The University of Indiana basketball team can make a compelling case for being one of the top programs in the country. The last team to go undefeated and win an NCAA Championship was the 1976 Hoosiers. IU basketball teams have won five NCAA Championships in all, third most ever behind UCLA and the University of Kentucky. Indiana is also one of the most high profile teams in the sport–from the days of controversial head coach Bobby Knight until the present there have been countless Hoosier basketball supporters all over the world.
One of the best ways to enjoy Indiana basketball game action is through live streaming online. But let’s face it–there’s a lot of sketchy live sports stream websites out there. Sure, you want to watch Hoosier basketball but you don’t want to accidentally download malware, adware or a nasty virus. Fortunately, there’s also good websites where you can safely enjoy IU basketball live streaming. Here’s our choice for the five safest:
THE FIVE SAFEST SITES TO WATCH IU BASKETBALL ONLINE:
1. ESPN.COM: The ‘Worldwide Leader’ has an excellent digital platform and just about anything that shows on the TV station can be streamed live here. There’s also the WatchESPN mobile app that provides a 24/7 live streaming feed on your cellphone or tablet. Over half of the IU regular season schedule as well as the later rounds of the Big Ten tournament are on one of the ESPN networks. You can stream it all at ESPN.COM or on the go to the WatchESPN app.
2. BIG TEN NETWORK: The Big Ten Network (BTN.COM) carries all of the Indiana basketball games not shown on ESPN. The network has a comprehensive streaming presence available free for cable/satellite customers and by subscription for everyone else. Between Big Ten Digital and BTN2GO you’ll find plenty of Hoosier basketball action. You’ll also find coaches shows, pregame shows, postgame shows, historical documentaries and much more.
3. STREAM2WATCH.ME: There are some safe options amid the ‘Wild West’ of live sports streaming websites. STREAM2WATCH is a very efficient solution for the Indiana basketball fan looking for live game action. STREAM2WATCH.ME features an extensive directory of US cable TV networks including all of the ESPN variations and the Big Ten Network. If one of the network streams is offline, you can easily go to ‘Plan B’ and find the Hoosiers game in the well curated index of live game streams. STREAM2WATCH gives you several ways to watch IU hoops and is one of the safest sites of its type.
4. VIPBOX.EU: Unfortunately, sites we can recommend on the basis of safety are a minority in the live sports streaming genre. VIPBOX is one of the ‘good guys’. They don’t have a huge selection of sports, but they’ve got all of the big TV staples from North America and Europe–including college basketball. In addition, they’ve got multiple links for each game just in case one goes down. An excellent place to follow Indiana basketball as well as any other major sport.
5. ATDHE.ME: When you first visit ATDHE you might think that you’ve entered a time warp back to the early 1990’s. ADTHE’s web design would have been ‘behind the curve’ ten years ago. It looks like a teenager’s first effort at designing websites before the many online content delivery options became available. Yes, it’s an ugly site but it’s a great source for live college basketball streams including IU games. ATDHE does an excellent job with multiple stream links for every major US and European sport. Video quality is decent but most significantly ATDHE is a very safe site serving a minimal amount of advertising.
