How to stream Virginia vs. Notre Dame and college football’s other must-see Week 5 games

Can the Fighting Irish rebound at home, against a game Virginia squad? Will Washington take control of the Pac 12?

The CFB field is wide open with matchups across the Week 5 docket, with some low-key critical games including No. 18 Virginia traveling to No. 10 Notre Dame, and No. 21 USC heading up to Seattle to face No. 17 Washington for Pac-12 supremacy.

Former Georgia QB Jacob Eason looked like a future first-round pick last Saturday as he led the Huskies to a dominating win at BYU in Provo. True freshman and USC starting QB Kedon Slovis remains in concussion protocol and likely won’t be available for action on Saturday, after taking a brutal hit from Leki Fotu on the second play from scrimmage in the USC-Utah game last Friday night. The Trojans would go on to beat the then-10th-ranked Utes behind the play of third-string QB Matt Fink.

Virginia has the look of a nine or 10-win second-place finisher in the ACC (behind Clemson, obviously). The Fighting Irish, though, will look to rebound strong at home after a close away loss to Georgia. Even in what was ultimately a losing effort, Notre Dame is showing they can play with the big boys, though depth against the very top teams isn’t quite there. Ian Book and company also have an impetus to crush the Cavaliers if they can, to increase their playoff chances.

Here’s everything you need to know—a full slate of games, network coverage, and how to stream all the action—about Week 5 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 FS1. 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.


2) Hulu with Live TV

Hulu with Live TV

Hulu with Live TV includes sports programming among its offerings, including ESPN and FS1, and as a subscriber to the service, you’ll get free access to Hulu’s sizable on-demand library. (Check out the full list of Hulu Live TV channels.)


3) ESPN+

  • Cost: $4.99 per month or $49.99 for 12 months
  • Devices: Chromecast, Amazon Fire Stick and Fire TV, Apple TV, Android TV, Roku players and TV, Oculus Go, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Samsung smart TVs, and iOS and Android devices

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

PlayStation Vue is a fantastic option for fans who already own a PlayStation console, but this streaming platform is available on a variety of devices. ESPN and FS1 are part of the Core package of channels, and the options increase at the Elite and Ultra levels.


5) YouTube TV
