This is the first season ever of the Alliance of American Football league, which is set to be a lot like the AFL and that the teams play while the NFL is in its offseason. On top of that, some players in the NFL that were backups are now starting in the AAF.
With this being a new football league in America, it’s always good to know how to stream the games since streaming has played such a big part in our society.
The games are played and broadcasted on CBS, CBS Sports Network, NFL Network and TNT.
The best way to stream the games is going to be through a live TV streaming service like YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV or PlayStation Vue. With that said, not all of those streaming services are going to have your local networks, so be sure that when you are signing up for them, that they have your local CBS station in order to watch the games live.
The cheapest route to do this will be through Sling TV. By getting the Sling Blue plan, you will be able to get both NFL Network and TNT. However, again, depending on your location, you may or may not be able to get your local CBS station. Also, Sling TV does not currently have CBS Sports Network.
NFL Network will only be broadcasting two games per week and TNT will only be showing two games per season.
Streaming games will also be available on the league’s app and the Bleacher Report Live service. Bleacher Report will only be offering one game to stream per week. CBS All Access will have live games on their CBS channel available to stream too. Games played on CBS Sports Network cannot be streamed (through the league’s app and Bleacher Report Live) due to their contract requirements.
For those who may want to know how to stream the games on the radio, SiriusXM will be airing radio coverage on select games. SiriusXM is available to stream on the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, and is also available to stream in the car with CarPlay.
