2. 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, Yahoo Fantasy App, 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.
3. 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).
Here are a few we recommend:

Up to 30 Mile Range
Mohu Leaf 50
Up to 60 Mile Range
