Houston football has joined the Big 12 for the 2023 season, which means some games will stream on ESPN+.

Hulu + Live TV, with the ESPN+ bundle, offers full coverage of the Cougars from one app. If you are ok signing up for ESPN+ a la carte, Fubo is a better choice for comprehensive Houston sports coverage. Fubo gets local Cougar fans access to UH football, as well as Houston Rockets and Houston Astros games on AT&T Sportsnet Southwest, plus KHOU-TV CBS 11 for watching CJ Stroud and the Texans.

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.
