How to Watch NC State Basketball Live Online

Written by Streaming Stadium

Last updated on

College basketball fans in the southeast, and across the country, can watch most NC State Wolfpack men’s basketball games live online with Sling Orange + Sports Extra, YouTube TV, Hulu + Live TV, fuboTV, or DIRECTV STREAM.


In this NC State Wolfpack viewing guide, I will walk fans through the best options for watching NC State basketball all season. The challenge for ACC basketball fans looking for complete coverage of their team’s season is that the streaming services that carry regional sports networks that feature ACC on RSN games don’t offer ACC Network Extra access. This means gaps in coverage. Even though the platform lacks WNCN-TV CBS 17 Raleigh, our top pick for watching NC State basketball is Sling TV Orange + Sports Extra because of the attractive price point. To get access to CBS, pair Sling Orange with Paramount+.

Watch tonight’s NC State basketball game live

In the easy to use table below, we list the upcoming NC State men’s basketball TV schedule, as well as the live TV streaming services that carry each game.

The most important channels for NC State basketball fans

The ACC TV rights are locked up with ESPN owned properties for many years to come, which makes watching Wolfpack basketball predictable. As a general rule, NC State basketball and NC State football games will air on ABC, ACC Network, ESPN, or ESPN2. NC State hoops will also sometimes appear on ACC Network Extra as a digital-only game. In a confusing twist, Wolfpack hoops will also be carried a handful of times each season by local regional sports networks.

How to watch NC State basketball with Sling TV

In a world of increasingly expensive streaming services, Sling TV Orange remains a relatively good deal, and is an excellent option for NC State basketball fans. The only channel lacking is CBS and it’s easy to add Paramount+ (as a separate app) to get access to CBS affiliates nationwide, which is also a bonus for watching live NFL games.

How to watch NC State basketball with YouTube TV

YouTube TV is a good option for Wolfpack basketball and football fans as the platform carries CBS, ACC Network, and ESPN, and fans have the option to access ACC Network Extra through the ESPN app. YouTube TV lacks most of the regional sports networks that carry ACC on RSN games.

How to watch NC State basketball with fuboTV

Although you can’t use your fuboTV credentials to login to the ESPN app to access ACC Network Extra, fuboTV covers all the other NC State basketball bases, including a slate of regional sports networks for catching the ACC on RSN games. MLB fans can watch the Braves on Bally Sports Southeast with fuboTV.

How to watch NC State basketball with Hulu + Live TV

Hulu + Live TV carries all the channels NCAAB fans need to watch ACC hoops, including complete coverage of the Wolfpack. The one drawback with Hulu + Live TV for watching NC State basketball is the lack of the regional sports networks that carry ACC on RSN games, which confuses a lot of fans.

How to watch NC State basketball on DIRECTV STREAM

In addition to ACC Network, CBS, and ESPN, DIRECTV STREAM offers the important regional sports networks for the ACC on RSN games, but lacks ACC Network Extra. As an added bonus, NBA fans in Raleigh can watch the Hornets on DIRECTV STREAM “Choice.”
