Cowboys vs. Redskins Live Stream on Sling TV

One of the easiest ways to stream this game is through Sling TV, which had some great add-ons this summer to make watching NFL football even easier. That includes watching the Cowboys vs. Redskins live stream.

Sling added NFL Network to its lineup, but it also struck a deal with local Fox and NBC affiliates in major markets, including Dallas and Washington, D.C. If you’re a Sling subscriber, the Fox broadcast will be available to stream (you can also enjoy the other games that air on Fox Sunday football).

Sling TV (review here!) also lets you watch ESPN and ESPN2 live, so when you want to watch the highlights and hear the analysis, you’ll also have some options. The service starts at $20 per month, but as some add-ons if you want extra channels. You can watch Sling on a number of devices, including a Roku and Apple TV.

Sling currently has a deal that scores you a free Roku 2 when you sign up for three months of service.
