The 2023 NCAA women’s DI volleyball tournament National Semifinals is on Thursday, December 14th, with both games streaming live on ESPN+. Games will simultaneously air on ESPN as well. The National Championship Match is on Sunday, December 17th, and will stream live on ESPN+.
I recommend ESPN+ if you plan on watching the entire tournament. A subscription costs $10.99 per month, but you can cancel at any time. If you want to watch a single match, you can take advancing of free trials from streaming services with ESPN, ESPN2, or ESPNU like the following.
Check the schedule below to see which channel is airing the match you want to see, and you can use the free trial to watch. Just be sure to cancel before the trial ends so you won’t be charged, as both services auto-renew each month until you cancel.
