Celebration Bowl: How to watch online for free

1) Hulu with Live TV

Hulu with Live TV
  • Cost: $44.95 per month
  • Hulu devices: Roku, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire Stick and Fire TV, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Nintendo Switch, and iOS and Android devices
  • Local channels: ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, the CW (check your local availability here 

Hulu with Live TV is a one-stop shop for streaming entertainment. Every subscription comes with free access to Hulu’s deep catalog of on-demand TV shows, 2018 new releases, funny movies, and Hulu original series. That’s in addition to 50-plus channels that include everything you need to stream college bowl games: ESPN and ESPN 2, FS1 and FS2, ABC, Fox, and CBS Sports Network, not to mention SEC Network and Big Ten Network. (Here’s a complete guide to Hulu Live TV channels.)


2) FuboTV

  • Devices: Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Android TV, iOS and Android devices
  • Local channels: ABC, Fox, NBC, CBS (check local availability here)

FuboTV is arguably the best streaming service for sports fans, especially if you’re interested in international soccer. But there’s one glaring issue with the service: It doesn’t carry anything from ESPN. That’s a deal breaker for most college bowl games, but it does carry all of the major broadcast networks, FS1 and FS2, Big Ten Network, and plenty more. (Here’s the complete FuboTV channels list.)


3) PlayStation Vue

  • Devices: PlayStation 3 and 4, Roku, Amazon Fire, Google Chromecast, Kodi, iOS and Android devices
  • Local channels: NBC, Fox, ABC, CBS (enter your ZIP code here to check your availability)

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need a PlayStation to use PlayStation Vue. The streaming service works with Roku, Amazon Fire, Chromecast, and even Kodi. It’s a tad more expensive than other options, but it offers four different tiers of channels that provide plenty of variety. (Here are all of PlayStation Vue channels.)


4) YouTube TV

YouTube TV

YouTube TV offers a comprehensive streaming package for sports fans that’s close to what you’ll find on Hulu with Live TV. One notable difference in YouTube’s favor is the addition of specialty channels like NBA TV and MLB Network. But it’s unlimited cloud DVR and the ability to split each account with six other people that makes YouTube TV worth considering. (You can find the full list of YouTube TV channels here.)


Celebration Bowl 2018: Why it matters

North Carolina AT&T (9-2), which has won the Celebration Bowl in two of the past three seasons, has showcased a stout defense this year, holding three of its opponents to less than a touchdown. But Alcorn State (9-3) has scored at least 30 points six times this year, including a 78-0 drubbing of LA College. It’ll be the typical tough offense vs. tough defense matchup, and it should be a blast to watch.
