How to Watch Monday Night Football Without Cable
Gone are the days of simply switching channels to catch all of your favorite NFL games, and it can be hard to keep track of which games are streaming on which platforms. For example, Prime Video is the streaming home for Thursday Night Football, while Sunday Night Football games are available on NBC and Peacock, and some Monday Night Football games will simulcast on ESPN+.
That said, while there are different ways to watch football games from your TV, phone, laptop or computer, the price will vary depending on which platform that you choose.
With ESPN+, you’ll get access to football and more for $9.99 a month (or bundle with Disney+ and Hulu). Watch the NFL, college football, soccer, MLB, NBA, NHL, UFC 279, PGA Tour, Top Rank, PLL Playoffs, Premiere League, La Liga, cricket and other sporting events on ESPN+. You can also binge dozens of sports series and TV shows, and original content such as PPV fights, and the entire 30 for 30 series, which includes The Captain, Tom Brady: Man in the Arena, Al Davis vs. The NFL, Vick, Be Like Water, Breakaway, More Than An Athlete with Michael Strahan, and Our Time Baylor Basketball.
The Rams and 49ers game earlier this year streamed live on ESPN+, but Monday’s game will broadcast on ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes. The game will begin at 8:15 p.m. ET/5:15 p.m. PT. Monday Night Countdown pre-game coverage will begin at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT.
Other Ways to Watch Monday Night Football Without Cable
There are several other affordable options to watch sports and more. For example, FuboTV, Vidgo, Direct TV Stream and Sling TV start at around $20-$70 for live and on-demand streaming, including ESPN and other sports channels, in addition to DVR recording.
You’ll get a free trial Direct TV Stream and Fubo TV, which means that you can watch football games for free for up to a week. You can also watch games on YouTube TV and NFL+, the latter of which starts at $4.99/month (or $39.99/year) after a 7-day free trial. With NFL+, football fans can watch or listen to games live and on-demand, plus enjoy recaps and more.
