Where to watch the NFL & College Football online

NFL-BLOG

Football is back. We know you know, but with more people cutting cable, and more ways to watch NCAA D1 football and the NFL than ever before, it can be a chore figuring out just how you’ll get your gridiron fix.

Fear not! We’ve collected the main sources for watching professional and college football online. You can record each and every snap, sack and tackle with Applian recording products from these streaming services, and store them in whatever format suits your needs.

NFL GamePass

The NFL is in some ways the most liberal of all pro sports – constantly adopting new rules, technologies and ideas. So it’s no surprise the NFL has started offering replays of each and every regular season game via its GamePass subscription service.

While you can’t get live games via GamePass, you can get on-demand HD replays of all 256 regular season games which you can record with Replay Video Capture. If you’re less visual and need your live fix, GamePass offers every NFL game live via audio stream, which you can easily capture and keep with Replay Radio. All you have to do is hit the “Quick Record” button at the bottom of the screen to start capturing the audio you’re playing – when finished, just tap the button again to stop recording.

WatchESPN

ESPN covers Football, both college and pro, as vigorously as anyone. They offer football live streaming online. Check out ESPN’s filterable pro and college broadcast schedule here and use Replay Video Capture to keep the games for your own personal viewing pleasure.

To learn how to use Replay Video Capture to record and store all of your most important games this season, check out this handy video to walk you through, step-by-step:

YouTube

Complete, non-live college football games are available on YouTube on the Watch College Football channel. The selection is spotty, but boy are there some gems. Use Replay Media Catcher to download classic college football from YouTube to up your fansmanship!

With a simple copy/paste action of the YouTube video’s URL into Replay Media Catcher, you can quickly and easily download the action, or turn on Auto-Mode to instantly record what’s streaming on your screen. To learn more about how to use Replay Media, watch this video:

Have a great football season, and happy capturing!

Using Applian for Archiving Podcasts

As a format, podcasts are the black sheep, dark horse, red-headed-stepchild of the digital media space – praised, dismissed, then praised again, only to be re-dismissed as an antiquated, skeuomorphic form later on.

Here at Applian, we help you capture a lot of video-based content and do our best to tell you about the optimal product for recording media from any platform. So, without further ado, here is our essential guide to downloading podcasts with Applian products.
