You can watch Duke Blue Devils basketball live without cable on the device of your choice, including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, iPhone, Samsung Smart TVs and more. The ACC has a TV deal with ESPN that runs through the 2036 season, which means regular season Duke basketball games will air on ESPN, ESPN2, and ACC Network, plus some national broadcasts on CBS.
The most cost effective way to watch most Duke basketball games is by adding Sports Extra to a Sling TV Orange account. Sling Orange carries ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPN3, and adding Sports Extra adds ACC Network as well. The downside with Sling Orange is the platform lacks CBS for NCAA Tournament games, as well as regional sports networks for watching in-market Duke games that are part of the ACC on RSNs lineup. For full coverage in the southeast and mid-atlantic region, opt for DIRECTV STREAM “Choice.”
