How to Watch Houston Cougars Football Live in 2022

Written by John O'Connor

Last updated on

Before they join the Big 12 for the 2023 season, the Houston Cougars football team will be playing in the AAC Conference for 2022, which means many of the games will air on ESPN channels. There are several good options for live streaming Houston Cougars football with no long term contract required. Our top pick, DIRECTV STREAM, gets local Cougar fans access to UH football, as well as Houston Rockets, Houston Astros, and Houston Texans games on Bally Sports Southwest, KHOU CBS 11, and AT&T SportsNet Southwest.

Watching Houston football: our top picks

Although the platform doesn’t carry ESPN+, we like DIRECTV STREAM “Ultra” here because it gets you ESPNU, CBS Sports Network, and all the rest of the channels you need to watch Houston football, but also Bally Sports Southwest for watching Houston Rockets games in-market, and AT&T SportsNet Southwest for watching the Astros.

Watch the Texans on KHOU CBS 11.


fuboTV “Sports Lite” carries all the channels you need to watch Houston football except for ESPN+. Astros fans can watch the team’s regular season action in-market on AT&T SportsNet Southwest with a fuboTV subscription.


If you only want to watch Houston Cougars football and aren’t interested in the Astros or Rockets, Hulu + Live TV is the best option because of the platform’s ESPN+ bundle. With Hulu + Live TV, Houston football fans can get every game from one app.

Note that you don’t need a Hulu subscription to get ESPN+ programming, it is possible to sign up à la carte.


YouTube TV doesn’t carry ESPN+, but the live TV streaming service does offer all the channels you need to stream Houston football games, plus an extensive 4K lineup, and a bevy of innovative features, like Stats View and Key Plays. A Google account is required to signup, but watching football on YouTube TV is fun, pure and simple.
