CBS has announced that it will stream its entire 17-game SEC football schedule that begins this Saturday with the annual Kickoff Game in Atlanta. The big thing is that it will be free to all and you won’t have to go through the headache of authenticating with your cable or satellite login.

CBS has done this before and it’s good that it will be streaming its entire schedule again. The games will be available on CBSSports.com as well as its mobile and tablet apps.

From the official press release:

An all-22 camera angle will be available along with the main camera angle to provide a full-field view from the 50-yard line showing all players on the field — ideal for fans who want to study formations and get a coach’s perspective on each play. Viewers will have the ability to switch back and forth between the game simulcast and all-22 camera angle, and will also have access to live team and player statistics, game highlights, Twitter integration, interactive elements including polling, and additional on-demand video.

There will also be an online-only pregame, halftime and postgame show that will feature Teryn Schaefer and Matthew Coca as hosts and former Notre Dame quarterback Brady Quinn as the analyst. SEC on CBS analyst Gary Danielson will appear on the postgame show live from each game site.

As we mentioned last week in our King for a Day series on CBS Sports, the online experience has to improve. When you log into the CBS Sports apps, they’re not very user-friendly and live games can be hard to find unless you know where to look. There is a “Live Events” button on the main page, but the SEC game isn’t always on the top when you tap on the button so you’ll have to scroll to find it. On the left hand side, you can swipe right to get a side menu, but not everyone will know to do this.

CBS Sports app
Here’s hoping the CBS Sports app will become easier to navigate down the road.
