  • From NY Metro, CT, and NJ. Watch every Giants game, including the playoffs, with Fubo, YouTube TV, Hulu + Live TV, or DIRECTV STREAM.
  • Out-of-market. Watch nationally televised games, or add NFL Sunday Ticket to a YouTube TV membership (view pricing)

For the diehard NY sports fans who watch all their local teams, like the Yankees, Knicks, Rangers, Nets, and Giants football, we recommend DIRECTV STREAM “Choice.” With DIRECTV STREAM “Choice,” New York sports fans can watch the Giants on FOX, CBS, and NBC, and also get access to ESPN, the YES Network, MSG, SportsNet NY, and even the Big Ten Network, all on one platform.

Important channels

The most important channels for Giants fans in the NY area will be WCBS-TV CBS 2 NY (usually the home channel of the Jets) and WNYW-TV FOX 5 NY. On occasion, NY Giants games will also air nationally on ESPN, NBC, and Amazon Prime.

Note: Sling TV carries FOX and NBC, but only in select markets.

Top picks

Yes, local Giants fans can watch in-market NY Giants games on Fubo from the preseason all the way through Super Bowl LVIII.

fuboTV carries the requisite channels for watching regional and national Giants games, and if you are a local fan, you can stream Thursday Night Football on a local affiliate rather than toggling over to Amazon Prime. Fubo also carries MSG Network which gives NY sports fans access to Rangers (NHL) and Knicks (NBA) games.

Unfortunately, Fubo lacks YES Network, which means Yankee fans can’t stream the Bronx Bombers on Fubo.

For college football fans, Fubo does carry the full lineup of channels needed to stream Penn State and Rutgers, but the lack of YES Network means there will be gaps in Syracuse coverage when the Orange play in an ACC on RSN game.

Read our Fubo sports review.


Sling TV only affords partial coverage of the Giant’s new season and lacks CBS, which means no Super Bowl LVIII.

However, you can watch the NY Giants on Sling TV in-market when the team appears on ABC, FOX, ESPN, or NBC (although an upgrade to Sling Orange is required to get access to ESPN).

Sling TV Blue alone will not get you access to ESPN, so Monday Night Football is out, but in the NY market, fans get the local FOX and NBC affiliate with a Sling TV Blue membership. CBS can be added with a special air antenna.

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.


In addition to carrying the channels you need to watch the Giants on Sundays, DIRECTV STREAM is the only live TV streaming service that carries the YES Network, which is the home of Yankees baseball and Nets basketball.

DIRECTV STREAM also carries MSG and SportsNet NY for watching Knicks and Mets games.

By upgrading to DIRECTV STREAM “Choice,” college football fans in NY can watch all Syracuse, PSU, and Rutgers games.

If DVR is a priority, DIRECTV STREAM has recently rolled out unlimited DVR for all packages, however, some in the media have been critical of the fine print.


Yes, you can stream in-market NY Giants games, as well as national broadcasts, with Hulu + Live TV.

Although Hulu lacks YES Network and MSG, NY sports fans can stream the Mets on Sportsnet NY with Hulu + Live TV. One of the reasons I continue to use Hulu is the ability to watch UFC events directly on the app without the need to toggle to the ESPN app.


YouTube TV is an option for in-market Giants fans as well. I’ve written several times on this site about how impressive YouTube TV is as a platform for watching sports, and NFL in particular.

The service carries the most important channels for watching NFL action, has a 4K package, and even a mobile feature for fantasy football fans.

The downside is you need a Google account to start using YouTube TV, and the service lacks the YES Network, and MSG.

NY Giants player to watch – #99

Defensive End Leonard Williams is the highest paid player on the Giants team, earning more than $30,000,000. Williams was a high 4-star recruit in high school, and played his college ball at USC. I like to focus in on high salary cap players to see if they make the impact expected of them. Can Williams live up to the legacy of famous Giants lineman like Michael Strahan? Only time will tell.

Out-of-market

If you don’t live in the NY area, and want to watch the Giants, you are considered an out-of-market fan.

The only way to guarantee full coverage of the Giants out-of-market is to signup for NFL Sunday Ticket with YouTube TV.

FAQ

How can I watch the NY Giants game from Miami?

NY Giants fans in Miami are considered out-of-market Giants fans, and therefore the best bet for watching every Giants game from Miami will be NFL Sunday Ticket. New for this season, YouTube TV has the rights to NFL Sunday Ticket. You can stream regular season Giants games on Sunday Ticket from Miami with a YouTube TV subscription for $349 for the season.

How can I watch the NY Giants on my iPhone?

If you are a local Giants fan and live within the NYC TV market, the best way by far to watch the Giants on your phone is with NFL+, which offers full coverage of the Giants and Jet’s seasons for just $40 per year. In addition, all of the live TV streaming services listed above offer an iOS app for streaming sporting events, including Giants games. Also check out our top picks for watching NFL games on mobile devices.

How can I watch the NY Giants game today for free?

If you are in-market for the game, or if the Giants 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 Giants 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.
