Watching Toledo football: our top picks

In years past, Toledo games against Massachusetts have appeared on Flo Sports, and the Notre Dame game aired on Peacock, making it hard to get every Toledo game from one app. Although there may be holes in coverage a couple times a season, Toledo fans can get most Rockets games on DIRECTV STREAM, plus the Tigers, Red Wings, and Pistons on Bally Sports Detroit. Adding an ESPN+ subscription will get access to NHL.TV out-of-market hockey broadcasts, UFC Fight Nights, and additional MAC football broadcasts, including Toledo games.

Households in Toledo are often divided between Ohio State and Michigan, and the good news for NCAAF fans in northern Ohio is that both teams can be live streamed from the DIRECTV STREAM app.

Depending on location and regional broadcast rules, NFL fans in Toledo can watch the Lions, Bengals, and Browns on DIRECTV STREAM.


Although you can’t get Bally Sports Detroit on Hulu, with the ESPN+ bundle, you can live stream more Toledo football games on Hulu than on DIRECTV STREAM. Depending on location and regional broadcast rules, NFL fans in Toledo can watch the Lions, Bengals, and Browns on Hulu + Live TV.


Watch a handful of Toledo football games on ESPN+ every season.
