Florida has a lot of icons, including The Mouse and, of course, miles and miles of sandy beaches. It also has great college football, and that includes the Florida State Seminoles. They are in good company as part of the ACC, and fans are as loyal as they come.
This season, most of the FSU games will be airing on ESPN or ABC. These include some games on ESPN2 as well as the network’s digital app WatchESPN. But these are cable networks, right? So how can you possibly access them without a cable contract?
Times, they are a’changin’. Now there are so many ways you can watch Florida State football online that it isn’t even funny. Let’s get you started.
Watch Florida State Football Online with Sling TV
The best way to watch all of the ESPN networks is with Sling TV, a product of Dish Network that allows online streaming of popular cable networks. Not only will you have access to ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPN3 on the the WatchESPN App (with your Sling TV login) you can also watch popular cable shows like AMC’s The Walking Dead. If that isn’t reason enough, we don’t know what is.

PlayStation Vue Lets You Watch FSU Football Online
With PlayStation Vue, a live streaming service from Sony, you get a number of popular pay TV channels with no contract. This will let you watch Florida State football online this season.
It’s worth pointing out, though, that Vue (review) will cost you more than Sling TV. Their basic package runs between $30-$40 a month depending on which city you live in. And if you like to watch football on the go, know that Vue blocks most mobile streaming outside of your home.
Watch FSU Football Over-the-Air
Of course, some games will be broadcast on the big network TV stations. In that case, you can still watch TV the old fashioned way, in a new fashioned format. Antennas have come a long way over the last few years and now they are small, unobtrusive, and very powerful. Need an antenna? Check out our guide to choosing the right TV antenna.
You can also pair the antenna with a new over-the-air digital DVR, such as the Tablo. Record games when you’re away or use it to get a Florida State football live stream of the games to your smart devices when you’re away from home.
