Watch the NFL Without Cable
If you’ve ditched your cable company in favor of one (or several) video streaming services, you can still watch most of the live sports you want, including NFL broadcasts. On-demand services such as Netflix, Disney+, and HBO Max don’t offer live sports though, so you need to subscribe to a cable-replacement service that streams live channels. Not all these live streaming services are ideal for NFL fans, as they may be missing some key coverage networks. You should also consider the features and other content a service offers to determine which is the best value for your household.

The NFL season is set to begin on Sept. 10, but that date is subject to change, given the pandemic-related uncertainty surrounding all sports this year. If you are looking to watch sports other than the NFL, check out our roundup of how to watch every sport without cable.

National vs. Local Broadcasts
NFL games generally air at four time slots on different networks during the regular season: Thursday Night Football (Amazon Prime Video, FOX, and NFL Network), Sunday afternoons (CBS and FOX), Sunday Night Football (NBC), and Monday Night Football (ESPN). Note that some Thursday Night Football games are exclusive to the NFL Network. Broadcasts of playoff games are split between CBS, ESPN, FOX, and NBC. The best NFL streaming services include all of these channels, or at least the vast majority of them.

Not all broadcasts are the same, however. For instance, which NFL games you can watch on Sunday afternoons depends on your local market. These games are carried on local affiliate channels and are subject to the same blackout rules as cable broadcasts. The NFL matchups on Sunday nights and every other day of the week are national broadcasts, so you can watch them regardless of your location. Playoff games and the Super Bowl are also televised to national audiences.
