Bills vs. Redskins Live Stream on Sling TV

Some recent updates to Sling TV — one of our favorite services for cord cutters — is making it easier to enjoy live sports, including the Bills vs. Redskins live stream.

Sling has streaming rights to live feeds of Fox and NBC affiliates in major markets, and it just so happens that the NBC affiliate in Washington, D.C., is broadcasting this game. There are no blackout rules, either.

In Buffalo, the story is a little different. That market’s ABC affiliate is airing the game, which could mean that it shows up on ESPN, ESPN 2 or ESPN 3, all of which are also available on Sling TV.

Also this summer, Sling added NFL Network to its robust lineup of channels. While you won’t be able to watch this game on the league’s network, you can certainly re-watch the highlights and receive analysis.

Interested yet? Sling TV costs $20 per month and goes up with extra channels. Read our review and if you’re interested, sign up for a free trial. You can still score a free Roku 2 if you really like the service.


Bills vs. Redskins Live Stream On Demand with NFL Game Pass

NFL Game Pass

A guaranteed of watching the Bills vs. Redskins live stream is subscribing to NFL Game Pass, a new service that replaces the league’s old Game Rewind service. For the first time in league history, you can stream every single NFL preseason game.

Game Pass does have blackout rules, so if you want to watch the Bills in Buffalo, you can only stream the game on demand once the live game wraps up. Not a huge deal.

Game Pass is a little more expensive at $99 for the season, but that also gives you access to all 256 regular season games this season on demand. As a bonus, the NFL is also letting you stream on demand every single game dating back to the 2009 season. If you’re interested, signup for a 7-day free trial.

In Buffalo, WKBW, the ABC affiliate is airing the game. WHAG, the NBC affiliate in Washington, D.C., is broadcasting the game.
