For local NFL fans in the Steel City, most Steelers games will air on either KDKA-TV CBS 2 or WPGH-TV FOX 53 Pittsburgh. YouTube TV, Fubo, DIRECTV STREAM, and Hulu + Live TV all offer full coverage of the Steeler’s season for local fans. Outside of Pittsburgh, Steelers fans can add NFL Sunday Ticket to YouTube TV to stream out-of-market games.

Our top pick for watching today’s Steelers game live without cable is Fubo. With Fubo, Steelers fans get access to their local CBS and FOX affiliates, plus AT&T SportsNet Pittsburgh for watching the Pirates and Penguins, and ACC Network for Pitt sports.

Important channels

Because the NFL regular season skews heavily towards regional coverage, Steelers fans will still need access to their local CBS and FOX affiliate to watch the bulk of the action during the regular season, including today’s game. Regional 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. Sunday kickoffs will be available to fans who are located in the Pittsburgh TV market.

National TV games will air on ESPN, NBC, and local affiliates for Thursday Night Football matchups.

Top picks

There are several live TV streaming options for local Pittsburgh fans to watch the Steelers. Our top overall pick is Fubo.

There are a couple reasons we chose Fubo TV for Steelers. First, with CBS, ESPN, and FOX, the platform has all the channels you need to watch in-market regular season action and the NFL playoffs.

But as a bonus, Fubo also carries a strong selection of regional sports networks, including AT&T SportsNet Pittsburgh, which is the home of the Pittsburgh Penguins (NHL) and the Pittsburgh Pirates (MLB). This gives fans the ability to watch all of Pittsburgh’s local pro teams with one streaming service, a feature that only DIRECTV STREAM can match. Fubo is the clear winner for watching in-market Steelers action.

In addition, college football fans can watch the entire Pitt football season on Fubo, except for ESPN+ games.



  • The only downside for Fubo is the service doesn’t yet have TNT, TBS, or CNN.

DIRECTV STREAM offers full local coverage for Steelers fans inside the Steel City. Upgrade to the more expensive “Choice” plan to get in-market Penguins and Pirates games, plus Pitt Sports on ACC Network.


  • Full local Steelers coverage
  • AT&T Sportsnet Pittsburgh
  • Pitt sports


  • No 4K streaming
  • User experience lags behind competition

In-market Steelers fans can watch games that air on KDKA-TV CBS 2 Pittsburgh with Paramount+.

Although a Paramount+ subscription won’t offer full NFL coverage, including for the Steelers, the NFL TV contract gives CBS affiliates the rights to most AFC games, including playoff games.

If you want to save over $700 a year over most competitors, and simply head to the bar when you can’t get the game on Paramount+, then this app is a great bargain.



  • Missing key NFL channels

Hulu + Live TV is another platform to consider here. All of the requisite NFL channels are included, and with the ESPN+ and Disney+ bundle, a Hulu + Live TV subscription offers a nice selection of live sports and on-demand content. This is the way to go if you have kids at home who would appreciate the Disney+ option.


  • Full local Steelers coverage


  • We have had issues ordering UFC PPV on Hulu
  • No 4K

YouTube TV is one of the most innovative live TV streaming services, especially for watching football. The Key Plays and Stats View features are best in class, and all the important NFL channels are included.


  • Full local Steelers coverage
  • 4K option
  • NFL Sunday Ticket upgrade


  • The downside with YouTube TV is setup is slower if you don’t have an existing Google account.


The Steelers, like the Cowboys and Raiders, have a national following. This means there will always be a large contingent of football fans looking to watch the Steelers across the country, from San Diego to New York City.

These out-of-market NFL fans can watch the team on NFL Sunday Ticket, which is now available on YouTube TV. There are two options for watching the Steelers out-of-market with YouTube TV:

  • Signup for NFL Sunday Ticket with a YouTube TV subscription for $349 per season, or;
  • Signup for NFL Sunday Ticket on a la carte through YouTube TV for $449 per season.

Steelers player to watch – #97

It would be easy to list TJ Watt, the Steelers star LB and brother of future NFL hall of famer JT Watt in this spot, but since I am a football nerd, I am taking a slightly different path. The Steeler player I will be watching is #97 Cameron Heyward, the former Ohio State Buckeye, who will be making $22,000,000 this season as a defensive end for the Steelers. When I watch the Steelers, I will be focused on Heyward’s production, especially his QB pressures and sack totals.

Which cities are in-market for Steelers games?

Some cities outside of the Pittsburgh TV market will regularly get Steelers games each week on their local FOX and CBS affiliates. We estimate that these cities will be in-market for Steelers broadcasts, which means fans in these area will not have to buy NFL Sunday Ticket to watch the Steelers:

Bedford, PA
State College, PA
Steubenville, OH
Wheeling, OH
Morgantown, WV
Indiana, PA

Which radio station carries Steelers games?

WDVE-FM (102.5) and sister station WBGG-AM (970) are the Flagship radio stations for listening to Steelers football from Pittsburgh. For a list of radio stations across Pennsylvania that carry Steelers games, visit the Steeler Radio Network website.

Can I watch the Steelers on Sling TV?

Sling TV does not carry CBS, FOX, NBC, or FOX in Pittsburgh, which means the service is not a good option for Steelers fans. For a good budget option to stream Steelers games, check out Paramount+ (for CBS games), and NFL+ for full local coverage on mobile.
