How to Watch the Entire 2019 NFL Playoffs Without Cable or Satellite

The NFL playoffs is finally here — and over the past 12 months it’s become even easier to watch your favorite NFL team battle their way to the Super Bowl even if you’ve cut the cord.

1. Watch Local Games with an Antenna

Just like the old days, you can still pick up local channels from CBS, NBC, FOX, and ABC from an antenna. Outside of the cost of the antenna, you won’t pay a thing to watch your favorite team.

If you live within 35 miles of the broadcast signal, you will likely be able to pick up your locals channels with a cheap indoor antenna ($15-30).

We suggest the Mohu Leaf 30 (30-mile range) or Mohu Leaf 50 (60-mile range) depending on line of sight.

Here are a few we recommend:

Mohu Leaf 30

Up to 30 Mile Range

Mohu Leaf 50

Up to 60 Mile Range

2. Subscribe to a Live TV Streaming Service

There are six major streaming providers that offer Live TV Streaming. These allow you to watch NFL Playoffs games live using iOS, Android, Roku, Apple TV, Fire TV, Chromecast, and Web.

3. Watch Playoff Games on Yahoo! with your Mobile Device for Free

Last season, Verizon acquired the rights to streaming nationally televised games on phones and tablets.

Any wireless customer can now stream all CBS, FOX, NBC, ESPN, and NFL Network games on their smartphone or tablet for free.

The games will be available on the NFL App and Verizon-owned properties like Yahoo Sports, Tumblr, and AOL.

Unfortunately, the apps won’t let you stream the games on our TV — you’ll need a Live TV Streaming Service for that.
