    If you only had access to high speed internet for a weekend how would you watch the game? Friend told me Hulu is a good option with a Roku box or Apple TV. Please advise. Trying to find the easiest way. Game is on cbs as we know.

    CBS streams their games for free I think.

    If you have a TV, for a CBS game, I would get an antenna. It's HD and there's no stream delay.

    You have to live in the over-the-air broadcast footprint of a CBS affiliate. In which case you wouldn’t need to stream—just have an antenna

    Antenna for commercial TV. I simply use Sling with SEC network and all of the ESPN's. I use a VPN and watch every game I want in Mexico.

    I have an antenna but the CBS satellite is too far away so I don't get it. If you want to watch it on Roku or Fire Stick then you have to subscribe to CBS All Access

    Can I check based off the address if it is too far away so I know if rabbit ears are worth bringing?

    This is what I use. For just a weekend I would find something that has a free trial so that you can cancel it after.

    Reddit cfbstreams is how I watch from Japan. HD broadcasts and most are easy to get without a ton of pop ups.

    Hulu and Sling offer free trials. Just use one and cancel after the game.

    I cut the cord for Sling years ago and moved to Hulu last year. Never going back to the dinosaurs at cable or satellite.

    As mentioned above, Sling usually don't have the networks. Vue would work. And Youtube TV.

    Yes that's right. If you want a CBS game then you have to look through the other channels. Usually some weird sports channel.
