How to watch
ESPN Networks is currently a placeholder. Specific viewing channels will be designated at a later date. Expect the vast majority to be streamed on ESPN+ or ESPN3.
ESPN+ is a separate, stand-alone streaming service from ESPN3. This streaming-only service is not included in a basic cable subscription or any other ESPN offering. You can subscribe to ESPN+ here. They also offer seven day free trials at any time.
ESPN3 is available with all major cable providers and can be streamed on the ESPN mobile device or online. Access the streaming service here.
CBS SN (Channel Information | DirecTv 221, Dish 158, AT&T Uverse, 643, Xfinity 106). This is not the same as CBS. Depending on your cable provider, it might require a subscription beyond the basic package.
Longhorn Network | Available through the ESPN or WatchESPN streaming, the LHN requires an existing TV subscription to view. FAQ.
The streaming landscape throughout Conference USA seems to change from minute to minute. On the off chance something else comes up, here are a couple of alternative channels the Owls have been featured on in the past.
Stadium will broadcast through Facebook for this year’s game with no tv broadcast component. You can find the Stadium page on Facebook here.
