    I live in Ft Myers and trying to determine how I can watch the game tomorrow night. I know the game is on ESPNU. I dont have the Comcast TV package that has ESPNU. So, I wonder if there are other ways to get the game streamed to my computer or to my Kindle Fire? What about Justin TV?

    I guess there is also the Sports Bar scene, which I don't really care for. If I have to go this route does anyone in the SW Fl area have recommendations for a "Gator friendly" viewing experience?

    Thanks guys.

    The best way to do this is order the sports package with ESPNU, watch the game, then the next day cancel the package. "I didn't like it".

    You probably won't even be charged.

    It's on ESPN3 / WatchESPN.

    If you have a cable subscription w/ espn included, you have access to these.

    Am enjoying being a (once-again) Directv subscriber. Didn't have ESPNu or NFL network with last year's cable package. Sorry, I know this doesn't help, but satellite is superior when it comes to sports, imo.

    That's what so confusing with Comcast:I get ESPN and ESPN2, but ESPNU and ESPN3 are not in my channel lineup. Sucks!

    Call sometime later today and ask them to add the sports package with ESPNU. Trust me, I know how bad their customer service is but they will gladly add services to charge you more money. You will have the channel before you get off the phone with them. On sunday you can just call and cancel it.

    To be honest, I believe the sports package is only like 5-10 bucks extra a month. Thats probably a lot less than you would pay to go to the bar, get a few drinks and watch it there.

    The ESPN channel line up says the game is on ESPNU not ESPN3. I can get 3 on my Kindle but not U..

    ESPN3 shows everything airing on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU plus a selection of other games.

    There are some that get blacked out from time to time.

    No matter what you do, you'll almost certainly find it on firstrowsports.

    Just make sure you don't download anything even if it say you need to download something. You will see a countdown somewhere on the video and after that, a little X should show up. After you click the X the ad will go away and you'll be able to watch it.

    Keep in mind, streaming it from firstrow or even ESPN will likely have a crummy picture.

    If you go ESPN3 you will need to have a comcast login. When you click on ESPN3 it will take you to a page where you choose your service provider.....for you Comcast. Then it will have you enter your Comcast login......this presupposes that you have cable internet with Comcast. Once you do that you can use ESPN3.

    This. Espn3 is Internet, not a channel. You can watch in your computer through a web browser or on any mobile device/tablet w/ the WatchESPN app.

    If you can plug you computer into your tv or mirror a mobile device, you can still use a couch. AppleTV and roku. (I think) have the WatchESPN app, too.

    Yep, I was able to get on ESPN3 on my Kindle following your advice. The only problem is the Fl. Ky. Game isn't on 3, it's on ESPNU. Comcast won't allow me on U apparently unless I upgrade my TV package.

    I think I'll have to find a decent sports bar somewhere around Fort Myers if I want to watch the game.
