As NFL nears the end of its regular season, the Oakland Raiders and the Denver Broncos are lacing up their cleats for the last “Monday Night Football” game of 2018 on Monday night.
The Week 16 showdown is scheduled for tonight at 5:15 p.m. PT/8:15 p.m. ET at the Oakland Coliseum in Oakland, California.
However, not everyone has the cash to put down $50+ on a satellite subscription to watch the game. But with more consumers turning to connected TVs and mobile devices for their daily dose of entertainment, the National Football League has made it easier for cord-cutters and cord-nevers to get their football fix without emptying out their piggy bank.
While fans can watch this upcoming “Monday Night Football” game on the NFL Network, which is available on streaming platforms like FuboTV, DirecTV Now, and Sling TV — they all charge a monthly subscription fee. The cheapest of these services is Sling TV, which includes the channel in its “Blue” package for $25 per month. Of course, consumers can get around paying the monthly service fee by taking advantage of the free trial period that most of these platforms offer.
But if $25 per month doesn’t fit into your budget or canceling the service after its trial period is too much of a hassle, there is another way to watch the game without spending a dime.
Anyone with a smartphone can download the NFL or Yahoo Sports app and enjoy tonight’s game at no cost. The same goes for all in market games including regular season and playoff games, and even the Super Bowl. The NFL announced the news in February.
