College baseball is notoriously hard to find complete TV schedules and streaming options for. So I spent some time putting together this guide to make it easy for anyone interested. If you're looking for a list of games happening on any given day, which games are airing on TV or how to stream those games online, this guide includes all that.
Best Schedules for Watching College Baseball Games -
NCAA Baseball Watching Guide. To find all the channels and cable or internet providers covering every single college baseball game, use this guide. Also includes the full college baseball schedule with the most current match ups at the top for easy reference. Every team has it's own individual page as well, if you want to narrow in on just on team.
NCAA Baseball Schedule, TV & Live Streams. Straight to the point and spoiler-free, this resource shows all the college baseball games happening right now and in the near future, and includes dates, times and match ups and streaming links. If you're looking for a site that won't spoil the score for you before you even have a chance to see who's playing, it's worth a bookmark.
Cable Provider Options for College Baseball Games -
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 have a sports channel bundles that shouldn't be too costly a monthly add-on. These providers all include packages for the ESPN network of channels (links show all available plans and costs):
Best Streaming Options for College Baseball Games -
If you don't have cable -- Luckily several online alternatives now exist to live stream ESPN and it's affiliates, that don't require the need to buy in to a whole home cable package:
- SlingTV. This is perhaps the best option simply because it's the least expensive. TV packages start as low as $20/month, and you can 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.
- YoutubeTV. Similar to Sling, you can get online cable and all ESPN sports channels (again minus Longhorn Network) through Youtube. $35/month is more expensive, but you do get many more channels for the money. And you get a month free trial.
- Playstation Vue. If you have a PS4, consider this option as well. It's slightly more expensive than the above 2, but certainly could be worth it for the convenience of an app being built into a system you already use. Starting at $39.99/month with a 5-day free trial, Playstation offers it's own version of a cable package. Would recommend the 'Core' option (for $5 more a month), that gives all the ESPN channels airing college baseball games.
- HuluTV. Another solid option. 1-week free trial and $39.99/month thereafter. 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 package options, 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 guaranteed easy to stream no matter which device you use or where you are.
