In this USC football viewing guide, I will break down the best options for live streaming USC football on any device, including iPhone, Roku, Amazon Fire TVs, and Samsung Smart TVs. Fubo’s “Sports Lite” package and Sling TV Orange & Blue + Sports Extra are the only live TV streaming options for watching the entirety of USC’s 2023 campaign, including PAC-12 Network broadcasts. Fubo is our top pick because, unlike SlingTV, the platform offers FOX sports in 4K and KCAL-TV CBS 9 Los Angeles for watching the Chargers.

How to watch today’s USC football game (including free trials)

Looking for the best way to watch a specific USC football game? We list the entire 2023 USC football TV schedule, as well as the live TV streaming services that carry each game in a free trial, in the easy-to-use table below.

The most important channels for USC football fans

USC’s biggest matchups of the season will air nationally on ABC, ESPN, and FOX. Smaller games will be broadcast by the PAC-12 Network, FS1, and even ESPNU, depending on who the opponent is. Next season when USC joins the Big Ten, the channel lineup will change slightly.

USC football player to watch in 2023 – #13

It was easy for the Streaming Stadium editorial team to choose the player to watch for USC football in 2023; it’s the Trojans starting QB Caleb Williams (#13). We all made it a point to watch as many USC football games as possible last season just to watch Williams under center, and his performance against Utah in the PAC-12 championship games was as gritty as they come. Can Williams repeat as the Heisman winner in 2023 and join the ranks of legends like Archie Griffin? Watching to find out makes USC football must-see TV this season.

How to watch USC football on Fubo

As sports fans ourselves, we always focus on complete solutions for readers when crafting viewing guides at Streaming Stadium, which is why the fuboTV “Sports Lite” is the easy choice for Trojans fans in 2023.

The Fubo “Sports Lite” package, with its addition of PAC-12 Network, is the only option for live-streaming every Trojans game this season from one app other than Sling TV Orange & Blue + Sports Extra which added ABC this year in LA.

Fubo also offers complete coverage for USC football next season when they make the move to the Big Ten.

If you’re an MLB, NHL, or NBA fan in SoCal, you can watch most of your local teams with Fubo, except for the Lakers and Dodgers.

fuboTV is also our top pick for watching the defending Super Bowl Champion Los Angeles Rams.

How to watch USC football on DIRECTV STREAM

Yes, you need the PAC-12 Network to watch every USC football game in 2023, and no, DIRECTV STREAM doesn’t offer the PAC-12 Network, even in a sports add-on.

So, why is DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” listed here as our second choice for Trojans fans in this very important season for the program?

Easy, it is still a great option for LA sports fans. USC plays on the PAC-12 Network, but as a national brand, much less than many PAC-12 teams, like Colorado or Oregon State.

Most USC games will air on national TV now that Lincoln Riley is on board and attracting serious talent to LA. DIRECTV STREAM offers all the channels you need to watch USC’s big games, as well as the regional sports networks you need to watch all of the local MLB, NBA, and NHL teams in SoCal. If you’re ok missing some smaller games, and you want to follow teams like the Lakers and Dodgers alongside the Trojans, then DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” may be difficult to pass up.

How to watch USC football on Sling TV

With ABC, FS1, FOX in LA, and PAC-12 Network, Sling Blue + Sports Extra is a good budget option of you’re ok missing some Trojans games that air on ESPN channels, or going to a bar to watch.

By upgrading to Sling TV Orange & Blue + Sports Extra, Trojan fans can get complete coverage of the 2023 season, but be aware that Sling TV has major holes in its channel lineup for watching LA sports. For example, Sling TV doesn’t carry Spectrum Sportsnet LA for watching the Dodgers.

How to watch USC football on Hulu

Hulu + Live TV gets you all of USC’s 2023 football games except PAC-12 Network games, all in the base package.

How to watch USC football on YouTube TV

YouTube TV has built some really cool features for watching football, plus they offer unlimited DVR and generous free trials. You do need a Google account to use the platform, and there is no option for watching PAC-12 Network, so YouTube TV is not a complete solution for Trojans fans this season, even if its a great option for most football fans.

However, you can watch the Rams and Chargers on YouTube TV and the platform is the new home for NFL Sunday Ticket in 2023.
