2023 is UCF’s first season as a member of the Big 12 Conference, which means several games will air on ESPN+. With its ESPN+ bundle featured directly in the app, Hulu + Live TV is the best option for UCF fans who want coverage of the entire season. Fans willing to sign up for ESPN+ a la carte may want to try Fubo to get access to Florida pro sports teams like the Rays, Magic, and Heat. Both Fubo and Hulu + Live TV carry WOFL FOX 35 Orlando for streaming Bucs football games.

The most important channels for UCF football fans

UCF football appears most often on ESPN channels, but games on CBS Sports Network and FS1 are also possible. I’ve included WKMG-TV, Orlando CBS 6, and WOFL FOX 35 Orlando in the channel lineup because these are the channels that will air the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Miami Dolphins most often.

Watching UCF football: our top picks

The platform is lacking ESPN+, so there are holes in coverage, but DIRECTV STREAM “Ultimate” gets UCF fans most games, plus a wide variety of in-market regular season action for teams like the Tampa Bay Rays, Tampa Bay Lightning, Orlando Magic, Miami Heat, Miami Marlins, and more.

With its ESPN+ bundle, Hulu + Live TV carries all the channels you need to live stream UCF football from one app, so if switching between different streaming services is something you want to avoid, Hulu is the play.

Hulu doesn’t have the Florida regional sports networks, but there is an excellent out-of-market NHL lineup, and UFC events can be streamed from the Hulu app.

UCF fans who sign up for Hulu trade full UCF coverage for a lack of Florida pro sports coverage.

Except for ESPN+ games, fuboTV’s “Sports Lite” package gets Golden Knights fans every game of the football season, plus full NFL coverage.

Minus ESPN+ games, YouTube TV gets UFC football fans full coverage of the upcoming season. Pairing YouTube TV with ESPN+ is a combination that allows UFC fans the ability to watch every game, and with YouTube TV’s 4K package, and unlimited DVR, many in Orlando will be tempted to go this route.

New for 2023, YouTube TV is the home of NFL Sunday Ticket.

Sling Orange + Sports Extra gets UFC fans ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, and ESPNU, but ESPN+, and the important NFL channels are missing.
