Ball State football channels
Based on current TV contracts with CBS Sports Network and ESPN, most MAC games, including Ball State games, will air on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN+, and CBS Sports Network. Early in the season, when Ball State 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 NBC Sports Chicago, Marquee Sports Network, and Bally Sports Indiana, the regional sports networks that broadcast local MLB, NBA, and NHL action to sports fans in Indiana.
