Cord Cutting Guides, News, and Reviews
You’ve been waiting all day for Sunday night, and you’re ready for some football. But if you don’t have cable, the “Sunday Night Football” broadcast may seem out of your reach. If you’re a cord-cutter, can you watch “Sunday Night Football” without cable? Can you stream it live or catch it over the air?
The answers are yes and yes. Read on to find out how to watch “Sunday Night Football” live, no cable necessary.
Here are a few of our favorite ways to stream Sunday Night Football:
“Sunday Night Football” airs on NBC every Sunday night during the NFL’s regular season. Since we know we’re after a livestream of NBC, the next step is pretty simple: figure out how to watch NBC without cable so we can enjoy “Sunday Night Football” without leaving the cord-cutting fold. Fortunately, there are a few options.
Many of these options are the same type of streaming service: a “skinny bundle,” or live TV streaming service. Live TV streaming services are a bit like cable in that they offer livestreams of popular TV networks. The differences are important, though: Live TV streaming services are cheaper, often include smaller and more affordable channel selections (hence “skinny bundle”), won’t lock you into long-term contracts, and will let you watch on your favorite devices anytime and just about anywhere.
Which of these options have a “Sunday Night Football” livestream? What other football streaming options do we have? Let’s check out the list!
Stream Sunday Night Football with DIRECTV Stream
DIRECTV Stream’s channel lineup is full of great networks and superb live programming, and NFL fans will be happy to see NBC on the list in most markets. DIRECTV Stream is owned by telecom giant AT&T, and it was formerly known as DIRECTV NOW, AT&T TV NOW, and AT&T TV.
Stream Sunday Night Football with Hulu
Hulu’s on-demand streaming service has long been a favorite of cord-cutters, but Hulu also offers a live TV streaming service that boasts a lot of great channels, including (for most viewers) a live feed of the nearest NBC affiliate. That means live content from NBC, including “Sunday Night Football.” Our Hulu + Live TV review has more.
Stream Sunday Night Football with fuboTV
fuboTV is a live TV streaming service with a sports focus. Its lineup includes lots of great channels for watching sports such as soccer, but it also provides access to plenty of our beloved American football. A fuboTV subscription offers a livestream of your local NBC affiliate, which means access to NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” broadcast. Our fuboTV review can give you more information.
Stream Sunday Night Football with Sling TV
Sling TV is another skinny-bundle option, and it includes access to NBC in its Sling Blue package. That means you’ll be able to catch “Sunday Night Football” games, and hopefully watch your team pull out a victory under the lights. It’s one of many reasons a Sling TV subscription is worth it.
Tech giant Google offers a lot of services, so it’s no surprise to see it get in on the live TV streaming game. Subscribing to YouTube TV gets you a great skinny-bundle service that offers a lot of top-notch channels, including NBC and its “Sunday Night Football” broadcast.
Few options for cord-cutters are as wonderful or as underrated as free over-the-air TV. With a cheap antenna and a few minutes of your time, you can set up your TV to receive live broadcasts from stations such as ABC, CBS, Fox, and, yes, NBC. Depending on your location, an indoor antenna could be all you need to watch NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” for free without cable.
“Sunday Night Football” is better on the big screen. So how can you do that as a cord-cutter? Just use one of the services listed above and pair it with a smart TV or streaming device running one of the major streaming platforms.
Video gamers have options too. PlayStation 4 users can stream “Sunday Night Football” on their gaming console with Hulu. Xbox One owners can choose between Hulu and YouTube TV.
There’s no reason to miss seeing your favorite team in action. With the information above, you should have everything you need to watch “Sunday Night Football” without a cable TV subscription.
Nor is there a reason to limit your football consumption to Sunday nights. As a cord-cutter, you can watch NFL games — including all the weekend games on CBS and FOX — without cable online and for free over the air. Thanks to live TV streaming services, you can also catch “Monday Night Football” on ESPN. And don’t even get us started on the NFL playoffs and the biggest game of all: With streaming and over-the-air options all over the place, it has never been easier to watch or stream the Super Bowl without cable.
