Use DIRECTV NOW to Watch the Ravens Online
If you’re looking to gain access to a Baltimore Ravens live stream without spending a fortune, DIRECTV NOW is a great option. This new streaming service is only $35 a month, and more importantly, available without a contract. It lets you watch live TV from many of the best channels out there.
Basically, you’ll sign up and choose your package (you can start with a free week trial). There are several packages available, with the basic one offering 60+ channels for $35 a month, and the biggest offering 100+ channels. All packages are available without a contract, and offer live streaming of their channels.
For Baltimore Ravens streaming, the most valuable channels included are ESPN (available nationwide), and NBC and FOX (which are only available in select areas). These three channels host the majority of Playoff action. Other channels include TBS, FX, AMC, Food Network, TNT, Comedy Central and more.
Unlike traditional TV, you don’t use a cable box or a satellite dish. You use the internet, and a compatible device.

The 2016 NFL Preseason will take place between mid August and early September. For full details, check out our NFL Preseason streaming guide. If you’d like to watch the Ravens online during the preseason, there are two main options.
Watch Baltimore Ravens Preseason Games Online on Sling TV
During the preseason, Sling TV will provide another good way to watch live NFL games online. Sling TV is a popular online streaming service that gives subscribers the best parts of a cable TV subscription, without the sky-high cost or long-term commitment.
Sling offers various packages, ranging from 25+ to 60+ channels, and costing $20 to $40 a month. For NFL Preseason viewers, notable channels include ESPN and NFL Network as well as NBC and FOX. ESPN and NFL Network are available nationwide, while NBC and FOX are only live in select areas. See our Sling TV review for details.
NFL Network will be particularly useful for preseason streaming, as this channel has rights to broadcast EVERY preseason game of 2016. The catch is that not all games are offered live; 16 will be live broadcasts, with the remaining games offered as replays. Also, note that local blackouts may restrict you from watching your local team.
Besides sports, Sling TV includes many great channels, including TBS, TNT, AMC, CNN and many more. With prices starting at $20 a month, it provides a lot of value. There’s even a free 7-day trial!
Watch the Baltimore Ravens Online Preseason Games Live with NFL Game Pass
Without a doubt, NFL Game Pass is the best service for watching the Baltimore Ravens preseason games live without needing a cable subscription. There are two versions of Game Pass — domestic (full review) and international (more on this later). With both versions, you can watch every out-of-market preseason game for every NFL team LIVE from the comfort of your home.
For preseason games, Game Pass allows for live streaming of every game that’s not broadcasting in your local market or nationally. So if you live outside of the Baltimore Ravens broadcasting area, you’ll be able to catch every Ravens preseason game live. If you do live in the Baltimore area, you won’t be able to stream live, but you will still be able to watch replays of the games after they air, starting just a few hours after they broadcast on live TV.
NFL Game Pass is the NFL’s very own streaming service. It’s available for $99.99 per year, and allows for live preseason streaming on devices such as the Apple TV, Chromecast, Xbox, smartphones, tablets, and PC/Mac. Support for additional streaming devices is coming soon. Try the service out with a free 7-day trial of NFL Game Pass.
The 2016 NFL Regular Season will take place between early September and late January. Our NFL Streaming guide has the full details, but for now, the services discussed below offer the best ways to watch the Baltimore Ravens online during the regular 2016-2017 NFL season.
Watch a Baltimore Ravens Live Stream with Sling TV
Sling TV is a great way to access Baltimore Ravens live stream during the 2016-2017 season. First off, Sling offers ESPN and ESPN2, which means you’ll be able to watch every Monday Night Football game of the regular season. Sling also offers NFL Network, which hosts Thursday Night Football as well as a ton of analysis/news/etc. NFL Network also offers NFL RedZone, an exciting program that cuts back and forth between all live games on Sundays to show all Red Zone action. In addition, in select markets Sling TV also carries NBC and FOX, two channels that are essential for watching a ton of local games.
