Where can I watch the Green Bay Packers play live?
The Green Bay Packers will be playing on CBS, FOX, and NBC. So, we have suggestions on how you can watch your Packers if you’re in or out of the region.
You’ll still be able to watch Matt LaFleur’s squad come to fruition from across the country after a disappointing loss in the NFC Championship Game last year. (From the looks of the 49ers this season, cheeseheads shouldn’t be stressing.)

YouTube TV is the best way to stream Packers games
YouTube TV is our favorite live TV streaming service because it’s an all-around great service. For a fair price, not only will you get CBS, FOX, and NBC to yell at the TV while watching the Packers games, but you’ll also get the following:
- Perfect for NFL fans, you’ll get ESPN and NFL Network among 85 channels
- Perfect for sports fans, you’ll get NBA TV and MLB Network
- An unlimited DVR storage space that saves for nine months
- On-demand content
Not many live TV streaming services have NFL Network, NBA TV, and MLB Network.
If you want the best channel in the world, YouTube TV is one of the few services that offer the NFL RedZone Channel. Perfect for fantasy football players, get this channel for $10.99 per month with the Sports Plus add-on, and you’ll get to see every moment a team is in the red zone during the Sunday morning and afternoon games. (So worth it, in our opinion.)

DISH also has the three channels Packers fans need
With CBS, FOX, and NBC, you’ll be able to watch your Packers every week of the season with DISH’s America’s Top 120+ plan.
If you’re interested in getting satellite TV, DISH is a great option because its pricing stays the same during your contract, there’s a no-contract option, and you’ll get 190 channels including, ESPN and NFL Network.
Get that satellite dish installed, and you’ll be able to watch Rodgers throw more touchdown passes to Davante Adams when he makes a comeback (and get us 40 points for our fantasy team again).
Check out more info on DISH in our review that covers everything from fees to user experience.
Xfinity TV is the best cable TV option
If you want cable and want to watch the Packers sustain their success for the rest of the season, get Xfinity TV.
Xfinity’s Starter package ($71/month) will give you the three channels you need among the 140 it offers, so you can watch Rodgers vs. Brady or the Packers vs. the highly-ranked Indianapolis Colts defense.
Check out our Xfinity TV review if you think this might be the service you’d like to watch all of your Packers games with.
Hulu + Live TV is best for Packers and on-demand fans
Our second live TV streaming service suggestion is easily Hulu + Live TV. For about $5 less than YouTube TV, you can get CBS, FOX, and NBC so you never miss a Packers snap.
But let us highlight some ups and downs of Hulu Live compared to YouTube TV to see which service is perfect for you:
- Hulu Live has 20 channels fewer than YouTube TV.
- Hulu Live has a lot more on-demand content than YouTube TV.
- Hulu Live doesn’t have NFL Network.
- Hulu Live gives you a cheaper option ($55/month), if you don’t mind ads (if you don’t mind, you’re a rare species).
AT&T TV NOW gives you Packers coverage, but for a hefty price
And last but not least (or maybe it is …), AT&T TV NOW’s PLUS plan has your local CBS, FOX, and NBC channels. But don’t expect many sports channels with this live TV streaming service.
The PLUS package only comes with a whopping four sports channels (insert big eyes/stunned emoji). And it’s $55 for more than 45 channels, making it the most expensive dollar-to-channel ratio in the live TV streaming service industry.
So, you might be wondering why we’re suggesting it.
It’s perfect for those who want a traditional TV experience and lots of channels (AT&T TV NOW offers up to 140 channels). Check out our AT&T TV NOW Review if you want more info on your future Packers-watching experience.
How can I watch my home team when I’m out of the region?
We have four suggestions for you Packers die-hard fans who don’t live in Wisconsin: NFL SUNDAY TICKET, NFL RedZone Channel, NFL Game Pass, and Amazon Prime Video.
But keep in mind, they all have their caveats.
NFL SUNDAY TICKET
NFL SUNDAY TICKET is only available with DIRECTV, the satellite TV service. It’s the only service that gets you all out-of-market NFL games (may I repeat: all out-of-market NFL games). Sounds too good to be true, right?
You just have to be OK with DIRECTV’s second-year price hikes … but it could be worth it if you’re a Green Bay Packers fan who lives in Portland, Oregon.
If you sign up for the CHOICE plan ($64.99/month) or above, you can get NFL SUNDAY TICKET for free for one season (which is normally about $400.00/season). Get all the answers to your questions about this service in our detailed review.
NFL RedZone Channel
We have already mentioned that you can get NFL RedZone Channel with YouTube TV, so don’t forget it’s an option! The caveat is you don’t get to see the full game, just the highlights in real-time (along with every other game’s highlights).
NFL Game Pass
NFL Game Pass is something you could get with NFL SUNDAY TICKET MAX, or you can get it as a standalone service for $100. But this service is for those who don’t mind watching the full game after it’s already aired.
NFL Game Pass gives you access to full broadcasted replays that you can watch anytime, even months after the game was on TV. You’ll also be able to watch 45-minute condensed games for when you have limited time. And you’ll also get access to all-22 angle coaches film for when you feel like breaking down film like the pro coaches.
Amazon Prime Video
And lastly, the Packers play on Thursday, November 5. Why does this matter? Well, if you have an Amazon Prime membership, it matters.
Thursday night games are featured on Amazon Prime Video, so you’ll be able to watch the Packers take on the San Francisco 49ers in Week 9 wherever you may be in the US.
Recap: What’s the best way to watch the Green Bay Packers?
If you want to stream the Packers games, there are three services that have CBS, FOX, and NBC:
- YouTube TV: $64.99/month with 85+ channels
- Hulu + Live TV: $54.99-$60.99/month with 65+ channels
