The last time we saw Cam Newton, he was running away from a possessed Denver Broncos defense in Super Bowl 50. Newton and the Carolina Panthers look to march back to the big game, and it all begins with a preseason matchup agains the Baltimore Ravens. We’re here to help you — especially cord cutters — watch the Panthers vs. Ravens live stream, which kicks off at 7: 30 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.
Panthers vs. Ravens Live Stream, On Demand with NFL Game Pass
What’s better than a beautifully thrown Joe Flacco deep pass that perfectly hits its target? How about being able to watch it not only live, but again and again on-demand. That’s what the NFL has served up to us this year. The league discontinued its Game Rewind streaming service and replaced it with NFL Game Pass. That means you can enjoy the Panthers vs. Ravens live stream from the comfort of your living room, or from a mobile device while on-the-go.
The new streaming service provides access to all 256 regular season NFL games on demand and also offers an NFL preseason streaming option to watch the games live online. Game Pass streams all out-of-market preseason games live, excluding games televised in your local market or on national television. So, if you’re a Ravens fan in Baltimore, 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, if you can turn off the score notifications on your smartphone, you can still enjoy the excitement of this Panthers vs. Ravens live stream.
Game Pass is $99 for the season, but there is a 7-day free trial now by clicking here. An added bonus with the subscription is the that every NFL game since 2009 is available to stream on-demand.

Panthers vs. Ravens Live Stream on Sling TV
Flacco isn’t the only one slinging footballs. Sling TV — which continues to offer a free, 7-day trial offer — is another option for watching some of the nationally-broadcast NFL preseason games online. This particular game will be aired via replay on NFL Network (more details below).
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 like AMC, TBS, TNT, HGTV, CNN, and more. You can watch Sling TV on your TV (using a streaming player like the Roku or Apple TV), smart TV, phone, tablet, or computer.
You can also watch some games that are being broadcast locally. Recent updates with Sling allow access to some live Fox and NBC broadcasts in select markets. It’s available in Charlotte, but not in Baltimore at this time. As of now, however, no local broadcast affiliates are picking up the game in Charlotte.
In Baltimore, the ABC affiliate WMAR is broadcasting the game, but Sling doesn’t have access (yet) to live ABC content in this market. That being said, NFL Network will be airing the game nationwide on replay August 12 at 1 p.m. ET. Sling TV now carries the NFL Network live stream in its Blue package.
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 Panthers-Ravens 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.
