The Cardinals went 5-10-1 last year, largely due to issues with the offensive line, but rookie Quarterback Klyer Murray persevered and went on to win 2019 Rookie of the Year.
The new season is fast approaching, and those who are interested in live streaming Arizona Cardinals games have plenty of options to choose from—no cable TV subscription required.
We’ll walk through which games you can see through local channels—and the ones that will require a streaming service subscription—so you can watch the Cardinals play throughout the season.
What channels show the Arizona Cardinals games?
Almost all of the Cardinals games this year will be on one of two channels—FOX and CBS. According to their schedule, the Cardinals will play 11 games on FOX and two games on CBS.
Aside from the two main channels, the week six Monday game will broadcast on ESPN, and the week 11 Thursday game will broadcast on the NFL Network. The channel for later games are still TBD.
If you’re located in the Cardinals market, then you can watch most of these games for free on local channels using a TV antenna, which are now made for smart TVs. If you’re located outside the market, you’ll need streaming service subscriptions.
Since most of the Cardinals games are on FOX and CBS, these are the two most important channels to consider when looking for a streaming package. We recommend checking out subscriptions at fuboTV and Hulu + Live TV first, since both services carry FOX and CBS, as well as other sports channels that will come in handy.
Next, we’ll dive into streaming platforms and which channels each service provides for football fans to watch their favorite teams play.

How to watch the Arizona Cardinals on Hulu + Live TV
Hulu is a video-streaming platform. The Hulu + Live TV add-on allows you to live stream NFL games.
Most of the Cardinals games air on FOX and CBS, and the national affiliates for both these channels are included with Hulu, as long as you buy the Live TV add-on. Without the add-on, you will not be able to watch live NFL games on Hulu.
In a few regions, Hulu also offers access to local CBS and FOX broadcasts. So some Cardinals fans should be able to watch the games on local broadcasts using Hulu, but check the details for your location before you plan to watch the games this way.
Keep in mind that the Thursday evening games and Saturday doubleheaders broadcast on NFL Network are not available with Hulu + Live TV.
Unfortunately, NFL Network and NFL Redzone are also unavailable with Hulu + Live TV. For those channels, you’ll need a separate service. But Sunday Night Football is broadcast on NBC, which can be streamed with Hulu + Live TV, and Monday Night Football is broadcast on ESPN is also available.
How to watch the Arizona Cardinals on fuboTV
fuboTV is a video-streaming platform with access to live sports channels.
Like Hulu, fuboTV offers access to FOX and CBS, so Cardinals fans can watch all of the regular broadcasts. But unlike Hulu, a fuboTV subscription gives fans access to the coveted NFL network, which is a big plus for accessing those hard-to-find broadcasts that might be unavailable through the regular channels.
Another advantage for sports fans is the NFL Redzone add-on that’s available to fuboTV subscribers. For an additional monthly fee, fuboTV offers NFL Redzone access, which comes with a 7-day free trial.
In past seasons, football fans with a fuboTV subscription have had to look elsewhere for access to ESPN channels, but it looks like that’s changing this year. Disney Media Networks, which owns the ESPN brand, recently announced a new distribution deal with fuboTV.
The deal will see all the ESPN channels available on fuboTV this year, which should amount to a fairly comprehensive solution for watching the NFL on a streaming platform. A fuboTV subscription starts at $59.99 per month and offers a free trial.
How to watch the Arizona Cardinals on YouTube TV
YouTube TV is Google’s live TV-streaming platform. Despite the name, YouTube TV is a separate service from the YouTube Premium.
With YouTube TV, you’ll have access to the all-important FOX and CBS channels, which will broadcast most of the Cardinals games. YouTube TV also gives subscribers access to games broadcast on NBC and ESPN.
Unfortunately, YouTube TV does not have a way to access the NFL Network or the NFL RedZone, which means you won’t be able to watch the exclusive Thursday Night Football games broadcast on NFL Network. You’ll need to find another platform if you’re interested in tuning in.
A YouTube TV subscription starts at $64.99 per month, after a free trial.
The Cardinals season is almost here, and the DeAndre Hopkins trade should definitely make things interesting this time around. But now that there’s streaming options to fit the needs of most fans, no cable TV subscription is required to live stream the Arizona Cardinals and see all the action as it plays out.
