Fall is finally here and that brings with it cooler temperatures, colorful leaves, and weekends full of football. With Sling TV (free trial) you can follow your favorite team without being committed to your cable company. If you want to watch NFL games on Sling TV, here’s how.

Where to Catch The Big Game On Sling TV

Sling offers NFL games on:

  • FOX (in some markets)
  • NBC (in some markets)
  • ESPN (in all markets)

To get local games or games aired on CBS (typically most AFC games) you’ll need an over-the-air antenna.

The best NFL coverage on Sling TV comes with a Sling Blue subscription plus the Sports Extra add-on, which gets you games broadcast on NBC in select markets too. However, if you want to watch Monday Night Football you’ll need ESPN, which is only available with a Sling Orange subscription.

As of this writing, the NFL has blocked Sling TV access to the NFL Network and NFL RedZone but Sling TV is working to bring these channels back.

Depending on your exact subscription and whether or not you use an over-the-air antenna, with Sling TV you can stream some local Sunday afternoon games (FOX), some Thursday Night Football, Sunday Night Football, and Monday Night Football.

*Note: Local channel coverage is not available in every market, so be sure to check your local availability for your favorite team.

What You Need to Watch NFL Games on Sling TV

To watch NFL games on Sling TV, you’ll need:

  • Reliable Internet Connection
  • Latest Sling TV app
  • Sling TV subscription
  • Compatible Device
  • Over-the-air Antenna

If you want access to NBC games, FOX games, and Monday Night Football, you’ll need to have a Sling Blue + Orange subscription with the Sports Extra add-on. If you want to get local CBS games, you’ll need an over-the-air antenna as well. Sling TV often runs promotions that include the over-the-air antenna for free when you prepay your subscription. Terms for these promotions change regularly so you’ll need to check before you sign-up.
