NFL Sunday Night Football not only features one of the NFL’s top games each week, it’s the top rated TV show in the US.
NFL Sunday Night Football Games are broadcast by NBC and the broadcast crew of Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth, and Michelle Tafoya all return in 2021. Let’s take a look at the live streaming options for watching NFL Sunday Night Football.
Peacock is NBC video streaming service that currently offers 3 subscription levels, Free, Premium, and Premium Plus. Subscribers who choose the Premium ($4.99 / month) or the Premium Plus ($9.99 / month) can live stream all NFL Sunday Night Football games, including the NFL Kickoff game on Thursday September 9th, and Super Bowl on February 13th, 2022. Subscribers to the Free version of Peacock can only watch with a verified TV provider subscription.
Online Video Services
Most of the streaming TV services offer NBC as part of their packages. Sling, however, only offers NBC in select cities, so you’ll want to check the Sling help center to see if you are in one of those areas.
It’s important to note that NBC is available over-the-air, so an antenna is always a free option.
