Those who are fine with watching on a phone or tablet, meanwhile, can also use the Yahoo Sports app to stream sports that air on your local stations for free.

What about RedZone and NFL Network?

All of those services above, with the exception of DirecTV streams, offer the option to receive RedZone and the NFL Network. RedZone will typically require you to spend another $10 or $11 per month as an add-on.

If RedZone is all you care about, the cheapest option is to get Sling TV Blue for $35 per month and add the Sports Extra add-on for $11 per month. This gives you all the football channels with the exception of ESPN and CBS.
