NFL RedZone is arguably the holy grail of Sunday football action. You’ll first need to set it up through your TV streaming service, such as Sling TV or fuboTV. Once you do, you’ll have access to every live afternoon game, plus highlights and fantasy stats.
Another option for accessing games is subscribing to NFL Network. It has Thursday night football and late-season Saturday games. All told you have a range of options to join NFL RedZone or NFL Network, including Cox, DirecTV, Fios TV from Verizon, fuboTV, Optimum, Spectrum TV, Xfinity and YouTube TV. Costs vary, discounts and free trials are often available.
DirecTV also showcases NFL Sunday Ticket, which has unlimited streaming of live out-of-market Sunday afternoon games. For Sunday and Monday night games, you can watch through the NFL Mobile App on your phone or tablet, or check out NFL Game Pass. But the biggest caveat with NFL Game Pass in the US is it only streams replays, not live games.
As with most streaming services, your NFL options with Sling TV are varied. While some games may be available through Sling Orange alone, your best bet for catching the most games is signing up for Sling Blue with Sports Extra. Add Sling Orange and you’ll also pick up Monday Night Football. It’s worth noting Sling TV doesn’t have access to CBS, NFL Network or RedZone.
Costs start from $20 per month for the first month — then $30 per month — with Sling Orange or Sling Blue, plus $10 for the Sports Extra. Another option will set you back $35 per month for the first month — then $45 per month — with Sling Orange + Sling Blue, plus $10 for the Sports Extra.
You can search your specific team’s schedule on Sling TV’s site and there’s no long-term contract. Note that the subscription you choose determines how many screens you can watch games on at the same time. We have a full review of Sling TV and there’s also a short free trial.

Though you won’t have access to the NFL Network with Hulu + Live TV either, its suite of channels is robust enough to keep most football fans happy.

A subscription also includes bonuses like the ability to record games, watch on your phone through the Hulu + Live TV app and get push notifications when your games are starting. It costs $54.99/month and comes with a free 7-day trial.

fuboTV is a great option if you want to get your fix of football. With fuboTV you can access local Fox, CBS and NBC affiliates, plus ESPN, NFL Network and NFL RedZone. Starting at $59.99/month, fubo also has a 7-day free trial for you to check it all out. There are more details on fuboTV here.
It also comes with a minimum 30-hour Cloud DVR and is compatible with a wide range of modern devices. The standard plan has over 100 channels, but if that isn’t enough there are also a range of add-ons, including a lot more sports.
fuboTV has plenty of channels to watch the NFL on.
CBS allows you to watch NFL games live using its streaming platform, which was renamed Paramount+ from CBS All Access in March 2021. Starting at just $5.99/month with commercials and $9.99/month without, it’s one of the cheaper options on the cluttered streaming market. There is also a discounted $99.99 annual pass and a 7-day free trial.
Last season, Sundays were the best days for football on CBS All Access, including six games live on opening weekend alone. Last season CBS showed 105 games, including nine doubleheader Sundays, a traditional Thanksgiving Day game and a London clash. You can stream every game in your local market, plus it has loads of additional NFL content.

Provided you already have an Amazon Prime Video account, you have access to some live NFL. Earlier this year Amazon and the NFL announced a multi-year extension on the deal to stream Thursday night football live. For the first time, this coming season it has also secured exclusive access to one Saturday night fixture on Prime Video and Twitch, to be played in the second half of the season. The game will also be televised in the local market of the participating teams.
Get the NFL on Amazon and make the most of Prime's other benefits.
If you subscribe to ESPN through a cable package, you can stream football through the Watch ESPN app. Opening with a Monday night double-header in week one — Steelers vs Giants and Titans vs Broncos — it then has every Monday night game for the rest of the season. You can also access the Pro Bowl and one Wildcard playoff game. It is compatible with most devices via your pay TV subscription.
However, it’s important to note you can’t get the NFL via ESPN+.
As you can see, your options for streaming NFL games are seemingly endless — a good problem to have. But before jumping into a package, read the fine print and understand what you’re signing up for. You can potentially save money by prioritizing which games are the most important to you and choosing an appropriate service tier.
