DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” is a good option for Eagles fans who want to watch the new look BC team under Bill O’Brien, plus the Pats, Celtics, and Red Sox all from the same app.

If you are OK with some gaps in coverage, there are cheaper solutions, such as fuboTV. When selecting a streaming service to watch BC football as well as Boston College basketball, just remember one rule: ACC Network is a must. As a less popular ACC football team, a lot of the Eagle’s inventory will end up on ACC Network.

Important channels

The ACC signed a TV deal with ESPN which runs through 2036. Under the terms of that deal, Boston College games will usually appear on one of four channels: ABC, ESPN, ESPN2, and the ACC Network. In the table below, we have also included Boston’s regional sports networks, NBC Sports Boston and NESN, the local TV home of the Red Sox.

ACC football TV channels are a bit more complicated than some leagues due to the ACC on Regional Sports Networks program which allows for some TV inventory of ACC football games to air on local regional sports networks.
