Florida State football fans may have some challenges watching Saturday’s game at Virginia but there remain a number of options so that you don’t miss out.
The FSU-Virginia game will kick off at 7:30 p.m., exclusively on the ACC Network. Even without carrier deals with Comcast and some smaller providers, the network is in more than 50 million households less than one month after launch.
For FSU fans who are on Comcast, CenturyLink or a provider that doesn’t have a deal with the ACC Network, there are two good options: meet up at a friend’s house to watch the game or go to a local Seminole Club’s watch party.
In Tallahassee, where the major cable provider is Comcast, the local club will meet at 51 on Madison in CollegeTown. There are also watch parties in Orlando, Jacksonville, Fort Lauderdale, St. Petersburg, Pompano Beach, Pensacola, Destin, Sarasota and Bradenton. For more on the Orlando event on Church Street, click here. For more on the Jacksonville event at Graffiti Junction, click here. In Pensacola, the Blue Wahoos will host a watch party in the stadium with the game viewing on the outfield video board.
A complete list of parties in Florida and around the nation can be found here. And if they aren’t listed, contact your local club or check their Facebook page.
Beyond meeting up with friends or watching at a club, the option is still there for you to sign up for a streaming service like Hulu Live, PlayStationVue, YouTube TV or Sling. Many of the streaming services offer free trials and you can be set up to watch the Seminoles in minutes on your computer, tablet or wifi-enabled TV.
The ACC Network is also available on Charter-Spectrum and Cox as well as DirecTV and Dish.
