How to Watch Akron Zips Football Live Without Cable TV

Written by John O'Connor

Last updated on

The Akron Zips football team plays in the MAC Conference. You can live stream Akron Zips football games from an iPhone, Android device, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and Samsung Smart TVs, as well as many other streaming devices. The best live TV streaming service for watching Akron football is Hulu + Live TV. Hulu’s ESPN+ bundle, plus extensive sports channel lineup in the base package, allows Zips fans to stream the team’s entire season from just one app. For Cleveland sports fans who want a streaming service that carries the Cleveland Guardians and Cavaliers in addition to the Zips, we recommend DIRECTV STREAM “Ultimate.” Adding an ESPN+ membership to DIRECTV STREAM will allow Akron fans to live stream every game.

Important Akron football channels

Based on current TV contracts with CBS Sports Network and ESPN, most MAC games, including Akron games, will air on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN+, and CBS Sports Network. Early in the season, when Akron faces an ACC, SEC, Big 10, or PAC-12 opponent, the game will often appear on that conference’s network, such as Big 10 Network or ACC Network. In the channel comparison table below, I have also included the live TV streaming services that carry Bally Sports Great Lakes and Bally Sports Ohio, the regional sports networks that broadcast local MLB, NBA, and NHL action to sports fans in Ohio.

With ESPN+, Akron football fans get about 4 games per season at a low price. There is good value here, especially if you are a Stipe Miocic and UFC fan.


Sling, with its lack of major local channels in most markets, is not a complete solution for watching the NFL, and will only get Zips fans about half of the team’s games. Sling lacks CBS Sports Network, ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC in most households. Pair Sling with ESPN+ for better coverage.
