Re: Now to watch live NFL games for free on Roku TV

Get a $5-50 digital amplified indoor antenna and connect it to your TV (available at Walmart/Best Buy/Amazon/etc), and receive the OTA channels in your market.

Otherwise you'll need to subscribe to a TV provider (Cable/Sat/Internet) to use app-based streaming generally speaking (some apps/services may allow limited free viewing).

The only legal free streaming of the NFL is if you have Xfinity Internet and Flex, you can watch Peacock TV Premium free streams of NBC's NFL games.

For CBS games streaming, Paramount+ plan that includes local CBS is $10/month.

There is no free streaming of ESPN or Fox games.

You can watch local stations with an antenna, as @StreamerUser, but that's not really streaming, just watching TV via antenna.

I subscribe to the Xfinity Internet service. What is Flex?

Re: Now to watch live NFL games for free on Roku TV

Today I subscribed to Paecock TV Standard edition and I looked for a list of NFL games to be broadcast.  I found a list of games to be played on Sunday that are to be broadcast, but I would like to watch the New England Patriots games.  I  looked for a list that would show the date and time of their games to be broadcast and I couldn't find anything, so I tried to use Help,  It said "Agent will be with you" I waited, no agent came.   Do you know where I can post a question concerning where to find a schedule of NFL games to be broadcast on Peacock  TV Standard edition?
