What can We Watch Next?

Gators

vs FSU 'Noles

Saturday 24-Nov-18 17:00

First quick apology for a time mistake for last week's game. Truly sorry for any problems that may have caused, try not to make that mistake again [once in 9 years is pretty good].

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! Time to fill up on some turkey, or as most folks call them...the clowns up north. Some out there might know them as the 'Noles.

Now if you have kept a close eye on things you may notice our record- it currently sits at 8-3. This is a big deal for many reasons when we win this weekend:
1) We'll go 9-3! Think about that for a moment- after how this team played for the last few years and how they played against Kentucky- who would have expected such a good season.

2) The Gators will likely end up in the top 12 by the end of Championship week. Meaning when the bowls select teams, UF will be guaranteed a big bowl- the current thought is UF vs UCF in the Peach Bowl [or somehow the Fiesta bowl, not sure about that one due to geography, but some folks think so]. Not sure how likely that will be, but if it happens it will be a very interesting match-up.

3) The Seminoles will go 5-7 and miss a bowl game for the first time in 37 years! Ending the longest ever continuous bowl streak. And it will be thanks to their hated rival- UF! So we can enjoy this win even more.

Have we encouraged you enough to come out and watch this game yet???

If so please come on out! There's always lots of good food and good Gators to cheer with. Come on out to our new favourite place Fitzrovia Belle, we'll be the ones in orange and blue!

How to Watch

(Click on the links to visit the official websites)

This will be changing again this year, but potentially for the better-- so your legal** choices are:

1. ESPN Player This is a high quality online streaming service. This will be your main source for LIVE coverage for much of the football and/or men's basketball season- and for all those 12am/1am games- you can watch the whole game when you feel like within a few hours after the game finishes.

Because ESPN and the SEC made a major TV deal you should now be able to find every SEC game that is not shown on CBS in the States. They have added a live feed of the SEC Network so you can watch all the programming.

ESPN Player is a subscription service, which you can pay for monthly (£19.99) or yearly price (£109.99). The other benefit of ESPN Player is that you can access a bunch of other College sports too like volleyball, soccer, baseball, & lacrosse. College Game Day will be shown live and you'll be able to watch later too. All the games the ESPN Networks have access to in the US (ESPNU, ESPN, ESPN2, and ABC- and the SEC network games and programs) you will have access to via this service. This includes almost all the bowl games [only a few are owned by Fox Sports].

2. ESPN (BT Sport) -- Week to week it will vary if College Game Day is shown and what games will be shown. Try this to see what could be on.

3. Gator Vision Online This is UF's OFFICIAL online live streaming network. A LOT has changed with this because of the SEC Network. I have no idea if you'll be able to watch anything but post-game events. It seems they do audio broadcasts of many things. Feel free to explore.


 

**Sadly there is no way to stream all college games officially/legally. But if you don't have family with a Slingbox back in the US, you may want to try getting a VPN subscription. VPN allows your to surf the internet from where ever you are, but appear like you are in a certain region of the world. This allows you to watch things in the US. We reccommend NordVPN for ease of use, though any should work fine. One thing to note- if you use a VPN, you can't use the ESPN Player as it needs you to not be in the US to use it.
As for other free options you can check out google and see what you can find around the internet. There are places that feel like they can give you a FIRST ROW seat to viewing some of the games. Note the proper sites to use will NEVER ask you to download software to view these games. Any site that does is trying to install malware or something as bad. DON'T DO IT! And if you find something remember these particular sites don't charge, they make money off of annoying ads.
