The Florida Gators have been playing intercollegiate football since the early 1900’s and since then have become one of the most dominant programs in the sport. The Gators football team has a reputation for a tough home field (aka ‘The Swamp’) and a long line of superstar coaches, most notably current South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier and current Ohio State coach Urban Meyer.

The Gators have won eight SEC championships and three national titles–all three of the national titles came within the last twenty years (1996, 2006, 2008). The Gators have proven to be a force in the SEC beating teams like LSU, Auburn and Texas A&M. Playing in the college football hotbed of Florida, the Gators have two serious in-state rivals–the University of Miami Hurricanes and the Florida State Seminoles.


Fans that are looking for Florida Gators football game streams have it easy–at least in the United States. The Gators are members of the SEC, which has a broadcast relationship with ESPN. With ESPN televising the bulk of the Gators’ schedule, live streams are easy to find thanks to the ‘Worldwide Leader’s’ industry standard digital platform. Additional coverage of Florida Gators football is available online thanks to the SEC Network.

The SEC Network is a 24/7 TV network devoted to the conference’s sports teams. It is a partnership between ESPN and the Southeastern Conference that reaches over 75 million homes. Access to the ESPN and SEC Network digital programming is free for all cable/satellite subscribers and delivers the action to your computer, smartphone, tablet and other WiFi connected devices.

Until recently, Florida Gators fans in the US that didn’t have a cable/satellite subscription were out of luck. That’s no longer the case, thanks to a new venture called SlingTV. SlingTV provides streaming access to a variety of top premium cable networks–including ESPN. The basic service costs $20 per month and an additional $5 per month adds a premium sports package that includes The SEC Network, ESPN News, ESPNU and others. SlingTV customers have the same streaming options as cable subscribers–in fact, SlingTV may offer support for more types of viewing than most cable services.


Foreign fans also have options they didn’t have in the past for enjoying live Florida Gators football online. ESPN is now offering digital-only subscriptions to a growing number of foreign countries. These ‘digital only’ packages offer the whole range of ESPN owned networks including the SEC Network. Assuming you live in a country they cover, you’ll get the same state of the art digital programming and live streaming as US based fans.

If none of the above options work for you, there’s always one of the many websites that index live sports streams. The quality of these websites and the streams they offer can vary widely, but some of the best are Wiziwig, VIPSPORTSBOX, and Stream2Watch.ME. There are others, but you need to be careful since some of these sites are simply ‘bait’ for distributing malware and obnoxious advertising. A Google search is a good way to find additional websites as well as get information to separate the good ones from the bad.
