The 2022 NFL season is finally getting underway and with that comes new methods of streaming the season.
For starters, the first thing you will want to do is get yourself set up with a live TV streaming service. Since NFL games are specifically on local TV stations, the best way to do this would be through Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV, fuboTV, or DirecTV Stream.
At this time, Sling TV currently only has local stations in certain TV markets and is not widespread like the live TV streaming services listed above. However, they all do have access to channels like NFL Network, so keep that in mind.
Along with having access to local TV stations, all of the live TV streaming services do have NFL RedZone as an option. With that said, it is a premium add-on, so keep that in mind. It is not included when you initially sign up for a live TV streaming service.
The next option is the new NFL+ streaming service that starts at just $4.99 a month and enables you to stream all of the games being broadcast in your local TV market, and primetime games as well.
While it is cheap, the catch is you can only stream it from devices like the iPhone or iPad, and not others like the Apple TV.
Another option to stream games this season is through Paramount+. The streaming service does provide a 24/7 feed of your local CBS station, which will enable you to stream the game that is playing on the CBS station in your TV market.
There are additional plans this season to have a Christmas Day game with a broadcast that is more centered for children that will air on Nickelodeon, with the regular broadcast airing on CBS and streaming live on Paramount+.
Paramount+ with your local CBS station will cost you $9.99 a month, as well as all of the other perks and content on the streaming service with it. This does include the version of Paramount+ on Apple TV Channels too.
Peacock will be the streaming home of NFL Sunday Night Football on NBC this season. The streaming service will additionally have pre and post-game coverage too.
ESPN+ is another streaming service getting on live NFL games this year. It will be the streaming home of Monday Night Football for the first three weeks of the season and weeks 15 and 17.
It will also be the exclusive provider for the week eight matchup between the Baltimore Ravens and Tampa Bay Buccaneers that will be played in London.
Those looking to stream those FOX games outside of live TV streaming services and NFL+ will have to use the FOX Sports or FOX NOW apps, but both apps require a TV provider login in order to access the live content on them.
Lastly, Prime Video will be the exclusive home of Thursday Night Football this season. Prime Video is included with Amazon Prime, but for those just wanting Prime Video itself can subscribe to it through the App Store for just $8.99 a month.
The first TNF game of the season will be played at 8:15 p.m. ET, Thursday, September 15, between the Kansas Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers.
