I tune in to Bears games for one simple reason, to watch Justin Fields, the Bears star QB. Although he was forced to run last season due to a lack of support at skill positions, Fields is a talented passer and has predicted he will throw for 4,000 yards this season.
As someone who watched every game Fields played at Ohio State, I have confidence he will make this happen, but it doesn’t look like this season will be the year. The Bears have struggled mightily thus far, but hope springs eternal in the Windy City.
You can live-stream the Chicago Bears on a host of different devices, including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Fire Stick, Google TV, iPhone, Samsung Smart TV, and more.
Although several live TV streaming services carry must have local affiliates like WFLD FOX 32 Chicago, as well as CBS 2 Chicago, our top pick for watching the Bears, Fubo, carries FOX, CBS, ABC, ESPN, FS1, and Big Ten Network, all in the base package. As a bonus, Fubo offers NBC Sports Chicago in 4K for watching the Bulls, White Sox, and Blackhawks in-market, plus Marquee Sports Network for Cubs games.

What channel is the Bears game on today?
The most important channels for Bears fans will be CBS, WFLD-TV FOX 32 Chicago, ESPN, and NBC, and of all these, FOX, the channel with rights for most NFC games through 2033, will be the most important for watching the Bears. Bears games will also appear on Amazon Prime, and ESPN+.
Can I watch Chicago Bears game on Fubo?
Yes, you can watch the Bears on Fubo with full local coverage in the Chicago TV market.
- Fubo carries CBS, FOX, ESPN and NBC
- One of the features I like best with a Fubo subscription is it’s easy to pause a membership when the NFL is in off-season and start back up when the leaves start to fall. This offers NFL fans considerable savings.
- As an added bonus, Fubo TV carries NBC Sports Chicago, which is the regional sports network that carries the Bulls (NBA), Blackhawks (NHL), and the White Sox (MLB)
- Fubo also carries the Marquee Sports Network, which is the regional sports network for the Cubs (MLB)
- Watch Big Ten football and Notre Dame football in 4K
- Lags behind competition in DVR storage
- Missing TNT and TBS

Can I watch the Chicago Bears on Sling TV?
Sling TV Blue will be missing Bears games that air on CBS from the Chicago market, and has major gaps in coverage beyond CBS in markets surrounding Chicago.
Note: Sling TV only carries FOX and NBC in select markets, and does not have ESPN. CBS is only available with a streaming antenna.
However, Chicago is one of the markets that Sling TV offers both FOX and NBC in. This means a lot of Bears regular season games will be available on Sling Blue, and if the team plays on Sunday Night Football, Sling will have the game as well on NBC.
Even though Sling Blue doesn’t offer total NFL coverage, we recommend it here because, with the cost of streaming services rising, some fans will want a more budget friendly option.

Can I watch the Chicago Bears on DIRECTV STREAM?
Yes, with CBS, ESPN, FOX, and NBC, DirecTV Stream carries the channels you will need to watch the Bears play live, with full coverage from the Chicago TV market.
For an added monthly price, DirecTV Stream also carries NBC Sports Chicago, which adds value for Chicago fans who want to watch all their hometown teams.

Can I watch the Chicago Bears on Hulu + Live TV?
Yes, Hulu + Live TV carries the channels you need to watch the Bears when they are on national or regional TV.
Hulu carries NBC Sports Chicago, but not the Marquee Sports Network, which means baseball fans on the south side will be happy, but not on the north side.

Can I watch the Chicago Bears on YouTube TV?

YouTube TV is an innovator in the sports streaming space. The only downside if users are required to sign-up for a Google account.

- NFL Sunday Ticket upgrade
- NFL in 4K on FOX
- Excellent Big 10 football coverage

Can I stream Bears gams on NFL+?
How to Watch the Chicago Bears out-of-market
The 506 Sports regional maps teach us that, while it’s not the slam dunk that FOX 32 is, the Bears are on a lot in Illinois, northern Indiana, parts of Iowa, Minnesota, and the Dakotas.
Several times every season, they will also be on national TV. As such, if you live in the midwest, it might not be worth the money to pay for an NFL Sunday Ticket package. If you live farther away, and love the Bears, you might want to give this premium out-of-market feature a try.
YouTube TV + NFL Sunday Ticket
Out-of-market football fans will be glad to learn that the old NFL Sunday Ticket “satellite dish rule” is no longer now that YouTube TV has the rights to NFL Sunday Ticket.
If you want to watch the Bears out-of-market, the process is as simple as adding Sunday Ticket to your YouTube TV account.
Note: Sunday Ticket is an additional fee ($349.00) over the cost of the YouTube TV subscription.
Watching the Chicago Bears FAQ
One important viewing note for cord cutting Bears fans: your zip code will determine which regular season games you get access to. The regional TV maps are always shifting from week to week, and the NFL doesn’t publicize exactly which games any given market will get on Sundays. What we do know is that the Chicago metro area will always get the Bears games on WFLD FOX 32 Chicago, or occasionally on CBS 2 if the Bears are playing an AFC opponent.
Other metros like: Peoria, IL, Springfield, IL and South Bend, IN will get the Bears on their local FOX affiliate, but the farther you venture from Chicago, the more likely you will be “out-of-market” and regional coverage will show a different team.
