Top-seeded South Carolina have gone a jaw-dropping 78-1 over the past two seasons, that sole defeat coming at this stage last year. To say that Dawn Staley hasn't been given due credit would be a huge understatement.

She had to rebuild the entire starting team from scratch, yet they're once again on the verge of becoming the first team since 2016 to win the National Championship with a perfect record, ousting NC State in the previous round.

Iowa and Naismith Player of the Year award, Caitlin Clark, narrowly defeated fan-favorite UConn to make it to the final round. There's no denying that everyone outside of South Carolina will be pulling for Clark and the Haweyes to have an epic ending to the already miraculous story.

Here's everything you need to know to watch the women's Final Four championship game online, plus the full schedule, TV channels, and all the live stream information, with or without cable.

In the U.S., the championship game of the women's Final Four is being shown on ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN Plus.

If you've already cut the cord and don't have a cable package, you can get the channels through an OTT cable TV alternative.

Sling TV is the option we'd recommend. It includes ESPN and ESPN2 in its Orange plan, with prices starting from $40/month and your first month half-price. Better yet, Sling Orange also includes TBS, which is showing every remaining men's March Madness game.

You can get ESPN and ESPN2 on the Sling TV Orange package. New subscribers get 50% off their first month. Sling Orange will also let you watch the championship game and every remaining men's March Madness game.


Costing only $10.99/month, ESPN Plus is an affordable way to watch a massive range of top quality live sports, including MLB, NBA, UFC, PGA Tour golf, various international soccer competitions, a whole host of NCAA college sports. For even better value, you can include it alongside Disney+ and Hulu in the Disney Plus Bundle from only $14.99/month.

Fubo is a great alternative to a cable package. The Pro Plan ($79.99 per month) gets you well over 100 channels including ESPN and ESPN2. And you can try it all out with Fubo's 7-day free trial. It does not, however, carry TBS, TNT or TruTV.
