The 2016 season is here, and Kentucky is looking to show they are more than just a dominant basketball powerhouse in the SEC and make some damage on the gridiron. Thankfully, there are plenty of great ways to watch Kentucky football online without cable.
Kentucky fans are surely hoping for an exciting season, and whether you are a cable cutter or just live outside the region, you’ll want to watch all of the Kentucky games online. Luckily, there are a bunch of legal options available to you to watch a Kentucky football live stream online.
Subscribe to Sling TV to Watch Kentucky Football Online
The whole year, ESPN’s family of networks will be airing a wide array of SEC football, and Kentucky will certainly have some serious air time on its channels. Sling TV offers a great solution for cable cutters to still watch ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPN3 (login with Sling TV credentials on the WatchESPN app). The streaming service, backed by Dish Network, was launched earlier this year and is $20 per month with no contract. It offers over 20 channels deliver over your internet connection and watchable on your TV (w/ a streaming player), tablet, phone, or computer. Read a review of Sling TV here.
On top of the basic subscription, Sling has now introduced new add-on packages for specific purposes. There is a Sports Extra package, for an additional $5 per month, which brings access to ESPNU, ESPNEWS, and the SEC Network. With this add-on you can watch nearly all of the SEC and Kentucky football games online for $25 per month. The package also introduces access to SEC Network+ via the WatchESPN app. It is the SEC’s digital platform and will offer live access to games and tons of highlights and analysis. It’s a great resource to watch Kentucky football online during the season.
If you’re thinking you just want to try the live streaming service, you can choose Sling TV’s 7-day free trial to find out how the service works for you.
Watch Kentucky Football Online on PlayStation Vue
If you’re looking for another Kentucky football live stream option, PlayStation Vue may be worth a look. Like Sling TV, Vue offers an alternative to cable TV, delivering popular channels (including the ESPN family of networks) streaming to your devices with no contract required.
There are some differences you should be aware of though between the services. Vue starts at a higher price point than Sling TV ($29.99-$39.99, depending on where you live) and has some mobile streaming restrictions that block you from watching outside of your home.

Watch CBS’s Over-the-Air Network or Live Stream for the SEC Game of the Week
CBS will be a leading option to follow Kentucky Wildcat football this year through its over-the-air network. Each week of this season, CBS will broadcast either a Saturday doubleheader or its SEC Game of the Week. During the year, Kentucky will likely be slated for some of these games on CBS. It will also be a great way to track the SEC competition each week. All you need is an antenna to watch the games on CBS for free. Check out my guide to choosing the best TV antenna for more info on getting setup.
With an over-the-air DVR, you can also record the games on your TV, so you never miss a moment. I personally use the Tablo DVR because it offers all the great DVR features you expect, plus it lets you stream your recordings and live TV from your antenna to any of your paired devices no matter where you go.
Each of CBS’s SEC football broadcasts will not only be displayed on its network channel, but will also be distributed as a live stream. The stream can be found on its website for free, without any subscription or authentication needed. It will be a great option to catch not just Kentucky football, but SEC football as a whole throughout the season. One of the best aspects is CBS will be including all 22 camera angles available on its network broadcast during the live stream. So, it will be a legitimate, high-quality stream for each of the SEC games.
Listen to Kentucky Football Games On Over 70 Radio Stations Or Online
Over 70 radio stations from Kentucky down to Florida will be broadcasting the play-by-play action of Kentucky football. The game coverage will begin 90 minutes before kickoff on most stations and will also include great add ins like pre-game coach interviews.
