How to watch, stream NFL football games live online free without cable: Fox, CBS, NBC, ESPN: Week Thirteen


There are a lot of streaks going on in the NFL right now.

The Denver Broncos have won five straight games. So have the Philadelphia Eagles. Meanwhile, the Cowboys, Colts and 49ers have won three in a row.

When teams go on a tear like that, it usually means one of two things. Either they’re on the fast track for a playoff berth—or their fans are about to witness a heart-wrenching conflagration. This week could see a few of those stretches come to an end.

Thanksgiving week was a wild one with some surprise victories. And as the hunt for a spot in the postseason heats up, expect to see more upsets as the underdogs begin to hunt.

Here’s a look at how to watch this week’s games.

How can I watch NFL games for free—even if I am out of market?

It’s easy! All you’ll need is a good HD antenna. To ensure you’re getting the most reliable signal, be sure to test the antenna in multiple locations in your home. Every game will be broadcast over the air, though regional blackouts will apply.

Can I stream NFL games live online if I don’t have a cable subscription?

You can—and there are lots of services that will help you do so.


NBC’s streaming service will give you access to several games, including tonight’s contest and all upcoming Sunday night matchups. You can get a seven-day free trial, followed by a $6 or $12 monthly charge. (The free version of Peacock does not include live sports.)


Disney’s bundle of Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+ no longer has a free trial, so you’ll have to pay $15 per month for all three combined (or $25 per month for no ads on Hulu).

Including Live TV in the bundle bumps the price to $77 per month ($90 with no ads).

Hulu with Live TV

The free trial on this service is no longer offered, either. It will now cost you $77 per month.


After up to a two-week trial, you can expect monthly charges of $73. YouTube is also now the home of Sunday Ticket. Prices on that service initially ranged from $300 to $439 for the season, with some current discounts. YouTube, however, recently kicked off a mid-season special, dropping the price for the rest of the year to $174.

Sling TV

Dish Network’s Sling lower-tiered “Orange” plan will run you $40 per month. Adding the more comprehensive “Blue” plan bumps the cost to $55 per month. The seven-day free trial has disappeared, but the cord-cutting service is offering 50% off of the first month’s bill.

DirecTV Stream

Formerly known as DirecTV Now, AT&T TVNow and AT&T TV, this oft-renamed streaming service will run you $75 per month and up after the free trial option.

Fubo TV

This sports-focused cord-cutting service carries broadcast networks in most markets. There’s a seven-day free trial, followed by monthly charges of $75 and up, depending on the channels you choose.

Can I watch the NFL games on Amazon?

Not on the weekend, but Amazon has a lock on Thursday Night Football. The next game on the streaming service will be the New England Patriots facing the Pittsburgh Steelers on Dec. 7.

Does the NFL offer any viewing packages to watch the games I want?

There are several you can choose from.


The NFL App will let you stream games that are being broadcast locally in your market on Sundays. If you want to watch an “out of market” game, you’ve got two choices.


Watch live local and out-of-market games and (with the premium subscription) replays. There’s a seven-day free trial, after which you’re looking at a charge of $6.99 per month (including NFL Network). ($14.99 per month for premium, which includes NFL Network and RedZone.)

NFL Sunday Ticket

As mentioned above, YouTube has taken over broadcast duties for this channel, replacing DirecTV. With the current offered discounts, prices on the service (and the optional NFL Red Zone) currently range from $300 to $439 for the season.
