StreamSavvy Guide: What to watch January 2, 2017

StreamSavvy’s daily guide for the best TV from January 2, 2017. Stream Beyond, the Rose Bowl Parade, and the best college bowls of the day that you can watch online on ESPN. Here’s the post with what to watch, why you should check it out, and how to stream it.


Happy New Year! 2017 isn’t wasting any time in jumping back into the deep end of TV show land. After a weekend of terrible live performances, (Ronda Rousey, Mariah Carey, Ohio State football), we could use it. With lots of season premieres and series premieres, there’s lots to watch. But first, we have “New Years Day Observed”. That means a line up with some great college football along with the Rose Parade to get the week started.

Stream the Rose Parade

New Years Day Tradition: The Rose Parade

Today marks the 128th Rose Parade and a family tradition unlike any other. Not really. But what would a New Years morning be without the slow procession of floats, bands, and dancers on in the background?

When the Rose Parade kicks of at 11am ET this morning in the perfect paradise of a downtown Pasadena setting, it will be the result of over 80,000 hours of work. It’s America’s New Year celebration to welcome the world to first day of the year, and a tradition of community spirit and love of pageantry on display from Pasadena for more than 100 years. It also sets the stage for the Rose Bowl game, which carries the tradition through the entire day.

The theme for the parade this year is Echoes of Success. Check out the official guide. Happy New! (HGTV 11am ET)

How to watch: you can watch HGTV through Sling TV (both the Orange package and the Blue package) or Playstation Vue (all tiers).

Stream Beyond Premiere

Live then Binge: Beyond

It’s been a year since the ABC Family became Freeform, and now they’re trying new things. Tonight, the newest series from Freeform, Beyond, will air with two back-to-back episodes. At the same time, the entire 10-episode season will be released on Hulu and the other Freeform digital properties. An interesting “digital blitz” for a new show.

With a number of different ways to watch the show online and digitally, here are the deetz you need for the show. The show centers on Holden Matthews (Burkely Duffield) when he awakes from a 12-year coma. He’s somehow blessed new abilities that pull him into the center of a dangerous conspiracy. Holden also searches for answers to the questions of what happened to him during the past dozen years. However, the most important theme is Holden’s quest to understand why it he was in a coma to start with. (Freeform back-to-back new episodes at 9/8c and 10/9c)

How to watch: Freeform has done a great job of making this show available to you to watch online and across multiple streaming applications. To watch the 2 new episodes as they air tonight on the Freeform channel, you can stream in real time through Sling TV (Orange package) or Playstation Vue (all tiers).

If traditional TV isn’t your jam, you can stream the entire season on Hulu.

Live stream the Penn State in the Rose Bowl

New Years Day = Bowl Day

The Saturday bowl games pretty much sucked. So now we get a second chance some great bowls, and we get to stream and watch the Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl. Check out the full bowl schedule and how to stream each game online without cable or satellite.

Here are the highlight games of the day:

Rose Bowl Game Presented by Northwestern Mutual – #5 Penn State vs. #9 USC. There was a pretty good case for Penn State to make the College Football playoffs. The selection committee chose Ohio State. We all know how that ended. Looking to drive that point home, Penn State takes on one of the hottest teams in college football in the USC Trojans. This should be a good one. (ESPN 5/4c)

Allstate Sugar Bowl – #14 Auburn Tigers vs. #7 Oklahoma Sooners. Not for the faint hearted. Two of the biggest offensive powerhouses go head-to-head in what promises to be an unforgettable shootout. (ESPN 8:30/7:30c)

How to watch the best TV: With many ways to stream live sports, you can stream ESPN through Sling TV (Orange) or Playstation Vue (all tiers). With both of these streaming services, you can use your login credentials to access to the WatchESPN app for free.
