Where to stream NFL online
Get your pigskin fix with these streaming options for the 2020 season and beyond.
Your streaming cup runneth over with ways to watch NFL football this season. But — depending on the package — there are nuances to which games you can watch, when you can watch them and on what devices.
How to watch NFL online: Paid and free options
Option 1: Watching NFL with NFL RedZone
- Cost: Varies depending on your streaming service — check with your provider to see if a free trial is available
- Estimated time to set up: Less than 10 minutes, no installation required
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.
If you’re looking for Thursday night football, NFL Network has you covered. 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. Note that Game Pass only streams replays, not live games.
Option 2: Watching NFL with Sling TV
- $20 per month for the first month — then $30 per month — with Sling Orange or Sling Blue, plus $10 for the Sports Extra
- $35 per month for the first month — then $45 per month — with Sling Orange + Sling Blue, plus $10 for the Sports Extra
- Estimated time to set up: Less than 15 minutes, no installation required
As with any streaming service, your NFL options with Sling TV are nuanced. 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.
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:
- Sling Orange, one screen
- Sling Blue, three screens
- Sling Orange + Blue, four screens
Option 3: Watching NFL with Hulu + Live TV
- Cost: $54.99 per month with a free 7-day trial
- Estimated time to set up: Less than five minutes, no installation required
Though you won’t have access to the NFL Network, Hulu + Live TV’s suite of channels are robust enough to keep most football fans happy. You’ll be able to watch live games on CBS, Fox, ESPN, NBC, NBCSN and plenty of others.
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.
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.
