Want to get up-to-the-minute sports news and other programming from the ESPN family of channels? You’ll want to know how to stream ESPNews live. (And it’s spelled ESPNews, not ESPN News.)

What is ESPNews?

The network launched in 1996 as, naturally, a news-focused offshoot of ESPN, devoted to sports news and highlights. It’s struggled to hold onto that, though, losing much of its original programming in recent years.

Instead, ESPNews runs encores of ESPN’s debate shows, simulcasts shows from ESPN Radio, and is used as an overflow feed for live sports. But ESPNews is still a pleasant place to kick it, whether that’s to catch Around the Horn, Golic and Wingo, or Jalen and Jacoby, which evolved from the much-missed Grantland to become one of the network’s staples. If you want to stay plugged in to the broader conversation around sports news, ESPNews is as valuable as ever.

Here’s everything you need to know to watch ESPNews online.

Stream ESPNews live: What streaming services carry ESPNews?

The following streaming services make ESPNews part of its overall sports mix.

Hulu Live TV

Hulu Live TV is a great way to stream live TV, as it comes with access to Hulu’s massive library of on-demand content. You’ll be able to choose from movies, shows, and Hulu’s original programming, and keep up with what’s new each month. Hulu plans even include a bundle option where you can access Disney+ and ESPN+ along with Hulu.

Hulu Live TV’s sports coverage includes the full suite of ESPN channels (including ESPN2, ESPNews, ESPNU, and ESPN College Extra), FS1 and FS2), NBSCN, the Olympic Channel, and the Big Ten Network. Hulu’s also got you covered for news and entertainment in its nearly 70-channel package.

Sling TV

If you’re looking for a streamlined, cost-effective streaming package, check out Sling TV. It offers two basic cable packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue, each of which costs $30 per month. There’s also the third option of getting Sling Orange + Blue for just $45 per month. You’ll get more Sling TV channels by choosing Sling Blue, with its 40 channels including sports favorites like FS1 and NBCSN and cable mainstays like Food Network and Discovery Channel. But Sling Orange brings must-haves Disney Channel and ESPN as part of its package.

The Sports Extras package is $15 per month, available with Orange + Blue. It gets you ESPNews as well as MLB Network, NBA TV, NHL Network, and more. Otherwise, you’ll want a Sling Orange package plus a Sports Extra add-on for $10 a month. (ESPN channels live on the Orange side of Sling.)

Orange$30
Blue$30
Orange + Blue$45

FuboTV

FuboTV started as a streaming service geared toward sports fans. It’s since evolved into a broadly-appealing option with entertainment and news options alongside its robust sports choices. It starts at $54.99 a month, and depending on the package, you can access as many as 180+ FuboTV channels. Fubo can entertain you with Bravo, IFC, MTV, and VH1 at even Fubo’s most basic tier.

The Fubo channel list still includes plenty of sports, including the Fubo Sports Network, which has original programming mixing sports and humor. Fubo added the ESPN suite of channels in an agreement that also brought ABC and the Disney Channel. (Meaning, you can stream ESPNews live and still get all that Disney brings for your kids.) Pretty much every sports channel you could think of is available through Fubo, including BeIN Sports, CBS Sports Network, and TUDN.

To get ESPNews, get FuboTV’s Sports Plus with NFL RedZone add-on package for $10.99 per month. It brings you nearly 30 sports channels to stream, including (as the name clearly indicates) NFL RedZone.

AT&T TV Now

If you’re already looking to AT&T for your wireless needs, you might consider AT&T TV Now to cover streaming for you. AT&T TV Now channels start with Plus and Max, which even include HBO. Then, AT&T plans expand from there, approaching cable selection and pricing with AT&T TV Now’s biggest packages. AT&T streaming also comes with Cloud DVR, letting you record up to 20 hours of TV per month.

At its most basic Plus tier, you can find sports staples like ESPN, ESPN2, and FS1. Considering that AT&TV TV Now plans include the loaded Ultimate and Premier tiers, as well as the Spanish-language Optimo Mas package, you can find whatever sports channel you’re seeking in at least one of the AT&T TV Now plans. If you’re looking to stream ESPNews live, start with the Max level.

YouTube TV

The YouTube TV channel list includes local channels and plenty to keep kids (and kids at heart) occupied, including Disney Channel and its companion channels, Nickelodeon, and Cartoon Network—all in one easy-to-access package. It even comes with a few Spanish-language channels like Telemundo and NBC Universo. YouTube add-ons include HBO Max, Showtime, and Starz. YouTube TV packages have some advantages over their competitors, including a generous DVR and multiple screens package. From one account, each user can create an individual profile to track favorite shows.

It’s a great option for sports fans. It comes with ESPN, ESPN2, FS1, FS2, and NBCSN at the ready. Deeper sports cuts, like NBA TV, MLB Network, CBS Sports Network, ESPNews, and ESPNU are also part of the YouTube TV plan.

Vidgo

Vidgo offers a package for under $40 a month that pulls together more than 60 English-language channels into its National English Package. Its channels include ABC, Fox, the ESPN family of channels (including ESPNews and ESPN Deportes), NFL Network, and it’s one of the few streaming services that carries BeIN Sports. But it’s like Fubo in that, even though it started out for streaming sports, it carries a lot more now. There’s even a Social TV platform that allows you to chat with other Vidgo viewers about what you’re watching.

There are also two Latino options featuring ESPN Deportes, Fox Deportes, and TyC sports at both levels. At the Plus level on the English side, you get NFL RedZone and all the Pac-12 Network regional options.
