Watch Iowa basketball on DIRECTV STREAM

DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” is the best option for Hawkeye basketball fans who also want to watch their regional MLB, NHL, and NBA teams.

Absent an interest in pro sports, YouTube TV or Hulu + Live TV are both better options for live streaming Hawkeye basketball.

Watch Iowa basketball on Hulu + Live TV

Hulu + Live TV, with unlimited DVR and all the channels you need to watch Iowa hoops in the base package, is a great option for live streaming Iowa football and basketball.

Watch Iowa basketball on YouTube TV

YouTube TV carries all the channels you need to watch Iowa basketball and football, plus the platform boasts an excellent 4K add-on to watch Cade McNamara and the Hawkeyes on Big Noon Kickoff on FOX.

Watch Iowa basketball on fuboTV

fuboTV carries all the channels you need to watch Iowa football and basketball, but lacks TNT and TBS, which means holes in coverage come March Madness time.

Watch Iowa basketball on Sling TV

Unfortunately, Sling TV divides FS1 and ESPN into separate color tiers, which means that it’s necessary to fully upgrade to Sling Orange & Blue + Sports Extra to watch Big Ten sports, and even then, the platform lacks ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC in the Iowa City market.

Unless you want to deal with installing an air antenna, Sling TV isn’t a great option if you want full coverage of Hawkeye football and basketball.