With Sling TV (review here), you’ll get unlimited access to live streaming of more than 25 popular cable networks with Sling Orange, or 40+ channels with Sling Blue. Their packages are available without a contract, so you can cancel at any time.

Watch the Baltimore Ravens Online Live with NFL Sunday Ticket
NFL Sunday Ticket is a popular football package from DirecTV. It’s available to all DirecTV satellite subscribers as an add-on, and it’s also included in some packages. It’s a fantastic service that covers EVERY out-of-market Sunday NFL game each week and broadcasts them live.
If you don’t have DirecTV and/or don’t qualify for it, NFL Sunday Ticket is now available as a streaming product from DirecTV to qualifying households. If you do qualify, you can stream every out-of-market Sunday NFL game LIVE, without the need for an expensive cable subscription.
If you live in an area where the standard satellite service from DirecTV is not available, you could qualify for NFL Sunday Ticket. Generally speaking, people who live in apartments, condos, or dorms where satellite service is not allowed can qualify for Sunday Ticket. Also, most students and residents of NYC, Philadelphia and San Francisco will qualify. See our review of the service for more info.
NFL Sunday Ticket starts at $49.99 per month for the four-month NFL season. With this service, you can watch every Baltimore Ravens game online live, plus stay up to date with all your other favorite teams. If you or a family member is currently enrolled in a qualifying university, you may be able to subscribe to NFL Sunday Ticket for a discounted rate of $24.99 a month.
If you’d like to see if you qualify for NFL Sunday Ticket, you can call DirectTV at 888-648-7389.
Watch Full Game Replays with NFL Game Pass
If you don’t mind waiting a few hours to watch Ravens games, NFL Game Pass is an excellent choice. With this service, you can watch every single regular season NFL game on-demand, starting just a few hours after the game airs on TV.
Using NFL Game Pass is an easy way to watch the Ravens online, because you can watch on your own schedule. Whenever you have the time, you can catch up with all your favorite teams. You can choose to watch full replays or opt for condensed, 30-minute replays, which are commercial free. This is ideal for the person who works on game day or who wants to follow multiple teams across the league.
If you want live coverage, you can listen to live audio coverage of regular season games with Game Pass.
Game Pass will run you $99.99 per year, and you can try the service out for free with a free 7-day trial.
Use PlayStation Vue to Stream the Baltimore Ravens Online
PlayStation Vue, Sony’s online streaming service, provides one more way to watch a Ravens live stream. Actually, Vue offers pretty much the same thing as Sling TV, with channels like ESPN, NFL Network, NBC and FOX.
Vue’s packages start at $30 a month ($40 a month for areas that include NBC and FOX), and are available contract-free. In general, we think Sling TV is a better service because it’s cheaper and works on more devices – but Vue is still a good option. Check our PS Vue review for details.
Watch Ravens Games Live Over-the-Air with Your Antenna
If you live within the Baltimore area, you can still catch all Baltimore Ravens games live over the air, with the help of an antenna. If you have a good antenna, you can still pick up your local stations in HD — meaning you can watch every Ravens game directly on your TV. No cable subscription required, no digital box, no fuss — just over-the-air viewing like the old days.
With an over-the-air DVR, you can record all of the games if you’re unable to watch them live. You can also pause, rewind, and fast forward while watching live TV, and best of all, some DVRs let you stream your recordings and live over-the-air TV to any of your paired devices, anywhere you go. Click here to check out a comparison of the top DVRs.
For folks living outside of the US, there are slightly different options for accessing Baltimore Ravens streaming. Here’s our recommendation:
NFL Game Pass International Includes Live Streaming of Ravens Games
If you live outside of the United States, you can subscribe to NFL Game Pass International. This service is very similar to the domestic version, with one big difference: it offers LIVE streaming of NFL games. With Game Pass International, you’ll be able to access Baltimore Ravens live stream. You’ll also be able to stream games on-demand as your schedule allows.
