How to Watch Kent State Golden Flashes Football Live Without Cable

Written by John O'Connor

Last updated on

Kent State’s football team plays in the MAC Conference. You can live stream Kent State Golden Flashes football games from an iPhone, Android device, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and Samsung Smart TVs. The best live TV streaming service for watching KSU football is Hulu + Live TV. Hulu’s ESPN+ bundle, plus extensive sports channel lineup in the base package, allows Golden Flashes fans to stream the team’s entire season from one app. For Cleveland sports fans who want a streaming service that carries the Cleveland Guardians and Cleveland Cavaliers in addition to the Golden Flashes, we recommend DIRECTV STREAM “Ultimate.” Adding an ESPN+ membership to DIRECTV STREAM will allow KSU football fans to live stream every game.


ESPN, ESPNU, CBS Sports Network, Bally Sports Great Lakes, live stream the Browns on WOIO CBS Channel 19, Cleveland.

Kent State football channels

Based on current TV contracts with CBS Sports Network and ESPN, most MAC games, including Kent State games, will air on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN+, and CBS Sports Network. Early in the season, when Kent State faces an ACC, SECBig 10, or PAC-12 opponent, the game will often appear on that conference’s network, such as Big 10 Network or ACC Network. In the channel comparison table below, I have also included the live TV streaming services that carry Bally Sports Great Lakes and Bally Sports Ohio, the regional sports networks that broadcast local MLBNBA, and NHL action to sports fans in Ohio.
