How to watch 'Monday Night Football'
"MNF" games are set to be broadcast on ESPN now through 2033, so if you want to watch "Monday Night Football," there's just no getting around it; you'll need access to ESPN. Every game of the season (and preseason) will air on ESPN, except for tonight's game.
How to watch ESPN
ESPN is included in most cable packages and in plenty of deluxe streaming subscriptions with a live TV component, including DirectTV Stream, Fubo TV, Hulu + Live TV and Sling TV. If you have a cable package but aren't sure if it includes ESPN, you can try signing in with your TV provider here.
If you want to watch NFL games, including "Monday Night Football," exclusively on your mobile device or tablet, NFL+ has you covered. Starting at $5 per month or $30 annually, an NFL+ subscription gives you mobile or tablet access to live local and primetime regular season and postseason games, live game audio for every game and more. You'll also get live out-of-market preseason games across a broader range of devices.
DirecTV Stream isn't cheap, but it offers all the networks you'll need for the 2022 NFL season, including ESPN, ABC and ESPN Deportes. DirecTV Stream's least-expensive tier, called "Entertainment," offers CBS, NBC, Fox and ESPN for $70 a month. But get this: Subscribers to the "Choice" tier and above get all that, plus regional sports networks and no-extra-cost access to 2022 NFL Sunday Ticket Max, a plan that streams every live out-of-market Sunday game (and usually runs $395).
Right now, DirectTV Stream is offering $20 off your first two months of any package, meaning you'll only have to pay $50 for your first two months of the "Entertainment" tier, or $70 for the "Choice" tier.
FuboTV is a sports-centric streaming service that offers access to almost every NFL game of the season. Packages include CBS, Fox, NBC, ESPN, NFL Network, NFL RedZone and more.
In addition to NFL football, FuboTV offers MLB, NBA, NHL, MLS and international soccer games.
Hulu + Live TV: Save $60
A $70 monthly subscription to Hulu+ Live TV offers access to all the platforms airing and streaming 2022 NFL games, including ESPN an ABC -- except for "Thursday Night Football," which you'll need Amazon Prime Video for.
Right now, in celebration of the 2022 NFL season, Hulu is offering $20 off per month for your first three months of Hulu + Live TV -- that's $60 in savings. New subscribers and those who canceled their Hulu subscription over one month ago are eligible for this Hulu + Live TV promo, which runs from September 6 through October 10, 2022.
YouTube TV offers streaming coverage and pricing similar to Hulu+ Live TV's, with the added bonus of a cable TV-esque channel grid. A basic subscription costs $65 a month. It's currently being offered (to new users only) for $55 a month for the first three months.
Sling TV is a live-TV streamer. For the NFL season, Sling's "Orange & Blue" tier will get you almost all of the networks you need to watch every game -- including ABC and ESPN -- and at a relative bargain of $50 a month. Note: The "Orange & Blue" tier will not get you CBS games, or Amazon Prime Video's "Thursday Night Football."
Still interested? Sling offers new users half off their first month of any package, including the "Orange & Blue" tier.
ESPN+ will simulcast some of ESPN's "MNF" games, but it includes access to very few live NFL games. During the 2022 NFL season, ESPN+ will exclusively broadcast one single game: Denver Broncos vs. Jacksonville Jaguars on October 30. (The game will take place at Wembley Stadium in London at 9:30 a.m. ET.)
This means, if you truly want to the ability to stream every single game of the season, you'll need access to ESPN+ -- at least for the month of October. The $7 per month streaming service does not currently offer a free trial.
Another way you can gain access to ESPN+ is through the Disney+ bundle, which includes Disney+, Hulu's most basic ad-supported plan and ESPN+ for $14 a month. If you're wondering what else you can watch with the Disney+ bundle, check out our guide onand .
