How to Watch Miami (OH) RedHawks Football Live Without Cable

Written by John O'Connor

Last updated on

You can live stream Miami (Ohio) RedHawks football games from a host of different devices and streaming services. If you are a diehard RedHawks football fan and want to watch every game from one app, Hulu + Live TV, with its ESPN+ bundle, is the best option. However, if you want access to Ohio pro sports teams in addition to the RedHawks, DIRECTV STREAM’s “Ultimate” package is the way to go. Both Hulu and DIRECTV STREAM carry the channels you need to watch the Browns and Bengals.


ABC, CBS, FOX, ESPN, Bally Sports Ohio, CBS Sports Network and more.

How to watch this week’s Miami (OH) football game

Looking for a specific BGSU football game? We list the BGSU football TV schedule, as well as the live TV streaming services that carry each game, in the easy to use table below. Note that the ESPN+ streaming exclusive games are not listed in this table.

Miami (OH) football TV channels

Based on current TV contracts with CBS Sports Network and ESPN, most MAC games, including RedHawks games, will air on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN+, and CBS Sports Network. Early in the season, when Miami (OH) 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, Bally Sports Ohio, and Bally Sports Detroit, the regional sports networks that broadcast local MLBNBA, and NHL action to sports fans in Michigan and Ohio.

Watching Miami (OH) football: our top picks

A lot of kids from my hometown, Birmingham, MI, went to Miami, Ohio. I know that 9/10 Miami (OH) fans follow not only the RedHawks, but also Detroit and Cleveland teams, and Big Ten teams like Ohio State and Michigan. If you also want access to teams like the Detroit Tigers, Guardians, Blue Jackets, and Cavs in addition to Miami, go with DIRECTV STREAM. The Miami games that air on ESPN+ won’t be available with DIRECTV, but it’s simple enough to add an ESPN+ subscription if complete RedHawks football coverage is important to you.

For the diehard Miami (OH) fans, Hulu + Live TV is the clear winner. The platform integrates ESPN+ programming directly into the app, which gives RedHawks fans every Miami football game on one platform. If your sports interests go beyond MAC football, my pick is DIRECTV STREAM for many Ohio sports fans

ESPN+ carries 4 RedHawks football games most seasons.
