The best options are all listed below and you should read on to decide which are best for you.
The best part is all of the options are legal, affordable, and easy to access, so you can watch LSU football online all season long.
Sling TV Will Let Fans Watch LSU Football Online Nearly All Season
LSU football fans will have a great option for watching football online this year with Sling TV.
Sling TV is a streaming service, starting at $20 per month, which gives subscribers live access to channels like TNT, TBS, and AMC on your phone, tablet, computer, or TV with a streaming player (Sling TV review).
Sling TV also has an agreement with the ESPN family of networks to offer ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPN3 (via the WatchESPN app with your Sling login) for all of your sporting needs. ESPN’s channels will be a great resource to catch a large amount of SEC and LSU football games in the upcoming year.
If you are looking for more coverage, Sling TV offers a Sports Extra add-on package for just $5 per month.
The package includes channels which will all have tons of college football coverage like the SEC Network, ESPNU, and ESPNEWS. In addition, the SEC and ESPN have made its joint digital platform, SEC Network+, available via the WatchESPN app.
All of these channels will have live games, highlights, and pre- and post-game coverage all year long. At the price of $25 per month, you can watch almost every SEC and LSU football game online for way less than a cable bill. It’s a great package to watch LSU football online.
If you want to watch college football online all season, you should look into their current offer.
They are giving away a free Roku Streaming Stick or 50% off a Roku 3 player if you prepay for three months. It’s a great deal, considering you’ll be able to watch LSU football online on your TV almost all season.

CBS All Access Offers Live Streaming of SEC Games
For LSU games that are slated to air on CBS, you can also stream them live using CBS’ All Access streaming service.
While All Access is primarily known for its offering of CBS hit TV shows, it does also offer live streaming of its SEC football coverage in select markets.
Currently, All Access offers live streaming in over 130 cities across the country, so if you live in one of those cities (found here on the All Access website), you can stream LSU games on CBS this way. All Access is just $5.99 a month, and there’s a free one-week trial.

PlayStation Vue Offers Another Way to Watch LSU Football Online
Another way to watch LSU football online is with PlayStation Vue. Like Sling TV, Vue is a live streaming service that offers bundles of cable channels streaming to your devices with no contract required.
It’s worth noting, however, that Vue has a higher price point than Sling TV. It starts at $29.99-$39.99 a month, based on where you live. Furthermore, Vue does block most mobile streaming outside of the home, making it difficult to enjoy an LSU football live stream on the go.

Use CBS’ Multiple Viewing Options To Follow LSU Football All Season
CBS was awarded a contract to receive first pick on which SEC games it would like to broadcast all year long. Each week, the network will broadcast an SEC Game of the Week or an SEC doubleheader on Saturday. These games can easily be watched by using an antenna to tap into CBS’s over-the-air broadcast. LSU will surely be chosen to participate in some great matchups on CBS this year, which means the antenna will allow you to watch these games without a cable package. The best part about the antenna is you can watch LSU football without leaving your couch, right on your TV. Need an antenna? Check out our guide to choosing the best TV antenna for your home.
Want to record LSU’s games? You can use an over-the-air DVR to record games, pause and rewind live TV, and more. My personal favorite, the Tablo DVR, also allows you to stream live and recorded TV directly to your streaming devices anywhere you go.
Each of CBS’ SEC football broadcasts will actually be accessible online this year, via a live stream on its website.
The stream will be a great quality, featuring all 22 of CBS’s camera angles featured on its TV broadcast.
The best part is this live stream is completely free and does not require any form of authentication to view. You simply go onto CBS’s website and stream the game, while it’s airing.
Listen To LSU Football On More Than 30 Radio Stations
Coverage of LSU football games will be broadcast on over 30 affiliate radio stations in Louisiana and surrounding Southern states. The play-by-play for these broadcasts will be led by the “voice of the Tigers” Jim Hawthorne. He is entering his 334d year with LSU football and has been a stand out as one of the best play-by-play announcers in college football. Former LSU football great, Doug Moreau, will be adding the color commentary. The flagship station to listen to each LSU game this year is WDGL Eagle 98. FM right in Baton Rouge.
How to Watch College Football Online
Check out our complete conference-by-conference guide to legally watching college football without cable.
The LSU Tigers –aka the ‘Bayou Bengals’–have been playing intercollegiate football since 1893. Despite this century-plus legacy, they’ve enjoyed their greatest success in the past decade under head coaches Les Miles and Nick Saban. The LSU Tigers football team has won three national titles including the BCS Championships in 2004 and 2008.
They are the only school to win multiple championships during the BCS era. Their passionate fan base fills 102,000 seat Tiger Stadium for every home game, and many of their boosters travel to road games. The ones that don’t watch anxiously on television or digital streaming on a computer or other device.
EXCELLENT STREAMING OPTIONS FOR US BASED FANS:
Like the other member institutions in the Southeastern Conference (SEC), LSU Tigers football fans enjoy some of the best streaming coverage available. The SEC has a broadcast deal with sports programming behemoth ESPN so many of the Tigers’ games can be found on ESPN, ESPN2 or another of their family of networks. These games are also available on ESPN’s state of the art digital platform to access on the computer or a variety of mobile devices.
ESPN and the SEC are also partners in The SEC Network, a 24/7 cable/satellite channel dedicated to coverage of Southeastern Conference sports. Any game in the ‘revenue sports’ including football and basketball that isn’t shown on the ESPN platform can be found on the SEC Network. The network also leverages ESPN’s digital resources meaning that LSU football fans are covered both on television and for digital streaming.
At one point, these resources were limited to cable/satellite TV subscribers. That is no longer the case thanks to a new service called SlingTV. SlingTV offers a selection of premium cable networks via digital streaming for $20 a month. Their base package includes ESPN and ESPN 2 and for $5 more a ‘sports package’ includes the rest of the ESPN family of networks as well as the SEC Network. SlingTV is available for a wide variety of computer, smart phone and streaming device platforms.
ALTERNATE METHODS TO STREAM LSU TIGERS FOOTBALL:
Obviously, Bayou Bengals backers in the United States have it easy but what about fans in other countries? For these LSU enthusiasts, their degree of difficulty in accessing the games varies depending on where they live. ESPN offers direct digital subscriptions to their networks–including the SEC Network–for viewers in a growing number of countries. If you’re inside a country, they serve you can enjoy the same high-quality digital programming as US cable/satellite subscribers.
Outside of these countries, there are options but they’ll require more work. Finding a 24/7 feed of the SEC Network or ESPN isn’t easy but is possible. There are websites that index live network streams, or you might get lucky and find something with a simple Google search. A better bet is to find the individual LSU Tigers football games on one of the many live sports streaming websites. Some of the best are Stream2Watch, VIPBOX or P2P4U. With the high profile of the LSU team and the Southeastern Conference you should be able to find any conference game with relative ease.
