The NFL kicks off their season tonight and with that said, there are going to be many of you out there that will want to stream the game.
Like always, the game is being broadcasted nationally on NBC. NBC has broadcasted the kickoff games for the NFL since 2006.
One of the most efficient ways to stream the game is with live TV streaming service providers such as Sling TV, Hulu with Live TV, or YouTube TV. The only issue that comes with this is that the local networks are only available in certain locations. If you live in a big city, this is likely not going to be an issue. If you live in a small town or in a rural area, you’re not going to have much luck.
- Sling TV: 7-day free trial
- PlayStation Vue: 5-day free trial
- Hulu with Live TV: 30-day free trial
- DirecTV Now: 7-day free trial
- YouTube TV: 7-day free trial (only available in certain areas)
- Fubo TV: 7-day free trial
Another way to stream the games is through the NBC Live Sports Live Extra. This will be the best way to stream the game since it is free to stream. No need to sign-in with a cable or satellite provider. That method will work with the iPhone, iPad and Mac, but not the Apple TV.
The NFL’s own official app is another way to stream the game too. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Verizon users are no longer getting exclusive streaming coverage to watch games on their smartphone or cellular-enabled tablet.
Lastly, NFL GamePass will be the last option for streaming the game on. The service costs $99 a year and can be accessed on the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Mac and Apple TV.
Overall, all of the services mentioned above are available on the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Mac and Apple TV. Enjoy the game tonight, everyone!
