The NFL is one of the most cord-cutter friendly sports in the U.S. during the regular seasons. It is easy to watch the NFL without cable. So, it comes as no surprise that it’s just as easy to watch the NFL Playoffs without a cable TV subscription.
In fact, every game of the 2020 NFL playoffs (2019 Season) is available on ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox using an over the air antenna. So, there is no need to have a cable subscription to enjoy NFL football this postseason. All of those channels are available using a TV antenna. If you want to set one up, check out my guide on choosing a TV antenna. However, there are now several ways to stream local TV channels.
Streaming the NFL Playoffs
Several streaming services stream local ABC, NBC, FOX, and CBS.
Hulu Live TV: This service streams live local channels in most markets in the country. Hulu has local TV network availability across much of the U.S. and provides this handy tool to see which channels are available in your area: Hulu Live TV Channels by Zipcode. I also break down which local networks are available in a given market in my Hulu Live TV review. They also offer a free trial for you to see which local channels are available.
I put the NFL Playoff schedule later in the article so you can make sure you’ll be able to watch the game using this service. Hulu also provides ESPN. This is handy for the AFC Wildcard game that airs on both ABC and ESPN. It’s a way to watch the game if you can’t get ABC.
AT&T TV NOW – This is another service that offers a way to stream live TV. You can check my review of AT&T TV Now to see which channels are available in your area. You can also check out this 1-week free trial to ensure you have access to the channels you need.
You can also check out this post on streaming local channels for other viewing options.
I you are still having trouble finding a service to watch your team due to blackouts, check out this sports blackout workaround.
