We believe Hulu + Live TV is one of the best live TV streaming services for sports because of its winning combo: a strong channel lineup, ESPN+ thrown in, and loads of great on-demand sports documentaries and series.

And it’s super convenient that Hulu’s interface includes ESPN+ content in its library so you don’t have to jump back and forth to see your sports-watching options.

If you want to watch live professional and college sports games, UFC fights, 30 for 30 documentaries, and The Waterboy all in one place, you’ve found it.

Which sports channels does Hulu + Live TV have?

Hulu Live has 14 sports channels that any fan can appreciate, like ESPN, NFL Network, MLB Network, and college channels.

Hulu has such a great lineup that we named this streaming service the fourth best for streaming sports. And guess what’s second best? ESPN+. And you get this service included in your Hulu subscription (more on this below).

So, it’s a two-in-one.

Here’s a list of Hulu Live’s sports channels:

  • ACC Network (ACCN)
  • Big Ten Network (BTN)
  • CBS Sports Network
  • ESPN, ESPN 2
  • ESPNews
  • FOX Sports (FS1), FS2

*RSNs vary by area

  • Golf Channel
  • MLB Network
  • NBC Sports regional sports networks*
  • NFL Network
  • SEC Network
  • T2

Hulu Live also has the TBS, TNT, and truTV channels for MLB and NBA games, wrestling matches, NCAA sports, NHL, and US soccer.

Which sports channels does Hulu + Live TV’s sports add-on have?

Hulu’s sports add-on is only worth it if you want the greatest channel on Earth (NFL RedZone) or Tennis Channel. But this add-on is likely a steal if you’re also a racing or outdoor sports fanatic.

For $10 per month, you can get these six extra sports channels with Hulu Live:

  • Fanduel Racing
  • Fanduel TV
  • NFL RedZone
  • Sportsman Channel
  • Tennis Channel
  • Outdoor Channel

You get ESPN+ with Hulu Live or in a bundle with Hulu

Hulu + Live TV comes with ESPN+ (and Disney+), so you can get double the game coverage for one price.

You won’t get any NBA coverage, but I take advantage of ESPN+ to watch most Monday Night Football games (since I don’t have live TV). And if you also like to watch number fights like me, ESPN+ is a no-hesitation move.

Here are some popular live sports you can watch with ESPN+:

Or, if you want to save money, you can get the Disney+ bundle, which includes ESPN+ and the on-demand version of Hulu, for $15 to $25 per month. Even if you choose not to get the bundle, you can still enjoy 50 exclusive NHL games with Hulu alone.

We like how Hulu gives you many bundle options to suit your wallet and your patience level. But of course, we can all agree that ads are like fouls in basketball—annoying interruptions to the flow of the game.

And we must put a disclaimer that with the $90 plan, regular commercials will still be in your live TV watching, but not in Hulu’s grand on-demand library.

Which on-demand sports content does Hulu have?

Hulu’s on-demand sports library is filled with on-demand shows from sports networks, sports movies, and some content you’d find on ESPN+.

Take a look at this strong lineup:

  • Dodgeball
  • The Waterboy
  • King Richard
  • Ali
  • Friday Night Lights
  • Dark Side of the Ring
  • WWE Monday Night Raw
  • UFC Fight Night
  • The Wrestler
  • The League
  • Welcome to Wrexham

ESPN+ is a whole other ball game.

This sports streaming service is home to 30 for 30 movies, along with some of the best sports documentaries. And their Original series are nothing to pass over.

Here are a few titles you can enjoy after watching your team win (hopefully):

  • Only the Strong Survive
  • Chris Weidman: The Return
  • Shohei Ohtani: Beyond the Dream
  • Jordan Rides the Bus
  • Deion’s Double Play
  • The Minister of Defense
  • The Great Heisman Race of 1997
  • Rodman: For Better or Worse
  • Renée
  • Be Water
  • The Pat McAfee Show

And to add to the on-demand greatness, ESPN+ has close to 75 recent event replays of NCAA sports, golf tournaments, NBA G League, and UFC fights. If you’re anticipating UFC 300, too, there’s a whole section dedicated to getting you pumped for it.
