How do I watch a fixture?

If you wish to watch one fixture you should purchase a day pass.


I am a big College Football fan, but not so keen on the other sports. Which package is best for me?

The NCAA College monthly recurring college pass offers you monthly access to all college games on the service and is ideally suited to the college football fan giving you flexibility to subscribe for as long as you wish.


How does the monthly recurring pass work?

Once purchased, customers will be able to gain access to the relevant service for a calendar month. Upon the end of the month, the pass will automatically renew. For example, if a customer subscribes on the 15th February, the pass will run until 14th March and will be automatically billed on 15th March.

The minimum term is one month. There is no maximum term so the monthly pass gives you the flexibility to subscribe for as long as you wish. To cancel a monthly recurring pass, please contact a support agent here: or view the ESPN Player FAQ section for more information about cancellation.
