Cut the cord a couple months ago. Any hints about watching NFL games?

Glad we cut the cord. We are currently using Playstation Vue and like it (Amazon Fire Sticks are awesome). We are doing a month of HBO (free for the 3rd year in a row) now to watch Game of Thrones. Even if we decide to do a month for $15 somewhere along the line, it is still so much cheaper than what we were paying for DirectTV.

Anyway, the only thing I don't think I can get is NFL games. I would like to see them live. I live in the Packer region but am a life-long Vikings fan, so live TV would be good (don't have the antennae to do that right now) but someplace that streams other games would be better. Worst case scenario I go to a bar. I wish the NFL would get their shit together and let us buy all of a team's games for a season. Hell, I'd pay $70 for that. Maybe more.

3. I've looked at that. Let me know if I'm wrong.

You only get regular season games on Game Pass if you are a DirectTV customer? Or is that changing for this year. Because I'd totatly pay $100 for all the games live.

4. Not, sure. Had heard about it from someone else, but

maybe they hadn't cut the cord?

7. Game pass streams preseason games live...

and regular season games after their conclusion. You can't see regular season games live with game pass. So hit the bar for live games and watch the Packers afterwards on game pass.

10. I can't watch regular season games live, but....

...I can replay them in either condensed version or the full replay commercial free.

I moved to Kansas last year and did not have to miss a Vikings snap all last season. I just had to wait a day to see them.

11. Use a VPN

It is worth using a VPN set to somewhere in Europe (not Germany, Switzerland or Austria) and then sign up for gamepass. You can watch the games live this way and there is no risk of a blackout.

12. Kind of where I'm at

I do use a VPN and thought about that when I went to Google Maps and it put me in France. I was able to get to the subscription page, so I think that's an activity for this weekend.

2. Ditto!

I'm a Bills fan who moved away from Western New York long ago. Needless to say, the Bills are VERY rarely broadcast nationally.

I've tried getting DirectTV, but there are too many trees in my yard to get a signal. I also apparently don't qualify to get streaming-only Sunday Ticket because I don't live in an apartment building and I'm not a student.

5. I use sling TV

I get Redzone and the NFL network. Probably not what you are looking for, but I get to watch football.

6. Really didn't like Sling, but did like they had Redzone.

Redzone would be better than nothing. Decisions. Decisions.
