As of late, CBS Sports Network has carved out a niche in the chaotic world of live sport streaming rights. According to Wikipedia CBS Sports Network broadcast rights include:
- Conference USA college football and basketball
- Mountain West Conference college football and basketball
- Army and Navy football
- Atlantic 10 college basketball
- Division II NCAA Basketball Tournament games (Men and Women)
- College Basketball Invitational
- Arena Football League
- and much more
Over time CBS Sports Network has built up quite an arsenal of live sports broadcasting rights. In this article, I’m going to layout the most affordable ways to live stream CBS Sports Network for those without cable or satellite TV.
How To Stream CBS Sports Network Online
Let’s start with the most affordable.
FuboTV is a live streaming service that focuses on sports streaming while also offering a lot of channels typically found on cable TV. While the service typically runs $34.99, they currently offer the first 2 months for $19.99 and provide a 7-day free trial to test drive the service. If you sign up, the contract is month to month with no commitment.
They provide live streaming access to CBS Sports Network, FS1, FS2, NBA TV, NFL Network, beIN SPORTS, and much more. They even provide local CBS, FOX, and NBC in many markets, along with NBC and Fox Regional Sports networks. Check out my full fuboTV review for more details.
Hulu has been a staple of cord-cutters for some time now. This year they unleashed Hulu Live TV, which provides Live streams of channels one would find on traditional pay TV. The service runs $39.99, but that includes the entire Hulu on-demand library as well.
Channels offered include CBS Sports Network, ESPN, FS1, FS2, Golf Channel and much more. Check out my full review of Hulu Live TV for more information. They also offer a 1-week free trial. If you sign up, the contract is month to month with no commitment.
YouTube TV launched a live TV service available in over 45 U.S. markets. They offer CBS Sports Network along with local broadcast networks, ESPN, FS1, USA, Fox and NBC regional sports networks and much more. Check out my review of where I list all the YouTube TV channels available for more information. They also offer a free trial with no contract when you sign on.
CBS Sports Network is available of PlayStation Vue. However, it’s a part of their “Core Bundle” which runs $44.99 per month. I find that to be a bit on the pricey side. Check out my review of PlayStation Vue for channel information.
DirecTV Now just added CBS Sports Network to their “Go Big” package in September of 2017. Check out all the details in my review of DirecTV Now.
If you subscribe to FuboTV or Hulu Live TV you can get access to the CBS Sports Network app or watch on their website. I for one am happy networks are finally providing app access to customers of streaming services. The CBS Sports Network app was previously available only to customers of Pay TV providers like Verizon Fios, Cox, Optimum and others.
