Jason Gurwin

While the NFL regular season does not kickoff until mid-September, after The Hall of Fame game last week, the NFL preseason officially kicks off this Thursday.

How to Stream the 2019 NFL Preseason Online Without Cable

Which Streaming Service Should I Use for the 2019 NFL Preseason?

While there are a number of options, we suggest you use PlayStation Vue. You will get NFL Network, ESPN, CBS, FOX, NBC, and can add NFL RedZone. This means you’ll get the widest coverage of both local and nationally televised games for $50.

Our Pick

PlayStation Vue

You’ll get ESPN, NFL Network, CBS, FOX, NBC, and NFL RedZone (+$9).

Once you subscribe, you will be able to stream both local and nationally televised NFL preseason games on Apple TV, Roku, Amazon, Fire TV, Chromecast, iOS, and Android.

Depending on whether you want to watch your local team, nationally televised games, or out-of-market, we’ve got you covered with the best way to stream your favorite team.

National Games

Local Games

How to Stream Local NFL Preseason Games in 2019

During the Regular Season, AFC teams mostly air on CBS, while NFC teams mostly air on FOX. It’s slightly different during the preseason where each team partners with a local affiliate to air their preseason games.

Since each service offers a different set of local channels, we reviewed which service gets the most local games for each team. Even if a service gets a channel, not every local affiliate has the rights to stream pre-season NFL games. If it doesn’t stream on one service, it won’t stream on any of them.
