If you haven't cut the cord and are thinking about it, now is the perfect time. If you're like many cord cutters, once you have a digital antenna and sign up to a streaming service or two, you won't even know why you stayed with cable as long as you did. If you do cut the cord, one of your best friends will be your antenna. Antennas equal free TV. Local channels such as PBS, ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox are meant to be free. An antenna will make sure you get these channels on your television.
ESPN doesn’t broadcast a huge portfolio of NFL games, but it does claim rights to the always exciting Monday Night Football. There’s a few ways you can stream ESPN, but the easiest might be WatchESPN. You can access the website or app with either your cable credentials or a subscription to one of several streaming services, like Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, or DIRECTV NOW. You can also get free partial access if your internet provider is on this list.
If you could only get one channel during the college football season, ESPN would be the safest bet. That’s because it’s the lead broadcaster for NCAA Football games as it owns the broadcast rights to around 50% of all games aired on TV. There are multiple conferences with games on ESPN’s networks, including the SEC, Big Ten, Pac-12, and much more. The channels broadcasting games include ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, SEC Network, Goal Line, ESPNU, ESPNews, Campus Insiders Network, and also ABC.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
