The Maine Black Bears drew the short straw for NCAA’s basketball opening night and will visit the heavily favored Virginia Tech Hokies. It would be a major upset if VA Tech were to fall in this season opener.
Maine and Virginia Tech are scheduled to get their men’s basketball game started tonight at 8 pm ET / 5 pm PT. The game will not be found on a traditional TV channel or on a cable network. You will need to stream it online, and the only way to do so is with an ESPN+ subscription.
With an ESPN Plus account you can not only watch the Maine and VT basketball game, but countless other college basketball games throughout the 2021-22 season. Plus there are tons of other sports and original series, including every 30-for-30 documentary, ready to stream when you want to watch them.
The cost of ESPN+ is currently only $6.99 a month or $69.99 for an entire year, so it is one of the cheapest standalone streaming services available.
ESPN+ Disney+ Hulu Bundle
A $13.99 a month bundle option including Disney+, ESPN+ and the ad-supported version of Hulu is another option to consider. This deal dubbed “Get All Three” is a fantastic bargain that is already being enjoyed by millions of subscribers.
Disney is also now offering a $19.99 a month bundle option that includes the ad-free version of Hulu.
If you already have a Hulu account then you will receive a bill credit for each month that you’re subscribed to the bundle deal.
Look for the ESPN+ app to show up on a variety of devices including Xbox and PlayStation gaming consoles; LG, Samsung and Sony TVs, Roku boxes, Chromecast, iPhone or iPad, and Amazon Fire TV boxes and Fire Sticks.
