The most important channels for Gator football fans
The most important channels for watching Florida Gators football in 2023 will be CBS, ESPN, FOX, and SEC Network.
With the announcement of a new SEC TV contract for 2024, there is likely to be some confusion among SEC fans this season as to how they can watch their teams. The thing to remember is that the 2022 and 2023 seasons will be played under the old contract, which means that CBS still has the rights to the SEC Game of the Week, night games, and the SEC Championship game. SEC football games that don’t have championship implications will be broadcast on the SEC Network or ESPN2. The “big games” will be broadcast on CBS or ESPN, and CBS has the first choice each week for its featured SEC Game of the Week.
In the easy to use table below, we have listed the most important channels for Florida Gator football fans and which live TV streaming providers carry each channel, plus the latest free trials.

Depending on where in the southeast you live, these channels will have the TV rights to most of the regular season action for pro teams like the Magic, Braves, Rays, Heat, Marlins, Panthers, and more.

Watching the Florida Gators FAQ
Several live TV streaming providers live stream ESPN. You can login to the Watch ESPN app with your cable or streaming provider, or watch directly from the following apps: Sling TV Orange, DIRECTV STREAM, Hulu + Live TV, fuboTV, YouTube TV.
In 2023, the TV rights for Florida Gators football are held by ABC/ESPN and CBS. When the Gators play a non-conference opponent, the network coverage may be determined by that team’s TV contract. For example, when Florida plays a PAC-12 school, FOX may have the rights to the game. Since the ACC also has a TV contract with ESPN, the annual Florida State rivalry airs on ABC or ESPN.
