Football Season is Back!

It’s that time of year; summer ending, kids going back to school, changing of the leaves, and football being back. Despite the games being played behind closed stadiums due to the pandemic, there are a number of different ways to watch thanks to the recent rise in several streaming services.

Since NFL games are played on a variety of different channels (ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, ESPN, and NFL Network) viewers will need access to all those channels to be able to watch all games. For the ones who want to be able to catch every game, your best options are either Youtube TV or FuboTV, both costing $65 per month. With that you get live access to all the previously mentioned channels, the ability to split screens into separate games, as well as DVR features to record games you can’t watch. Fantasy football fans that like to have NFL Redzone can add it for an additional $11/mo.

Many other streaming services also carry major network channels and ESPN, but lack NFL Network and Redzone. These include Hulu Live TV and AT&T TV Now (formerly DirectTV Now).

If you live in a big city, a decent budget option might be Sling Blue for $30/mo. With that the only channels you’re missing are ESPN (so no Monday Night Football) and CBS, which broadcasts mostly AFC games. You’ll still get Fox and NBC, but only in select markets so if you don’t live in a big city, Sling Blue might not be for you.
