Bears vs. Patriots Live Stream on Sling TV

Sling TV came out with a roar and it continues to improve. And that’s good news for NFL fans.

Some recent updates make it especially easier for taking in NFL Preseason games on Sling, which still has a 7-day trial offer up for grabs. As part of its Sling Blue package, subscribers now have access to NFL Network live stream. That means they have access to all preseason games plus plenty of pro football highlights, news and analysis.

Local games watched in-market are still going to be blacked out (sorry Bears fans in Chicago), but a good chunk of the games are going to be available on the newly added channel.

Sling now also offers live local broadcasts from NBC and Fox affiliates in major markets. This option for the Bears vs. Patriots live stream is available in Chicago, but not in Boston, where the CBS affiliate is airing the game. CBS currently doesn’t offer a friendly streaming option, but doesn’t broadcast its signal over the air for free, which we’ll touch on below.

Sling TV, starting at $20 per month, is ideal for cord-cutting sports fans. You get access to ESPN and ESPN 2, in addition to channels that are typically only found through cable TV subscriptions. Check out our Sling TV review here.

If you like what you get, Sling is running a deal where you can land a free Roku 2 when you sign up for three months of service. What are you waiting for? Sign up for the free Sling TV trial today.

Bears vs. Patriots Live Stream, On Demand with NFL Game Pass

NFL Game Pass

Another option for the Bears vs. Patriots live stream is a new service called NFL Game Pass. For $99/season, NFL Game Pass, which replaces the old Game Rewind service, gives you access to all of the preseason games and all 256 regular season games on-demand.

Now, you can’t watch games that are broadcast in your market, so if you’re a Bears fan in Chicago, the game won’t be available live. It will, however, be available on-demand once the game wraps up. And as an added bonus, the league is giving you on-demand access to all regular season and playoff games dating back to the 2009 season.

Once the regular season kicks off, the Game Pass NFL live stream let’s you watch all 256 games on-demand.

Enjoy a 7-day free trial.
