Watch Clemson Games Live this Season
Clemson has been a part of the ACC since 1953 and they are one of the most winning programs in college football history, having won greater than 60% of all their games since inception.
The Tigers have won over a dozen ACC championships and multiple national titles, earning the national spotlight many times. Because of this ESPN and its family of networks air almost every Tigers home game, while their away games broadcast on NBC, CBS and FOX sports networks; most every Clemson football game makes it on TV one way or another.
Tigers Games on ACC Network, ACCN Extra
ESPN has exclusive rights to ACC football, and given that Clemson is one of the most popular teams in the conference, the main ESPN stations take top billing. But ESPN also owns ACC Network and airs some Tigers games exclusively on this ACC sports channel.
You do need a cable package of some kind to get access to ACCN, whether that's through traditional cable, satellite or one of the many cord-cutting options now on the market. Once you have a plan that includes ACCN, the good news is you get access to ACCN Extra (ACCNE) at no additional cost.
ACCNE is a streaming-only companion for ACC sports, airing games that don't make it to broadcast TV. Most Clemson games will be on regular TV, but for any that don't make it, check ACCNE.
Both networks use WatchESPN to live stream games online, as well as the ESPN app if you are watching from a mobile device or streaming box. Authentication required.
Tigers Games on ESPN, ABC
ESPN has rights to ACC football and likes to air Tigers games on their main ESPN channel, if given the option. Though ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN3 and even ESPNews can also get Clemson games if scheduling conflicts arise.
ESPN also owns ABC and sends some Tigers games to this network instead, which you can watch for free if you have a digital antenna hooked up to your TV. Otherwise ABC comes standard with most all cable packages that include local channels and ESPN and ESPN2 come included in most basic cable packages or above. The other ESPN channels usually require a mid-tier to premium cable plan, depending on the provider. Use the table below to see every plan that offers every channel.
No matter which ESPN-owned channel is airing a Clemson game, all channels stream live on WatchESPN or the ESPN app, even the ABC and ACCN games.

NBC can broadcast a few away games featuring the Tigers throughout the season, depending on the opponent. You can get NBC for free with a digital antenna if you live close enough to the TV signal, usually within 30-60 miles depending on the strength of your antenna. Otherwise NBC is included in most every cable plan that offers local channels.

FOX and Fox Sports 1 (FS1) can air a few Tigers away games over the course of the season as well (that ESPN doesn't have exclusive rights to).
