With the 2022-23 NFL season now in full swing, it is time to break out your game day jerseys and cookout gear. No matter which team you will be rooting for, you will want to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the action. But, knowing which streaming service to turn to can be overwhelming. However, with so many options available, affordable choices for football viewing are now more accessible than ever. This list will help to break it down so you can choose the best solution to catch your team winning the game!

Get a TV Antenna

While it may feel a bit old school, TV antennas are still a thing and give you the ability to have access to major networks. This means you can watch the NFL playoffs without having cable. All you have to do is make a one time purchase for the antenna and enjoy television after the antenna is in place. These antennas generally have a mileage range, some that go up to over 100 miles. Depending on your location, you may be able to tune into your local CBS channels or a FOX affiliate channel. Since these are digital antennas, you will also get access to other local channels as well. Antennas don’t have to be expensive and you can find some for as low as $25.99. 

Streaming NFL Games

Streaming services have now made NFL coverage more accessible than ever. But, navigating through all of these options can be a challenge. It is important to note that many streaming services might not offer full NFL coverage. You will want to further investigate what coverage is provided for that specific service to determine if it meets your needs. But, almost all streaming services have the capability to be used on smart TVS, phones, and tablets. Also, many streaming services provide free trials, especially around the time of the NFL playoffs.

Sling TV

Sling is one of the most affordable streaming services available today. Plans are customizable and start around $17.50 per month. Sling Orange allows you to have access to ESPN, ESPN 2, and ESPN 3. The Sling Blue provides you with access to FOX. However, if you stick to one of their basic packages, you can still add a sports package to your checkout. This would provide you with NFL Red Zone, as well as other sports channels.

Hulu + Live TV

Hulu + Live TV is currently set at $69.99 per month. But, you get plenty of bang for your buck. With this service, you will have access to NFL live streams that are put out by CBS, FOX, ESPN, and the NFL Network. You will also have a free subscription to ESPN+ included with your membership. Besides their other channels that will be made available to you, you will have access to Disney+ as well.

Amazon Prime Video

Amazon Prime Video will be home to Thursday Night Football and will be streaming all of the 15 regular-season games. This will be available to Prime members only. As of this time, no other additional purchase is required. A Prime membership can be purchased monthly or annually, with monthly membership costing $14.99.


If you are planning on only watching football games on your mobile device, then NFL+ might be the perfect option for you. The service allows users to stream NFL games through their mobile devices. There is a large selection of live games to choose from. However, keep in mind that this is exclusive to mobile devices. But, you may be able to screencast onto your television depending on what the capabilities are of the mobile device you are using. A subscription to NFL+ costs $4.99 per month.

Split The Bill

If you have roommates, family members, or multiple people that use the same streaming services as you, you might want to consider splitting the bill. Many streaming services allow you to create multiple profiles, as well as have multiple profiles viewing at the same time. Splitting the cost among housemates, family members, or friends can help you save your wallet during NFL season.
