How to Watch Houston Cougars Basketball Live Online

Written by John O'Connor

Last updated on

Watch Houston Cougars basketball live on CBS, ESPN+, ESPN, and ESPN2. Hulu + Live TV is the only live TV streaming service that allows Cougars basketball fans to watch every game from one app.

Because Houston basketball games stream often on ESPN+, Hulu + Live TV, with its ESPN+ bundle, as well as the rest of the channels you need to watch Houston basketball all season, is our top pick.

The most important channels for Houston basketball fans

In 2019, the AAC signed a 12 year TV deal with ESPN, which has resulted in a good chunk of the AAC regular season live streaming exclusively on ESPN+, which can be frustrating for fans.

Regular season Houston basketball games will air on ABC, CBS, ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPN+.

March Madness games will be carried by CBS, TBS, TNT, and truTV.

Watch Houston basketball on Hulu + Live TV

Hulu + Live TV is the clear winner for streaming Houston Cougars basketball because the platform incorporates ESPN+ programming directly into the Hulu interface. This means Cougars fans can watch the team’s entire season with Hulu.

Hulu carries KHOU CBS 11 Houston for watching the Texans on Sundays, but lacks AT&T SportsNet Southwest for watching in-market Rockets and Astros games.

Watch Houston basketball on ESPN+

Houston basketball fans also have the option to sign up for ESPN+ à la carte, which will get them access to several regular season games. However, with just an ESPN+ subscription, Houston fans will miss the games that air on ABC, CBS, ESPN, and ESPN2, as well as the NCAA Tournament games.

If you want to watch Houston basketball and Houston pro sports

The main drawback for Houston sports fans with Hulu is the platform lacks Houston’s regional sports network, AT&T SportsNet Southwest. If you want to watch Cougars basketball and also catch Rockets and Astros games, sign up for DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” and then add on an ESPN+ membership separately.
