You’re away from your TV, or you’re out of town but you just have to see the Louisville basketball game and it starts in 5 minutes. It’s not on TV in your area, and you don’t have a pay service on your cable or satellite that will allow you to tune it in. What do you do?
Turn to the internet of course! There are usually several websites that are broadcasting any college game you can think of, so with a few key clicks and a click or two of your mouse (or swipes of your smart phone) you can be watching the Cardinals make great shots and take control of the court.
Here are a few steps on how to watch Louisville basketball games in the next 5 minutes:
1. If you are on your computer, HAVE A VIRUS PROTECTION PROGRAM, USE CHROME AND INSTALL ADBLOCK. This cannot be stressed enough. Depending on where you’re streaming from, you could be bombarded with malware and ads as well, and it’s terribly annoying. Installing Adblock will stop these ads from popping up and ruining your enjoyment of the game, and having good virus protection will protect your computer. It may take an extra minute or two to install Adblock but it is well worth it. Go to the Google Chrome Web Store, search for Adblock and install it. You won’t be sorry.
2. Then search the following keywords in Google Chrome: Watch Louisville vs ________ online streaming free. (If you don’t know who they are playing, leave the vs ______ part out and just type the rest.) Since you will be running Adblock at this point, you will just get native search results, no ads. This is good because what you’re looking for probably won’t be in an ad.
3. First see if CBS, ABC or ESPN has the game on free to watch. They do that sometimes, and if they have the link will most likely appear on the first page. This is your best bet, and will be the best quality stream most likely. This will allow you to watch Louisville basketball in 5 minutes easily.
4. If one of the networks doesn’t have the game online, then look for websites like Stream2Watch, VIPBOX, Ustream, and ATDHE. These sites have subscribers that rebroadcast games, and are a good option. As mentioned above though, they can include a lot of annoying pop up ads and such so having Adblock on before you start is important. If you find a site like P2P4U that has a message stating you have to disable Adblock, just move on to another site. You don’t want to do that.
5. Avoid sites like YouTube, Blogger.com, and anything else that looks a little off. These just post links to other streaming sites and mostly don’t work or will take you on a fruitless search.
6. If all else fails, ESPN and Real have subscription services you can join. This may be your best bet if you’re a regular watcher, but if you’re just needing to catch one or two games it’s not as good of an option.
