Horizon League Tournament Live Stream: Watch Online without Cable

Channel: ESPN3, ESPNU and ESPN (championship game on ESPN)

Live Stream: Sling TV (free 7-day trial) or DIRECTV NOW (free 7-day trial)

It’s March Madness time, but before the action tips off next month, teams have to get there: and several teams in the Horizon League are looking to punch their ticket. Oakland comes in as the number one seed, but Valparaiso (who has arguably been much stronger all year) is right behind them in the two seed. The regular season saw some fierce competition between Horizon League teams, with some incredible head to head matchups and a team or two that just wouldn’t quit (that’s you, Oakland). “Motor City Madness,”as it’s known, will air on ESPN, ESPNU and ESPN3 (click here for a guide to watching ESPN online and here to watch ESPN3 online), but that doesn’t mean you need cable to watch.

There are several ways you can watch the Horizon League online free, if you just know where to look. Here’s your guide to a Motor City Madness live stream.

Live Stream the Horizon League Tournament With Sling TV

Many of the games in the Horizon League Tournament are on ESPN3, so if you want a free Motor City Madness live stream, SlingTV is one of the best ways to go. Haven’t heard of Sling TV yet? It’s just like cable, except all the channels are streaming online. You get dozens of networks (including ESPN and ESPN3) live for just $20 a month.
