Previously, I was not a huge fan of the Pro Bowl, but I and many other fans agreed the new format made for an incredibly exciting and entertaining matchup. With star players like Odell Beckham Jr. giving it their all and making ridiculous plays it was easy to get excited during the game. The Pro Bowl airs on ESPN on Sunday, January 31st at 7:00 p.m. ET. But don’t worry, even if you don’t have cable, you can still catch the Pro Bowl live stream. Wondering how to watch the Pro Bowl online? Let’s learn how.
The NFL is sticking with the same format as the last two years and NFL legends Michael Irving and Jerry Rice will each captain a team. They will announce their draft picks on Wednesday, January 27th at 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2. Then, the two teams will match up on Sunday for bragging rights. Just by looking at the recently announced rosters you can tell it will be another great game.
Expect to see what feels like a continuous highlight reel if you are watching the Pro Bowl live stream on Sunday. If you do want to catch the Pro Bowl live or even online without a cable subscription, Sling TV will be your best option. Below are all the details you need to know about the service and even some information on how to potentially watch the Pro Bowl free.
Watch the Pro Bowl Live Stream By Subscribing to Sling TV
Sling TV spent all of 2015 making a name for itself as one of the best alternatives to a cable subscription on the market. It was launched early in the year by Dish Network and has separated itself by offering only popular cable channels featuring great TV shows and live sporting events. It will be your best and easiest option to watch the Pro Bowl online on Sunday.
Sling TV’s starting package only costs $20 per month and there is no contract required, meaning you can cancel at any point you would like. The package includes over 20 cable channels. Most of these channels are normally only accessed with a cable subscription, but Sling TV makes them available for only a fraction of the cost. Some of the Sling TV channels are AMC, TBS, TNT, CNN, ESPN, and ESPN2, and much more. So, Sling TV subscribers can watch the Pro Bowl Draft online as well, since it is airing on ESPN2 on Wednesday, January 27th at 7:30 p.m. ET – and Sling TV offers the ability to watch ESPN2 online without cable.
The ability to access ESPN streaming via Sling is one of the service’s most valuable offerings. Sling TV also has an agreement with ESPN, allowing subscribers access to WatchESPN with your Sling TV login. WatchESPN is a new way to watch several ESPN channels, like ESPN3, either online or on your mobile device. Several channels are included in your Sling TV subscription and can be watched easily over an internet connection.
Sling TV is compatible with a number of devices and live streams can be accessed almost anywhere you can connect to the internet. You can watch a Pro Bowl live stream on your phone, tablet, computer, or even directly on your TV with a device like Roku or Chromecast.
For an additional $5 per month you can select one of Sling TV’s add-on packages. They are channel bundles surrounding a specific niche and can seriously expand your channel package. Our favorite is the Sports Extra package, which includes channels like ESPNU, ESPNEWS, ESPN Goal Line, and SEC Network. That’s a lot of extra live sports and analysis for only $5 more each month.
If you are still unsure about Sling TV, you can test out the service right now with a 7-day free trial. If you time it correctly, this will actually let you watch both the Pro Bowl Draft and actual Pro Bowl free.
Right now, Sling TV has a fantastic limited-time offer that we highly recommend when you subscribe to Sling TV for three months. When you subscribe you receive either half off of a Roku 3 Player or a free Roku 2 Player (Roku 2 retails at $69.99). If you do the math, you can see you actually get three months of Sling TV and $10 off a Roku 2 with this deal. The Roku 2 has been reviewed by popular websites like CNET and they consistently say it is just as fast as the new Roku 3. This is probably the best deal out there to watch tons of sports, including the Pro Bowl online, without a cable subscription.
