Watch Seahawks vs Falcons Live Stream via Sling TV
Currently, the best way to watch the Seahawks vs Falcons game online is to use Sling TV.
So, what is Sling TV? Simply put, it’s an affordable way to watch many of your favorite channels without having to pay a fortune for cable TV. Plans start at just $20 a month, with no contract, and offer at least 30+ channels. Unlike cable, the service works over the internet, so you can actually use it from anywhere in the USA, so long as you have a compatible device.
Most devices support Sling TV. You can watch on your TV via a streaming device, such as a Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, Xbox, etc. Don’t have one? Sign up for 1 month of Sling TV and you’ll get a FREE Roku Express! There’s also a discounted Apple TV deal, if you prefer. You can also watch on your computer or laptop, your mobile device, select smart TVs, and more.
To stream the Seahawks vs Falcons game, you’ll want to get the “Sling Blue” package, which is $25 a month. This package includes 40+ channels, with FOX streaming included in select markets. The game this weekend will air on FOX, so if you live in one of the supported areas you’ll be able to stream it no problem. See the full Sling TV channel list here.
Sling TV also offers a free 7-day trial, so you can test things out without spending a dime. The service is contract-free, and easy to cancel.
Use DIRECTV NOW to Watch Seahawks vs Falcons Online
Another great service that you can use to catch the Seahawks vs Falcons game live stream is a new online streaming service called DIRECTV NOW. Just launched a few months ago, DIRECTV NOW is brought to you by DIRECTV/AT&T, but it does not require a cable or satellite subscription.
Like Sling TV, DIRECTV NOW works over the internet. You’ll need a compatible device, such as an Apple TV, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, computer, mobile device, etc. DIRECTV NOW does also offer some free device deals, when you sign up for multiple months at once. Our review of DIRECTV NOW has more info.
The basic package is $35 a month, and includes 60+ channels. FOX is included in select markets. If you’re looking for a lot of channels, DIRECTV NOW is a great choice, offering up to 100+ channels in the larger packages. With that said, it’s more expensive than Sling TV, so there are trade-offs. DIRECTV NOW offers a free 7-day trial to start things off.
Stream the Seahawks vs Falcons Game Online with PlayStation Vue
Another similar service that will also offer the Seahawks vs Falcons live stream (in select markets) is PlayStation Vue. Offered by Sony, this service is now nationwide and available on most devices, including streaming devices, PlayStation consoles and more. Mobile viewing outside the home is restricted, however, which is one big downside of Vue.
The basic package from Vue (review here) offers 45+ channels, including FOX in some areas. Prices start from $30 a month, and plans are contract-free. It’s a good service, but right now Sling TV and DIRECTV NOW are better overall.
Use an Antenna to Watch the Falcons vs Seahawks Game
Surprisingly, there’s an easy way to watch the Seahawks vs Falcons live stream for free, without any sort of subscription. All you need is a good over-the-air antenna, and you should be able to pick up FOX live. This will only work if you live within the broadcasting range of your local FOX affiliate, but it’s a totally free way to watch. Some people may also want to record the game using a DVR for added convenience.
