How to Watch Alabama Crimson Tide Football Live Online in 2022

Written by John O'Connor

Last updated on

In the season finale, the Crimson Tide will take on the Kansas State Wildcats from the Caeser’s Superdome in New Orleans on New Year’s Eve. Watch the 11 CST kickoff live without cable on ESPN with fuboTV, Hulu + Live TV, Sling TV Orange, YouTube TV, or DIRECTV STREAM.

Football fans in Tuscaloosa, and across the country, have several options for watching Alabama football live online.

Now that the non-conference schedule is out of the way, Bama football games will air on major national broadcasts, except for the Austin Peay game.

Our top two picks for watching Alabama football are fuboTV and Hulu + Live TV, both of which carry SEC Network in the base package, plus FOX, ESPN, ABC, CBS, and more. Because the Austin Peay game will air on ESPN+, Hulu + Live TV is the only live TV streaming service that will allow Tide fans to watch every remaining game of the 2022 season on the same platform.

The most important channels for Alabama football fans

Starting in 2024, ABC and ESPN will have exclusive rights to broadcast SEC football, however, for the 2022 season, CBS still has the rights to its SEC Game of the Week broadcast, which airs the biggest SEC football game at 3:30 EST.

ESPN has rights to air some SEC football games in 2022, and SEC football games will be on the SEC Network as well. The Big 12’s TV contract comes into play for the Alabama vs. Texas game on September 10th in Austin, which will air on FOX’s Big Noon Kickoff.

The best options for live streaming Crimson Tide Football in 2022: our top picks

Due to the fact that SEC football is broadcast on a narrow range of channels that are widely available on most streaming services, Alabama football fans have several good options for watching the Tide live online.

fuboTV is one of our top picks for live streaming Alabama football in 2022.

We also recommend fuboTV for watching the NFL, and the platform’s elegant interface is one of the biggest reasons why. The user experience is straightforward, easy to use, and geared towards sports. fuboTV carries all the channels you need to live stream SEC Football, but an upgrade to the Sports Lite package is required if you want access to SEC Network.

fuboTV is also our top pick for watching the Saints and Falcons in 2022.

Although the base package only comes with 50 hours of DVR storage, Hulu + Live TV is an excellent option for watching Alabama football. Hulu + Live TV carries SEC Network in the base package and the ESPN+ bundle gives football fans even more games to enjoy.

Hulu + Live TV is the best option for Alabama fans who want to watch every game from the same platform.

Like fuboTV, DIRECTV STREAM doesn’t carry SEC Network in its base package, and yet this probably doesn’t matter for Alabama fans unless they want to watch film on an upcoming opponent. The Tide are a national brand and most of their games will be carried by either CBS or ESPN. Upgrading to the DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” package is a good idea for fans who want access to Braves baseball and Hawks basketball as DIRECTV STREAM is the only live TV streaming provider that carries Bally Sports South and Southeast, which are the regional sports networks that broadcast Atlanta pro sports to local fans.

YouTube TV is a great option for watching college football, Alabama Crimson Tide games included. YouTube TV carries SEC Network in the base package and offers unlimited DVR storage. Fantasy football fans can sync NFL.com fantasy teams with the YouTube TV mobile app for real time scoring updates.

Best budget option for live streaming Alabama football

Paramount+ won’t get you ESPN or SEC Network, but for the remainder of the CBS TV contract, it will allow Bama fans to watch the SEC Game of the Week, featured night games, and the SEC Championship game. Great value for money here. Paramount+ also delivers tons of AFC football action for teams like the Jaguars, Titans, and Dolphins.
