Plus, it includes access to 2022 Sunday NFL Ticket Max, which lets you stream any football game, regardless of where you live. You can also watch up to 8 Sunday games simultaneously.

Sling TV is a live-TV streamer. For the NFL season, Sling’s “Orange & Blue” tier will get you almost all of the networks you need to watch every game — including ABC and ESPN — and at a relative bargain of $50 a month. Note: The “Orange & Blue” tier will not get you CBS games, or Amazon Prime Video’s “Thursday Night Football.”

ESPN will simulcast some of ESPN’s “MNF” games, but it includes access to very few live NFL games. During the 2022 NFL season, ESPN will exclusively broadcast one single game: Denver Broncos vs. Jacksonville Jaguars on October 30. (The game will take place at Wembley Stadium in London at 9: 30 a.m. ET.)

This means that if you want to stream every game of the season, then you will need to have access to ESPN at least for October. The streaming service costs $7 per month and does not offer a free trial.

ESPN , $7 monthly

Another way you can gain access to ESPN is through the Disney bundle, which includes Disney , Hulu’s most basic ad-supported plan and ESPN for $14 a month. If you’re wondering what else you can watch with the Disney bundle, check out our guide on what to watch on Disney and what to watch on Hulu this month.
