On March 6th, the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament will start and the ACC is normally one of the most competitive conferences in college basketball. This season is no different as the top four teams in the ACC are all nationally ranked in the top 25. Last season, Duke went on a run as the 5 seed in the tournament beating UNC and Notre Dame on their way to an ACC championship. It will likely be another great tournament as the top teams are all within a few games of each other at the moment. It’s now possible to watch the ACC tournament live stream online – keep reading for more info.
Thankfully, fans of teams in the ACC can now easily watch the ACC tournament online even if they do not have a cable package. Sling TV will be your best option to watch, since the entire tournament will be broadcast on the ESPN family of networks. Read on to learn more about your options.
Sling TV – The Best Option to Watch an ACC Tournament Live Stream
In 2015, Sling TV was launched as a strong alternative to a cable package for only a fraction of the cost. It gained popularity quickly, because not only can you watch some of your favorite TV shows on Sling TV but you can easily watch tons of live sports. It certainly will let you easily watch an ACC tournament live stream and will also be great during March Madness.
The basic package on Sling TV (review) includes more than 20 popular cable channels. This means you don’t have to pay the expensive cable bill for tons and tons of channels you never use. Instead you get channels like TBS, TNT, ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPN3 (Via WatchESPN with a Sling TV login). The entire ACC tournament will be broadcast on the ESPN family of networks and the final game will be on ESPN.
If you want to get even more access to ESPN channels you can choose the Sports Extra add-on package. It costs only $5 extra per month and includes channels like ESPNU, ESPNews, ESPN Goal Line, and SEC Network. Check the ACC tournament schedule to see exactly which ESPN channels each game will be broadcasting on.
Sling TV starts at $20 per month, which is a great deal to watch the ACC tournament streaming and tons of other live sporting events. And, since the subscription is on a monthly basis you can cancel whenever you would like. With the basic package and the additional add-on package you can watch the ACC tournament streaming through its entirety for only $25 per month.
Sling TV works with just about all major devices and can easily be live streamed on your phone, tablet, or computer. Plus, with a device like Roku, Amazon Fire TV, or Chromecast you can watch an ACC tournament live stream right on your TV.
You can even watch the ACC tournament online free for a week with Sling TV’s free 7-day trial.
If you are interested in subscribing to Sling TV you can get a free Roku 2 or 50% off a Roku 3 with a three-month subscription. The Roku 2 actually retails at $69.99 normally, so you are actually getting it for $10 off and then Sling TV on top. Websites like CNET say the Roku 2 is actually a better overall value, since it is equally as quick as the Roku 3, but a lower price.
