How to watch Western Michigan football: our top picks

As a kid who grew up in Detroit, I had several friends who went to WMU. Sports fans in Kalamazoo usually follow more than just Broncos football. Our top choices are designed to address all the teams a Broncos fan will want to watch, not just WMU football.

fuboTV “Sports Lite” gets WMU fans all the team’s game minus any that air on ESPN+. Although it is located in the state of Michigan, Kalamazoo sits halfway between Detroit and Chicago. NBC Sports Chicago and the Marquee Sports Network in the base package are an added bonus for the Chicago fans in Kalamazoo.

fuboTV carries local FOX and CBS affiliates for watching the NFL.

The reason to signup for DIRECTV STREAM if you are a WMU football fan is the ability to watch not only the Broncos, but also Bally Sports Detroit, which airs in-market Red Wings, Pistons, and Tigers games. Unfortunately, it takes an upgrade to the expensive “Ultimate” package to get CBS Sports Network on DIRECTV STREAM.

The advantage of Hulu + Live TV for WMU football fans is the ESPN+ bundle, which allows Broncos fans to see the handful of ESPN+ games each season without logging in to a new app. The Hulu channel lineup is tailor made for MAC football, with the only gap in coverage being ESPN3.

Hulu also carries NBC Sports Chicago for watching the Bulls, White Sox, and Blackhawks in-market.

YouTube TV gets Broncos fans every channel they need to live stream WMU football except for the ESPN+ games. Unlimited DVR storage, NBC Sports Chicago in the base package, and a mobile only, real time integration with NFL.com fantasy football teams are all major selling points.
