Stream The Lions Live On Sling TV
Sling TV is one of our favorite streaming services for NFL games because of the channel options, flexibility to customize packages, and low price when compared to other services. Sling offers live local channels such as FOX, ABC, and NBC. Sling TV also offers ESPN, NFL Network, and NFL RedZone channels.
The Lions 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.
Watch the Lions Online with Hulu w/ Live TV
Hulu + Live TV is very different than the “video on demand” Hulu that you are used to. Hulu Live is very competitive in pricing especially when it comes to combining sports channels with live local streaming channels so you won’t miss the Lions play this week. Hulu + Live TV only offers one package which is $44.99/mo and includes your NBC, CBS, Fox and ABC local channels (depending on where you live) and ESPN (Monday Night Football). The only negative is that Hulu Live doesn’t offer the NFL Network so if the Lions play a Thursday Night game, you’ll need to watch on your local network.
Hulu with Live TV offers your first week free and then is $44.99/mo after.
Streaming Detroit Lions Games on AT&T Now
After the recent merger between DirecTV and AT&T, DirecTV Now has been re-branded as AT&T Now with more packages and internet bundle options. While not the most cost-effective options for online streaming, they offer several television packages starting at $50/mo all the way up to $135/mo. AT&T Now is the closest thing to a full cable/satellite TV experience from a streaming television provider.
Like the other services mentioned above, AT&T Now offers live local streaming channels (ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox) where available. It also has ESPN so you won’t miss the Monday Night Football game but there is no NFL Network, so you will need to watch your local team on your live local station.
Live local stations and ESPN come in all their packages which start at $50/mo – you can view and compare the packages here.
Detroit Lions Football Games On fuboTV
fuboTV is quickly becoming one of our favorite streaming services for NFL fans. It is amazing for watching a lot of sports including NFL games. In their base package they have live local channels (if available in your area), the NFL Network and more including FOX Sports regional networks, beIN Sports, CBS Sports Network, BIG Ten and PAC-12 Networks, NBC, CBS, FOX, FS1. The only main NFL channel missing from fuboTV is ESPN so you won’t be able to see Monday Night Football games unless your local team is playing, so keep that in mind.
fuboTV’s live streaming service starts at $54.99/month for 95+ channels many of which are sports oriented so if you are a fan of all sports, not just the NFL, fuboTV will be a clear choice you and all other sports fans. fuboTV is offering a FREE 7-day trial so you can check it out for yourself. (Only available through our link.)
Watch Live Detroit Lions Games with Playstation Vue
Playstation Vue is an streaming 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 Lions 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 CBS All Access, you can live stream NFL on CBS games for only $5.99 per month after the 7-day free trial they offer to new customers. Not a bad deal, especially if your team is in the AFC.
How to Watch Detroit Lions Games With A Digital Antenna
If you are on a tighter budget or simply looking to watch Detroit Lions football the most inexpensive way possible you’ll 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 Lions 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.
What About Illegal Streams Of Detroit Lions 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.
