Stay on top of all the news from the NFL.

If you can stream NFL Network, you can stream Thursday Night Football and more.

  • NFL Network covers the NFL season year-round. It covers the NFL draft, training camps, the regular season, and the NFL playoffs.
  • The 2020 NFL Network schedule includes 13 Thursday games, three exclusive to NFL Network, and a Christmas Day game.
  • Since June 2020, the NFL Network’s been off Sling, though it may return in time for the 2020 NFL season.
  • You can stream NFL Network on Fubo, YouTube TV, and Vidgo.

What is NFL Network?

The best reason to subscribe to NFL Network is to watch Thursday Night Football.

But there’s plenty more to love about NFL Network, which was launched in 2003 by the NFL for fans. It hosts exclusive shows like Good Morning Football, NFL Total Access, and A Football Life. It also previews Sunday’s slate of games with NFL GameDay. NFL Network also hosts daily programming devoted to fantasy football and power rankings. And you can watch replays of games if you’re looking to get your football fix on weekdays.

The bottom line: If you want to get closer to the game and catch (almost) every Thursday Night Football game, you need NFL Network.

NFL Network live stream: Which streaming services carry NFL Network?


FuboTV started as a streaming service geared toward sports fans. It’s since evolved into a broadly-appealing option with entertainment and news options alongside its robust sports choices. FuboTV starts at $59.99 a month, and depending on the package, you can access as many as 180+ FuboTV channels. If you want Fubo to entertain you, Bravo, IFC, MTV, and VH1 are options even at Fubo’s most basic tier.

The Fubo channel list still includes plenty of sports, including the Fubo Sports Network, which has original programming mixing sports and humor. Fubo added the ESPN suite of channels in an agreement that also brought ABC and the Disney Channel. Pretty much every sports channel you could think of is available through Fubo, including BeIN Sports, CBS Sports Network, and TUDN. NFL Network’s available on its range of plans.


YouTube TV

The YouTube TV channel list includes local channels and plenty to keep kids (and kids at heart) occupied, including Disney Channel and its companion channels, Nickelodeon, and Cartoon Network—all in one easy-to-access package. It even comes with a few Spanish-language channels like Telemundo and NBC Universo. YouTube add-ons include HBO Max, Showtime, and Starz. YouTube TV packages have some advantages over their competitors, including a generous DVR and multiple screens package. From one account, each user can create an individual profile to track favorite shows.

It’s a great option for sports fans. And now that you can stream NFL Network on YouTube TV, it’s even better. It comes with ESPN, ESPN2, FS1, FS2, and NBCSN at the ready. Deeper sports cuts, like NBA TV, MLB Network, CBS Sports Network, and ESPNU are also part of the YouTube TV plan. There’s also a Sports Plus package for $10.99 a month with seven channels, most notably NFL RedZone.

1 Month$64.99


Vidgo offers a package for under $40 a month that pulls together more than 60 English-language channels into its National English Package. The base package of Vidgo channels include ABC, Fox, the ESPN family of channels (including ESPN Deportes), NFL Network, and it’s one of the few streaming services that carries BeIN Sports. But it’s like Fubo in that, even though it started out for streaming sports, it carries a lot more now. There’s even a Social TV platform that allows you to chat with other Vidgo viewers about what you’re watching.

There’s also two Latino options featuring ESPN Deportes, Fox Deportes, and TyC sports at both levels.

NFL Network is available for Core plan subscribers. At the Plus level on the English side, you get NFL RedZone and all the Pac-12 Network regional options.

English Premium Package$66.33/ 3 months
English Plus Package$53/ 3 months
Spanish Mas Package$25/ 3 months
