College football fans in Bloomington can watch Indiana Hoosiers football live without cable with fuboTV, DIRECTV STREAM “Choice,” YouTube TV, or Hulu + Live TV. My top two picks for watching Indiana Football in 2023 are DIRECTV STREAM’s “Choice” package and fuboTV because both platforms carry all the channels you need to watch Indiana Hoosiers football, including Big Ten Network, plus Bally Sports Indiana for Pacers games, and WTTV CBS 4 Indianapolis for watching Colts games.

DIRECTV STREAM – Choice

ABC, ESPN, WTTV CBS 4 Indianapolis, FOX, FS1, Big Ten Network, Bally Sports Indiana, and more.

The most important channels for Hoosier football fans

The Big Ten’s TV rights are held by CBS, NBC, and FOX. FS1 and Big Ten Network, as properties owned by FOX and the Big Ten respectively, will feature less sought-after Big Ten matchups while FOX’s Big Noon Kickoff airs the week’s premier Big Ten game.

How to watch this week’s Hoosiers football game

Looking for a specific Indiana Football game? In the table below, we list all of the upcoming televised Indiana football games as well as the live TV streaming providers that carry them.


How to watch Indiana football on fuboTV

Our regular readers won’t be surprised to see fuboTV leading the pack as our top choice for live streaming Indiana football games. Out of the gate, fuboTV comes with 1,000 hours of DVR storage and with ABC, CBS, NBC, ESPN, FOX, FS1, and Big Ten Network all in the base package, has all the channels you need to watch Big Ten Football.

fuboTV also carries WTTV CBS 4 Indy for live streaming Indianapolis Colts football.


How to watch Indiana football on Hulu + Live TV

Hulu + Live TV carries all the channels you need to watch Big Ten Football, and checks a big box for us by carrying the Big Ten Network in their base package. The ESPN+ bundle gets NCAAF fans even more college football from conferences outside the Power 5, plus smaller Big 12 and SEC matchups.


How to watch Indiana football on DIRECTV STREAM

Unfortunately, DirecTV Stream doesn’t carry Big Ten Network in its base package and requires fans to subscribe to its premium “Choice” package to get the channel. This is an issue for Hoosiers fans because IU will be featured on the Big Ten Network quite a bit during the college football season. The real value here is for local IU fans who are also Pacers fans as DirecTV Stream “Choice” carries Bally Sports Indiana, the regional sports network that carries most of the Pacers regular season.


How to watch Indiana football on YouTube TV

YouTube TV is another great option for watching Big Ten Football. The platform features an extensive lineup of 4K sports programming and has all the channels you need to live stream the Hoosiers.


How to watch Indiana football on Sling TV

Unfortunately, Indianapolis and Bloomington aren’t markets that get FOX or NBC on Sling TV, so there are major gaps in coverage for watching the Hoosiers.

Sling TV Blue + Sports Extra offers Big Ten Network, but not much else for Indiana football fans. Hoosier fans in Indiana are better off with fuboTV or DIRECTV STREAM “Choice.”
