How to live stream Caitlin Clark’s first WNBA game tonight

Caitlin Clark makes her anticipated WNBA debut tonight when the Indiana Fever travel to Mohegan Sun Arena to take on Alyssa Thomas and the Connecticut Sun.

The Indiana Fever vs Connecticut Suns game is starting soon, at 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2. If you don’t have cable, we’ve found a handful of different ways you can watch a free live stream of the Fever vs Sun. Grab one soon before the game tips off.

Is There a Free Live Stream of Caitlin Clark’s WNBA Debut?

While not every WNBA game will be on national TV this season, this one unsurprisingly makes the cut. It’ll be on ESPN2, which–if you don’t have cable–you can watch via a live-TV streaming service such as Fubo (“Pro” channel package), YouTube TV (“Base Plan”) or DirecTV Stream (“Entertainment” channel package or above).

Not only do all of these services include ESPN2 along with dozens of other channels, but they all come with a free trial. That means you can sign up for one of them, watch Caitlin Clark’s WNBA debut tonight (as well as the Mercury vs Aces, which is also on ESPN2 after the Fever vs Sun) and then cancel your subscription without ever having to pay anything.

With any of these options, you can watch a live stream of the game on your phone, tablet or connected-to-TV streaming device (Roku, Firestick, Apple TV, etc.) via your streaming service’s app. You can also watch on your computer via your streaming service’s website.

If you take free trials out of the equation, the cheapest way to watch a live stream of Caitlin Clark’s WNBA debut is ESPN+, which will stream both the Fever vs Sun and Mercury vs Aces games tonight.

Though ESPN+ doesn’t come with a free trial, it costs just $11 per month, or $15 for a bundle of ESPN+, Hulu and Disney+. That’s certainly one of the best values in sports streaming, and you’ll have plenty to watch even after tonight’s game concludes. Not only will you get various WNBA games throughout the season, but there’s also dozens of other live sports, 30-for-30 documentaries, original shows and more exclusive content.

Clark has obviously turned herself into an international star, so there are undoubtedly people from outside of the United States hoping to watch her WNBA debut. If you’re in a country where the game isn’t available to watch, you can combine one of the aforementioned streaming services with a virtual private network (VPN).

All of those streaming services are geographically restricted to US-only, but a VPN can hide your IP address and location. This lets you bypass these restrictions and safely stream content from anywhere in the world.

We recommend NordVPN, which is safe, fast and easy to use. But if you’re looking for some other options, we’ve put together a rundown of the best VPN services and the best VPN deals.
