Most Seahawks games will air on a local FOX or CBS affiliate in the Pacific Northwest. Several live TV streaming services carry KPCQ, FOX 13 in Seattle, including YouTube TV, Hulu, Sling TV Blue, Fubo, and DIRECTV STREAM.

Our top pick for watching the Seahawks live stream this season is Fubo. With Fubo “Sports Lite,” football fans in Seattle can watch both the Seahawks and UW Huskies, plus the platform carries Root Sports Northwest for watching Mariners and Kraken games in-market.

We watched the Seahawks take on the Titans on YouTube TV. According to the “Stats for Nerds” feature on YouTube TV, the resolution for this game was 1280×720@60.

The most important channels for Seahawks fans

The most important channels for Seahawks fans will be CBS, FOX, ESPN, and NBC, and of all these, KPCQ FOX 13 Seattle, the channel with rights for most NFC games through 2033, will be the most important for watching the Seahawks week in and week out. In Seattle, the local FOX affiliate is KPCQ, FOX 13.

The table below documents the live TV streaming providers that carry the most important channels for watching the NFL this season.

The best options for local Seahawks fans in Seattle

Fubo – full local Seahawks coverage, Mariners, Kraken, UW sports

Fubo carries FOX 13 in Seattle for in-market fans, and in addition, you can watch CBS, ESPN, and NBC on the platform. In a move that shows empathy for the rising costs of streaming sports, fuboTV allows NFL fans to pause memberships when the NFL is not in season.

Not only does fuboTV offer the channels you need to watch the Seahawks, it also features Seattle and Portland pro sports through the regional sports network, Root Sports Northwest.

Root Sports Northwest offers coverage of the Seahawks (not actual games), plus most regular season games for these teams:

Finally, with Fubo “Sports Lite,” Washington Husky fans can watch the team’s entire season, including PAC-12 Network games.

Sling TV Blue – budget pick, lacks complete coverage

Seattle is one of the markets that gets FOX through Sling TV Blue, and even though it lacks ESPN, ABC, CBS, and NBC, we add it here as a top pick because of the savings it offers over competitors.

Sling Blue + Sports Extra also offers PAC-12 Network for UW sports, including football.

With a Sling Orange & Blue upgrade, fans can add ESPN, and with an air antenna (cumbersome we realize) ABC, CBS, and NBC can be added in.

DIRECTV STREAM – Full local Seahawks coverage, Mariners, Kraken, and partial UW sports coverage

DirecTV Stream “Choice” is pricey, but it offers the channels you need to watch the Seahawks from Seattle, plus Seattle and Portland pro sports through the regional sports network, Root Sports Northwest.

Root Sports Northwest offers coverage of the Seahawks (not actual games), plus regular season action for these teams:

  • Seattle Mariners
  • Seattle Kraken
  • Portland Trailblazers
  • Gonzaga Bulldogs

Hulu + Live TV – Full local Seahawks coverage, Mariners, Kraken, and partial UW sports coverage

Yes, Hulu + Live TV offers CBS, FOX, ESPN, and NBC, which means full local coverage of the 2023 season for fans in Seattle, and surrounding neighborhoods like Mercer Island.

Although Hulu + Live TV does not carry Root Sports NW or PAC-12 Network, the service is an excellent option for Seahawks fans.

YouTube TV – Full local Seahawks coverage, Mariners, Kraken, and partial UW sports coverage

Yes, YouTube TV is another good option for Seahawks fans. The platform requires you sign up for, or have, a Google account, but it comes with innovative features for watching football, including a mobile only integration with NFL.com fantasy teams.

New for 2023, YouTube TV is the home of NFL Sunday Ticket, which means all the Buckeye fans who want to watch Jaxon Smith Njigba’s rookie year will have to signup for YouTube TV in order to watch the Hawks out-of-market.

The best way to watch Seahawks games on an iPhone

Note: you have to be a Seattle local to take full advantage of NFL+.

If you are a local Seahawks fan who wants to stream games on your phone, NFL+ is by far the best option. For just $40 per season, NFL+ offers full coverage through the Super Bowl.

Keep in mind that NFL+ isn’t a good regional option, only a local option for Seahawks fans in Seattle only (or surrounding suburbs like Mercer Island).

If you don’t live in Seattle

For fans that live far away from the Seattle, but still want to watch the Seahawks every week, you have two options.

  1. Wait for the Seahawks to be on national TV, or hybrid regional games. We estimate these options would cover 3-4 games a year, and the chances the Seahawks are on will increase in the pacific northwest, west and mountain west.
  2. Buy NFL Sunday Ticket through YouTube TV to guarantee access to Seahawks broadcasts every Sunday. This is probably the right move for most out-of-market Hawks fans.

Out-of-market Seahawks fans can watch the team outside the Pacific Northwest with NFL Sunday Ticket, which is now owned by YouTube TV.

Seahawks player to watch – #11

As a huge Ohio State football fan who watched every game of Jaxin Smith Njigba’s college career, I will be keeping an eye out for the Seahawk’s rookie wide receiver to see if he can make an impact in his first season. Smith Njigba missed his almost all of last season with a nagging hamstring injury, so let’s hope he can stay healthy in Seattle.

Watching the Seahawks FAQ

Which cities are in-market for Seahawks games?

The Seahawks will be broadcast the most in the Pacific Northwest, including on KPTV FOX 12 Portland, KCPQ FOX 13 Tacoma, and KLSR-TV FOX 34 Eugene.

NFL TV coverage, whether you’re watching on cable, or through a live TV streaming service, is broadcast based on region. As such, fans in the Pacific Northwest, on the west coast, and in the mountain west will get Seahawks games more than the rest of the country. If you live outside of Oregon and Washington state and want to watch the Seahawks regularly, NFL Sunday Ticket will be worth the money.

What radio station carries Seahawks games?

In Seattle, the Flagship radio station for listening to Seahawks games is 710 AM. To find your local radio station for Seahawks audio, visit the Seahawks Radio Network website. Also keep in mind that NFL+ offers audio of every NFL game throughout the season.
