Watch Clemson take on Tennessee in the Orange Bowl on 12/30/22 with fuboTV, YouTube TV, DIRECTV STREAM, or Sling Orange.
In this Clemson football viewing guide, I will walk Tigers fans through the best options for live streaming Clemson football in 2022.
Although several live TV streaming services carry the core channels you need to watch Clemson football, DIRECTV STREAM “Choice,” with its coverage of ABC, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ACC Network, and regional sports networks for ACC on RSN games, is the most complete. Clemson RSN broadcasts have confused fans in recent years, so adding a platform that carries RSNs like MASN and Bally Sports Southeast is a nice insurance policy to guarantee complete coverage of each Clemson football season. Although the platforms lack the RSNs offered by DIRECTV STREAM “Choice,” fuboTV and YouTube TV are also good choices for Clemson fans, and will make 4K enthusiasts particularly happy with their growing lineups of high resolution sports programming.

Clemson football 2022 TV channels
The ACC signed a TV deal with ESPN which runs through 2036. Under the terms of that deal, Clemson games will appear on one of four channels: ABC, ESPN, ESPN2, and the ACC Network. As a team that usually contends for championships, it is unlikely Clemson games will appear on the ACC Network more than once or twice a season. 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.

How to watch this week’s Clemson game
Looking for a specific Clemson game? Using the Clemson football 2022 TV schedule and comparing it with the live TV streaming services that will carry each game, we break down the best options for watching Clemson every week in the easy to use table below.
Watching Clemson football: our top picks
fuboTV is our favorite for streaming football, both NFL and college, and the platform carries all the channels you need to live stream every Clemson game this season. As an added bonus, fuboTV memberships can be put on pause during the football off-season which is a convenient way to save money if your main reason for signing up is to watch college football.
One drawback: an upgrade to the “Extra” or “Sports Lite” package is required to get access to ESPNU.
Most sports fans sign up for a streaming service to watch more than one sport. If your main goal is watching Clemson football, there are better options than DIRECTV STREAM despite the fact that the platform carries all the requisite channels for ACC football. However, if you want access to NBA, NHL, and MLB games from your local teams, like the Braves for example, DIRECTV STREAM, with its selection of regional sports networks, provides the most coverage in the southeast.
Hulu + Live TV is a top pick of our editorial board for watching Clemson football. Although the low price for Hulu is somewhat deceiving because the base package offers only 50 hours of DVR storage, the ACC Network is included in the base package and ESPN+ comes as well as part of the Disney+ bundle.
The lack of ABC here means many of Clemson’s big games will be blacked out, but the availability of ESPN, ESPN2, and the ACC network aren’t bad for the price.
YouTube TV is a great option for Clemson fans. The platform carries ACC Network in the base package, as well as all the channels you need to live stream Clemson football. Some of Clemson’s games may be broadcast in 4K on YouTube TV if you upgrade to the 4K package. The one drawback of YouTube TV is a full Google account is required to signup.
