Channel: FOX
Live stream: Sling TV (free trial available) or DIRECTV NOW

This weekend is quite a treat for NFL fans: four key games, which will decide who faces off in the AFC and NFC championships. This afternoon at 4:40 p.m., the Packers and Cowboys will take the field in Texas and put it all on the line. As a fan, you definitely won’t want to miss this one – and you can still enjoy the Packers vs Cowboys live stream, even if you don’t have cable.

How, you ask? Well, there are a couple different ways to stream the Packers vs Cowboys game online. The services below provide the easiest methods.

Use Sling TV to Watch Packers vs Cowboys Online Live

With a service called Sling TV, you can watch many of your favorite TV channels live, just like if you had cable – except without the sky high price and long-term commitment. Sling’s best package for NFL fans is only $25 a month, and includes over 40 channels. Better yet, it’s contract free, meaning you can cancel at any point, and you never pay for more than a month at a time.

The Packers vs Cowboys game live stream is set to air on FOX, which is a channel offered by Sling TV. FOX is only available in select markets, however, while most other channels are nationwide. If you do live in an area where FOX is offered, you’ll be able to stream the Packers vs Cowboys game online easily. Learn more in our Sling TV review.

Sling TV works over the internet, and you’ll need a compatible device to use it. You can of course watch on your computer or mobile device, but for the best viewing experience, you’ll probably want to watch on your TV. To do that, you’ll need an Xbox console or a compatible streaming device, like a Chromecast, Roku, etc. Sling TV will actually give you a Roku if you prepay for 1 month of Sling; which is a pretty killer deal, considering the Roku is worth more than 1 month of Sling costs!

Watch Packers vs Cowboys Live Stream via DIRECTV NOW

DIRECTV NOW is another live streaming service that works over the internet. Functionally, it’s very similar to Sling TV: you sign up, connect to a compatible device, and you get live TV stations directly to your device. You can watch from anywhere you have internet, from most devices. The service does not require a contract or long-term commitment, and is very easy to use.

Like Sling, DIRECTV NOW includes FOX streaming, but again, only in some areas. The basic package is $35 per month, and offers a staggering 60+ channels. With over 100 channels available in total, there’s no shortage of stuff to watch on DIRECTV NOW (full channel list here).

DIRECTV NOW offers a free 7 day trial for new customers


Use PlayStation Vue to Stream the Packers vs Cowboys Game Live

The third and final option is PlayStation Vue. This service, like the others we discussed, lets you watch live TV channels over the internet, without a cable subscription. No contract is required, and rates start at a reasonable $30 a month.

NBC streaming is available in some areas, and in some packages of Vue, which will be useful for the Packers vs Cowboys live stream, and Playoffs streaming in general. PlayStation Vue works on most streaming devices and PlayStation consoles, but do note that you can’t use it to watch on mobile devices while away from home – both Sling TV and DIRECTV NOW allow this, so that’s definitely a downside of Vue. See our PlayStation Vue review for the full scoop.
