Notre Dame, Georgia, and how to stream college football’s must-watch Week 4

The SEC dominates the marquee matchups on the docket for Week 4, leading with (No. 7) Notre Dame taking on (No. 3) Georgia between the hedge, in primetime action. 

Though there’s pressure for quarterback Jake Fromm and Georgia to win at home, it’s based primarily on their strong expectations for a College Football Playoff berth. Notre Dame, however, has been on the outside looking in as a legitimate national championship contender, even when it’s made the playoff. While QB Ian Book presents issues for Georgia’s secondary, recent history shows the Fighting Irish of the Brian Kelly era have failed to control the line of scrimmage, which was the case during last season’s home loss to the Bulldogs.

Here’s everything you need to know—a full slate of games, network coverage, and how to stream all the action—about Week 4 in college football, which kicks off Friday evening.

College football 2019 schedule: live stream

The following services, save for ESPN+, offer a one-week free trial and all carry ESPN and Fox Sports 1. The full schedule of games is below.

1) Sling TV

Sling TV

Sling TV provides two base channel package options, each priced at $25 per month. Sling Orange includes three ESPN channels, while Sling Blue includes sports channels like NFL Network, FS1 and FS2, NBCSN, and local channels. If you’re Team “Why Not Both,” Sling Orange + Blue combines the two for just $40 per month. Sports Extra: Sling Blue ($10 per month) also includes NFL RedZone.

Spanish-speaking viewers have quite a few options. For bilingual families, you might consider the Español: Best of Spanish TV package for either Sling Orange or Sling Blue for 24/7 specialty channel LaLiga TV and beIN SPORTS Connect: Channels 4-9, which features matches from LaLiga, Ligue 1, and Copa del Rey, among others. Both packages cost $5 per month after your free trial. Sling TV Latino is another Spanish-language package for $10 per month, including NBC Universo, History en Español, and—of import to soccer fans—four beIN SPORTS channels. (And choosing Sling TV Latino + Sling Orange for $30 per month gives you access to ESPN Deportes.) For more information, check out our guide to Sling TV channels and our Sling TV review.

For $10 extra per month, you can get NFL RedZone via the Sling Blue Sports Extra package.

How to use AirTV with Sling

AirTV solves one of the Sling’s biggest problems: The inability to receive all of your local channels. By purchasing a basic AirTV for $79.99 or the AirTV Player for $119.99, you can merge those local channels into your Sling TV, (or on your mobile device if you have the basic AirTV). As the Daily Dot wrote in its AirTV review, “it’s practically magic.”

The basic AirTV is a dual-tuner streaming device, while the AirTV Player is basically an upgraded Chromecast that has Netflix preinstalled. You’ll still need to own an HD antenna because even though AirTV gets you access to your local channels, it doesn’t actually physically show them to you.

But AirTV—which has no monthly fee—serves to strengthen one of Sling’s biggest weaknesses compared to other live streaming services like Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV, and PlayStation Vue. All those services have plenty of local channels.

ESPN+ is a subscription service that extends ESPN’s existing website and app, and it’s essential for soccer fans, in particular, carrying all MLS matches not on ESPN or FS1, as well as Serie A+, USL, Copa America, and FA Cup matches. It encompasses other sporting events as well, including 20 exclusive UFC Fight Night events per year, 180 NHL games, at least one MLB game a day for every day of the season, and a cornucopia of college sports.

 

ESPN+ also features the network’s sports talk programming, and it features original series starting with the entire 30 for 30 catalog ESPN made its name on. It also unlocks more content and fewer ads on the ESPN site.

4) PlayStation Vue
