Although MLB.TV, NBA League Pass, NHL GameCenter Live, and NFL Sunday Ticket (depending on where you live) offer live streaming packages without a cable or satellite subscription, NCAA college football does not have a similar deal. Bob Iger, the chairman of ESPN parent company Disney, commented recently that ESPN would likely offer a standalone streaming product but probably not in the next five years.
