Watch the East Carolina men’s basketball team take on their AAC rivals live without cable on the streaming device of your choice.


With fellow AAC members Houston and Memphis often competing at the elite levels of college basketball, East Carolina sports fans have a lot to look forward to on the hardwood. The AAC has a long-term TV deal with ESPN, which means several East Carolina games each season will stream exclusively on ESPN+. To get access to East Carolina’s entire basketball season from one app, try Hulu + Live TV.

The most important channels for East Carolina basketball fans

As I mentioned earlier in this ECU Pirate’s basketball viewing guide, East Carolina plays in a league with a long-term deal with ESPN’s family of channels. As the college basketball season heats up and teams get in position to compete for an NCAA Tournament birth, more AAC games will air on ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPNU. However, earlier in the season ESPN+ will carry a large chunk of the East Carolina basketball inventory.

How to watch ECU basketball on Hulu + Live TV

ECU basketball’s smaller games against lesser known AAC teams that take place earlier in the season are often streamed exclusively on ESPN+, which means there technically is no channel. These games can only be viewed on the ESPN app, or with Hulu + Live TV through their ESPN+ bundle. If you want access to every ECU basketball game, then Hulu + Live TV has the channel lineup to get you there.

Hulu also carries WYDO-TV, eastern North Carolina’s FOX affiliate, for watching the Carolina Panthers live every Sunday.

How to watch ECU basketball on YouTube TV

YouTube TV carries all the channels you need to watch ECU basketball, but Pirates fans will have to add ESPN+ à la carte to get streaming exclusive AAC games.

YouTube TV features unlimited DVR and is the new home of NFL Sunday Ticket, the NFL’s premium out-of-market TV package.

DIRECTV STREAM is another streaming service that carries all the channels you need to watch ECU basketball, expect ESPN+.

How to watch ECU basketball on Sling TV

Although the platform is lacking ABC and CBS, and only carries FOX and NBC in select markets, Sling Orange is a good budget option that gets ECU fans access to most games, and all of the Pirate’s biggest matchups.

Sling Orange is currently the cheapest way to stream ESPN live without cable.
