stream nfl games free week 16

In Week 16, it’s do or die, win or go home—especially if your fantasy league is wrapping up this week. Even if you’ve cut the cord, you can still stream NFL games today, and you’ll definitely want to be keeping an eye on NFL RedZone. And with two big games on NFL Network on Saturday, you’ll want to make sure you have all of your bases covered. Here’s a complete breakdown of the best streaming TV services and a schedule for the rest of the week’s games. Thankfully, all of the services listed below offer a free one-week trial.

1) FuboTV

FuboTV

FuboTV

Cost: $39.99 for your first month and $44.99 per month thereafter (after a 7-day free trial)
Devices: Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Android TV, iOS and Android devices
Local channels: ABC, Fox, NBC, CBS (check local availability here)
ESPN: No
NFL Network: Yes
NFL RedZone: Yes (FuboTV + Sports Plus)

FuboTV specifically caters to sports fans, as you’ll note by the abundance of sports channels in its basic lineup, which includes regional sports networks, Big Ten Network, BeIn Sports, and FS1 and FS2. It’s the best streaming service for international soccer and, with a standard package that includes access to all four major broadcast channels and NFL Network, which you might need to watch Thursday Night Football, it’s a solid choice for streaming NFL games, too, especially if you add NFL RedZone to your package. The major asterisk to FuboTV is that it doesn’t include ESPN, but you’ll get free three-day replay for games and 30 hours of cloud DVR storage. (Here’s the complete FuboTV channels list.)

2) Hulu with Live TV

Cost: $40 per month (after a seven-day free trial)
Hulu devices: Roku, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire Stick and Fire TV, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Nintendo Switch, and iOS and Android devices

Hulu with Live TV has all of the essentials when it comes to streaming NFL games today. Even better, its 50-plus channel lineup includes six ESPN channels, seven if you include SEC Network. (Here’s the complete list of Hulu Live TV channels.) While you won’t be able to add NFL RedZone or NFL Network, Hulu has one thing none of its competitors can match: a massive library of on-demand entertainment you can watch anytime. Here are guides to the best movies, documentaries, anime, and Hulu original series to watch to get you started.

3) Sling TV

Sling TV

Sling Orange + Blue

Cost: $25-$40 per month (after a seven-day free trial)

NFL RedZone: Yes (Sling Blue + Sling Blue Sports “Sports Extra”)

Sling TV is your cheapest option for watching NFL RedZone. You can add it to the Sling Blue or Sling Orange + Blue packages for just $10 per month. You’ll want the latter, which costs $40 per month, if you want to get ESPN channels in addition to regional sports networks and FS1 and FS2. (Here’s a complete guide to Sling TV channels.) The one drawback: When it comes to network channels, Sling TV only offers NBC and Fox (and here again, you’ll need either Sling Blue or Sling Orange + Blue), but the company is currently offering new subscribers a free HD antenna, so you can at least watch some games that way (just not this week).

4) DirecTV Now

By far the most comprehensive option, DirecTV Now is the online version of DirecTV, and it offers five distinct channel packages at prices that are still far below cable. The entry-level Live a Little package ($40 per month) has pretty much everything you need to stream NFL games today, plus cable essentials like CNN, ESPN, and MTV. But you get have a whopping 125 channels if you upgrade to the $75-per-month Gotta Have It package. Worth noting: If you’re an AT&T Unlimited customer, you’ll save $25 a month on any DirecTV Now package. (You can view the full DirecTV Now channels list here.)

5) YouTube TV

YouTube TV offers a simple and compelling package for sports fans.

6) PlayStation Vue
