The 2023 Big 12 Conference football season officially kicks off on September 16. Wondering how you can tune in if you’ve already cut the cord?
The Big 12 Conference will be airing on FOX and ESPN channels — this means you’ll be able to watch on Sling TV, fubo, Hulu + Live TV, DirecTV Stream, YouTube TV, and ESPN+. In this guide, we’ll give you the brief lowdown on each one so you can find the one that suits you best.
Watch Big 12 Conference on DirecTV Stream
DirecTV Stream is a pricier option, but is one of the best streaming services out there if you’re looking for an overall cable replacement. If you want to catch most Big 12 games this NCAA season, all you need is the cheapest “Entertainment” package. This plan has 75+ channels including NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX, Fox Sports, and ESPN, among many others.

Watch Big 12 Conference on Sling TV
If you’re a price-conscious viewer, Sling TV is an affordable way to watch the Big 12 Conference without cable. Our suggestion is to opt for the Sling Blue + Orange package, which will give you both Fox Sports and ESPN channels. You won’t get ABC and FOX, but you can easily get the channels and a full viewing experience by adding on an OTA antenna.
Watch Big 12 Conference on Fubo
Big sports fan? Fubo was made for you. If you want a comprehensive watching experience for the Big 12 Conference, nothing beats Fubo. You’ll get pretty much all the channels you need to watch Big 12 Conference live without cable, including ESPN and Fox Sports, ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS, and over 100+ other channels.
Watch Big 12 Conference on Hulu + Live TV
If you want a great streaming service that also lets you watch the best nationally-televised NCAA football games, Hulu + Live TV’s your best option. The only subscription package it offers gives you access to watch ESPN, Fox Sports, ABC, FOX, and 90+ other channels.

Watch Big 12 Conference on ESPN+
It comes as no surprise to anyone that ESPN+ is the exclusive home to some Big 12 matches this year. But here’s the thing: ESPN+ usually broadcasts one to two games per week, so it’s not an absolute must for catching Big 12 Conference games. That said, at its relatively low monthly subscription fee, it’s hard to pass up on, especially if you’re a big football fan and if you know that your teams’ games will be airing on ESPN+.
