The Best Way to Watch Live NFL Football Games Without Cable in 2020-2021

Best Way to Watch Every NFL Team without Cable

We picked the best live TV streaming services for each NFL team so you won’t miss a single play. Don’t subscribe to one until you check your favorite team’s schedule.

Local Market Broadcasts

Most National Football League (NFL) telecasts will air on CBS for AFC teams and FOX for NFC teams.

Sunday Night Football airs on NBC, Monday Night Football airs on ESPN, and Thursday Night Football generally airs on FOX/NFL Network/Amazon Prime Video.

To watch your local channels, ESPN, and NFL Network online without cable, you will need a subscription to one of the major Live TV Streaming Services.

You can choose between fuboTV, Hulu Live TV, Sling TV, AT&T TV NOW, and YouTube TV.

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

Not every live streaming service has locals in every market. Fortunately, at least one streaming service includes the main CBS or FOX affiliate in the local market of every NFL team.

CBS All Access

Additionally, CBS All Access provides an option for AFC fans to get their local CBS affiliate for only $5.99 / month. This is the cheapest option to get some games of your favorite AFC team.


OTA Antenna

Since most games are on local TV, you also have the option of just using an OTA antenna. You can check

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

NFL RedZone

One of football fans favorite channels is NFL RedZone. Instead of showing an entire telecast of a single game, it switches around between every game to show those with the most action.

fuboTV, Sling TV, YouTube TV, and soon Hulu Live TV, all offer NFL RedZone, as part of a $10-11 Sports add-on.

With both fuboTV and Sling TV you will also get NFL Network, NBA TV, MLB Network, and NHL Network.

You can also get the channel in the NFL App for $35 per season, but it only works on mobile and tablets (you can’t Cast the stream to your TV).
