A lot of question marks are around the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Philadelphia Eagles, but we’ll get our first look at both teams at the start of the NFL preseason. The Buccaneers vs. Eagles live stream kicks off at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 11.
You can watch this game and all of the other preseason games without having a cable TV subscription. Here’s how to legally enjoy the Buccaneers vs. Eagles live stream.
Buccaneers vs. Eagles Live Stream, On Demand with NFL Game Pass
NFL Game Pass is the reincarnation of the NFL’s Game Rewind streaming service. It was revamped this year in an effort to appeal to more fans looking to watch games online.
Here’s the skinny: You get access to all 256 regular season games on demand and the ability to stream preseason games live, as long as your out of the market. So, if you’re a Bucs fan in Tampa, you can’t stream the game live on Game Pass, but one of the many other options listed below might be able to help you out. Those games not included on the Game Pass NFL preseason live stream, however, will be made available on demand shortly after the game. So, be patient and just enjoy the Buccaneers vs. Eagles live stream a little after the game. Make sure to tell your friends to not text any game spoilers!
Game Pass costs $99 for the season, but you can sign up for a 7-day free trial. Oh, as a Game Pass subscriber, you get access to every NFL game since 2009. Not a bad value add.

Buccaneers vs. Eagles Live Stream on Sling TV
Sling TV — which continues to offer a free, 7-day trial offer — is another option to watch the Buccaneers vs. Eagles live stream, although it’s not exactly live. Some of the bigger national games in the pre-season, like the Colts-Packers matchup on ESPN, is available without any issues on Sling.
Sling TV, a live streaming service from Dish Network (review here), allows subscribers to watch ESPN and ESPN2 live using their internet connection. The service is just $20 a month with no contract, and it includes over 25 other popular channels. You can watch Sling’s offerings on a bevy of devices.
If you live in Tampa or Philly, unfortunately the game will not be carried live on Sling TV as it doesn’t currently carry those local affiliates. However, the game will be airing on NFL Network streaming on Sling TV on replay Friday, August 12 at 4 p.m. ET.
If you’ve never subscribed to Sling before, there is a special offer that might be touchdown of a deal for NFL fans. If you sign up for three months of service, you can get a free Roku 2 for your TV. This is valuable because ESPN has Monday Night Football for another season, meaning those games will be available on Sling, allowing you stream it at a low monthly price.
Watch Buccaneers-Eagles with an OTA antenna
When it comes to the NFL, contracts wit the major broadcast networks still reign supreme. If you want to follow your favorite, hometown team (and still live in that home market, of course), you can’t go wrong with an old-fashioned, but extremely effective, over-the-air antenna.
Both markets are airing the game, for free, in crystal-clear high definition.
