How to watch Notre Dame Fighting Irish football on YouTube TV
Offering all the Fighting Irish channels along with an endless amount of cloud DVR is enough to make you sign up for YouTube TV. The platform’s single package costs $64.99/mo. and comes with more than 85 channels, including NFL Network, which tends to cost more to access elsewhere. When it comes to recording games and other sports content, you have total freedom. Record as much as you want when you want, but remember that recordings will only be kept for a maximum of 9 months.
YouTube TV also has another generous feature: a 2-week free trial. So grab your compatible streaming device (which can be anything from a PlayStation 4 to a classic smart TV) and sign up to see if the interface works for you.
How to watch Notre Dame Fighting Irish football on Sling TV
Although many opt for one of Sling TV’s cheaper packages, it makes sense to shell out a little more for the combined Orange + Blue plan if you want to view the Fighting Irish. Why? Because while the Orange package ($35/mo.) has ESPN, the Blue plan ($35/mo.) is the only way to access FOX, FOX Sports 1, NBC, and USA Network. (Note that FOX and NBC Notre Dame football games are only available on-demand.)
The combined package costs $50/mo. and if you pay $15/mo. for the Sports Extra add-on, you’ll be able to watch ACC Network games, too. Plus, you’ll receive 4 simultaneous streams — the highest number that Sling TV offers. At 10 hours, the DVR limit may be a little on the measly side. But an extra $5/mo. investment will boost the total to a more palatable 50 hours. There’s no free trial to see whether Sling TV is the right service for you. But the platform does give new users $10 off their first month.
How to watch Notre Dame Fighting Irish football on AT&T TV
To access every way to watch the Notre Dame Fighting Irish football games, you’ll need to pay for AT&T TV’s Choice package. Costing $84.99/mo., it offers 90+ networks, including regional sports networks, the 2020-21 NBA League Pass Premium, and a year of HBO Max. When it comes to sports content, you can also expect the likes of ESPNU and TNT to feature in the channel line-up. Of course, if you want even more TV choice, you can opt for AT&T TV’s $94.99/mo. Ultimate package or the $129.99/mo. Premier plan. The Ultimate comes with 130+ channels, while the Premier has 140+ in total.
No matter which plan you choose, you’ll receive only 20 hours of DVR storage. But an extra $10/mo. will get you 500 hours. You have a choice of streaming devices, too. Use any model from the usual list, including Apple, Android, and Roku devices, or pay for AT&T TV’s very own device. It offers access to thousands of apps and can be controlled with your voice.
