I am just not a fan of them and haven't been for years now.
Last year I stared watching the game on mute and syncing the broadcast with Mick on the tunenin app. Much more enjoyable
You can go to the games.
You can get streaming services but will be through a Disney owned company.
You can wait several days when a condensed version of the game comes to YouTube.
But ESPN provides a tremendous amount of money, public relations, and support to UF and has a network specific to our conference. I know it’s the popular thing to say how much ESPN sucks but they help UF. There is no other legitimate option.
Other than in-person, any source you watch it from live (cable, satellite, legal stream, illegal stream) is going to be an ESPN broadcast. I guess with an illegal stream ESPN won't be getting the subscriber fee though so if the goal is to stick it to them, that's probably the route to take.
I may have to watch espn out of necessity, but I don't have to like it.
You could physically attend the game in person...
Illegal stream is...illegal.
It’s like saying you are going to hijack your neighbors cable to “stick it to the cable company”. Nah, that just means you are a common criminal stealing cable service.
If you have an amazon echo device, you can install the WRUF/AM-850 app and use it to listen to the games with good sound without having to pull out a radio. That's what I do to have the radio broadcast going in the entire house during the game.
ESPN is trash. I agree with the above recommendations of syncing the games with the radio broadcast. Also you will get more knowledgeable insight from the radio broadcast.
I would love to be at the game but I currently live in California. I will just mute it and sync Mick.
Yeah, that's why I called it illegal.
No way around ESPN if you want to watch. You could go to a bar and watch, but that has it's own risk/reward these days.
Like others have said, sync with Mick if you can. There are a few ESPN announcers that are good, but even those aren't as fun as Mick.
Is there still a delay on the radio broadcast?
Would you mind explaining how you get the audio to sync with the video on the TV?
ESPN died for me when some genius decided it would be a good idea to interject politics into a sports platform.
The echo broadcasts seem to the same as the radio, no delay. Of course, the radio/echo is always ahead of the game by 2-3 seconds as the TV broadcast has a delay over the radio.
Leaving the amazon echo AM850 app link here for anyone who wants it (remove the space)
Everyone's delay/lack of is different. I have learned to pause and play the TuneIn app and the TV until it lines up perfect. It is pretty easy.
Use the TuneIn app and pause the radio for 3 seconds.
We are stuck with SEC Network and ESPN for as long as they are willing to pay $45 million per school a year for TV rights.
