The 2022 NFL regular season is scheduled to run 18 weeks, and include 272 games in total. Take a look at our rundown of all the streaming services that’ll be delivering live NFL football this season. We’re talking streamers like Amazon Prime Video, FuboTV, Paramount+Hulu + Live TV and NFL+. (And be sure to stay tuned until the end for our recommendations on streaming devices!)  
CBS Essentials and Paramount+ are both subsidiaries of Paramount.
There are a number of streaming services that offer NFL games this season, including Amazon Prime Video, NFL+, Paramount+, FuboTV and more. Here’s what you need to know about watching NFL games in 2022.
This season, after a few years of being available simultaneously on up to three platforms, “Thursday Night Football” will stream its live games exclusively on Amazon Prime Video. Play-by-play legend Al Michaels, late of “Sunday Night Football,” and Kirk Herbstreit, best known as an analyst for ESPN’s “College GameDay,” will have the calls. 
Not a Prime member? Amazon offers new subscribers a 30-day free trial, so you can watch live NFL action, along with all the other TV shows and moves offered by Prime Video. 
Thursday Night Football, streaming on Prime Video
“Sunday Night Football” will air weekly on NBC, and simultaneously stream live on Peacock. (You can also stream NBC via a live-TV streaming app, à la DirecTV Stream, natch.) 
An important streaming heads-up: While Peacock offers plenty of great ad-supported shows and movies for free, if you want access to Peacock’s premium content, including “Sunday Night Football,” you need a subscription. There are two Peacock subscription options. For $5 per month, you can get ad-supported access to premium content, or go ad-free for $10 per month.  
“Sunday Night Football,” streaming on Peacock
Don’t want to pay a monthly fee to catch NFL games on NBC? An inexpensive HD antenna will let you watch football and everything else broadcast on the major over-the-air networks. You can get one for $29 at Amazon.
U Must Have amplified HD digital TV antenna, $29 (reduced from $45)
A Paramount+ subscription includes live access to “NFL on CBS.” That’s CBS’ slate of live, AFC Sunday games. The streamer also offers NFL fans the weekly studio show, “Inside the NFL.” 
Paramount+ has two subscriber tiers available — the $5 per month “Essential Plan,” a budget-minded tier with ads, and the $10 per month “Premium Plan,” which costs more but is ad-free. Paramount+ also offers a one-week free-trial period, so if you were thinking of trying the platform, you can catch a Sunday of football on CBS risk-free.
Paramount + subscription, $5 and up per month
Subscribers to the Walmart+ shopping service now get Paramount+ included in their subscription at no extra cost.
Walmart+ members now get free access to the ad-supported Paramount+ Essential plan. Paramount+ Essential includes tens of thousands of movies and TV episodes, including “Sonic the Hedgehog 2,” “Yellowstone” spin-off “1883,” “Star Trek: Lower Decks,” “NCIS” and “Survivor.” Perhaps most importantly, Essential plan members get access to NFL on CBS live.
Walmart+ and Paramount+ bundle: $12.95 per month or $98 per year
Essentials and Paramount+ are both subsidiaries of Paramount. 
If you want to watch NFL games exclusively on your mobile device or tablet, NFL+ has you covered. Starting at $5 per month or $30 annually, an NFL+ subscription gives you mobile or tablet access to live local and primetime regular season and postseason games, live game audio for every game and more. You’ll also get live out-of-market preseason games across a broader range of devices. 
NFL+, $5 and up per month
FuboTV is a sports-centric streaming service that offers access to almost every NFL game of the season. Packages include CBS, Fox, NBC, ESPN, NFL Network, NFL RedZone and more. 
Fox, so you know, offers Sunday NFC games via “NFL on Fox”; while ESPN is the home of “Monday Night Football.” ABC airs some “MNF” games, too. 
In addition to NFL football, FuboTV offers MLB, NBA, NHL, MLS and international soccer games.
FuboTV, starting at $70 per month
Sling TV is a live-TV streamer. For the NFL season, Sling’s “Orange & Blue” tier will get you almost all of the networks you need to watch every game — and at a relative bargain of $50 a month. Note: The “Orange & Blue” tier will not get you CBS games, or Amazon Prime Video’s “Thursday Night Football.” 
Still interested? Sling offers new users half off their first month of any package, including the “Orange & Blue” tier. 
Sling TV (“Orange & Blue” tier), $50 per month
DirecTV Stream isn’t cheap, but it streams all the networks you’ll need for the 2022 NFL season. DirecTV Stream’s least-expensive tier, called “Entertainment,” offers CBS, NBC, Fox and ESPN for $70 a month. But get this: Subscribers to the “Choice” tier and above get CBS, NBC, Fox and ESPN, plus your regional sports networks and no-extra-cost access to 2022 NFL Sunday Ticket Max, a plan that streams every live out-of-market Sunday game (and usually runs $395).  
DirecTV Stream (“Choice” tier), $80 per month for first five months (new users only)
During the 2022 NFL season, ESPN+ will exclusively broadcast one single game: Denver Broncos vs. Jacksonville Jaguars on Oct. 30. The game will take place at Wembley Stadium in London, England at 9:30 a.m. ET. This means, if you truly want to the ability to stream every single game of the season, you’ll need access to ESPN+ for the month of October. The $7 per month streaming service does not currently offer a free trial. 
ESPN+, $7 monthly
Another way you can gain access to ESPN+ is through the Disney+ bundle, which includes Disney+, Hulu’s most basic ad-supported plan and ESPN+ for $14 a month. If you’re wondering what else you can watch with the Disney+ bundle, check out our guide on what to watch on Disney+ and what to watch on Hulu this month
