Gators football started and 1906 and joined the SEC in 1933. Spurrier and Meyer combined to bring the vaunted program multiple national titles and SEC Championship wins. Whether you're looking to watch the Gators play on TV in 'The Swamp' or to watch any of their away games, they're success and popularity ensures you'll get to watch most every game on live TV or online, with a combo of options.
CBS, ESPN and SEC Network have rights to air all Florida home games. And for those home games that don't make it on TV, they will most likely live stream on SEC+. Gators away games can air on any number of networks, depending on the opponent - CBS, ESPN but also NBC or FOX owned stations.
Watch Gators Home Games
CBS Sports and ESPN have to first rights to air or stream all SEC football home games. This includes the Florida Gators. CBS airs a weekly SEC home game of their choice, and given that Florida is high profile, at least a few Gators games air on CBS. ESPN then airs the rest of the SEC games each week, throughout their many networks - Florida's popularity usually lands their home games on one of ESPN's main channels or the ESPN-owned SEC Network.
Florida Gators on CBS
CBS airs nationally but broadcasts locally through affiliate stations; you can access this broadcast over-the-air for free with a digital antenna hooked up to your digital TV, provided you live close enough to get the signal.
Otherwise CBS bundles with other local channels in most every basic cable package or higher. Or if you would rather just get access to CBS without any other channels, sign up for CBS All Access for $5.99/month - the service usually comes with a 7-14 trial period.
You can live stream CBS games using the CBS Sports app on your mobile device, compatible streaming box, or online. Authentication required.

TV Providers that carry all Florida Gators Football game TV Channels for 2020 (ESPN, CBS & SECN)
Watch Florida Away Games
CBS and ESPN rights only apply to home games. For away games, a Gators game can air on any network that airs college football - ESPN stations, CBS Sports channels, Fox Sports networks or NBC networks. All depends on their opponent's TV deals. Fox Sports in particular can be tricky as they have many regional networks, all broken down here.
Gators Games on FOX
Fox Sports has about two dozen channels they could air a college football game on. Which they choose depends on the conference(s) featured, and if the match-up is considered high profile.
Major match-ups typically air nationally on your local FOX channel, which you can get for free with a digital antenna (an over-the-air receiver). Or big games can air on Fox Sports 1 (FS1) or Fox Sports 2 (FS2) if they wish to air nationally on cable.
If Florida plays an mid-market opponent, or the game gets bumped down in priority due to other games with more playoff implications on the schedule for example, FOX could air that game on one of its many regional sports networks - Fox College Sports Atlantic, Pacific and Central or 19 of their Fox RSNs (Regional Sports Networks).
All regional channels require a cable plan that includes regional sports. And if you want to watch out-of-market (you're usually restricted to regional channels within your TV market), you'll need the most expensive sports package from either a traditional cable or satellite TV provider; they include all Fox Sports regional channels, regardless of location.
Live stream games on any FOX network via the Fox Sports website or mobile app. The app is available on Apple and Android devices, Apple TV, XBox, Roku, androidTV, fireTV and Chromecast.
Florida Games on NBC
NBC primarily focuses on Notre Dame games, so if the Gators play the Irish in an away game, look no further than NBC.
NBC and NBCSN can occasionally air Florida away games as well, if scheduling conflicts arise with other networks.
NBC is an over-the-air channel, another station you can watch for free with a digital antenna connected to your digital television. The station is otherwise included in most every cable plan that includes local channels, and NBCSN comes standard in most every basic cable plan or higher.
Watch NBC college football games online or with their app - available on iOS and Google Play stores for free, as well as Chromecast, Xbox, Samsung Smart TVs, fireTV products, Roku players and Microsoft smart devices. Login required.
