How to watch games

Football fans have a few options for keeping up with all of the action on the Week 2 NFL preseason schedule. One option is of course television. Many cable and satellite providers include ESPN and NFL Network as part of their channel lineups. Live streaming of these channels may be available through WatchESPN website or apps, as well as any NFL Network compatible apps. There's also NFL Game Pass subscription service to consider.

For a free NFL live streaming option, anyone with a hi-speed internet connection should consider SlingTV. A free one-week trial is available through for any new customers. The service includes ESPN and ESPN2 on the Sling Orange channel package and NFL Network on the Sling Blue package.

The Sling Blue selection of channels also features NFL Redzone. Fans should choose the channel package they want to test for one week, but keep in mind NFL Network will show more games this week than ESPN.
