You can watch ESPN3 without cable. ESPN3 can watch with the following streaming services: Sling TV

Beginning with the April 2018 launch of the subscription over-the-top content service ESPN+, a significant number of programs previously available on ESPN3 have been paywalled and now require an ESPN+ subscription (although, unlike ESPN3, ESPN+ is a separate service that does not require the user to be an ESPN subscriber). In 2019, the third level of online content, completely free without the requirement of a subscription to either ESPN+ or a cable provider, will be available (as the XFL team name and logo reveals).

ESPN3 debuted on Xbox Live on November 1, 2010. This service provides Xbox Live subscribers free access to live sporting events on ESPN3, among other things. At launch, an Xbox Live Gold subscription was necessary to use the ESPN app; however, with the June 2014 upgrade to Xbox Live, Gold membership is no longer required to access ESPN on Xbox 360 or Xbox One. Dish Network introduced ESPN3 in April 2014.
