NFL 2023 preview

How long does it take for the image of the Kansas City Chiefs fondling the Vince Lombardi Trophy to be seared into one’s brain? Six months should do it, and after a long offseason of eye-catching trades, wild-eyed trash talk, and eyebrow-raising reshuffles, it’s finally time for us to watch the 2023 NFL season unfold.

The high-grade power struggle between AFC trio Patrick Mahomes, Joe Burrow, and Josh Allen remains the league’s most tantalizing narrative, but Aaron Rodgers’ move to the Jets and the rise of Trevor Lawrence elevate the conference even further.

Mahomes’ Chiefs are, of course, in action against the revitalized Lions in the NFL Kickoff Game on Thursday, while Burrow’s Bengals will be involved in a scrap with game-of-the-week potential at the home of divisional rivals the Browns on Sunday. We’ll have to wait until Monday night to see Rodgers make his Jets bow.

Over in the NFC, the Eagles and 49ers once again look like forces to be reckoned with, while the Chargers could be a dark horse. The Broncos have parted ways with Nathaniel Hackett and brought in Sean Payton in an attempt to bring Russell Wilson back to life, as the Buccaneers and Baker Mayfield embark on a fresh adventure of their own.

Read as we explain how to watch NFL live streams from anywhere in the world, including ways to watch for free on 7Plus, My5, and Twitch, plus free trials you can take advantage of, and the best-value streaming services that have it all.

For the remainder of the fixtures, up to six NFL games are shown live on ESPN and Kayo Sports each week.

While ESPN is available via a Foxtel subscription, Kayo Sports is an ideal option if you don’t want the commitment of a lengthy (and pricey) contract.

It also gives you access to over 50 other sports including cricket, NRL, PGA Tour golf, F1… the list goes on! Handy if you don’t want to go all out on Fox.

For the complete package, NFL Game Pass is showing every game of the season live, with a subscription available for AU$28.99 per week or AU$279.99 per season.

How to watch the NFL from outside your country

We’ve set out how you can live stream NFL games in several countries around the world. However, if you’re away traveling for pleasure or work, you probably won’t be able to tune in like you usually would at home. This is the result of geo-blocking – best understood as digital borders that restrict certain services and content to specific parts of the world.

You can get around these digital borders by using one of the best VPNs, which can also offer robust protection from cybercriminals and government snooping. They’re really easy to use too.

Use a VPN to live stream NFL from anywhere:

ExpressVPN is the world’s top VPN right now We’ve taken the time to try out all the biggest VPN providers and we found ExpressVPN to be the pick of the bunch. It works with lots of devices and offers super-fast connections across its many servers.

Throw in its robust set of security features and ExpressVPN is the best all-around VPN for streaming – and perhaps best of all, it has a 30-day money-back guarantee plus 3 months FREE when you subscribe for a year.

Access ExpressVPN via your laptop, iPhone, tablet, Android phone, PlayStation, Xbox, and plenty more. Express is a do-it-all service that also benefits from 24/7 customer support.

How to use a VPN to watch the NFL

Using a VPN is as easy as one-two-three…

1. Download and install a VPN – As we say, our top choice is ExpressVPN.

2. Connect to the appropriate server location – open the VPN app, hit ‘choose location’, and select the appropriate place, e.g.: ‘Australia’ for 7Plus.

3. Go to the broadcaster’s stream – head to your home broadcaster’s site or app and watch as if you were at home – 7Plus for Aussies abroad.

NFL live stream: Watch in the US without cable

Coverage of the 2023/24 NFL season is available through a dizzying array of TV channels and streaming services, including NBC, Fox, CBS, ESPN, ESPN 3/ABC, Prime Video, NFL Network, Peacock TV, Paramount Plus, and Twitch.

Hard as it may be to believe, covering all your bases isn’t quite as tricky as it looks, even if you don’t want the commitment or expense of cable.

The best ways to watch the NFL without cable:

Sling TV is an OTT service that’s especially good for NFL fans.

The Sling Blue package offers local NBC and Fox channels in most major markets, as well as NFL Network, thereby covering a large number of NFL games including both primetime and local broadcasts. The usual cost is $45 a month, but if you’re new to the service you can get a discount on your first month.

An extra $15 a month for the combined Sling Blue + Orange bundle adds access to ESPN 1, 2, and 3 to your NFL viewing arsenal – as well as a raft of other premium channels.

A costlier but even more thorough alternative is FuboTV, which includes CBS, Fox, NBC, ESPN, ESPN 2, ABC, and NFL Network – all the TV channels you need to tune into the NFL this season.

NFL live stream in Canada

NFL fans in Canada have it pretty good, as streaming service DAZN provides coverage of every single game of the 2023/24 season, including the Super Bowl.

DAZN costs CA$ 29.99 a month or $199.99 a year. Away from home? No problem.

Not only do you get every single NFL game, but DAZN is also the exclusive Canadian streaming home of the Champions League, Europa League, and EFL Championship soccer!

It also comes with support for iOS, Android, Apple TV, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Roku, Xbox One, PS4, and laptop/PC streaming (including Mac devices).

TV coverage of select games is also available on linear Canadian TV, via CTV and TSN.

NFL live stream in the UK

Monday Night Football is shown for FREE on Channel 5 every week in the UK! That means you can live stream the action via My5, which is available on your laptop, or via apps for the likes of Android, iOS, PS4, Xbox, Roku, and Amazon Fire.

NFL fans in the UK can watch up to six games live each week on Sky Sports, which has a dedicated Sky Sports NFL channel and access to the live RedZone highlights show each Sunday.

Subscribers also get to watch on the move using the Sky Go app, which is available on nearly all modern phones, tablets, laptops, PCs, and consoles.

If you want to sign up for Sky Sports, you can check out our guide to Sky TV deals and packages for today’s best prices.

Don’t fancy being locked into a long, expensive contract? Consider the more flexible streaming option, Now, (formerly Now TV). Now sports passes start at £11.98.

Hardcore NFL fans may instead want to look at NFL Game Pass, which costs £14.99 per month or £150.99 for the season and shows every out-of-market game live.

Away from the UK but still want to catch the action? Use a VPN to live stream the NFL on your usual services as if you were at home.

Should you buy an NFL Game Pass for 2023?

NFL Game Pass is the National Football League’s dedicated streaming service, which allows die-hard football fans to watch every single game. It is now managed by DAZN worldwide.

Game Pass is geared towards international fans. In most of the NFL’s main international markets, a subscription will give you access to every preseason, regular season, and playoff game live, plus the Super Bowl and the league’s live highlights show, RedZone.

At the time of writing, access for the 2023 season costs £150.99 in the UK, and AU$279.99 in Australia but it varies from country to country. Those in Brazil, for example, pay the equivalent of only $80 (£65). All of these prices will likely fall throughout the season.

The only caveat for non-domestic markets (e.g. the UK) is that some games are subject to blackout restrictions due to deals with local pay-TV providers (e.g. Sky).

Relatively new to the landscape is NFL Plus, which is essentially a rebranded version of Game Pass for fans based in the US. It lets you live-stream select in-market regular season games and watch full-game replays right after they’ve finished, albeit only on phones and tablets.

An NFL Plus subscription starts at $6.99 per month, making it one of the cheapest ways to watch the NFL 2023-24 season.

When is Super Bowl 58?

Super Bowl 58 (also known as Super Bowl 2024 and Super Bowl LVIII) is set for Sunday, Feb 11, and will be played at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, the home of the Raiders.

The game will be televised nationally by CBS and Nickelodeon in the US and live-streamed on Paramount Plus.
