Watch South Carolina Football Online on Sling TV
Sling TV is a streaming service that allows users to watch popular cable channels through an internet connection and will be a great way to watch nearly all of the South Carolina football games online this year. The starting Sling TV Orange package (review here) is $20 per month, and does not require a contract. With the subscription users can access about 20 channels, which most importantly includes ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPN3 (through the WatchESPN app with your Sling credentials, you can also access ABC games this way).
On top of its basic package, Sling offers a Sports Extra Package for just $5 per month. The SEC Network, ESPNU, ESPNEWS, and other sports channels are included in the add-on package. These will be great resources for South Carolina and SEC football as a whole throughout the season. The SEC’s digital platform, SEC Network+, a joint effort with ESPN, can also be accessed through the WatchESPN app.
If you’re still unsure about Sling, you can try out their service right now for free for 7 days.
CBS All Access To Offer Some South Carolina Football Live Stream Coverage
If any South Carolina football game is being broadcast by CBS, there’s a good chance you can live stream it on CBS All Access. All Access offers live streaming of the local CBS stations in more than 80% of the markets across the US. It’s a cheap $5.99 a month, and you’ll also be able to enjoy on-demand content with your favorite CBS hit shows. Check out our CBS All Access review for full details.
PlayStation Vue Offers Option to Watch South Carolina Football Online
One other way to watch South Carolina football online this season is PlayStation Vue. Vue is a live streaming service that shares a lot in common with Sling TV, offering packages of popular channels streaming over your internet connection with no pay TV contract required. But it’s important to note that Vue is costlier than Sling TV ($29.99-$39.99 monthly, depending on your market) and has strict restrictions on mobile streaming outside of your home network.

Use CBS’s Live Stream or Network Channel to Watch the SEC Game of The Week
CBS will be a great resource for watching SEC and South Carolina football this season. Every Saturday, the network will broadcast an SEC Game of the Week or an SEC doubleheader. The game will be broadcast on CBS’s over-the-air network, which can be accessed free with an antenna. South Carolina will surely be included in some great matchups this year, and it’s likely they’ll be airing on CBS throughout the season. If you’re hoping to catch those and other SEC games on CBS and don’t have an antenna yet, use our guide for choosing the best TV antenna.
If you want to record the games on CBS so you can watch them later, an over-the-air DVR will allow you to do that and much more. The Tablo DVR that I use offers full DVR capabilities, like recording games and pausing live TV, but what really sets it apart is I can stream live television and my recordings directly to all of my paired devices anywhere I go. This is one more easy way to watch South Carolina football online this season.
On top of accessing CBS’s broadcast with your antenna, you will also be able to watch any South Carolina football games online if they are broadcast by CBS. The network announced it will be live streaming each of its SEC games for the season for free on the CBS Sports website, with no forms of authentication needed. Not only is the stream free, but it’s a high-quality option since CBS is including all 22 camera angles it features on its TV broadcasts. Regardless of your choice, antenna or streaming, CBS will be a great way to watch some great SEC and South Carolina football games.
CBS College Sports Live Will Air Live Audio Streams of Each South Carolina Game
CBS has made a huge batch of deals with colleges this year to broadcast games on its College Sports Live service. With South Carolina, CBS will be broadcasting each game through a live audio stream. Numerous other SEC teams have agreements for audio and video streams, and the service might be a good opportunity to follow certain games.
The subscription for College Sports Live begins at $9.95 per month. You should go to the website to look at its programming schedule in order to see if the service is something worth the money for you.
