Ya’ll, FSU got robbed last year, period. Can the team bounce back after last season’s playoff snub? We will be tuning in to find out.

Several live TV streaming services, including DIRECTV STREAM “Choice,” fuboTV, Hulu + Live TV, and YouTube TV carry the channels you need to watch most FSU football games, such as ABC, WCTV CBS 6 Tallahassee, ESPN and the ACC Network. Our top pick is DIRECTV STREAM because of the channel lineup, regional sports network coverage, and unlimited DVR.

This team does not have a televised game scheduled in the next two weeks.

Important channels

The ACC and ESPN signed a TV deal that runs through 2036. Under the terms of that contract, there are four channels that the Seminoles will regularly appear on: ABC, ESPN, ESPN2, and the ACC Network. Some “smaller” games may also appear on ESPNU or CBS Sports Network. The same channels will also air Florida State basketball games.

Our picks

Because of its excellent user experience and ease of setup, fuboTV is our favorite platform for streaming football, both college and NFL.

Although an upgrade to fuboTV “Extra” or “Sports Lite” is required to access ESPNU, the 1,000 hours of DVR storage and ability to pause memberships during the football off-season were big factors in choosing fuboTV as the best choice for football fans in Tallahassee.

fuboTV is also our top pick for watching the Falcons, Jaguars, Dolphins, and Buccaneers.


DIRECTV STREAM’s “Choice” package is expensive, but it does carry ABC, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, and the ACC Network, plus unlimited DVR.

You can watch most Florida State football games on DIRECTV STREAM “Choice.”


Hulu + Live TV is a good option for watching FSU football. Although the base package carries ABC, ESPN, ESPN2, and the ACC Network at a lower price than fuboTV’s “Extra” package, the savings are wiped out when you upgrade from Hulu’s limited DVR storage of 50 hours per month.

Having said that, Hulu’s ESPN+ bundle gets sports fans access to out-of-market NHL and MLB, plus UFC Fight Nights, all for the base rate.


Sling TV now carries ABC in 8 markets, but Tallahassee isn’t one of them. The only market in the southeast that can watch ABC on Sling TV is Raleigh, and that is with Sling Blue, not Sling Orange.

However, Sling Orange + Sports Extra is a good budget option for streaming ESPN, ESPN2, ACC Network, and ACC Network Extra through the ESPN app.


Although a Google account is required to use the service, YouTube TV is an innovator in the sports streaming space, and a great option for Seminoles fans. Features like Stats View and Key Plays are among the best we have seen for watching sports, and do away with the need for ESPN’s Gamecast.

YouTube TV comes with unlimited DVR storage, and there is a 4K upgrade, called 4K Plus, available that features ESPN in 4K.

As an added bonus, FSU basketball fans can watch ACC Network Extra games with their YouTube TV login credentials on the ESPN app.

Does Florida State football air on ACC Network Extra?

Not in the regular season, no. Some FSU football games will air on ACC Network, but never on ACC Network Extra. ACC Network Extra is a digital-only broadcast that is most important for ACC basketball and lacrosse, but not usually football. The one exception to the rule is the FSU spring game which is carried by ACC Network Extra.
