Watch Michigan basketball on DIRECTV STREAM

As a kid who grew up in the Detroit area, I know that most Michigan basketball fans will also want to tune in to their local pro sports teams as well as the action from Crisler Arena.

The advantage of upgrading to DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” is the ability to watch every Michigan basketball and football game, as well as the Lions, Tigers, Pistons, and Red Wings in-market.

The downside with DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” is the cost. If you’re not interested in NBA, NHL, or MLB games, a platform like Hulu or YouTube TV offers better value.

Watch Michigan basketball on Hulu

Hulu + Live TV offers all the channels you need to watch Michigan basketball in the base package, including Big Ten Network.

Although Hulu doesn’t offer Bally Sports Detroit, the service does include NHL.TV for live streaming over 1,000 out-of-market NHL games every season. If you are diehard Michigan and Red Wings fan who moved out of state, Hulu + Live TV is the perfect choice for watching Michigan basketball all the way through March Madness, plus the NHL regular season and playoffs.

Watch Michigan basketball on YouTube TV

With unlimited DVR, a great 4K upgrade, and all the channels that carry Michigan basketball and football, YouTube TV is an excellent choice for watching UM hoops, especially for fans outside of the state of Michigan. It is also possible to add an NBA League Pass subscription on to a YouTube TV account for out-of-market Michigan fans who also want to watch the Pistons.

Watch Michigan basketball on fuboTV

fuboTV carries all the channels you need to watch the UM regular season, but lacks TBS and TNT, which will leave holes in coverage for the NCAA Tournament.

Watch Michigan basketball on Sling TV

You can watch most Michigan basketball games on Sling TV with the Orange & Blue + Sports Extra package, and the platform carries FOX 5 Detroit.

However, the drawback with Sling TV is the lack of CBS without adding an air antenna. Without CBS, Michigan fans will miss NCAA Tournament coverage, as well as major NFL games week to week, including the playoffs.
