Watching games through these websites is equivalent to stealing cable. But for many folks who are outside the US, this can offer some relief. Many sites have shut down or moved to another domain. [Read: Complete guide to stream college football live in 2017]

However, I am adding the following section with the updated list of websites that can stream live sports. At the time of writing this guide, the following websites appear to carry live streams of channels that telecast college football games.

Modes of streaming available through some of these free channels may be legally questionable. Therefore, VPN protection is suggested. Furthermore, be cautious where you click as these free websites typically contain inconspicuous malware ads.
