Are You Ready For Some Football?

With 39 million households not watching traditional TV via cable today, and an estimated 25% of all U.S. households estimated to be cutting the cord by 2022, a major question for some is - how can consumers watch live NFL games?

There are a number of online and streaming outlets to watch live NFL games this upcoming season, and we’ve explored a number of them in the below article.

TV Antenna
There are a number of antenna options to choose from in your local electronics store that easily connect into your TV and provide you access to local channels to watch the NFL. And the signal quality from these antennas in in HD so you’re not sacrificing quality from your current cable provider. Plus the true benefit from using an antenna is that all of your local channels are provided to you – FREE.

Sling TV has the lowest base price among live streaming services, with the Blue plan for $25/month. The Blue plan will allow for you to stream Sunday Night Football and the NFL Kickoff game. At $40/month , you can access the Orange+Blue plan which will include both ESPN and the NFL Network.

Hulu + Live TV
For $44.99/month consumers can access their local channels along with Hulu's original content. There are a number of live games offered but be sure to do your homework on what is available in your area.

YouTube TV
Youtube TV at $49.99/month is a favorite for live TV streaming. YouTube TV offers over 70 channels including local networks based on where you live. It includes ESPN but not the NFL Network.

PlayStation Vue
At $54.99 PlayStation Vue's "Core" package covers a lot of your NFL streaming needs. The package includes your local channels as well as ESPN and the NFL Network. For an additonal cost of $10/month, you can add Red Zone.

Amazon Prime
If you're already an Amazon Prime Subscriber or thinking about purchasing a membership, Prime Video will show 11 Thursday Night Football games this season beginning on September 26th. Check out the full schedule to see which teams will be playing. 

Fubo TV is a popular sports streaming service that also gives you access to live TV channels. The service, at $54.99/month, includes access to CBS, Fox, NBC and the NFL Network but it does not come with ESPN.

In addition to these streaming services, the NFL can also be accessed through other apps, online streaming services, and additional devices. Regardless of HOW you do it, the most important thing is that you CAN do it without subscribing to cable TV.
