Live-streaming Texas football: our top picks
Our top picks for watching Texas football are chosen based on our editorial team’s first-hand experience streaming college football on each app.
Hulu + Live TV carries all the channels you need to live stream Texas football, except the Longhorn Network. However, you can access the Longhorn Network with your Hulu + Live TV credentials using the ESPN app.
Hulu + Live TV now offers unlimited DVR and is a good choice for NFL fans as well, with CBS, FOX, NBC, and ESPN for watching Monday Night Football.
Hulu + Live TV integrates the ESPN+ lineup directly into its app, which offers a seamless experience that we enjoy for watching UFC PPV and Fight Nights.
fuboTV carries all the channels you need to watch Longhorns football, except the Longhorn Network. However, you can access the Longhorn Network with your fuboTV credentials using the ESPN app.
Fubo also offers SEC Network in the base package for NCAAF fans in Texas who want to watch the Aggies and Longhorns, and carries the regional sports networks necessary to tune in to Mavs, Rangers, Astros, and Rockets games in-market.
Other than the Longhorn Network, DIRECTV STREAM carries all the channels you need to watch Texas football in 2023, plus some regional sports networks that aren’t available anywhere else, the big one in Texas being Bally Sports Southwest for Rangers, Mavs, and Stars games.
You can access the Longhorn Network with DIRECTV STREAM credentials on the ESPN app.
Again, YouTube TV is missing the Longhorn Network but offers all the other channels you need to stream Texas football in 2023. For example, you can watch Big Noon Kickoff on YouTube TV, and can even stream the marquee game in 4K with an upgrade to 4K Plus.
UT fans can access the Longhorn Network using their YouTube TV login on the Watch ESPN app.
Sling TV Orange + Sports Extra is a good budget option for watching Longhorn Network directly in the Sling TV app, as well as ESPN for streaming Monday Night Football, and ESPNU.
Upgrade to Sling Orange & Blue to get FOX in the Austin market.
Does UT football have the best roster in the country?
Texas football has slowly but surely been stepping up recruiting efforts in seasons past, partly due to one of the strongest NIL programs in the country. The 2023 UT roster will feature former 5-star QB recruit Quinn Ewers as the starter under-center and several other talented players across the offensive line. Former Ohio State coach Urban Meyer has called Texas the most talented team in the nation, which will have expectations sky-high in Austin this season.
