There’s still a chance Colin Kaepernick can win the starting job for the San Francisco 49ers. He’s just going to need to work his tail off against Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. For now, Blaine Gabbert is the man for the 49ers, and he’s expected to play a bulk of the first half snaps in this game. We’re excited to show you the best ways to watch the Packers vs. 49ers Live Stream.
Use this guide to watch the Packers vs. 49ers live stream, which starts at 10 p.m. EST Friday, Aug. 26.
Packers vs. 49ers Live Stream on Sling TV
One of our favorite streaming services for cord cutters is serving up the Packers vs. 49ers Live Stream because of a great last-second addition.
Sling also offers live streaming of Fox, NBC and ABC affiliates in major markets, but you won’t need to worry about that for this game.
Another upside of Sling TV is the fact that it has ESPN and ESPN 2, which means Monday Night Football. The Packers play no Monday night Nov. 28; the 49ers open up MNF Sept. 12.
Sling TV runs $20 per month and increases with more channels in your bundle. Read our extensive review of Sling TV. If you like what you see, signup for a free trial today. There’s still a free Roku 2 up for grabs.
