Watch Kentucky Wildcats Basketball Online

The Kentucky Wildcats have been consistently one of the best teams in the country under John Calipari. Fans can watch Kentucky Wildcats game online all year long, even during the NCAA tournament. Games will be broadcast on ESPN networks and the SEC Networks for most of the year and then will switch to TBS, TNT, CBS, and truTV during March Madness.

All of these channels can be legally live streamed from multiple different sources. Even if you don’t have cable you’ll still be able to watch plenty of Kentucky games the entire season, without having to pay and arm and a leg. Check out the below guide to figure out your ideal setup.


Watch Kentucky Wildcats Basketball Online All Year on DIRECTV NOW

DIRECTV NOW will be a great option to watch Kentucky game online. You can watch during either the regular season or the NCAA Tournament. Several ESPN networks can be streamed directly through the service and a subscription gives you full access to Watch ESPN for even more games.

The ESPN networks are included in the $35 per month starting package, but the SEC Network is not. You can watch a Kentucky Wildcats game live stream on the SEC Network only if you have the $50 per month “Just Right” package. The ESPN channels are included either way as are TBS, TNT, and truTV, which will be helpful during March Madness.

Regardless of which package you choose, you can watch Kentucky Wildcats basketball online free by starting a 7-day free trial. If you want any more information on the service, check out our DIRECTV NOW review.

TBS and TNT are included in both Sling TV (review) packages, but ESPN networks are only on Sling Orange, while truTV (for March Madness games) can only be streamed through Sling Blue. You can always get all of these channels with the Sling Orange + Sling Blue package for $40 per month.

You can watch Kentucky game online on the SEC Network by adding the Sports Extra package to either starting package. It costs $5 more per month and adds more than ten other popular sports channels to your subscription.
