The Virginia Tech Hokies are a college football team that plays in the ACC Coastal Division. There are several live TV streaming services that carry the channels Hokies fans need to watch Virginia Tech games. In this VA Tech streaming guide, I will break down the best, and cheapest, options for watching the Hokies without cable. If you want every single channel that Hokies games could appear on, DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” with its coverage of local, cable, and regional sports channels is the best option. If you are ok with the potential for some small gaps in coverage, there are cheaper solutions, such as fuboTV, which still offer excellent value. When selecting a streaming service to watch Virginia Tech football, ACC Network is a must. The Hokies appeared on ACC Network six times in 2021.

The most important channels for Hokies fans
The ACC signed a TV deal with ESPN which runs through 2036. Under the terms of that deal, Virginia Tech games will usually appear on one of four channels: ABC, ESPN, ESPN2, and the ACC Network. In the table below, which lists the live TV streaming providers that carry the channels you need to watch VA Tech football, we have also included Virginia’s regional sports networks, MASN and Bally Sports Southeast, the local TV home of the Nationals and Braves. ACC football TV channels are a bit more complicated than some leagues due to the ACC on Regional Sports Networks program which allows for some TV inventory of ACC football games to air on local regional sports networks.

Live streaming Hokies football: our top picks
With ACC Network in the base package, as well as excellent NFL coverage, fuboTV is our top pick for live streaming Hokies games and the Washington Commanders. On the downside, an upgrade to the “Sports Lite” package is required to access ESPNU.
DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” carries all the channels you need to live stream Virginia Tech football games. However, unless you want access to DIRECTV STREAM’s library of regional sports networks, like MASN and Bally Sports Southeast, there are better choices for watching ACC football.
The Hulu + Live TV bundle comes with ESPN+ and Disney+, which is a good value for the price. ACC Network and ESPNU are both included the base package, although an upgrade will be necessary if you want more than 50 hours of DVR storage.
With innovative features like Stats View and Key Plays, as well as an excellent selection of 4K programming, YouTube TV is a solid choice for ACC football fans, including Hokies fans.
Sling Orange is missing ABC, as well as local channels in most markets, but the Orange + Sports Extra package gets you ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, and ACC Network for a good price.
