Pulling the plug on cable/Directv

Looking for advice on how to watch WVU sports (Football and basketball) if not connected to cable or directv. I have been trying to cancel Directv for some time now, but the only thing holding me back is my love of watching WVU sports. RootTV has most of the basketball and early season football games. Fox sports 1 has the majority of big XII football games. ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, CBS, ABC, and FOX seem to be the others. Any way to live stream games through a device like Chromecast, Apple TV, etc without having to pay the high price of Directv for channels I rarely watch?

If you are willing to watch on a computer and live a bit dangerously, you can find most WVU major sports events streamed on sites like UStrem. Keep the name WV Wildlife handy. The account has been a life saver in the past.

Only problem is a commercials will pop up like every 15 minutes or so. I saw a Frosted Flakes commercial in Spanish so many times during a football season that I can easily order breakfast in Mexico now.

I use an adblocker and never see ads. Adblock plus or Ublock Origin add-ons work very well.

Ustream, firstrowsports (with admuncher installed, otherwise it's unusable), Kodi. I haven't had cable for over a year now and I haven't missed a WVU event. My recommendation is a Fire TV stick with Kodi installed along with the phoenix sports and sportsdevil add-ons. Lots of youtube videos on how to install everything. Most streams are in HD and it's free.

What you need is a firestick, install kodi, purchase a real debrid account (18 bucks for 6 months), and purchase sportsacccess account for 100 a year. Perfect setup. You're welcome.

Kodi will work fine if you use it legally, but i think the illegal streaming addons are coming to an end. I have it myself and have been reading a lot about how serious they are getting, cracking down on the illegal streaming sights. Some sights have already shutdown.

Kodi also works fine for streaming copyrighted content, you just need to go a little deeper than just installing kodi and Exodus. The free content has always been poor quality, but if you spend a few dollars extra you can have a setup that is actually much better than what you get from your cable provider.

Fair enough. I don't think they will ever completely eradicate it.

God with hope not! I'd rather have my nuts squeezed through a vice before paying full price for cable and internet both.
