Live stream NCAA college basketball 2022-23

Division I men’s and women’s basketball returns on November 8, 2022. There are a number of streaming options for the games, depending on which conference you want to watch. Here’s how to stream the 2022-23 NCAA basketball season, including top games, players to watch, and more.

Bronny James: The Decision

LeBron James’s oldest son, Bronny James, is entering his senior year of high school, and college basketball programs have been heavily recruiting him all summer long.

 Although not quite the high school phenom that his dad was, Sierra Canyon High School’s 17-year-old point guard was a role player for his first two seasons until becoming a starter last year. He made an impact this summer, though, averaging 16 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 5.3 assists in six Nike Peach Jam games.

Bronny James is currently ranked 38th in the class of 2023, and according to ESPN has received interest from storied programs including Duke, UCLA, USC, Michigan, Ohio State, and Oregon.

UCLA and USC, both in Los Angeles, might have the best chance to land the prospect considering his father’s presence in L.A. LeBron James recently signed a two-year extension with the Lakers.

If you want to see the next generation in action, ESPN recently streamed the AXE European Tour, where Bronny James’s team played squads from the UK, France, and Italy. As Sierra Canyon will be a nationally ranked basketball program, there should be plenty more opportunities to watch Bronny and his teammates throughout the high school basketball season on ESPN.

Best streaming sites for NCAA basketball

Because the broadcasting rights for college basketball are spread across many different channels, if you want to watch every game, you need a comprehensive service that includes all of them. Sling TV Orange, YouTube TV, and Hulu+Live TV are the top cord-cutting services, and all come with a free trial.

This is how each service breaks down in terms of the channels offered:

Sling TV Orange

Price: 35 USD/month

Sling TV is a good all-around option for college basketball live streams as it will carry all games except those on CBS, and is significantly cheaper than the other cord-cutting options. Note that you may need a U.S. credit card or PayPal to subscribe.


Price: 65 USD/month
Channels: CBS, ESPN, TBS, TNT, TruTV

With Hulu+Live TV you’ll be able to live stream just about every NCAA hoops game. Note that you may need a U.S. credit card and ZIP code (e.g., 90210 or 10011) to subscribe.

YouTube TV

Price: 65 USD/month
Channels: CBS, ESPN, TBS, TNT, TruTV

Like Hulu, YouTube TV carries every major network that airs NCAA basketball games, and it offers a five-day free trial. One extra thing YouTube has going for it is that it’s possible to subscribe to YouTube TV via Google Play, even if you don’t have a U.S. credit/debit card.

      Don’t let that get in your way! Simply connect to an ExpressVPN U.S. location, open an incognito browser with cleared cookies, and you’ll be all set to watch!

      Which team are you cheering for? 🙂

    1. Hi Adam,

      It is possible there may be some minor loss of speed when connected to servers that are far from your location. However, ExpressVPN is constantly optimizing server speeds and you can use the speed test function to see which servers are best for your location!
