Budget alternative for NFC fans in big cities: Sling Blue ($40) or antenna ($20 one-time) Those looking to save some cash might want to check out Sling Blue for $40 a month. While it lacks ESPN, meaning you'll miss out on Monday Night Football, in select markets you'll be able to get Fox and NBC. The catch is that those markets are mainly in big cities, so if you live outside one of those areas, Sling Blue might not be for you. You can also add RedZone through the company's $11 per month Sports Extra add-on. Fox broadcasts most NFC games on Sundays, while NBC has Sunday Night Football.
It pops in and out of the live games and attempts to show each touchdown scored in each game. RedZone is available as an add-on on four of the five major live TV streaming services -- all but DirecTV Stream. Best for everything: YouTube TV ($65) Sarah Tew/CNET Our pick from the last two years remains our go-to choice in 2022. At $65 per month each, YouTube TV checks all the NFL boxes. Local channels CBS, NBC and Fox are included in many markets, and ESPN and the NFL Network are also included so you can watch Sundays and Monday nights. The next best options are FuboTV and Hulu Plus Live TV; both offer the same channels as YouTube TV for NFL fans, but for $70 a month. Want to follow your fantasy team with RedZone? That's available on all three services as part of an add-on.
The cheapest way to stream NFL RedZoneNFL RedZone shows every touchdown scored during the Sunday afternoon games each week. Rob Carr/Getty Images A frequent fan-favorite method of following all the NFL action on Sundays, RedZone is a way to catch every big play around the league. The cheapest road to RedZone is to get Sling TV Blue for $40 per month and add the $11 per month Sports Extra add-on. This option can also be streamed on a host of devices including iOS, Android, Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV and web browsers. Note: If you only subscribe to Sling's Orange package you won't be able to get RedZone in Sports Extra. Your base package needs to be either Sling Blue or its larger Sling Blue Plus Orange bundle for you to be able to get RedZone as an add-on.
While all three are largely similar, we like YouTube TV for its superior DVR -- unlimited storage compared with 30 hours on FuboTV and 50 hours on Hulu. We also like YouTube TV because it gives you an option to stream in 4K for an extra $20 a month. FuboTV does, too, with its $80-a-month Elite plan. Keep in mind that only Fox and NBC offer 4K NFL broadcasts; CBS and ESPN do not. DirecTV Stream offers the main broadcast channels for NFL games, but it starts at $70 per month and lacks NFL Network and RedZone. Sling TV's Orange and Blue plan for $55 a month gets you ESPN and the NFL Network, and, in select major markets, Fox and/or NBC, but you'll still lack CBS. You can also add RedZone for $11 per month with the Sports Extra add-on.
You can also subscribe only to Prime Video for $9 a month. The first eight games on Amazon Prime Video's exclusive Thursday Night Football coverage for the 2022 NFL season. Amazon What about Sunday Ticket? For one more season, NFL Sunday Ticket is still largely limited to DirecTV satellite subscribers.
CBS, which broadcasts the bulk of AFC games, isn't included on Sling at all. But an antenna can fill those local channel gaps without a monthly charge. Budget alternatives for AFC fans: Paramount Plus (or an antenna) There are some apps that offer CBS' slate of Sunday AFC games live, including Paramount Plus' Premium tier for $10 per month. Depending on where you live, however, your local CBS station (and those NFL games) might not be available. CBS offers livestreaming services in many markets; you can check for yourself if your area has live CBS streaming here. An antenna is another option for getting CBS.
If you're a YouTube TV subscriber, you can add the $11 per month Sports Plus add-on by clicking on your profile and going to Settings, then the Membership tab. FuboTV subscribers can go into My Profile and choose Manage Add-ons to get its $11-per-month Sports Plus with NFL RedZone offering. And Hulu users can now add RedZone for $10 per month with its Sports add-on. Both YouTube TV and FuboTV allow three people to watch at once (Hulu allows two live streams) and all three have apps on nearly every mobile device and major streaming platform, including Amazon Fire TV, Google TV, Roku and Apple TV.
Prior to the season, the NFL launched a new streaming service for watching games on your phone or tablet -- no casting to your TV. In past years, you could do this for free with the Yahoo Sports app, but now you'll need to pay $5 a month or $40 for the season for the NFL Plus subscription. With it, you'll be able to watch every local game on Sunday and the national games on Sunday, Monday and Thursday nights as well as the playoffs and Super Bowl -- again, only on your phone or tablet. Lastly, there's NFL RedZone, a channel that springs to life each fall and shows live NFL action during the Sunday afternoon games.

Paying for cable is the easiest solution, but not the cheapest. For cord-cutters looking to save some money, NFL football streaming options can get complicated, with games played across three different days and nights each week on different channels and streaming services. Most NFL games are played on Sunday, with a game each week on Thursday night and another each week on Monday night. On Sundays, games start at 1 p. ET (10 a. PT) and 4 p. ET (1 p.

And as we mentioned above, an over-the-air antenna connected to your TV provides another option, no streaming or monthly fee required, as long as you have good reception. Thursday Night Football: Amazon Prime VideoIn past years, Thursday Night Football games were shown on Prime Video but were also available on Fox or NFL Network. This year, starting Week 2, the games on Thursday nights are available only on Prime Video, giving NFL fans more incentive than free two-day shipping to sign up for an Amazon Prime account for $15 a month or $139 a year.

ET), with most AFC teams on CBS and most NFC teams on Fox. Although the first Thursday night game was on NBC, the rest of the games for Thursday Night Football (with the exception of Week 12's Thanksgiving Thursday games) will be shown on Amazon Prime Video. Unlike last season, Prime Video is now the exclusive home of Thursday Night Football and the games are no longer available on Fox or NFL Network, though the games will be available on TV in teams' local markets. As in previous seasons, Monday Night Football games will be on ESPN.
