One thing's for sure: either the Wildcats' or the Bulldogs' dreams of an undefeated season will end this weekend. You don't want to miss it. Here's everything you need to know to watch the game live at home — with or without cable.
Kickoff Time & Network

Cable subscribers can tune into the game by flipping the channel to ESPN network or logging into the ESPN app and entering a provider login. No cable? No problem; you'll need a subscription to a live TV streaming service. Fortunately, most of these cable alternatives offer access to ESPN, so you can catch the action live on TV or on the app.
Best Streaming Services for Georgia vs. Kentucky Football Game
Watching live college football games in the 2023 season is like the wild west. Dozens of networks broadcast the games, which means your best bet for catching the most action is through a live TV streaming service. The Georgia Bulldogs vs. Kentucky Wildcats football matchup airs live on ESPN. Frustratingly,?ESPN+ doesn't simulcast every live game from ESPN networks, so you'll need a cable alternative with access to ESPN instead. Here are our top picks to help you with your selection.
Best overall: YouTube TV
If you've ever considered signing up for YouTube TV, now is the best time to do so. The streamer is currently offering a three-week free trial to test the waters, then an introductory price of $52.99/month for three months instead of the usual $72.99/month. That's a savings of $60. Note that the deal is only available to new subscribers and that once the trial is up, you'll either have to cancel or pay the full rate of $72.99/month. With a YouTube TV subscription, you'll be able to watch the Kentucky vs. Georgia matchup on ESPN, plus plenty of other games on networks like ABC, CBS, NBC, SEC Network, Big Ten Network, the CW, and more. You'll also get unlimited DVR space, three simultaneous streams, and six household accounts — just a few of the reasons its our favorite live TV streaming service.
Runner-up live TV streaming service: FuboTV
FuboTV offers a massive lineup of channels — even more than YouTube TV. Its particular focus is live sports, making it a great option for those into more than just college football. Its one real drawback is its higher price, which is why it's not our top pick. You can watch the Kentucky vs. Georgia game on ESPN during your seven-day free trial. After your trial is up, you can either cancel with no strings attached or pay the $74.99/month fee to stick around.
Most affordable live TV streaming service: Sling TV (Orange package)
There's a reason Sling is so popular among people ditching cable. It offers a unique approach to streaming live TV by allowing you to pick and choose your channel lineup based on your preferences. That's also why it's the most affordable option on the list. To watch the Georgia vs. Kentucky game on ESPN, you'll need the Orange package, which usually retails for $40/month. However, Sling is offering an introductory rate of just $20/month for your first month for a limited time. The price will jump back up after your first month of service, at which time you can either choose to keep your subscription as is, cancel with no strings, or tweak your channel lineup.
Best live TV streaming deal: Hulu + Live TV
Hulu + Live TV is like a slightly slimmed down version of YouTube TV. It offers a pretty impressive lineup — which includes ESPN networks to watch the Georgia Bulldogs take on the Kentucky Wildcats — plus access to the full streaming libraries of Hulu, ESPN+, and Disney+. Through Oct. 11, you can score three months of Hulu + Live TV for just $49.99/month instead of $69.99/month, saving you $60 overall. After your first three months, it won't just jump back to $69.99/month. Instead, because of an impending price hike, it'll jump up to $76.99/month. And if you don't want to be charged full price, ne?sure to cancel ahead of time.
