The 2019 NFL season is kicking off soon and we here thought it’d be a great idea if you knew how to stream the games this season.
Here are the following methods and ways to stream the games this year:
Live TV Streaming Services:
It’s no secret that live TV streaming services have taken over the way that we watch live TV and sports. With that said, you’ll have many choices to choose from.
- Sling TV ($25 a month): Could be good for those who just want a cheap streaming service. However, it likely will not have your local stations unless you live in a big city like New York City or Los Angeles. The two big channels you will be able to get are ESPN for Monday Night Football and NFL Network for Thursday Night Football. The bad news with that is that ESPN is on the Sling Orange plan and NFL Network is on the Sling Blue plan. Both plans are $25 each and can be combined on the Sling Orange + Blue plan for $45 a month.
- Hulu with Live TV ($44 a month): A great streaming service that is one of your best choices for sports channels. This live TV streaming service will more than likely have your local stations, but you will have to check with the streaming service first. Additionally, it will have ESPN for Monday Night Football, but not NFL Network for Thursday Night Football. However, if you get your FOX station, you will be able to get that game.
- YouTube TV ($50 per month): This is very similar to Hulu with Live TV, but will be the best option when it comes to having your local stations, meaning that you will be able to stream games on CBS, FOX, NBC and ABC through this service.
- PlayStation Vue (Recommended plan: Core plan for $55 a month): Again, there is a good chance you will be able to get your local station with this service. However, you will also get ESPN for those Monday Night Football games and NFL Network too.
- AT&T NOW TV (Recommended plan: Plus plan for $50 a month): You should be able to get your local channels, but I will not guarantee it for this service. ESPN is included with this service too.
- FuboTV ($55 a month): There is a good chance that you will be able to get your local CBS, FOX and NBC, making this a great streaming service to watch games on this season.
Other Streaming Services:
- CBS All Access: This service will allow you to watch the NFL game that is in your area. If you get the Indianapolis Colts game that week on your local CBS station, that is the game and only game you can watch from the service at that time.
- FOX Sports GO: As long as you sign-in with your TV provider credentials, you will be able to stream games right from this service. Their Apple TV app also allows you to stream up to four FOX Sports channels at once. So, if you want to watch the NFL game and NASCAR race at the same time, you can do so from its Apple TV.
- NBC Sports: Again, you’ll have to sign-in with your TV provider credentials, but this is another great and legal way to stream NFL games from the device of your choice.
- ESPN: This can come in handy when the network is showing their Monday Night Football games, as well as playoff games that are broadcasted on ABC. You will have to sign-in with your TV provider credentials too in order to watch games this way.
- Yahoo: The NFL does allow for Yahoo to have a free livestream of select NFL games throughout the season, most notably, the games that are played in London each year. You can watch them from your iPhone, iPad, Apple TV or Mac.
- Prime Video: Amazon does have a partnership with the NFL that makes it so that you can stream Thursday Night Football games through Prime Video. It’s an additional perk for Amazon Prime subscribers and to encourage people to use Prime Video.
All of the services and apps mentioned here are available on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Apple TV and Mac.
We hope you are excited for the upcoming NFL season. Let us know in the comments on how you will be streaming NFL games this year!
