Watch Cincinnati basketball on Hulu + Live TV
Watch Cincinnati basketball on ESPN+
If you’re a Cincinnati basketball fan that is shopping for a deal, and you are ok not watching every single game of the season, ESPN+ is a good option. With ESPN+, NCAAB fans in Cincinnati can watch about half of the Bearcats games.
Be aware that ESPN+ does not carry the NCAA Tournament or the AAC Tournament.
Watch Cincinnati basketball on fuboTV
Although fuboTV lacks ESPN+, the streaming service that carries a large chunk of UC’s early season games, the platform is attractive for Ohio sports fans who also want to watch Ohio State football and the Bengals in addition to Bearcat hoops. fuboTV carries WKRC-TV CBS 12 Cincinnati for watching the Bengals, and WXIX-TV FOX 19 Cincinnati for watching the Buckeyes when they appear on Big Noon Kickoff.
Watch Cincinnati basketball on DIRECTV STREAM
With ESPN, ESPN2, CBS, and FOX all in the base package, plus unlimited DVR for recording college basketball games, DIRECTV STREAM is another good option for UC basketball fans, albeit with gaps in coverage when UC plays on ESPN+.
Watching UC basketball FAQ
YouTube TV will get you about half of UC basketball’s regular season, and all of the AAC and NCAA Tournaments. With YouTube TV, Cincinnati basketball fans can watch games that air on ABC, CBS, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, TNT, and TBS. However, YouTube TV doesn’t carry ESPN+, so there will be holes in regular season coverage for Bearcats basketball fans.
Sling TV Orange will get you Bearcats basketball games that air on ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPNU. Sling Orange also carries TBS and TNT for NCAA Tournament coverage. Unfortunately, Sling lacks CBS and ESPN+, which means you can’t follow the entire Cincinnati basketball season on Sling TV.
