StreamSavvy’s daily guide for the best TV from January 9, 2017. Watch the College Football Championship without cable tonight or stream the Crown. Here’s the post with what to watch, why you should check it out, and how to stream it.
The Hollywood Foreign Press made it pretty clear last night. The show to watch from 2016 is The Crown. The Netflix original took the Best Television Series Drama, and Claire Foy took the best actress award in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Drama Television Series….and then there’s a little football game tonight. There you have it.
Golden Globe Winner: The Crown
The $100 million bet from Netflix. The Crown is a period drama and is Netflix’s attempt to capitalize on the popularity of shows like Downton Abbey and to a lesser extent Peaky Blinders.
The first season, released in November 2016, is the story of the beginning of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign of the United Kingdom. The Crown follows gives us an inside look at Queen Elizabeth II starting just before her wedding in 1947. The plan is for six seasons that will bring the story right up to the present day.
The average person spends 4 YEARS of their lives searching for something to watch. Really. Take your life back and download the StreamSavvy mobile app FREE right now.
Here’s the bottom line on The Crown. If you’re looking for an exciting, heart pounding drama with tons of violence, sex, and messiness, this is NOT the show for you. If you want to see Claire Foy, the actress who plays Queen Elizabeth, kill it by pulling you into the struggle between being a queen and being a young woman all with crazy good cinematography, then this is a great watch.

How to watch: you can watch online, on your mobile device, on your smart TV, or on your streaming device through the Netflix app. If you don’t have it, or aren’t using your parents’ / sister’s / neighbor’s login, you can sign up for a free trial then roll into a $9.99 per month subscription if you like it.
Watch the College Football Championship without Cable
It’s starts with the first whistle kicking off two-a-days in August. Half a year later, two teams have stood the test of time and go head-to-head. As the Clemson Tigers take on the Alabama Crimson Tide tonight for the title of National Champion, we’re all wondering if anyone can beat that insane Alabama defense.
The answer is yes. The winning formula is a super talented D-line and Deshaun Watson. Watson tore up the Ohio State Buckeyes in the semifinal game while the defense shut out the Buckeyes in a bowl game for the first time in almost 100 years. If any team can take down Alabama tonight, it’s the Clemson Tigers. (ESPN 8/7c)
