Sling TV is just $25 a month and gives you live TV that streams over the internet. You get over 30+ channels including ESPN for one low fee. Then, you can watch other games on FOX, CBS and NBC for free with an antenna. In fact, you can even watch most of the bowl games for free if you sign up for a 7-day trial, although you’ll probably want to keep Sling after the trial ends.
