NFL Reddit Stream: We’re almost close to the halfway point of the season, where some of the teams are already starting to make plans for the upcoming NFL draft, while others are trying to load up to make a run for a playoff berth and, who knows, maybe a Super Bowl appearance.
After one of the worst NFL weekends in memory, fans hope the action can return to its highest level in Week 8. The plate of games seems delicious, with intriguing games on primetime and a fantastic headliner between the Arizona Cardinals and the Green Bay Packers to open the weekend.

NFL Reddit stream: How to watch free NFL Week 8 games?
You can’t stream NFL games for free on Reddit anymore because the platform has banned the r/nflstreams subreddit because of copyright infringement. The same thing happened with subreddits belonging to NBA and MMA.
Reddit shut it down because the subreddits were, well, illegal. The platform made the move without any notice from the NFL.
How to watch NFL games for free in the USA?
You can still stream NFL games without Reddit, though. New ways for fans to watch football games have been created with the recent trend of viewers moving to online platforms.
Here are some streaming platform examples on which you may find the games:
- FuboTV: A seven-day free trial service that provides access to NFL Network programs like Good Morning Football, NFL Total Access and NFL GameDay.
- Hulu: Seven-day free trial available
- YouTube TV: Seven-day free trial available
- DirecTV: Has the whole NFL Sunday Ticket, a package where you can watch all the out-of-market TV games.

How can I stream NFL games live online if I don’t have a cable subscription?
There is a wide variety of options for people who would prefer to watch on their phone, tablet, or some other online-device:
NBC’s streaming service will give you access to Sunday night games and others aired on that network. You can get a seven-day free trial, followed by a $5 or $10 monthly charge. (The free version of Peacock does not include live sports.)
CBS’s streaming service will give you access to games aired on that network. You can get a one-month free trial, followed by a $6 monthly charge.
Hulu with Live TV
You can try the service free for a week. Once that’s up, you’ll pay $65 per month.
After a two-week trial, you can expect monthly charges of $65.
Dish Network’s Sling lower tiered “Orange” plan will run you $35 per month. Adding the more comprehensive “Blue” plan bumps the cost to $50-per-month. You’ll have a 7-day free trial first—and right now, the cord cutting service is dropping the first month’s bill to $10.
Formerly known as DirecTV Now and AT&T TVNow, AT&T’s streaming service will run you $70 per month and up. There is no longer a free trial option.
Disney’s bundle of Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ can be enjoyed for free for seven days, after which you’ll pay $13.99 per month for all three combined
This sports-focused cord cutting service carries broadcast networks in most markets. There’s a seven-day free trial, followed by monthly charges of $65-$80, depending on the channels you choose.

Can I watch NFL games on Amazon?
You’re getting closer to being able to do so, but not this week. Amazon Prime subscribers will be able to watch 11 games this year (including the Minnesota Vikings vs. New Orleans Saints on Christmas Day). The online retailer has struck a deal with Fox to air select Thursday night games. The first co-aired game occurs Oct. 8, with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers facing the Chicago Bears. They’ll be featured in the Prime Video section and Amazon will also offer the NFL Network pregame show before each game at 7:30 p.m. ET.
If you don’t have Prime, you can sign up for a 30-day free trial.
Does the NFL offer any viewing packages to watch the games I want?
Three, in fact:
The NFL App will let you stream games that are being broadcast locally in your market on Sundays. If you want to watch an ‘out of market’ game, you’ve got two choices.
NFL Game Pass
There are couple hitches with this service. You can’t use it to watch live games, but you can watch anything once its main broadcast ends. There’s a seven-day free trial, after which you’re looking at a $100 charge per season.
NFL Sunday Ticket
DirecTV customers have access to it, but if you’re not a subscriber and live in an area where it’s not available, you can watch any NFL game live, online or on TV for $73.49 per month or $293.36 for the entire season.
NFL streams in the US
Looking at the NFL 2021-22 schedule, you can see that games will air on a wide range of services and channels, including old standbys like ESPN, NFL Network and your local FOX, NBC and CBS affiliates.
Just like last season, ESPN has Monday Night Football and NBC will have Sunday Night Football. CBS gets AFC games on Sunday afternoons, and FOX will have the NFC games. Amazon Prime Video has some Thursday Night Football games, while the NFL Network will continue to offer a bunch of games throughout the year.
So, that makes it really easy to recommend where cord-cutters should turn to watch the NFL season: Fubo TV. Built for all things sports, Fubo has all three of those local broadcasters, plus ESPN and NFL Network. That’s why it’s one of the best streaming services.
NFL streams in the UK
You’re going to want Sky Sports for watching NFL games in the U.K. The Sky Sports NFL channel (which will feature more than 100 live games this season) and Sky Sports Main Event are the primary destinations for your viewing pleasure.
Sky Sports NFL will pack a lot of content. Specifically, expect at least 5 live games per week, with “first-pick exclusive games … in the 6pm and 9pm slot every Sunday” (according to Sky) and every Thursday, Sunday and Monday Night Football game. It’s also getting NFL RedZone, and NFL Network programming, including Good Morning Football and Total Access.
Also expect documentaries “and other content” via NFL Films and NBC Sports, and original Sky Sports programming about the NFL.
If you’re an existing Sky customer, you can get all of that with the Sky Sports Complete Pack, for £39 per month.
If you’re not looking to spend that much, you can get a less comprehensive Sky Sports pass from Now TV. Daily, weekly and monthly passes range from £9.99 to £33.99.
NFL streams in Canada
Get in, folks, we’re going to Da Zone. Or to be more specific, Canadian football fans will need DAZN to watch the NFL 2021-22 season. DAZN is trying to get GamePass rights, but that has not been announced yet.
