The Utah Utes are currently ranked as the 13th best team in the country by the Coaches and AP Poll. They are also only behind Oregon in the Pac-12 Conference and are looking to make a strong run in the conference tournament. If they can finish the season strong, the Utes will make a strong play at getting better than a 4 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
Last season, the Utes were a 5-seed in the tournament and made it to the Sweet Sixteen. Utah fans are surely hoping they make it even farther this year and if you are a fan without cable you won’t want to miss any of the action. In fact, you now have tons of options to watch Utah basketball online or live streaming on your TV without cable. Read on to find all of the information you will need.
A Sling TV Subscription lets you Watch Utah Basketball Online
Sling TV, the subscription streaming service offered by Dish, will be your best option to watch Utah basketball online. Not only is it a fraction of the cost of a cable package, only $20 per month, but it also includes more than 20 popular cable channels. Some of these channels like ESPN, ESPN2, TNT, truTV, TBS, and ESPN3 (Via WatchESPN with a Sling TV login) will let you easily live stream tons of college basketball games.
TBS, truTV (only included in the basic package during March Madness), and TNT will let you watch almost half of the March Madness games live. You can learn more about that in our March Madness guide.
The ESPN channels will be ideal for regular season or tournament games and will probably be the best option to watch a Utah basketball live stream all season long. You can watch Sling TV on your phone, tablet, computer, or through a Roku or Amazon Fire TV. You can even watch Utah basketball online free with Sling TV during the 7-day free trial currently being offered.
Overall, the best reason to sign up for Sling TV (review) now is the limited-time offer you receive when you subscribe for three months. In return, you get to choose between 50% off a Roku 3 or a free Roku 2. The devices will let you live stream Sling TV right on your big screen. The Roku 2 even retails at $69.99, which is more expensive than subscribing to three months of Sling TV ($60). So, this deal gives you the Roku 2 for $10 off alongside three months of Sling TV as an added bonus.
Stream More than 18,000 Sporting Events with College Sports Live
CBS’s College Sports Live is another option that may let you watch a Utah basketball live stream. The service broadcasts over 18,000 live college sporting events in either audio or video streams. Normally, the basketball and football streams are in audio version, but it is still worth checking out on the programming schedule on the site. College Sports Live can either be subscribed to monthly for $9.95 per month or annually for $99.95 per year. To learn more head over to our detailed review on College Sports Live.
Watch ESPN3 Online or on Your XBOX
ESPN has agreements with a broad list of internet service providers that let you live stream ESPN3 free on the WatchESPN site. Check out the full list here. You can sign into WatchESPN for free and watch a Utah basketball live stream either on your computer or on your XBOX with an XBOX Live Gold Membership. The other channels normally included in WatchESPN are not available, but there are still tons of live sports on ESPN3 and it is completely free.
Pair a DVR and Antenna and Watch Utah Basketball Live Stream on your TV
An antenna picks up channels from over-the-air networks like CBS, FOX, ABC, and NBC. If you have an antenna you can then watch these channels on your TV. The Mohu Leaf 50 is our recommended option since it has an impressive 50-mile reception range. This is an incredibly easy and affordable way to watch tons of college basketball live, especially during March Madness. Last season, CBS broadcast 22 of the 67 games during the tournament.
If you want to take the antenna a step further you can also use an over-the-air DVR. These devices, the Tablo is our favorite example, bring all of the traditional DVR features (pause, record, rewind, etc…) to watching TV over an antenna. Plus, the Tablo even lets you watch your recordings or live TV on your phone, tablet, or computer. So, you can get this setup and watch a Utah basketball live stream anywhere you can get an internet connection.
A PlayStation Vue Subscription gives you Over 60 Cable Channels
Sony launched a competing streaming service in 2015, PlayStation Vue. This will be another option to watch Utah basketball online, since the introductory package includes channels like TBS, TNT, FOX, ESPN, and ESPN2. All of these channels broadcast games during the regular season and TBS and TNT will broadcast a large amount of March Madness games. PlayStation Vue starts at $39.99 per month and has more expensive packages with additional channels.
Like Sling TV, you can watch PlayStation Vue with multiple devices like iPads, PlayStation Consoles, Chromecast, or Amazon Fire TV. The real difference is PlayStation Vue is not actually available in many places. Currently, you can only subscribe in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, Dallas, Miami, and Philadelphia. Thankfully, if you don’t live in one of these areas you still have tons of options to watch Utah basketball online. But, if you are from one of the above cities you should read our full review on PlayStation Vue to learn more.
You may be impressed at how easy it is to watch Utah basketball online without a cable subscription. If you want to learn even more about watching college basketball without forking over all that money for cable, check out our full college basketball guide.
