Saturday, November 19th, 2016

The 2016-17 season of NCAA college football is finally here and fans of the event can look forward to some great football action in the coming weeks. The current season began in late August and it will culminate with College Football Playoff National Championship scheduled to be held in Florida on 9th January’ 2017. This 2016-17 season is the third season to use the College Football Playoff system and in addition, plenty of new rules have been introduced this year to make the Conference as well as Playoff games more exciting.

2016-17 College Football Predictions

Alabama defeated Clemson in January to clinch the 2016 College Football Playoff National Championship so it is no surprise to see that the team is one of the top favorites to win this year’s title as well. However, a lot of experts believe that an ACC team like Clemson or Florida is going to be the champion for this season. The new rules will definitely affect the performance of all teams and it would be interesting to see who can master them to their advantage and tame their competitors.

How To Watch College Football Online?

Most fans would want to stream the college football games live on a large screen TV in their living rooms. However, it is not always possible to watch the games on TV which is why online streaming options are so popular. If you would like to stream the NCAA college football games on your mobile devices then subscribing to ESPN (http://espn.go.com/watchespn) or Sling TV (https://www.sling.com/) is your best option. Depending on your location, you can also stream regional games via CBS Sports (http://www.cbssports.com/college-football/), ABC (abc.go.com/watch-live), FOX Sports (http://www.foxsports.com/college-football), SEC Network (http://secsports.go.com/watch) and Pac 12 Network (http://pac-12.com/live).

How To Stream NCAA College Football From Outside US?

The above mentioned streaming options work great if you happen to be present within United States. However, as expats, business travelers and tourists would readily attest, these streaming services stop working once you leave the shores of the country. That’s because of the content licensing agreements agreed upon by the NCAA and its broadcasting partners. Under these terms, ESPN, Sling, CBS, ABC and Fox are permitted to show the games only to the people who are physically present within United States (enforced by checking the IP address of the user).

If you want to stream 2016-17 season of college football from abroad then you need to hide your real location and IP address from the above streaming service providers. This can be accomplished by subscribing to a VPN or SmartDNS service that are tailor made to change your location to United States. Although you can also watch NCAA football games via third party streaming services or by using proxies, they are stop gap arrangements at best and may not be able to deliver superior quality HD streaming. We recommend subscribing to any one of the following VPN/SmartDNS service to get your weekly dose of NCAA college football action:
