How to Watch NFL Games for Free Without Cable in 2019: Everything You Need to Know
The 2019 NFL season has officially kicked off, with week one games such as Rams vs. Panthers, Chiefs vs. Jaguars, Giants vs. Cowboys, and Steelers vs. Patriots. There are also two NFL games on Monday Night Football on ESPN: Houston Texans vs. New Orleans Saints, and Denver Broncos vs. Oakland Raiders.
Every week, fans may be wondering a few things: What’s the NFL game schedule? What channel are the NFL games on? And: How can I watch NFL games (online) for free?
It’s easy to watch NFL games if you have cable or another pay TV package. But what if you’ve cut the cord or simply want to watch NFL games online — for free, ideally?
Here’s everything you need to know — and possibly, a few products and services you’ll want to buy or try out during free trials — to watch NFL games during the 2019 season.
Free NFL Live Streams on Mobile Apps
Download the NFL App or the Yahoo Sports mobile app and you’ll be able to live stream many NFL games this season with your phone (or, in some cases, a tablet). Specifically, these apps let you live stream NFL games that are broadcasting locally in your area on Sunday afternoons, and NFL games airing nationally on broadcast networks, such as “Sunday Night Football” on NBC.
Live Streaming TV Packages
Several live-streaming TV services come with local broadcast network TV, as well as the NFL Network and ESPN, in their channel bundles. ESPN is particularly important for NFL fans, because that’s the only place you can watch “Monday Night Football.” If you don’t have cable and want to watch “Monday Night Football” online for free, you can sign up for a free trial of a live-streaming TV service that includes ESPN in packages.
