Cincinnati football is now part of the Big 12, a conference that plays on FOX, FS1, and ESPN channels primarily. Because the Big 12 lacks a conference channel like Big Ten Network, smaller games stream on ESPN+. With ABC, FOX, CBS, ESPN, ESPN2, FS1, and ESPN+ included in the Hulu Disney+ bundle, Hulu + Live TV is the best option for UC fans in 2023. Hulu + Live TV is also a good option for streaming Buckeye football, however, if watching the Reds is a priority, go with Fubo.
All the channels you need to watch Bearcats football, plus ESPN+ for full coverage.
