How to watch the 2024 NFL Draft without cable

The 2024 NFL Draft will be broadcast on ABC, ESPN and NFL Network. 

If your cable subscription doesn't carry ABC or ESPN, or you've cut the cord with your cable company, you can still watch this year's draft. Below are the platforms on which you can watch the 2024 NFL Draft.

Sling TV: The most cost-effective way to watch NFL football

One of the most cost-effective ways to stream the 2024 NFL Draft is through a subscription to Sling TV. To watch this year's draft, and NFL football next season, you'll need a subscription to the Orange tier, which includes ESPN. For access to more NFL games next season, upgrade to the Orange + Blue tier (recommended), which includes the games played on ABC, NBC and Fox, plus the NFL Network.

The Orange tier is normally $40 per month, but Sling TV has an offer for new subscribers where you can get your first month for $15. The Orange + Blue tier costs $35 for your first month, and $60 per month after that. You can save $30 when you pre-pay for three months of service on any tier. You can cancel anytime.

Note: Because Sling TV doesn't carry CBS, you won't be able to watch CBS-aired live sports, including the NFL. If you're looking for one live TV streaming platform to watch all your favorite sports, we suggest a subscription to Hulu + Live TV.

Top features of Sling TV Orange + Blue tier:

  • There are 46 channels to watch in total, including ABC (local affiliate), ESPN, NFL Network, TNT and TBS.
  • Sling TV includes TNT, a channel you don't get on Fubo.
  • All subscription tiers include 50 hours of cloud-based DVR storage.

You can watch the NFL Draft on Fubo. Fubo is a sports-centric streaming service that offers access to ABC, ESPN and NFL Network, in addition to almost every NFL game next season.

Sports fans will want to consider adding on the $7.99 per month Fubo Extra package, which includes MLB Network, NBA TV, NHL Network, Tennis Channel, SEC Network and more channels with live games. Or upgrade to the Fubo Elite tier and get all the Fubo Extra channels, plus the ability to stream in 4K, starting at $90 per month ($70 for the first month).

Watch the 2024 NFL Draft with a digital HDTV antenna


If you're cutting the cord to your cable company, you're not alone; in fact, you are in luck. You can still watch the NFL on TV with an affordable indoor antenna, which pulls in local over-the-air HDTV channels such as CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox, PBS, Univision and more. Here's the kicker: There's no monthly charge.

For anyone living in a partially blocked-off area (those near mountains or first-floor apartments), a digital TV antenna may not pick up a good signal -- or any signal at all. But for many homes, a digital TV antenna provides a seriously inexpensive way to watch NFL football without paying a cable company. Indoor TV antennas can also provide some much-needed TV backup if a storm knocks out your cable (or your cable company gets in a squabble with a network).

This amplified digital antenna can receive hundreds of HDTV channels, including ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, Fox and Univision and can filter out cellular and FM signals. It receives signals 360 degrees and delivers a high-quality picture in 4K, UHD and 1080 HDTV, top-tier sound and features a 10-foot digital coax cable. This Amazon best-selling antenna is currently on sale for $15 at Amazon, reduced from $18.
