Added espn+, but we can’t access the bowl games without a provider?

Help please! We just added espn+ monthly for 9.99

We are trying to watch the bowl games but it’s asking for a provider? We have Spectrum for Wi-Fi but we do not have cable. What do we do now?

ESPN+ only gives you ESPN+ content lf you want to watch the bowl games you need to have a TV provider.

ESPN+ is accessed thru the ESPN channel app.   It gives you access to the items marked with ESPN+ in the upper left corner of the program tile.

To watch the "regular" ESPN cable offerings that aren't marked as ESPN+, you need to be logged in with tv provider credentials.

@751- Additional reply:

There are streaming services you can subscribe to that will give you access to 'regular' (non-plus) ESPN.  These can be less costly than a full-blown cable/satellite subscription.

Check out these options:

Fubu, Hulu with Live TV, Directv Stream, Sling TV, YouTubeTV, Vidgo.
