    I haven't but they advertise it almost every time I try to watch a video. Do they carry college and pro football games?

    As far as I can tell, they have all of the ESPNs and SEC Network. Unless I missed something. The problem would be local channels, since it isn't in my area.

    Just buy some cheap rabbit ears to pick up the free over the air broadcasts.
    I need a new TV but if i could stream the games with YouTube TV I could just buy a large HD monitor and hook it to a computer

    Expect more and more movies to get pulled from all-in-one streaming services. Studios are looking at having their own services (see Disney).

    I just checked out YouTube TV. Only available in the cities they listed. Baton Rouge not among them. If it's streamed through the internet I don't see why it wouldn't be available everywhere.

    Free VPN would do it.

    Thinking about it, Sling might be the better option. I only want it for the sports and it's $20 a month. YouTube is $35 which doesn't cut what I'm paying for internet and cable by all that much. Not sure if Sling has the SEC Network though.
