online 2017

Once again note that nothing comes close to watching sports through subscription. But if you have an emergency moment the above list of college football streaming sites are worth checking out. While these are the top choices for watching NCAA football online, there are plenty of other options. Streaming services, both free and paid, as well as Kodi addons offer excellent means to stream college football online.
