NFL football finally returns on August 3 with the annual Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio. While the NFL regular season doesn’t start until Thursday, September 7, there’s an entire month of preseason games to watch and build up the excitement.
The NFL preseason is an annual period where NFL teams play each other in not-for-the-record exhibition games before the actual season. This year marks the third consecutive NFL preseason that there are 49 games set to be played. Tonight’s Hall of Fame Game where the New York Jets face off against the Cleveland Browns is just an appetizer before three weeks full of football that concludes with a nationally broadcast game between the Houston Texans and New Orleans Saints.
Preseason games have a slightly different broadcasting system than regular season games, so here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the 2023 NFL Preseason at home. Keep reading for the full preseason schedule and where to stream NFL games online this year.
How to Watch 2023 NFL Preseason Games Online
For the most part, NFL preseason games air on each football team’s local TV affiliate network or the NFL Network. In 2023, NBC, FOX, CBS, ESPN, and Amazon Prime Video will also nationally broadcast one game each this month.
While you’ll need a TV plan with NFL Network or an NFL+ subscription to get the most live coverage, a good live TV streaming service like Fubo TV, Sling TV, and DirecTV will let you stream most of the 2023 NFL preseason at home.
With Fubo’s sports-focused live TV streaming service, you’ll have nearly every channel you’ll need to watch the NFL preseason and regular season. Every preseason game broadcast nationally or on NFL Network will also be available to stream on Fubo, which comes with 1,000 hours of cloud DVR storage and a seven-day free trial.
One of the most affordable ways to watch the 2023 NFL Preseason live is with Sling TV. Right now, there is a Sling TV deal offering 50% off your first month — bringing the comprehensive Orange + Blue package down to just $30. Sling TV comes with 50 hours of free cloud-based DVR recording space, perfect for recording all the season’s top NFL matchups and FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Along with access to all the regular Hulu content, ESPN+, and Disney Plus, Hulu + Live TV includes local channels, NFL Network, and ESPN as well as a huge lineup of other live TV channels such as FOX and FS1. Unlimited DVR storage is also included with your subscription.
