We knew the bowl season would be interesting. What we didn’t know was that it would be this interesting.

Over the course of the weekend, we saw how Army decimated Houston in what was surely not an even match. Even if you did think so at the beginning of the game, the score line at the end said otherwise.

Then, GA Southern was able to take a tiny lead over Eastern MI in the Camellia Bowl.

That is not all the action there is though. This week already holds somemoreinteresting games to be seen.

Speaking of seeing, we know you might not be getting any of the action.

 

What the cause might be

Many people have cut the cord due to the high cost they have to pay just to have it running.  Considering the fact that many of these people keep the cord alive for the games alone, the price is not justified.

Even when the cord was running, there was no way to escapegame blackouts when the games are playing in your region.

Moving away from that, there is still the issue of content restrictions and geo-blocking to consider.

How else would you explain someone living outside the US not being able to accessthe games? It doesn’t even matter if they had a cable TV subscription running back home and they just had to travel outside the States for a while.

How to get around the problems

It looks like these issues are insurmountable, but they aren’t at all. In fact, all you need is:

  • A solution that allows you stream the games without the need for cable TV and
  • A way to always be in the US, since that is where the games are being aired.

Since everyone can’t be in the US, there is a workaround for that too – using a VPN.

These pieces of software are made in such a way that they differentiate your IP address from that of your physical location. Someone from Germany (or anywhere else in the world) could then stream the NCAA college footballcontentlike they were in the US without problems.

All they would have to do is:

  • Launch their VPN app
  • Connect to a desired server location in the US
  • Choose a suitable streaming platform and
  • Start enjoying the games at will

When game blackouts are the problem, all you have to do is use your VPN to connect to a server location where the game is being broadcasted.

Since the blackouts are usually restricted to the local market where the game is to be played, you stand a better chance of seeing it when you’re streaming from another server location.

Possible StreamingPlatforms

We made mention of streaming platforms where you can grab the games on. Some of our top picks are:

  • Sling TV: The starting plan to give you access to college football content on Sling TV is the $25/ month package. You can get started with the 7-day free trial plan and see from there if you’re comfortable with what the platform offers. You can then go on to embrace the paid package.
  • YouTube TV: As is with the free platform, this service has some of the best channels to give you unfettered access to all the college football you want to watch. Costing $40/ month, YouTube TV also allows you use theplatform free for the first 14 days. That’s more than enough time to help you make a buying decision.
  • PlayStation Vue: This one comes from the stables of Sony, and it costs the most. At $45/ month, it also offers the most – FS1 and FS2, CBS Sports, SEC Network and much more.
