How to Watch the College Baseball World Series Without a Cable Subscription
Starting on June 1, the NCAA will kick off the 2018 College World Series featuring the country’s 64 best baseball programs. If you’re planning on watching the exciting games throughout the month of June, let us tell you how you can see it all without a cable subscription.
Because there are so many teams and so many games each day, following all the coverage without cable won’t be as easy as it is with other major sporting events. The ESPN family of networks is hosting the entire tournament, but this includes more obscure channels like SEC Network and ESPN U.
Luckily, Sling TV offers access to all the networks you’ll need. It simply requires you to select the following package options. You’ll need to sign up for the $20 “Sling Orange” option which includes ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPN3, as well as adding the $5 Sports Extra package to get SEC Network and ESPN U.
Available in most cities throughout the country, YouTube TV is a lot like Sling TV, just with a few differences. The YouTube TV packages start at $40/month for base services without premium add-ons like Showtime or HBO. You can get a free, seven-day trial that you can cancel before your credit card is charged, but obviously this won’t last throughout the entire NCAA Tournament. YouTube TV offers access to all the ESPN networks you need, meaning that you’ll never miss a minute of the coverage.
Hulu with Live TV
Similar to YouTube TV, Hulu offers live streaming television. The service offers access to every channel you’ll need, which means it’s another perfect option for watching all 64 teams battle for the National Championship. Hulu with Live TV costs $39.99 per month for the base package, and just like with the other services, you can get free access for up to a week as long as you’ve never signed up for the live TV package before.
We hope this helped you figure your best option for watching this year’s college World Series. As always, keep your eye on SeatGeek for all your sporting event news and information.
