Below is a full breakdown of live streaming options for NFL games this postseason.
How to watch NFL playoff games for free without cable
One of the best ways to stream NFL games for free is through Yahoo! Sports app. Yahoo allows users to stream all national and local market TV games for free. This streaming option is especially good for those who watch on mobile devices.
The major live TV streaming services in the United States also broadcast most NFL games. Streamers can choose to use AT&T TV Now, fuboTV, Hulu Plus Live TV, Sling TV, or YouTube TV, as most include the major networks where the games will be shown: Fox, CBS, NBC, and ESPN.
All five live TV streaming services also offer free trials. Therefore, streamers will have the option to use all free trials and opt out before they end to keep the free experience.
Can I watch NFL games on YouTube TV?
Yes. YouTube TV includes all four major networks: Fox, CBS, NBC, and ESPN. YouTube TV also carries NFL Network, so users will be able to stream exclusive NFL Network games using YouTube TV.
YouTube TV also includes a bundle containing NFL Redzone.
Can I watch NFL games on Hulu?
Yes. Hulu includes Fox, CBS, NBC and ESPN, so streamers will be able to catch all the domestic and home market games with Hulu. Hulu also added NFL Network to its rotation, so it contains most of the same viewing options as YouTube TV.
Can I watch NFL games on Sling TV?
Yes, but not all. Sling TV has two separate packages, Orange and Blue, and the streaming service includes Fox, NBC, ESPN, and the NFL Network within those packages. However, they do not have CBS. So if you use Sling TV, know that you won’t be able to watch the local market games that are on CBS through the service.
Can I watch NFL games on AT&T TV Now?
Yes. AT&T TV Now carries Fox, CBS, NBC, and ESPN, so streamers can catch just about every game broadcast nationally.
Can I watch NFL games on fuboTV?
Yes. FuboTV carries Fox, CBS, NBC, and ESPN, but like AT&T Now, they don’t have the NFL Network. However, fuboTV does have a package that includes NFL Redzone, which offers live views of all games on Sunday afternoons from 1 pm to 8 pm ET.
How to Live Stream NFL Games in Canada
