Watch Pittsburgh Panthers basketball live without cable on the device of your choice, including Roku, iPhone, Apple TV, and more.
Pitt basketball and Pitt football play in the ACC, which means games air on lots of ESPN-owned channels due to the long-term TV deal the ACC signed with Disney. Our top pick for watching Pitt hoops, fuboTV, carries ACC Network, AT&T Sportsnet Pittsburgh, CBS, ESPN, and ESPN2 in the base package. Unfortunately, Sling lacks KDKA-TV CBS 2 Pittsburgh for watching the Steelers, but the channel can be accessed with Paramount+, or fuboTV, YouTube TV, DIRECTV STREAM, or Hulu.
How to watch tonight’s Pitt basketball game live
In the easy-to-use table below, which is updated with new data every evening, we list the upcoming Pitt basketball TV schedule, as well as the live TV streaming services that carry the games.
The most important channels for watching Pitt basketball
As I mentioned earlier in this Pitt men’s basketball viewing guide, the ACC has a TV deal with ESPN that runs through 2036. This means the bulk of Pitt games will be broadcast by the ESPN family of sports channels; ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, as well as ACC Network and ACC Network Extra.
How to watch Pitt basketball on Sling TV
I list Sling Orange + Sports Extra as my top pick for several ACC basketball teams in large measure due to the price.
Although Sling TV lacks CBS without an air antenna, Pitt fans can save over $500 per year with Sling Orange versus many competing services. To get KDKA-TV CBS 2 Pittsburgh, it’s easy to add Paramount+ (as a separate app).
Sling Orange + Sports Extra carries:
- ACC Network
- ACC Network Extra
For Pitt football fans, fuboTV is a better option.
How to watch Pitt basketball on fuboTV
If watching both Pitt football and basketball is a top priority, fuboTV wins out over Sling Orange despite the increased price. Sling lacks ABC and CBS, as well as FOX and NBC in the Pittsburgh market. There are simply too many holes in college football coverage on Sling to recommend for Pitt fans, and fuboTV carries all the channels you need to live-stream Pitt basketball, except ACC Network Extra.
How to watch Pitt basketball on YouTube TV
YouTube TV carries all the channels you need to watch Pitt basketball except the regional sports networks for ACC on RSN games. YouTube TV is a complete solution for Pitt football as well and carries KDKA-TV CBS 2 Pittsburgh for Steelers action on Sundays.
How to watch Pitt basketball on Hulu + Live TV
How to watch Pitt basketball on DIRECTV STREAM
DIRECTV STREAM carries all the channels you need to watch Pitt basketball except ACC Network Extra access. As another service that carries AT&T Sportsnet Pittsburgh, you can also watch the Penguins and Pirates in-market on DIRECTV STREAM by upgrading to the “Choice” plan, and DIRECTV STREAM is also very NFL friendly with its channel lineup.
