How to watch college football without cable TV


One of America’s favorite sports is almost back as college football kicks off its season next week. In the past, it was very difficult for college football fans to ditch cable and still watch the games, but now it is easier than ever.

Since Sling TV hit the market in January 2015, the world of cord-cutting has significantly changed. More and more streaming services are jumping on board, which makes cord-cutting less stressful than before.

Here is our guide to watching college football without the long contracts, or high price, of cable TV.

Ting Unboxing and a giveaway: Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

The Galaxy S7 Edge is the pinnacle of the Android universe. It truly has it all – an exceptional design, beefy internal specs and top-notch features.

Beautifully built with rounded glass and an aluminum frame, it’s a step up from the S6 and the smoothest smartphone we’ve ever held. The S7 Edge’s compact design makes the Quad HD 5.5-inch display seem much smaller than you’d expect. It’s a phablet, but it doesn’t really feel like it.

With 4 GB of RAM, the latest Snapdragon processor and an Adreno 430 GPU, you get prime performance, no matter how heavy the task. You won’t have to worry about a mid-day recharge either, the Edge’s hefty 3600 mAh battery lasts much longer than you might expect.

It’s also water-resistant in fresh water for 30 minutes up to 1.5 meters, with no need to close your charging port or do any sort of prep beforehand. You can browse Facebook in the shower, take selfies underwater and even put it through a washer (we don’t recommend the last one).

Take a closer look at the Galaxy S7 Edge in our unboxing below and through the Ting Shop listing (CDMA only).

Ting is also giving away a brand new Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge to a lucky commenter on YouTube. Entry details are listed below.

*Congrats to the lucky winner, Tom W.
