Watch every college baseball game by seeing all the TV channels airing all the games, and the best streaming packages carrying every channel you'll need.

Cable Providers

Only a few channels will actually air college baseball games during the regular season, and they are all ESPN affiliate channels: ESPN, Longhorn Network, ESPNU, ESPN2, ESPNews, ACC Network and the SEC Network.

If you have cable -- Most cable packages include ESPN and usually ESPN2. Check with your cable provider though if you aren't getting the other channels; most offer an additional sports bundle that shouldn't be too costly a monthly add-on. These providers all include packages for the ESPN network of channels:

  • Cable Providers: Xfinity, U-Verse or Spectrum.
  • Satellite TV Providers: DirecTV or Dish.

Best Streaming Options

If you don't have cable -- Luckily online alternatives now exist to live stream ESPN and it's affiliates, that don't require the need to buy into a whole home cable package:

  • SlingTV. This is perhaps the best option simply because it's the least expensive. TV packages are inexpensive compared to traditional cable and you can typically try it out for free for 7 days. It's a good way to get access to the full ESPN family of channels (except Longhorn Network), plus several other channels for a decent bit cheaper than paying for full on cable.
  • YouTube TV. Similar to Sling, you can get online cable and all ESPN sports channels (again minus Longhorn Network) through Youtube.
  • HuluTV. Another solid option, usually offering a 1-week free trial and no contracts. Includes ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNEWS, ESPNU, and SEC Network. Only missing Longhorn Network.

Whether you go with a cable provider or one of the alternative cable packages, you will also be able to access the WatchESPN app by just logging in with your username and password from the service you chose. So access will be easy to stream no matter which device you use or where you are.
