How To Watch Wisconsin Badgers Basketball Live in 2022


How would you handle an angry badger? That’s what Wisconsin Badgers opponents have to ask every time this team takes to the court, especially since the team ranks among the top 50 all-time wins in Division I basketball programs. The Wisconsin Badgers took home part of the regular season title last year, too, making it their 20th Big Ten title overall.

With Greg Gard at the wheel, the team has seen steadily growing success. Between 2019 and 2020, the team ended up at #17. Last year, the Badgers made it to the quarterfinals, but their journey ended there. This year the team aims to go all the way, and fans are eager to see it happen.

The good news is that you don’t need a cable subscription to follow along on this journey. All you need is a streaming service that airs the right channels; in this case, the Big Ten Network, ESPN2, CBS, and FS1. The games are distributed among these channels throughout the season, so just know when and where to tune in.

Of all available services, Sling TV is one of the best. It strikes a great balance between affordability and channel options, with basic plans starting at just $40 per month. Customers can combine Sling Orange & Blue for $55 per month, and toss in the Sports Extra add-on for an additional $11. That’s just a total of $66 per month for a huge lineup of channels, which is still less expensive than even the next cheapest option.

While there’s no free trial for Sling TV, you can get half off your first month for a limited time. Since there are no contracts required, you can try out the service for half price and see if it’s something you enjoy.
