Our top pick, Fubo, carries WLTX-TV CBS 19 Columbia, ESPN, SEC Network, and FOX affiliates for streaming the Panthers on Sundays. Gamecock fans who want to save some money, should consider pairing Sling Orange + Sports Extra (ESPN, SEC Network) with Paramount+ (CBS) to save close to $500 annually over competitors.

How to watch today’s South Carolina football game
Looking for a specific South Carolina football game? We list the 2023 South Carolina football TV schedule, as well as the live TV streaming services that carry each game, in the easy to use table below.
The most important channels for South Carolina football in 2023
The 2023 SEC football season will be played under the old TV contract. ESPN bought the rights to televise all SEC sporting events, but the agreement doesn’t kick in until 2024, so for this season, and next season, the SEC Game of the Week, featured night games, and the SEC Championship will all be on CBS.
ESPN, ESPN2, and the SEC Network will also broadcast SEC football games, including South Carolina games.

Live streaming South Carolina football in 2023: our top picks
Fubo carries CBS, ESPN live-stream, ESPN2, and SEC Network for fans in the South, all in the base package.
Fubo is fast and easy to setup, comes with 1,000 hours of DVR storage in the base package, and allows sports fans to record an entire team’s season rather than going game by game.
fuboTV is also our top pick for watching the Carolina Panthers, the Atlanta Falcons, and MNF live.
Although we prefer the experience of using fuboTV, we like Hulu + Live TV for streaming college football. You get all the channels you need, including the bonus of SEC Network in the base package.
The ESPN+ and Disney+ bundle brings even more college football to the table, plus out-of-market NHL and MLB. While ESPN+ is integrated seamlessly into the Hulu interface, Disney+ requires a separate login which will be frustrating for the tech-overwhelmed out there.
Although it carries all the channels you need to live stream South Carolina football, DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” is pricier than some competitors for watching SEC games.
However, some sports fans will want to give the platform a try to access DIRECTV STREAM’s extensive library of regional sports networks, which carry regular season MLB, NHL, and NBA games for local fans. For example, DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” carries Bally Sports Carolinas and Bally Sports Southeast, the regional sports networks that carry teams like the Carolina Hurricanes and Atlanta Braves, among others.
With YouTube TV, you can watch SEC Network in the base package, plus all the channels you need to live stream SEC Football and the Gamecocks. YouTube TV is also the new home of NFL Sunday Ticket for 2023, which will be a must-have for NFL fans who want to watch their favorite team after moving away from home.
The best budget options for live streaming Gamecocks football
Paramount+ carries WLTX-19, CBS Columbia, as well as CBS affiliates nationwide. This allows SEC fans to watch the SEC Game of the Week, featured night games, and the SEC Championship game.
Although you can’t get ESPN, ESPN2, and the SEC Network, Paramount+’s NFL on CBS lineup is a fantastic option for AFC fans. In South Carolina, the nearest AFC team is the Titans.
Sling Orange + Sports Extra is missing CBS without taking the step of buying an air antenna, but the platform does offer ESPN, ESPN2, and the SEC Network at a competitive price vs. competing streaming services.
