To watch or stream any NFL playoff game, use this guide which is broken down into 3 categories: Wildcard Weekend, Divisional Playoffs and Conference Championships.

Wildcard Weekend

TV: ESPN/ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX

All wildcard weekend games will air on local TV channels. Each major channel will get a game a piece. You can watch any of these channels from home if your cable or satellite package includes local channels (almost all do). Or you can pick up all these channels with a digital antenna (rabbit ears) hooked up to your coax cable on your TV for free. Most any bar, restaurant or dine in that has a TV will be airing these games as well, if you want to watch out of the house.
