The best options for watching Spartan basketball from Michigan

If you live in Detroit, chances are you want to follow the Lions, Pistons, Wings, and Tigers in addition to the Michigan State basketball team. If this sounds like you, DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” is the best option.

DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” is the only streaming service that combines Bally Sports Detroit, for watching in-market NBA, MLB, and NHL action in Detroit, with all the channels you need to watch the Spartan basketball and football teams.

Outside of Michigan

Outside of Michigan, sports fans can’t access Bally Sports Detroit. However, if watching in-market MLB, NBA, and NHL action is still a priority, check our regional sports network page to see which streaming services carry your local sports station.

For Michigan State fans outside of Detroit, our top pick is Hulu + Live TV.

With Hulu + Live TV, MSU fans can watch the Spartans on CBS, ESPN, ESPN2, FS1, FS2, and Big Ten Network.

As an added bonus, Hulu + Live TV carries NHL.TV out-of-market NHL games, UFC Fight Nights, and has even started airing some Monday Night Football broadcasts.
