The cheapest streaming service that includes every channel that will have a Michigan football game is Hulu With Live TV. For more info about Hulu With Live TV and other live stream options, read on below.


In Jim Harbaugh’s fifth season, Michigan has high hopes, looking to head into uncharted territory with a strong crop of returning talent and Big 10 rival Ohio State going through a huge degree of change.

In 2019, Michigan football games will be televised on either Big Ten Network, Fox, Fox Sports 1, ABC, ESPN or ESPN2. If you don’t have cable, you can watch UM games live on your computer, phone, Roku, Fire TV Stick, Xbox One, PS4 or other streaming device via one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services:

Hulu With Live TV

Michigan Football Channels Included: Big Ten Network, Fox, Fox Sports 1, ABC, ESPN, ESPN2 (ABC and Fox are live in select markets)

Price: $44.99 per month

Not only is this the cheapest streaming service that includes every channel that will have a Michigan football game this season, but Hulu With Live TV also comes with Hulu’s extensive Netflix-like on-demand library of TV shows and movies.

You can sign up for Hulu with Live TV right here, and you can then watch Michigan games live on your computer via the Hulu website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Echo Show, or other streaming device via the Hulu app.

If ABC is not available in your market, you can also watch ABC games via ESPN.com or the ESPN app without having to sign in to a cable provider as long as you have a participating Internet Service Provider (ISP).

If you can’t watch a game live, Hulu With Live TV comes with 50 hours of cloud DVR space, as well as the option to upgrade to “Enhanced Cloud DVR,” which gives you 200 hours of space and the ability to fast-forward through commercials.

FuboTV

Michigan Football Channels Included: Big Ten Network, Big Ten alternate channels, Fox, Fox Sports 1 (Fox is live in select markets)

Price: $54.99 per month

The ESPN channels aren’t included, but if you can find a different way to watch those games (there are only a couple on the schedule), FuboTV is a great option, as it comes with 100-plus channels in the main bundle, includes the Big Ten alternate channels, has some games on Fox and FS1 in 4K and is largely tailored towards sports.

You can start a free seven-day trial of FuboTV right here, and you can then watch Michigan football games live on your computer via the FuboTV website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, or other supported device via the FuboTV app.

If you can’t watch a game live, FuboTV comes included with 30 hours of cloud DVR space, as well as a 72-hour look-back feature, which will allow you to watch games on-demand within three days of their conclusion, even if you don’t record them.

YouTube TV

Michigan 2019 Preview

Michigan finished 10-3 a year ago, but the big question that remains for the Wolverines: is this the year they get by Ohio State? The Buckeyes have won 16 of the last 18 matchups, including the last seven straight against their Big 10 rival.

Michigan opened the season as the No. 7 ranked team in the AP Top 25 Poll, two spots back of the Buckeyes, who are working in both a new head coach and quarterback. Harbaugh feels like this could be the year they overcome the hurdle.

“We’ve played a lot of young guys through the years,” Harbaugh said. “I think our first year we played 11 or 12 freshmen and the next year it was like 17. In our fourth year, we played three. So the reinforcements have come. The team is in a really good place right now. You want to make it tighter. You want to make it better. You’ve got a good tight grip on it and now you want to squeeze it and make it better.”

The Wolverines brought in offensive coordinator Josh Gattis and his spread offense in the offseason, a solid fit for returning quarterback Shea Patterson. Last season, Patterson passed for 2,600 yards, 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

“I do see him doing a lot of Shea things in practice,” Michigan offensive lineman Cesar Ruiz told reporters. “I think you guys should know what that means, doing a lot of Shea things. We’ve seen him do it previously when he first got into college. I see him more comfortable doing what he does out there in our new offense. He’s in his own category, really. Shea things is just him being able to turn a play from nothing into something. Just seeing him do great and mindblowing things like that.”

Former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer recently threw a little fuel on the fire in the rivalry, saying he’s unsure this is the year the Wolverines get the best of the Buckeyes.

“They certainly have the players,” Meyer said on Fox Sports. “They have some of the best unknown players in America. The three receivers they have are all NFL draft picks. Donovan Peoples-Jones is a leader. I recruited Jones, and he’s an incredible player, incredible person, great punt returner. The question is: Are they really going to be able to transition to a spread offense fast enough not to lose a game?”

Michigan opens its season on Aug. 31 against Middle Tennessee. The Wolverines and Buckeyes face off on Nov. 30.

The College Football Playoff semifinals are set for Dec. 28. One semifinal is the Peach Bowl from Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The other semifinal is the Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Arizona.

The national championship will be played on Jan. 13, 2020 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
