The Green Bay Packers are an NFL team that plays in the NFC North Division. The Packers appear frequently on national TV, and their games cast a wide net across the midwest for regional NFL coverage, so watching the team is easier than some other franchises.
Local Packers fans can watch the bulk of regular season games on WLUK-TV, FOX 11 in Green Bay, or a local FOX affiliate in the upper midwest, but the Packers will also make appearances every season on Monday and Sunday Night Football, as well as on Amazon’s Thursday Night Football broadcast. Our top pick for live streaming Packers games, fuboTV, not only carries CBS, FOX, ESPN, and NBC in the base package, but also includes FS1 and Big Ten Network, which makes the platform an excellent choice for watching the Packers and the Wisconsin Badgers this football season. If you are a Bucks or Brewers fan in addition to the Packers, DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” is the best option.
ABC, ESPN, FOX, CBS, FS1, Big Ten Network, and more.

The best options for local Packers fans
NFL regional TV coverage is fluid, with viewing territories changing from week to week in some markets. Local Green Bay fans can count on seeing the Packers each week, but because the team has a nationwide following, games are also often broadcast to large sections of the country far away from the Green Bay TV market. For example, in week 5 of the 2021 NFL season, the Green Bay at Cincinnati game was on FOX in Illinois, most of Wisconsin and Iowa, almost of of Texas and California, as well as several other major markets across the south.
Can I watch the Packers on fuboTV?
Yes, fuboTV carries the channels you need to watch the Packers in-market, plus FS1 and Big Ten Network in the base package.

Can I watch the Packers on DIRECTV STREAM?
Yes, you can watch the Packers on DIRECTV STREAM in-market. DirecTV Stream Choice is another good option for Packers fans. The platform carries CBS, ESPN, FOX, and NBC, and is the only live TV streaming service that offers Bally Sports Wisconsin.
Bally Sports Wisconsin carries:
- Bucks games
- Brewers games
- Wisconsin Badgers sports
- Marquette athletics
Because of the addition of Bally Sports Wisconsin to its channel lineup, DirecTV Stream is a solution not just for Packers games, but for comprehensive access to Wisconsin sports, both college and pro.

Can I watch the Packers on Hulu?
Yes, you can watch the Packers on Hulu if you live within the viewing territory of the game you want to watch. Hulu + Live TV carries the channels you need to live stream Green Bay Packers games in-market.

Can I watch the Green Bay Packers on YouTube TV?
YouTube TV is another great option for local, in-market, Packers fans. The platform’s mobile app features a fantasy football integration that allows fantasy stats to be viewed in real time as you watch the game. YouTube TV is the most innovative of the live TV streaming services for sports, but a Google account is required to sign up.

Can I watch the Green Bay Packers on Sling TV?
No, you cannot watch the Green Bay Packers on Sling TV in the Green Bay market. Sling TV only carries FOX and NBC in select markets, and Green Bay is not currently one of them. This means that WLUK-TV viewers in Green Bay cannot get Packers games that appear on FOX with Sling.

If you don’t live in Green Bay
Remember, the Packers are on national TV and what I call hybrid national games (which are regional but broadcast to huge sections of the country) quite a bit, so some Packers fans may want to think twice before paying for Sunday Ticket. However, if you want a guarantee that you will get every Packers game, Sunday Ticket is the play.
DirecTV + NFL Sunday Ticket
DirecTV Stream will hold the rights to the NFL Sunday Ticket package, the NFL’s out-of-market solution, for one more year. After the 2022 season, the package becomes a streaming first service. For this year, you still have to show you aren’t eligible for a satellite dish to qualify for NFL Sunday Ticket. If this is you, I’d wait a year to sign-up since this rule is going away with the rise of streaming.
Note: Sunday Ticket is an additional fee ($293.96) over the DirecTV subscription.
Watching the Green Bay Packers FAQ
No, you cannot watch Packers games on Bally Sports Wisconsin. Bally Sports Wisconsin has the TV rights to air in-market Brewers and Bucks games, but not Packers games.
Assuming you are an in-market fan, signup for an account on fuboTV, which in our experience is the fastest live TV streaming service to setup. Make note of your username and password on a piece of paper. If you want to watch on your phone, download the fuboTV app. Here is the iOS link and here is the Android link. Login to the app, continue using a web browser, or download the fuboTV app to your Roku, or smart TV. As you go through the setup process, select the Packers as a team to follow by enabling the “keep up with your favorite teams” feature. After logging in and goin through the setup screens, navigate to the channel list and find FOX, ESPN, CBS, or NBC depending on where the game is airing. Start watching.
Out-of-market fans will need to subscribe to NFL Sunday Ticket, or if the game is a Thursday Night game, watch on Amazon Prime.
