Although the football team in Tuscaloosa gets all the attention, Alabama Crimson Tide basketball is a force to be reckoned with, and has competed for national championships with regularity.

Because of the Alabama basketball games that appear exclusively on ESPN+, the only streaming service that offers full coverage of the entire Tide basketball season from the same app is Hulu + Live TV.

To watch the Hawks and Braves in-market in addition to Crimson Tide basketball, DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” or Fubo are the best choices because of their selection of regional sports networks that air in the South.
