The Browns Stream Live On Sling TV
Sling TV is one of our favorite streaming services because of the channel options, flexibility to customize packages, and price. Sling TV offers local channels such as FOX, ABC, and NBC. Sling TV also offers ESPN, NFL Network, and NFL RedZone channels. Some of the sports channels have started to change lately, so review the packages or check out the trial before jumping in.
The Browns have several games on channels offered by Sling. Sling’s Orange package ($25/month) contains ESPN but does not contain local channels. The Blue package ($25/month) offers local channels but not ESPN (R). Most of the games are on local channels so this option may be your best option.
Of course, there is the Orange + Blue package ($40/month) which contains all of the channels. To learn more about Sling TV check out our comprehensive review. Sling is currently offering a FREE Roku Express and a 7-day free trial for new customers.
Cleveland Football Games On fuboTV
fuboTV is quickly becoming one of our favorite streaming services for sports fanatics. This live streaming service starts at $54.99/month for 95+ channels many of which are sports oriented. fuboTV has one package option with many add-on packs for all sports fans. fuboTV is offering a FREE 7-day trial so you can check it out for yourself. (Only available through our link.)
In their base package they have locals (if available) and the NFL Network and also includes FOX Sports regional networks, beIN Sports, CBS Sports Network, BIG Ten and PAC-12 Networks, NBC, CBS, FOX, FS1, and more. The one channel that is missing is ESPN, so keep that in mind. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with the offering and price.
Stream Browns Games Live with Playstation Vue
Playstation Vue is a newer service with some awesome upside. Most people think you need to watch this using a Playstation but that is no longer the case. PS Vue is an app, just like the rest, and is available on all the major platforms like Roku, Android, Apple and Amazon devices and they offer live local channels for a good portion of the country. The PS Vue Core package starts at $54.99 has locals, ESPN, NFL Network and regional Fox networks, all great for watching football. Like other services, PS Vue offers a trial but theirs is only a 5-day free trial.
Live Stream Browns Games On CBS All Access
Almost half the NFL games are on CBS so their service may make some sense for you to try for football season, unless you are a huge fan of shows on CBS in which case, it is worth the price for everything you get. With All Access, you can live stream NFL on CBS games for only $5.99 per month after the 7-day free trial they offer for new customers, not a bad deal, especially if your team is in the AFC.
How to Watch Cleveland Games With A Digital Antenna
If you are on a tighter budget or simply looking to watch Cleveland Browns football the most inexpensive way possible you will want to explore getting a digital OTA antenna. Additionally, a digital over-the-air antenna can work as an awesome supplement to services like Sling or fuboTV due to CBS being absent from most streaming services. The Browns have some games on CBS this year.
Sling TV recently released the AirTV Player which allows you to connect your OTA antenna to this set-top box to work in conjunction with Sling TV. For more reviews and information about which antenna is best for you, please check out our HD antenna reviews.
Other Ways To Stream Browns Games Online
- NFL GamePass – This service is available for a one-time payment of $99.99. While this initially may seem better than the alternatives it is worth pointing out that many games are subject to blackout restrictions. This option is best for people looking for out-of-market games.
- DirecTV Now – This option is very similar to the Sling TV services. They have recently increased prices AND their reliability track record is off and on, so we are hesitant about recommending this if you just want football. Check out our analysis of this live streaming service.
What About Illegal Streams Of Cleveland Browns Games?
We will never recommend for cord cutters to seek out “free” illegal streams. Most of these streams are shaky, blurry, and low quality but most importantly these illegal streams can be dangerous. Many sites that offer these streams are untrustworthy and laced with viruses. This simply causes more headaches in the long run and after all, it is illegal.
