Hulu + Live TV, with its ESPN+ bundle, is the only live TV streaming service that carries all Bobcats games from one platform. If you want access to the regional sports networks that carry local NBA, MLB, and NHL games, as well as Ohio football, DIRECTV STREAM is the best choice. If you live in Ohio, and some surrounding regions, you can watch the Browns and the Bengals from both Hulu and DIRECTV STREAM.
Ohio Bobcats football TV channels
Based on current TV contracts with CBS Sports Network and ESPN, most MAC games, including Ohio Bobcats games, will air on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN+, and CBS Sports Network. Early in the season, when Ohio faces an ACC, SEC, Big 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 MLB, NBA, and NHL action to sports fans in Michigan and Ohio.

Watching Ohio football: our top picks
Ohio football appears several times each season on ESPN+, and Hulu integrates ESPN+ programming directly into its channel lineup. If your goal is to watch every Ohio football game, Hulu + Live TV is the best option. As an added bonus, Hulu subscribers can watch the NFL, including Bengals and Browns games. The downside with Hulu is the base package only comes with 50 hours of DVR storage.
If some holes in coverage are ok, and you want access to Bally Sports Ohio and Great Lakes, then DIRECTV STREAM is the right choice. For example, DIRECTV STREAM subscribers can live stream the Guardians regular season in-market on Bally Sports Great Lakes with DIRECTV STREAM.
Ohio Bobcats fans can watch about 4 games each season just by subscribing to ESPN+.
