Written by John O'Connor

Last updated on

There are several good options for watching Louisville Cardinals football live online in 2022. We chose DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” (Signup for a free trial) as our top pick because it carries all the channels you need to watch ACC football, and is the only platform that carries the regional sports networks that air select Louisville basketball games during the NCAAB season.

With the tradition of the ACC on Regional Sports Networks (RSNs) programming continuing into the 2022 season, Louisville football games may also appear on an RSN this season. DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” is for the fans who want to make 100% sure they will have access to every channel the Cardinals could appear on in 2022. If you are OK with some small gaps in coverage, Hulu + Live TV or fuboTV are better choices.

Live streaming Louisville football: our top picks

DIRECTV STREAM’s “Choice” package carries ABC, ESPN, ESPN2, the ACC Network, and the regional sports networks (RSN) you need to live stream Louisville basketball during the regular season. Four Louisville games each season are carried by a Bally Sports RSN.

DIRECTV STREAM is also a good option for streaming NFL games and gives fans access to the Bengals, Titans, or Falcons depending on location.


The main selling point for Louisville fans with Hulu + Live TV is the platform carries all the channels you need to watch ACC football in the base package. The ESPN+ bundle adds out-of-market MLB and NHL, plus UFC Fight Nights.


fuboTV is a great choice for watching football, both pro and college. The platform does require and upgrade to access ESPNU and doesn’t offer the RSNs you need to watch Louisville hoops and some Louisville football games.


YouTube TV boasts unlimited DVR, 4K upgrades, a mobile only integration with NFL.com fantasy football teams, and all the channels you need to live stream ACC football.


No ABC will be a deal breaker for some, and Sling Orange isn’t a great option for watching the NFL, but at a good price Sling Orange + Sports Extra gets Louisville fans ESPN, ESPN2, and the ACCNetwork.
