Hi all, I just called my cable provider to see about adding Pac 12 and ACC to my existing cable packages and it's basically not going to happen.

I'm an ESPN+ subscriber and I'm wondering if you know a hack or a simpler way to watch ACC or Pac-12 bball? I have the Pac 12 app and I get limited free access to games, but I've seen you all mention streaming services and I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions or recommendations?

I'm missing out on Pac 12 and ACC hoops and it's...not great.

THANK YOU for helping this relative luddite out.

ok it sounds like Sling TV is the answer. Are you happy with it? How much do you pay?

What other channels are important for you?

We started out with SlingTV after we first cut cable. But I was much happier with YouTubeTV - the big advantages for me were that local channels were included (not the case with SlingTV and our antenna was very unreliable) and unlimited cloud DVR. I have the ACC network but do not have the PAC 12 network so that wouldn't help you for PAC 12 hoops.

Thank you. Appreciate the feedback.

Yes, I'm looking for Pac 12 and ACC as I already have Big Ten, SEC and ESPN family (ESPNU, ESPN 3, ESPN+ etc).

Tried SlingTV and it's pretty bad. It's cut out two games with a minute left - or in the instance of Stanford vs. Colorado, it cut out and disappeared (i.e. no longer available in the app) after Hollingshed hit the three that I thought won the game for Colorado. Ugh.

Well, it was worth a shot!

I watched the entire game live to the bitter (for Buffs) end on Sling. I wonder why yours cut out?

I have both youtube and sling, but i piggyback on my sister's youtube- it gives 5 (i believe) additional satellite accounts at no charge. I also have espn+.

Those services cover 98% (not official!) of Top 25 WCB games, and many of the rest can be streamed from the team website schedule page.

Maybe it was my Internet. Maybe I'm just being fussy because I wanted Colorado to pull that one out. Very Happy

Thanks for the feedback. The ESPN channels are just not enough for my junkiness - really enjoyed the Pac12 showdowns and I've really missed not having the ACC as much because of this new network.

I'll try Sling for a bit and see how it pans out.
