In the third week of the NFL Preseason, we have a matchup between to Midwestern teams that are hoping to find some rhythm this season and make a splash in their respective divisions. Kansas City takes on Chicago at Soldier Field. We’re here to help you watch the Chiefs vs. Bears live stream online.
Here’s how you can watch the Chiefs vs. Bears live stream, which kicks off at 1 p.m. EST. Saturday, Aug. 27.
Chiefs vs. Bears Live Stream on Sling TV
If you’re in Chicago, one of the best ways to watch the Chiefs vs. Bears live stream is through Sling TV.
Earlier this summer, the streaming service struck deals with NBC and Fox to stream live local affiliate feeds in major markets. In Chicago, the game is being broadcast on the local Fox affiliate and it just so happens that Chicago is a major market for Sling.
Unfortunately, the game in Kansas City is being broadcast on CBS, which really doesn’t have any friendly streaming agreements with providers right now.
Also this summer, Sling added NFL Network. This game isn’t being aired on the network, but you can always flip to it afterwards to watch news and analysis from around the league.
Sling costs $20 per month and increases as you add extra channels. You can watch Sling on all of your mobile devices and most set-top box devices. Check out our review and if you’re interested, sign up for a free trial. There’s still free Roku 2 up for grabs if you really like the service.
Chiefs vs. Bears Live Stream On Demand with NFL Game Pass
For the real football junkies, it’s all about this new service from the league: NFL Game Pass.
Game Pass lets you live stream every single preseason game this year, marking the first time the NFL has allowed it. Additionally, with a subscription you get on-demand access to all 256 regular season games this season.
For this type of access, it’s going to cost you $99 for the season, but there’s a bonus: You can also watch any game on demand dating back to the 2009 season. While the price may sound expensive, it really works out to about $16 per month during the length of the season, plus playoffs.
There are blackout rules, so Bears fans in Chicago can’t stream the game live while in-market, but once the game clock hits zero, they can watch on demand.
If you’re interested, here’s a 7-day free trial.

Watch Chiefs vs. Bears Live Stream with an Antenna
Yes, antennas are still a thing, and they’re great. Local TV stations broadcast NFL games over the air for free and you can watch them with an antenna.
Simply buy an antenna (here’s out buyers guide), install it with a good line of sight, auto-tune your TV and presto! You should have more than a dozen channels, including the major four broadcast networks that air games.
WFLD, Chicago’s Fox affiliate, and KCTV, Kansas City’s CBS affiliate are broadcasting this week’s game.
