Watch Atlanta Falcons Live Stream on Sling TV

Sling TV is one of my favorite online streaming services. It’s great for football, for watching TV shows, for keeping up on the latest news – you name it. And this season, it will also be useful for NFL preseason streaming.

Sling TV offers many popular TV stations in their lineup. See our full Sling TV channel list for details. For now, here’s what you need to know: Sling TV gives you live access to ESPN, NFL Network, and FOX/NBC in select markets. These channels will all be useful for watching Falcons games online.

But really, the channel you should be really excited about is NFL Network. Why? Because that channel will give you access to every single preseason game of the 2016 season! Not all games are live (16 live, the rest as replays), but still, every single game is covered. Local blackouts may apply.

Sling starts at only $20 a month, and works on most major devices. No contract is required. You can even try it out for free for 7 days!


Watch the Atlanta Falcons Online Live during the Preseason with NFL Game Pass

NFL Game Pass

The simplest way to watch the Falcons online this preseason is with the help of NFL Game Pass. This streaming service comes directly from the NFL, and lets fans watch preseason games live from the comfort of your couch.

Game Pass works on streaming devices such as Chromecast, Apple TV, etc. as well as mobile devices. With the service, you’ll be able to watch live out-of-market preseason games. If the preseason game isn’t showing on local or national TV in your area, you’ll be able to watch it live with NFL Game Pass. If it is showing locally, you won’t be able to catch the live stream, but you can still watch the replay on-demand on your own schedule.

Game Pass offers a lot more than just preseason streaming. You can read about all the benefits of this service further down this page, or in our full review of NFL Game Pass. Amazingly, Game Pass will only cost you $99 per year, which is a steal of a deal compared to cable TV. You can even snag a free 7-day trial of NFL Game Pass to test the waters risk-free.


Regular Season

Ahh, the regular season; heaven for football fans. Four glorious months of hard-hitting NFL action, what’s not to love? Our NFL live stream guide has all the details – below, find out how to access Atlanta Falcons streaming this season.


Use Sling TV to Enjoy Atlanta Falcons Live Streaming

sling tv

With Sling TV, you can watch Atlanta Falcons games online throughout the regular season. Sling is a cable-free streaming service that gives you access to many of TV’s best networks, without the expense or commitment of a cable contract. We reviewed the service in detail here.

Sling’s plans start at only $20 a month, and even their largest package (with 60+ channels) is only $40 a month. It’s also contract-free, so no need to commit to anything long-term.

For football fans, the most notable channels are FOX and NBC, which are key for watching local games – FOX and NBC are not available nationwide, but they are available in most NFC markets. ESPN is also included, which hosts Monday Night Football each week. Last but not least, NFL Network, which hosts Thursday Night Football, is included. And if you get tired of football (yeah, right…) you can watch a ton of other great content, from live news to TV shows and more.

If you’re thinking about trying Sling TV, there’s a FREE 7-day trial you can sign up for. If you’re thinking more long-term, think about this: if you sign up for 3 months of Sling, you can choose a welcome gift of either a FREE Roku streaming player or a discounted Apple TV!


Watch Falcons Football Online with NFL Sunday Ticket

Most football fans are probably aware of DirecTV’s NFL Sunday Ticket service, but for those who aren’t, here’s how it works: For $50 a month, you can stream ALL Sunday NFL games LIVE, so long as those games are out-of-market. That means games that are not airing live on your local channels. So, it’s most useful for folks who live far away from Atlanta. Sunday Ticket is available to DirecTV satellite subscribers.

If you qualify for the service, NFL Sunday Ticket’s got a new streaming product that is a great way to watch the Falcons online. The service allows you to stream out-of-market Sunday NFL games live, all season long, without the need for satellite TV or cable!

To qualify, you’ll have to live in an area that does not have access to DirecTV’s usual satellite TV subscriptions. Many apartments, condos, dorms, etc. fall into this category. Most students also qualify. If you do qualify, you’ll get full access to NFL Sunday Ticket streaming for $49.99 per month.

If you or a family member are a college student, you may qualify for NFL Sunday Ticket U, a discounted service priced at just $24.99 per month.


Watch Regular Season Falcons Games On Demand with NFL Game Pass

NFL Game Pass

You already read about how you can watch live preseason games with NFL Game Pass, but you might not know that Game Pass offers a lot more than just that. With a subscription to NFL Game Pass, you’ll be able to enjoy every single regular season NFL game (all 256 of them!) on demand, starting shortly after they air on TV. This service is a great option for people whose schedules do not allow for live viewing, or for those who want to catch up with a variety of NFL teams.

In addition to full replays of regular season games, with Game Pass (our review here) you’re also able to watch 30-minute condensed replays, which are commercial-free and provide a quick way to catch all the action. You can also enjoy exclusive camera angles not seen elsewhere, plus live audio coverage of all regular season games.

Oh yeah, and it gets much better. In addition to being able to watch every NFL game of the 2016-2017 season, you can actually go back and watch every single NFL game since 2009. You can watch Falcons games online from each of the last 5 seasons, plus keep up to date with all your other favorite teams! You can even relive past Super Bowl throwdowns in glorious HD.

You can try a free 7-day trial of NFL game pass to test the waters. After that, this service will run you $99 for the season.


Use PlayStation Vue to Watch the Falcons Online

Playstation Vue

Another online streaming service that offers Atlanta Falcons live stream is PlayStation Vue. This cable-free service has plans starting from $30 a month, offering upwards of 50 channels to subscribers. It works on most devices, although Apple TV and a few others are not yet supported.

Vue (review here) offers ESPN and NFL Network nationwide, both very useful channels for NFL viewing. It also offers NBC and FOX in select areas. It’s a solid service, but in general Sling TV is a better option.


Watch Local and Nationally-Aired Falcons Games Live with an Antenna

If you live in the Atlanta area, you can still watch most Falcons games live, directly on your TV. You don’t need cable or any type of subscription – just a quality antenna and a TV! Simply check your local listings and tune into your local sports channel to catch all that great NFL action, live from your TV.

If you’d like more flexibility, or if your schedule doesn’t allow you to watch the game live, you can always use a DVR. It’s another good way to watch the Atlanta Falcons online. I’ve also put together a complete guide to DVRs here so that you can choose the one that’s perfect for you.
