How to Watch NFL Season from Anywhere


The National Football League or the NFL is back. Last season, the Philadelphia Eagles won their first ever Super Bowl by defeating the New England Patriots. Who do you think will win this season?

Anyways, if you live in the US and have a television, then you can watch plenty of NFL games for free with your cable subscription. But if you're a cable cutter, well, you have plenty of options too.

Option 1 - is the most popular, NFL Game Pass - which offers the live telecast of all the 256 games.

Option 2 - NFL has contracts with four American networks - FOX, ESPN, CBS and NBC - which have rights to specific day games only.

Option 3 - Free streaming service like TWITCH, Amazon Prime and NFL official app - which will telecast some Thursday Night games this year.

We’ll get to each of these option in a bit, but in general, if you are not sure when matches are happening and who is broadcasting them, well, your best bet is to download the NFL Mobile app (it’s on both Android and iOS). And shows you the list of all the upcoming games and where you can stream them.

NFL Game Pass

In general, if you want to watch all 256 NFL games this year but don’t have a US cable subscription, NFL Game Pass may be your best option. It’s a bit expensive and should cost you $200 - $250 for year but comes with a 7-day free trial.

You can access NFL Game Pass from anywhere in the world, but the US version does not allow live streaming, and some games will be blacked out in Europe as well. So, if you live in US or Europe and want to live stream all NFL games:

  • Get Smart DNS Proxy VPN or Smart DNS
  • Connect to a non-US, non-Europe location like Australia
  • Go to Game Pass and sign up for Season Plus
  • Make sure you see - 24/7 Live NFL Network Stream
  • Sign up for the service and enjoy live streaming on all games.

TV Services

If Game Pass is too expensive for you and you already have access to US live TV service such as - Hulu, YouTube TV, Sling TV, and DirecTV etc., then why not just use them instead.

Like we said before, the NFL has contracts with CBS, ESPN, FOX and NBC. In general, CBS broadcasts the afternoon games.

For example, if you have a subscription for both Sling TV and CBS, so you can use them instead.

To watch:

  • Connect to a US server using Smart DNS Proxy VPN
  • Go to Sling TV and sign up (you’ll need an American credit card, which if you don’t have, you can watch one of our other videos to see how)
  • Once you log in, you can enjoy your favorite matches.

Similarly, if you CBS All Access:

  • Connect to a US server using the same Smart DNS Proxy VPN
  • Go to CBS and sign in
  • Click on the game you want to watch.

Now, these websites might all ask you where you’re browsing from, which you can easily change using the inspect element workaround. Again, we have a dedicated video on that, so check out that. All useful links can be found under this video on YouTube.

Online streaming services

Finally, Twitch, Amazon Prime is offering 11 Thursday Night Football games this year for free. To watch:

  • Similarly, get Smart DNS Proxy VPN
  • Connect to a US server
  • Head to or Amazon Prime
  • Enjoy these games!

Those are some of the ways to watch the upcoming NFL season without a cable subscription. Due to the length of the season, there are many options to watch them online which make it a bit confusing. Hopefully this video helped you to find the best package for you.
