Live TV With Sling
Although it seems like the hip upstart of the streaming world, Sling TV is actually the oldest live TV streaming service. That may explain why it is so unique. DIRECTV STREAM, FuboTV, Hulu + Live TV, and YouTube TV — they all offer plans that are based on what the cable companies offer. Sling goes its own way.
Sling TV starts with low-cost base plans: Orange (ESPN, Disney) and Blue (Fox, NBC). You can then build on them with different channel packages, over 40 specific channel plans, and the best foreign-language options in the industry. Sling allows you to get the channel lineup you want rather than weighing you down with large plans will with channels you don’t care about.
You also get 50 hours of cloud DVR storage with Sling TV. If you love channel-surfing, this may not be the way to go. But if you know what you want and you don’t want to spend a lot of money, Sling TV is the obvious choice.

Can I watch the bowl games for free?
Most of the bowl games air on ESPN — and one on ESPN2. These are cable TV channels and they are not free. You need to get them through a paid streaming service.
