Sling TV Offers a True Monday Night Football Live Stream
Sling TV is a new streaming service from Dish Network that offers live channels delivered over the internet (full review here). This service, brought to your home for a reasonable, no-contract-involved price of $20 per month, includes live streaming of channels such as TNT, CNN, AMC, and most importantly for sports fans, ESPN and ESPN 2. Bingo. Monday Night Football live streaming achieved.
If you only care to watch your team the one week they play on MNF, the 7-day free trial of Sling TV is right up your alley. But really, you’ll want to have Sling TV all season – why? Because it also includes NFL Network, home of Thursday Night Football, and even NBC and FOX in some areas. Sling offers up to 60+ channels, so there’s no shortage of things to watch!
If you just have to have Monday Night Football live streaming every week, Sling TV is also offering a limited time 3-month deal when you sign up for 3 months of service. They are offering a FREE Roku Streaming player or a discounted Apple TV, widely known as one of the best streaming devices on the market. This deal will allow you to watch Monday Night Football online on your TV every week for the whole season.
NFL Game Pass Lets You Watch Monday Night Football Online On Demand
If you are cool with watching Monday Night Football online, but not exactly live, then NFL Game Pass Domestic (there’s also an international version; more info below) might just be for you. The service is now being offered for a very reasonable price, and you get access to every regular season game on demand, shortly after it airs.
This service is good for those who work Monday nights or who can’t stay up late during the week. Game Pass also offers complete game archives dating back to the 2009 season, a Super Bowl archive, 30-minute condensed game replays, score on/off toggles to avoid spoiling games, and DVR controls to enhance the experience while watching. Check out my complete Game Pass review here.
This allows you watch the entirety of the week’s Monday Night Football online on just about any device shortly after the game finishes. Click here to find out more about NFL Game Pass.
PlayStation Vue Provides Monday Night Football Streaming
Another streaming service that offers ESPN, and therefore the Monday Night Football stream, is PlayStation Vue. Vue is a streaming service from Sony that lets subscribers watch live TV without a cable subscription.
There are some 50+ channels available via Vue, for a starting price of $30 a month. So, there’s no shortage of stuff to watch when Monday Night Football is over. Our PS Vue review has more.
NFL Mobile App Offers Free Monday Night Football Live Stream to Verizon Wireless Customers
Starting this season, all Verizon Wireless customers have a unique opportunity to stream Monday Night Football free. The NFL Mobile App gives users access to all local and primetime games. This includes Monday Night Football, in addition to all other primetime games each week, like Thursday Night Football and Sunday Night Football. Those who are already Verizon users can just download the app and get to their Monday Night Football live stream once the game starts. The only catch is you can only watch content from NFL Mobile on your mobile devices as mirroring to your TV is blocked with the app. For a limited time, Verizon will even give you $300 when you trade in your old phone and buy a new one.
Watch Your Team Play on Monday Night Football Free with Your Antenna
If you’re located within either of the two weekly teams’ local broadcast area, you have the option to watch the game as it airs on your local station for free. The game will be simulcast over-the-air on your local network TV. If you don’t already have an antenna, we detail several great choices in our antenna guide.
With an over-the-air DVR you can record, pause, rewind, and fast-forward any games that air on broadcast TV. DVRs give you a lot more flexibility in when and where you watch your favorite teams play. This provides you with another way to watch Monday Night Football online. Click here to read my full comparison of the top over-the-air DVRs on the market today. Spoiler: I recommend Tablo to complement your Monday Night Football live stream in combination with your antenna.
International Options for Monday Night Football Streaming:
Watch Monday Night Football Online with NFL Game Pass International
If you live outside of the United States (or some US territories where Game Pass Domestic is available), watching Monday Night Football live streams is now easier than ever. With the NFL Game Pass International plan, you can live stream all regular season games from outside the USA, including the Monday Night Football live stream. Typically, Game Pass International offers three different subscription options, based on how many teams you want to follow throughout the season and whether or not you want to include playoffs streaming in your plan. Prices vary by country. Local blackouts may occasionally apply. Read my full Game Pass review here.
NOW TV Adds a Monday Night Football Live Stream for UK Fans
UK streaming service NOW TV offers live access to all of Sky’s 7 sports stations. The Sky Sports channels will be broadcasting over 100 NFL games this season, including all Monday Night Football games.
NOW TV offers three different subscription options for its sports streaming package — a Day Pass for £6.99, a Week Pass for £10.99, or a Month Pass for £31.99. For those who want to watch Monday Night Football online all season long, the Month Pass is the best value.
