With DIRECTV STREAM, local Indianapolis Colts fans can watch the Colts games on WTTV CBS 4, as well as on FOX when the Colts play an NFC team. As an added bonus, Colts fans who want to follow the Pacers can do so on DIRECTV STREAM as the platform carries Bally Sports Indiana in its “Choice” package.

Paramount Plus, with its NFL on CBS programming, offers Colts fans an excellent budget option for streaming in-market WTTV CBS 4 broadcasts.

Can I watch the Indianapolis Colts on fuboTV?

We love Fubo TV for streaming NFL action for a few reasons. First, because the app is well designed and easy to setup, fans who are in a rush to get the game on right before kickoff can have Fubo up and running fast. Most major devices are supported, and at the time of setup, it’s intuitive for new users to create a channel guide that focuses on sports, news, or any other topic you’d like to emphasize.

Next, all the major NFL channels are included with Fubo’s base plan. As an added bonus, NBA fans can add NBA League Pass for an additional monthly fee.

Can I watch the Indianapolis Colts on Paramount+?

As our research team compiled our lists of the best live TV streaming options for NFL fans, Paramount+ stood out as an option for in-market AFC fans who want to watch the majority of their team’s regular season action, and save a lot of money doing so. Paramount+ doesn’t have NBC, ESPN, or FOX, but the NFL TV contracts give rights to broadcast most AFC games to CBS / Viacom. Through its NFL on CBS streaming package, Paramount+ carries most of the Colts regular season games regionally. Subscribers can save over $700 per year by choosing the basic Paramount+ package.


Can I watch the Indianapolis Colts on DirecTV Stream?

DirecTV Stream is a good option for in-market Colts fans as they carry ABC, CBS, ESPN, FOX, and NBC. DirecTV Stream is also the only live TV streaming provider to carry the Indianapolis RSN, Bally Sports Indiana, which offers Indianapolis sports fans Pacers games (NBA) as well as Colts action on the NFL channels.

Can I watch the Indianapolis Colts on Hulu + Live TV?

Hulu + Live TV offers subscribers all the most important channels for Colts games and NFL action. This platform works as an option for in-market Colts games. An added bonus of Hulu + Live TV is the bundle the service offers with ESPN+ and Disney+.

ESPN+ has been integrated seamlessly into the Hulu app so users can get the full ESPN+ lineup without having to manage a separate login. As a UFC fan, I find myself using Hulu more and more to watch UFC events. ESPN+ is also the best option by far for out-of-market NHL action, so if you’re a hockey fan, Hulu may be an attractive option.

Unfortunately, Disney+ requires a separate login, so users will need to keep track of a new account if they choose to access the Disney on-demand library.


Can I watch the Indianapolis Colts on YouTube TV?

Especially if you already have a Google account setup, YouTube TV is an excellent option for Colts fans. All the important channels are covered, and the Alphabet owned platform has innovated with features like Stats View and Key Plays, plus they boast a 4K package.

How to watch the Indianapolis Colts out-of-market

If you don’t live in the Indianapolis TV market and want to watch Colts games, you are considered out-of-market. Your best bet this season will be DirecTV Stream.

DirecTV Stream + NFL Sunday Ticket

As the current owner of rights to sell NFL Sunday Ticket, the NFL’s out-of-market premium package, DirecTV Stream plus the additional annual fee for NFL Sunday Ticket offers the best option for streaming out-of-market NFL games. If you don’t live in Indy, but want to stream Colts games, this is your best bet.

Out-of-market Colts fans can stream games by adding NFL Sunday Ticket.TV to their DIRECTV STREAM membership as long as they don’t live in a home that is eligible for a satellite dish. Out-of-market Colts fans who don’t meet the DIRECTV STREAM NFL Sunday Ticket.TV requirements (for 2022 this will basically be single family homes) can still watch the Colts online when they play on national TV, or when they face an NFL team in their region of the country.
