All eyes will be on Boulder this season as Deon Sanders takes over as head coach at Colorado. Football fans on the Front Range can live-stream Colorado Buffaloes football in 2023, but choosing a live TV streaming service that carries the PAC-12 Network in its channel lineup is necessary.

The Buffaloes appeared on the PAC-12 Network 6 times in 2022, and with that trend likely to continue in 2023, Buffaloes fans will be forced to choose between Sling TV and Fubo “Sports Lite,” as the only streaming platforms that currently offer PAC-12 Network. Our top pick for watching Colorado football is fuboTV’s “Sports Lite” package, which offers significantly better sports coverage than even the best Sling TV upgrades. Fubo also carries KCNC-TV CBS 4 Colorado for watching the Broncos on Sundays.

Colorado football players to watch in 2023

If you thought Deon Sanders taking over as Colorado’s head coach was a compelling reason to tune into Buffs games this season, you’ll be even more motivated to watch Colorado football when you learn that his son, Shedeur Sanders, will the team’s starting QB. Shedeur followed his Dad from Jackson State, where he threw for over 3,000 yards last season. Having a father-son coach/QB combo is another reason the Buffs will be must-see TV in 2023. As an extra tidbit, Coach Prime made the team earn their jersey numbers this season.

How to watch Colorado football on Fubo

If the goal is watching the Colorado Buffaloes football team this season, there is no better choice than fuboTV’s “Sports Lite” package. Fubo “Sports Lite” offers the PAC-12 Network as well as all the additional channels you need to watch both college and pro football, including KCNC-TV CBS 4 Colorado.

Fubo also carries the channels Buffs fans need to watch the big nationally televised Colorado football games like Oregon, TCU, UCLA, and USC, often in 4K.

As an added bonus, Fubo carries Altitude Sports for watching Avalanche hockey games in the mountain west region.

How to watch Colorado football on Sling TV


Sling TV Blue + Sports Extra doesn’t offer complete coverage of Colorado football, but does offer FS1 and PAC-12 Network at a good price. Upgrading to Sling TV Orange & Blue + Sports Extra gets fans the ESPN family of channels, which offers more coverage.

However, the lack of FOX, CBS, and NBC in Denver means that some of the biggest games this season will be blacked out on Sling TV.

Fubo is a better option for watching Deon’s inaugural season on the Colorado sideline.


How to watch Colorado football on YouTube TV

YouTube TV carries FOX, CBS, FS1, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, and many more sports channels, so Buffs fans can tune in for about half of the team’s games. However, YouTube TV is missing PAC-12 Network, which means major gaps in Colorado football coverage in 2023.

Although we love YouTube TV as an option for streaming college and pro football, there are better options for watching the Buffs in 2023 than YouTube TV.

Watching Colorado football FAQ

Can I watch Colorado football on my phone?

Yes, every major live TV streaming service listed on our site, including our top pick Fubo, offers a mobile app for Android and mobile so you can live-stream Colorado football from your phone.

Can I watch Colorado football on Hulu + Live TV?

PAC-12 football fans can watch some of Colorado’s games on Hulu + Live TV, but with PAC-12 Network missing from Hulu’s channel lineup, there are better options for watching the Buffs this season than Hulu + Live TV.
