  • For watching UT basketball and Texas pro sports teams. DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” is the pick if you want to watch every UT basketball game, as well as Dallas and Houston pro sports teams, including NFL games.
  • UT basketball, innovative features, and 4K options. For a more innovative experience, including an extensive 4K lineup, YouTube TV is the best choice.

A note on the longhorn network

UT fan note: you can access the Longhorn Network with “TV Everywhere” on the Watch ESPN app. This requires switching away from the DIRECTV STREAM or YouTube TV app for one game, and streaming the Longhorns on the ESPN app instead. If watching the Longhorn Network lineup is a top priority beyond just UT basketball, Sling TV Orange + Sports Extra carries the channel’s live stream. Personally, rather than signing up for Sling TV, I would recommend using TV Everywhere to access Longhorn Network games. This allows UT fans to sign up for a live TV streaming service that has more comprehensive sports coverage than Sling TV offers.

The most important channels for watching Texas basketball

The most important channels for watching Texas basketball are CBS, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, and the Longhorn Network. When the Longhorns are in the NCAA Tournament, the games will air on CBS, TNT, and TBS.

Watch Texas basketball on DIRECTV STREAM

With DIRECTV STREAM, UT sports fans can watch both Texas basketball and football, and have the option to upgrade to DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” for access to AT&T Sportsnet Southwest and Bally Sports Southwest for watching Astros, Rockets, Mavs, Rangers, and Stars games in-market.

Use your DIRECTV STREAM credentials to sign in to the ESPN app to watch UT basketball games that air on the Longhorn Network.

DIRECTV STREAM carries local FOX and CBS affiliates for watching the Cowboys and Texans.

Watch Texas basketball on YouTube TV

YouTube TV carries all the channels you need to watch Texas basketball, although UT fans will need to switch to the ESPN app to watch games that air on Longhorn Network and login using their YouTube TV credentials.

In addition to the channel lineup, the advantage of YouTube TV is the unlimited DVR, 4K upgrade, and several innovative features built just for spots fans, including Stats View and Key Plays.

YouTube TV carries local FOX and CBS affiliates for watching the Cowboys and Texans.

Watch Texas basketball on Sling TV

Sling Orange + Sports Extra, with its channel lineup of ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, ESPNU, Longhorn Network, TNT, and TBS, provides a good budget option for watching UT regular season hoops, and you can watch Longhorn Network directly on Sling without the need to switch to the Watch ESPN app.

The major issue with Sling TV for college basketball fans is the lack of CBS, which becomes a major problem as March Madness gets underway.
