Russel Wilson and the high octane Seattle Seahawks offense take on Alex Smith and the Kansas City Chiefs in an NFL preseason matchup. We’re here to help you watch the Seahawks vs. Chiefs live stream, which kicks off at 4:30 p.m. EST Saturday, Aug. 13.
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 Seahawks vs. Chiefs live stream. In other words, great news for cord-cutters.
Seahawks vs. Chiefs Live Stream on Sling TV
Aren’t there other options out there? I need my NFL fix!
You’re in luck: 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 game will be airing nationwide, out of market on NFL Network, which Sling TV now carries in its Blue package.
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.
But what about games on local broadcasts? Unfortunately, Sling TV does not currently carry the local affiliates in Seattle or KC where the game will be airing.
Seahawks vs. Chiefs Live Stream, On Demand with NFL Game Pass
If you haven’t heard about NFL Game Pass, pay attention. It replaces the now-discontinued Game Rewind service with something better that gives you access to all 256 regular season games on-demand, plus some that are live.
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 Seahawks fan in Seattle, 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 first preseason game.
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 that every NFL game since 2009 is available to stream on-demand.

Watch Seahawks-Chiefs 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.
For the Seahawks-Chiefs matchup, the Fox affiliates KCPQ Seattle KCTV Kansas City will be broadcasting the game for free, over-the-air.
