Thanks to multiple streaming options, you don't have to hang around a television set just to catch your favorite team.
The NFL lets you watch its games on the platform of your choice, whether you're looking to stream from a phone , laptop , set-top box or anything in-between. The methods for watching NFL games change often as the league signs new contracts and streaming services change their policies, and we're always updating this guide with the latest broadcast info.
With so many good matchups, you're probably looking for a way to catch the action online. Here are the best ways to live stream NFL games.
The service broadcasts live coverage from every game on a given Sunday, but only when a team is in the "red zone," or about to potentially score a touchdown. Because it also gives you real-time fantasy stats and extended highlights, it's especially useful for fantasy-football fans. NFL RedZone games air between 1 p.
You can watch RedZone from your cable or satellite provider's streaming service or on a variety of apps for smartphones, tablets and connected devices like Apple TV and PlayStation 4.
You can also watch games in a web browser.
This service streams live games in their entirety to televisions, computers, Android and iOS devices, and game consoles. Sunday Ticket applies only to out-of-market games.
Game Pass also lets you watch select preseason games, listen to local radio broadcasts of games and watch condensed versions that squeeze an entire game into 30 minutes. In addition to a back catalog of CBS shows, plus some streaming-only shows like Star Trek: Discovery, this service also lets you watch your local CBS station and the game in your market as it airs.
As long as you have Amazon Prime Video, you can watch Thursday Night Football on the servic e without ever needing to pay extra.
Amazon Prime Video cannot air those games. Many online guides suggest that if you use a VPN to make it look like you're located in Europe, and use that to sign up for the European version of NFL Game Pass , you'll be able to watch any game you want live.
Nearly every European country and former Soviet republic can access NFL Game Pass, but you might not want to pick the United Kingdom or Ireland as your "location," because some blackouts apply there, too.
It meets the VPN needs of the vast majority of users, offering outstanding compatibility with most devices and impressive connection speeds. Signing up for longer periods of six months or a year reduces the cost even more. Services like Channel Master and Tablo allow you to hook up an HD antenna to a DVR box, then broadcast the stream — either live or recorded — to a set-top box, mobile device or computer just about anywhere in the world.
