How to Watch Memphis Tigers Football Live Without Cable

Written by John O'Connor

Last updated on

The Memphis Tigers football team plays in the AAC Conference, a league that has a TV deal with ESPN. As such, most of Memphis football games air on an ESPN channel, often ESPNU. Hulu + Live TV is the only option for live streaming every Memphis football game from one app, as the platform carries ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, and ESPN+ as part of a bundle with Disney+. However, our top pick for watching Memphis football this season is a combination of Sling Orange + Sports Extra and ESPN+. Combining these two platforms saves Tigers fans over $200 per year versus Hulu.

How to watch this week’s Memphis football game

Looking for a specific Memphis football game? We list the upcoming Memphis football TV schedule, as well as the live TV streaming services that carry each game, in the easy to use table below. Note: as streaming exclusive games, Memphis ESPN+ games will not appear here.

Important channels for Memphis football fans

Most Memphis football games air on an ESPN property, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, and ESPN+. If you also want to stream the Memphis Grizzlies along with Memphis football, DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” is the only live TV streaming service that carries the Bally Sports regional sports networks which broadcast most Grizzlies regular season games. Memphis football will also usually appear on CBS Sports Network once or twice a season.

Watching Memphis football: our top picks

I am recommending a rare streaming combo for Memphis football fans who want to save some money this season. The cheapest way to stream Memphis football is by subscribing to Sling TV Orange + Sports Extra, which gets you ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, and ESPN3, and the pairing it with ESPN+ for the handful of Tigers games that air on ESPN+ each season. This combo saves about $200 over Hulu + Live TV.

The drawback with Sling TV is you can’t watch the Tennessee Titans and NFL games without an air antenna. If you don’t mind a third app, add Paramount+ for WREG-TV, CBS Memphis 3, or just go with Hulu.

Get the Memphis games that air on ESPN+, plus out-of-market NHL and UFC action.

Get WREG-TV, Memphis CBS 3, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, FOX, NBC, ABC, FS1, and more.

fuboTV doesn’t carry ESPN+.

It’s more expensive than the combo I recommended above, but Hulu + Live TV’s ESPN+ bundle gets you all the Memphis football channels in one app, as well as WREG-TV for Titans games.

Except for ESPN+, DIRECTV STREAM “Ultra” gets you the channels you need to watch Memphis football, plus the Memphis Grizzlies in-market.

Except for the ESPN+ games, every other Memphis football game will stream live on YouTube TV.
