NFL Preseason Streaming
1) Watch NFL Network. If you have a cable package that includes NFL Network, you can use your login credentials and watch their broadcast live from that link, from either your smartphone, tablet, computer or even some smart TVs and streaming devices. (All supported devices are listed on that link.)
2) WatchESPN. Every NFL preseason game airing on ESPN can be viewed from the WatchESPN website once you login with your cable username and password. Or you can stream from their ESPN app.
3) Fox Sports GO. Every game airing on FOX (or any Fox affiliate for that matter) can be streamed from this link. Or stream from their mobile app options.
4) NBC Live. This link provides access to all NFL preseason games airing on NBC. Same deal; you'll need to login first to stream. Alternatively you can also use the NBC app.
5) One more streaming option that many people use is NFL Game Pass. The service isn't free -- on top of any cable option you go with, this option runs $99.99/yr. But it does come with a 7-day free trial and allows you to stream all out-of-market preseason games. (Keep in mind any games airing locally won't be broadcast for you with this service.)
