How to Watch NFL Football Live Without Cable in 2022

Written by John O'Connor

You can live stream NFL football on popular streaming devices, including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Google TV, Samsung Smart TV, iPhone, Android, and more. Most regular season NFL broadcasts are regional, which means local fans can watch their team on Sundays on their local CBS or FOX affiliate. The closer you live to your team’s stadium, the more likely you are to get in-market broadcasts on CBS and FOX.

Out-of-market NFL fans can subscribe to NFL Sunday Ticket, or check in on scoring drives with NFL Red Zone. Unfortunately, for the 2022 season, DIRECTV STREAM will only sell NFL Sunday Ticket subscriptions to fans who can prove they aren’t eligible for a satellite antenna. This requirement won’t last beyond the 2022 season.

Several NFL games each week, such as Monday Night Football, Sunday Night Football, and Thursday Night Football, air to a national audience, with no regional restrictions.

The most important channels for watching NFL football

The TV rights to broadcast NFL games are owned by a small handful of media giants, such as Amazon, CBS, ESPN, FOX, and NBC. This makes the channel lineup for watching the NFL straightforward. In the table below, we list the major channels that air NFL games, as well as the live TV streaming services that carry each one. Amazon’s Thursday Night Football game is a “streaming exclusive” game on Amazon Prime. Note that Sling TV carries FOX and NBC in some major markets.
