How Cord Cutters Can Watch NFL Games




The fall is almost here and that means U.S. football is back. The good news for cord cutters is it is now easier than ever to watch your NFL team as a cord cutter!

We already have covered how to watch college football, so let us take a look at how you can legally watch the NFL on your big screen TV.

Antenna—ABC, NBC, Fox, and CBS Games

The first thing you need is an antenna to watch local games for free and in HD. Since most NFL games are broadcast on Fox, CBS, NBC, and ABC most Americans can watch these games free with an antenna. To see if you get your local stations free over the air where you live check out to find out what kind of antenna will work for you. (Indoor or roof top)

Sling TV—Monday Night Football

Now that Sling TV is here cord cutters can get easy access to Monday Night Football on ESPN. Sling TV is $20 a month with no contract so subscribe when you want it and cancel at any time. Now with ESPN also having a playoff game Sling TV is a must have for NFL fans.

Sling TV offers a free 7-day trial so give it a try worry free. Just make sure to cancel before the end of 7 days if you do not want to keep it.

NFL Network

Well here is the one blind spot… The NFL Network game as of today is still hard to get for cord cutters. My suggestion if your team plays a game on the NFL Network: head over to a friend’s house or your local sports bar for the game.

CBS Live Stream

CBS will live stream two regular-season NFL games, four playoff games, and Super Bowl 50 all for free this year. The games will even be available on the CBS Sports Roku Channel! So here is one more great option for NFL fans this season.

We hope this helped you watch your NFL team or maybe even become a cord cutter. If you have any questions please leave it in the comments.
