How to watch NFL games FAQ
What is NFL SUNDAY TICKET?
NFL SUNDAY TICKET is a service offered through DIRECTV that gets you access to all out-of-market NFL games. Yeah, you heard us right. All. The. Games.
If you’re thinking, “But isn’t there more?,” DIRECTV created NFL SUNDAY TICKET MAX just for you. NFL SUNDAY TICKET MAX adds NFL RedZone and DIRECTV FANTASY ZONE to all your out-of-market games.
What is NFL RedZone?
NFL RedZone is your guaranteed one-stop shop for all NFL touchdowns. It broadcasts every team inside the red zone every Sunday afternoon, so you catch all the biggest moments.
Can I watch the NFL on Amazon Prime?
During the 2020 season, Amazon Prime will stream 11 of the Thursday Night Football games for $8.99 to $11.99 per month.
Can I watch the NFL on Hulu?
Yes, you can stream NFL games if you’re signed up for Hulu + Live TV. With Hulu Live, you can stream channels like CBS, FOX, and ESPN, but it’s missing the NFL Network, so you won’t get everything.
How can I watch NFL games without cable?
You can get your local team’s in-market coverage with an HD antenna, or you can snag Monday and Thursday night games with streaming services like fuboTV or Amazon Prime Video.
Is there a way to watch all NFL SUNDAY TICKET without DIRECTV?
For most of us, the answer is no. For a lucky few, the answer is yes.
DIRECTV just started offering NFL SUNDAY TICKET as a standalone service, but you have to fit some very specific criteria. You must live in certain cities, have an apartment that cannot access DIRECTV, or be a student at specific universities.
So we think you should test if your location checks out before you get too excited.
How much does NFL Game Pass cost?
NFL Game Pass costs $99.99 a year, or four installments of $29.99. While that is a high one-time fee, it does get you all live preseason games and full-game replays of every NFL game.
Can I watch NFL Network online?
Yes. If you have a TV subscription you can log on to the NFL app or head to NFL.com/watch with your streaming service or TV provider login and stream right away. If you’ve already cut the cord, then you can watch NFL Network through a live TV streaming service like fuboTV.
What streaming services offer NFL coverage?
With NFL games on ESPN, FOX, CBS, NBC, and the NFL Network, chances are most streaming services will get you some NFL coverage.
If you’re looking specifically for NFL Network, stick to fuboTV. If ESPN covers your needs, then Hulu Live, YouTube TV, or Sling TV would all be good picks. If you want our opinion, fuboTV is the best pick since it gets you both.
Can I watch NFL online for free?
No, you can’t watch NFL games free online. While the NFL mobile app is free to download, you have to log in with your streaming service or TV provider info to get your live in-market and primetime games.
The only way to get truly free games online is to get a free trial from a streaming service. (You could try to pirate NFL game, but we would never recommend that, now would we?)
Can I stream the NFL playoffs?
Yes, the NFL mobile app allows you to stream all 11 playoff games, but, again, you have to have a TV provider login.
Is there a way to watch all NFL games with DIRECTV?
DIRECTV offers NFL SUNDAY TICKET, which will get you every out-of-market NFL game. Combining the DIRECTV CHOICE package—which comes with free NFL SUNDAY TICKET for a year—with a basic HD Antenna for local network coverage should get you access to every NFL game.
How can I watch the NFL Playoffs?
The best way to watch the playoffs is with an HD antenna (like these), which should get you CBS, FOX, NBC, and ABC (and all the playoff games) for a one-time payment of $20 to $50. Fair-weather fans need not spend a grip of cash to watch the playoffs (we kid, we kid).
