Watching the Cincinnati Bengals FAQ

Can I watch the Cincinnati Bengals on my laptop?

Yes, you can watch the Bengals on your laptop on most web browsers, including Chrome, Safari, and Edge Browsers. In fact, it’s often easiest to signup for live TV streaming services using your laptop. With a platform like DIRECTV, simply go to the signup page and create an account to begin streaming content on your laptop.

Can I watch the Cincinnati Bengals on Peacock?

Not every game, no. Most Bengals games will air on CBS or FOX. However, when the Bengals appear on NBC’s Sunday Night Football, you can watch the Bengals on the Peacock app.

Can I watch the Cincinnati Bengals game on Sling TV?

Yes, but it requires buying and installing an air antenna for most games. Sling TV doesn’t carry CBS. In order to get CBS broadcasts on Sling TV you will have to signup for Sling and then buy an air antenna. When the Bengals are on Monday Night Football, you can watch the game on ESPN on Sling Orange with no air antenna.

Can I watch out-of-market Cincinnati Bengals games on Paramount+

No. The territorial viewing restrictions for the NFL’s regional broadcasts apply to Paramount+. You can live stream Bengals games in-market on Paramount+, but not-out-of-market.

Why can’t I watch the Cincinnati Bengals game?

The number one reason you can’t watch the Bengals game is you reside outside of the viewing territory. Most NFL games are regional broadcasts. So, for example, if you live in Los Angeles, the local CBS affiliate will air the Chargers game, not the Bengals game.

How can I watch the Cincinnati Bengals game today for free?

If you are in-market for the game, or if the Bengals are on national TV, you can watch the game for free by signing up for a live TV streaming service in a free trial. See our live TV streaming services page for the latest free trials.

Another option is the NFL app. For national and prime time Bengals games, you can watch free of charge on mobile just by downloading the app. This makes the NFL app a rare good bargain in an increasingly expensive streaming landscape. The NFL app is available for both Android and iOS users.
