But only limited matches can be watched on your phone. These matches can be local or recent matches and national broadcasts on Sunday, Monday and Thursday night. These games also stream live on yahoo sports app.
Hulu with Live TV:
Hulu is a platform providing live channels for your entertainment at very low cost. Hulu is available with live TV only for $40 per month. But you also need to check which live channels are offered by Hulu in your locality. Hulu with live transmission includes the CBS, Fox, NBC and ESPN but not NFL Network, which means you’ll get games on Sunday afternoon (CBS and Fox), Sunday night (NBC), Monday night (ESPN) and 11 Thursday night games (Fox).
YouTube TV is similar to the Hulu with live TV. YouTube TV costs $40 for a month and includes CBS, Fox, NBC and ESPN but not NFL Network. It is currently available in dozens of major metro markets.
This platform also charge $40 for the first month but later you have to pay $45 per month to watch the matches.

But you can enjoy the matches on Sunday afternoons telecasted by CBS and Fox, Sunday nights on NBC and Thursday night games are transmitted via NFL Network. You can pay $9 per month to add NFL RedZone as sports plus package.
Free over-the-air TV:
Let’s talk about some free of cost options. If you are living in an area with a good location, where you can receive the signals of broadcasts easily, you can enjoy the matches free. The only thing you have to do is to attach an antenna of very affordable price of almost $30 to any nearby TV. Now you can enjoy the matches on Fox, CBS and NBC. Moreover, if any local team is playing and it is broadcasting on ESPN or NFL Network, then it will usually be simulcast on the local stations too. Shortly, you will be able to watch all your local teams every week. In addition, you can enjoy the other games on CBS and Fox.
Channels may vary by regions. So you must check out on the Playstation Vue plans page that which stations or networks are available to you in your locality. In many markets, you can watch on-demand matches but not live from Fox, CBS, NBC and your local networks. This holds true for all streaming services that offer live TV.
The usual caveat applies:
Check the channel lineup in your area to make sure you can watch your local TV stations live. And please note that you cannot get NFL Sunday Ticket with DirectTV Now. NFL Sunday Ticket lets you watch every out-of-market Sunday NFL Game but requires a DirectTV satellite or meeting certain eligibility requirements (mainly, you live in an apartment that can’t get satellite service or you’re a student in a US college or university).
