If you live outside of the Steelers’ local broadcast market, NFL Network will let you watch ALL the Steelers’ preseason games. Local teams are blacked out, so this won’t be as useful for Pittsburgh natives. NFL Network will actually host/broadcast all preseason games for all teams, but only some games are offered live.

Offered by DirecTV, Sunday Ticket is now also sold separately from satellite TV packages, so you can potentially subscribe to the service without a TV subscription.
If you qualify for NFL Sunday Ticket, you’ll be able to stream all out-of-market Sunday NFL games from the comfort of your couch, or on your desktop computer!

Watch Steelers Games On Demand with Game Pass
NFL Game Pass Domestic, the version available to those living in the USA, offers unlimited on-demand viewing of both preseason and regular season games. You can begin watching each game shortly after it airs on live TV. There is no Steelers game live stream with the domestic version, but you can still watch every game on-demand, in HD, whenever you have the time.
In addition to full replays of every regular season game, you can also choose to watch condensed 30-minute replays of all games. These no-frills replays are perfect for catching up in a hurry as they have no commercials and no stoppages – just that intense NFL action that fans love.
As if that’s not enough football, you can also watch replays of every single Steelers game dating all the way back to the 2009 season, relive epic Super Bowl throwdowns from years past, and more. Read our NFL Game Pass review to learn more.
Enjoy a Pittsburgh Steelers Live Stream with PlayStation Vue
PlayStation Vue is another new service that may be of use to football fans. It’s a service from Sony that is fairly similar to Sling TV. For $30 a month (or more, depending on which package you get), you’ll gain live access to many popular TV channels.
Like Sling, Vue offers ESPN and NFL Network nationwide, and NBC and FOX in select markets. So, in terms of NFL coverage, the two services are very similar. Where Vue differs is in its functionality. Unfortunately, since this service is pretty new it’s not yet supported on a lot of streaming devices, including Apple TV. Also, mobile viewing is restricted, so you’ll have to be at home to watch the Steelers online using Vue. Read our PS Vue review for details.
Watch Steelers Games Locally with an Antenna
If you live in the Pittsburgh area, you can still catch games live over-the-air, with the help of an HD antenna! If you’re in the market for a quality antenna, we always recommend that you check out our guide to the best antennas.
Miss your cable company’s DVR? Then you should learn about over-the-air DVRs. DVRs will let you record games so that you can watch them on your own schedule (and even skip through commercials!)
For our readers from outside the US, the option below is the only current way to watch Steelers football online without cable.
Watch the Pittsburgh Steelers Online Worldwide with Game Pass
If you live outside of the US, you can subscribe to a similar service known as NFL Game Pass International. The international version offers all the same great content, with the addition of LIVE streaming of NFL games. So, the international version is actually better than the domestic, giving you the ability to enjoy Pittsburgh Steelers live stream all season long for a great price. Who’s ready to move to Canada?
