And there are more ways than ever to capture the only NFL game in town tonight. Tonight's game starts at 8:20 PM ET on Fox, the NFL network, Twitch, Yahoo and Amazon Prime Video . This is how cordcutters can watch Thursday night football without cable – as well as the rest of the NFL games this season on Monday evening and Sunday.
How to watch on Fox (and how to get 4K)
Fox & # 39; s Thursday night football broadcast will be available to stream on live TV streaming services that carry your local Fox station (see below), as well as via an antenna, cable or satellite.
New for 2019 is the possibility to watch Thursday evening football in 4K. Traditional cable and satellite companies such as DirecTV, Altice & Optimum, Comcast & Xfinity, Verizon Fios and T-Mobile & # 39; s TVision all offer 4K versions of the game if you have a compatible set-top box. Moreover, FuboTV streaming service allows subscribers to watch in the higher resolution on most 4K streaming devices.
The disadvantage? The game itself is not a native 4K stream. Instead, it will be produced in 1080p with HDR and then converted to 4K HDR.
The Fox Sports app (not to be confused with the Fox Sports Go app) will also stream the game in 4K on the Apple TV 4K and certain 4K Roku devices, but you have a cable, satellite login – or live TV streaming provider required to access the stream in the app.
What about Amazon Prime Video?
In addition to Fox and the NFL network, Amazon will stream the game live to Prime Video subscribers. You need the Prime Video app, but luckily it is available on a large number of devices, including:
Fire TV and TV Sticks
Apple TV & # 39; s
Android TV  Smart TVs (Vizio, LG, Samsung)
Game consoles such as the Xbox One and PlayStation 4
iOS and Android phones and tablets  Fire Tablets
Prime Video now also supports Chromecast, for casting a phone or tablet to a TV.
Amazon & # 39; s broadcast will have the choice to listen to Fox's Joe Buck and Troy Aikman during the call or switch to a Hannah Storm and Andrea Kremer broadcast team. Scottish and Irish broadcasters Derek Rae and Tommy Smyth, previously heard playing football on ESPN, will also be an option.
Features such as X-Ray, which offers the NFL & # 39; s Next Gen Stats, will be available to viewers on Android, iOS or Fire TV.
Et tu, Twitch?
Those without Prime or a subscription to a video service can stream the Fox broadcast of Thursday Night Football on Twitch for free on the channel of the streaming service / primevideo. In addition to the official broadcast, Twitch fans can watch the co-streams with a large number of personalities of the site on their own respective Twitch channels.
A complete list of co-streams for each Twitch game can be found on the Twitch blog.
How can I view my local team's NFL games?
For teams in your local market – Steelers fans in Pittsburgh, Dolphins fans in Miami, and so on – you can watch your local team's matches on an important local network channel.
Games are usually broadcast on Sunday afternoon on CBS and Fox. National broadcasts are shown on NBC on Sunday evening, ESPN on Monday evening and the NFL network on Thursday evening. Most Thursday evening games are simulcast on Fox, Amazon Prime and Twitch. (Note that CBS is the parent company of CNET.)
There is also NFL RedZone to consider, a channel that comes alive every fall and shows live coverage from all over the competition with the promise to make every touchdown of every Sunday show afternoon game. It's a great way to view out-of-market action and essential display for GM & # 39; s fantasy football.

Other things to know about live TV streaming services:
PlayStation Vue offers all networks with NFL games and you can add the NFL RedZone channel for an additional $ 10 per month. The $ 55 core plan is the cheapest option with the five channels NFL fans need – CBS, Fox, NBC, ESPN and NFL Network – and the $ 10 per month Sports Pack gives you NFL RedZone. The core plan is currently discounted to $ 45 per month during the first two months.
Sling TV distributes its live NFL options over its $ 25-per-month Blue plan and $ 25-per-month Orange plan, forcing NFL fans to make a tough decision or encourage them to jump on for both $ 40 a month.
Sling Blue contains Thursday and Sunday games on NBC, Fox and the NFL network. Sling Orange contains Monday night games on ESPN. And if you want to add the NFL RedZone, you need Sling Blue. Blue – but not orange – subscribers can add the Sports Extra package of $ 10 per month, including NFL RedZone. Sling TV does not offer CBS, which usually has AFC games on Sunday afternoons.
Sling & # 39; s packages receive a 40% discount for the first month.
Hulu with Live TV costs $ 45 per month and includes CBS, Fox, NBC and ESPN but no NFL Network or RedZone.
YouTube TV costs $ 50 a month and includes CBS, Fox, NBC and ESPN, but no NFL Network or RedZone.
FuboTV costs $ 55 a month and includes CBS, Fox, NBC and NFL Network but not ESPN. You miss Monday evening football on ESPN, but you get the games on Sunday afternoon (CBS and Fox), Sunday evening (NBC) and Thursday evening (NFL Network). The Sports Plus package of $ 9 per month adds NFL RedZone.
CBS All Access costs $ 6 a month and lets you watch AFC matchups on Sunday afternoons. It provides a good add-on for Sling TV subscribers who do not receive CBS.
This season, Prime Video will stream the Thursday-evening football matches broadcast on Fox. The games on Prime Video are also streamed live on Amazon's Twitch, which means that you don't need an Amazon Prime membership to stream Thursday evening football.
Live streaming on your phone with the NFL Mobile and Yahoo app
In previous years, only Verizon Wireless subscribers were able to stream games on their phones with the NFL Mobile app. Now everyone can get a live NFL stream on a phone, regardless of the provider. You can only watch on your phone and only see local, in-market games and national broadcasts on Thursday, Sunday and Monday evenings.
National and local games are also streamed via the Yahoo and Yahoo Sports app.
