How to watch the Las Vegas Raiders without cable in 2020

nfl

With just one postseason appearance since 2003, the Raiders were ready for a change. Having officially said goodbye to the Black Hole, they’re ready to see if what happens in Vegas can take them all the way to a Super Bowl. And if you’re a member of Raider Nation, you want to make sure you know how to watch the Raiders as they set up shop at Allegiant Stadium. 

That doesn’t mean you need to keep paying that hefty cable bill, though. You can live stream Las Vegas Raiders games without shelling out to traditional TV providers. We’ve rounded up the best ways to stream the Raiders heading into this season. 

What channels show Las Vegas Raiders games?

Over the course of the 2020-2021 season, Raiders games will be aired on CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC, and the NFL Network. Most games will be on CBS, but FOX will grab a couple of matchups. Per this season’s game rights, NBC airs Sunday Night Football, while ESPN gets the Raiders’ Monday Night Football matchup against the Saints on September 21. The NFL Network is airing quite a few of the games around the end of the year, including the Raiders’ visit to the LA Chargers on December 17. 

Since CBS has the rights to air the most Raiders games this year, their streaming service — CBS All Access — is a solid choice if you’re looking for a low-cost ($5.99 a month) way to live stream Las Vegas Raiders games. 

But if you don’t want to miss a single Raiders game, you’re better off choosing one of the bigger streaming services. We compared some of the best options for you.

How to watch the Las Vegas Raiders on Hulu Live TV

If you already subscribe to Hulu’s on-demand library, you might be wondering how to watch the Raiders with their service. To live stream Las Vegas Raiders matchups with your Hulu account, you’ll need to upgrade to their Hulu + Live TV package. 

This runs you $54.99 a month, but it gets you access to all the networks airing each Raiders game this year except the NFL Network game on December 17. Plus, that price gives you 

access to Hulu’s entire on-demand catalog, including the growing library of Hulu Originals (like the recently hyped movie, Palm Springs).

Hulu + Live TV gets you access to about 60 channels, and Hulu personalizes your channels so you get local TV just like you would with cable. You’ll also be able to tune into popular channels like Animal Planet, Bravo, the Discovery Channel, FX, HGTV, National Geographic, and TLC. Plus, you’ll get channels for the kids like Cartoon Network and Boomerang. 

Hulu offers free 7-day trials for their Hulu + Live TV plans.

How to watch the Las Vegas Raiders on fuboTV

If you’re playing fantasy football this season, you’re probably going to want NFL RedZone. The problem? We didn’t find any streaming services that offer both CBS and RedZone.

fuboTV does have ESPN, FOX, and ESPN, though, along with the NFL Network. To get every game of the season, you could combine fuboTV’s Family package (which is $64.99 a month) with CBS All Access. That would bring your monthly fees to stream every single Raiders game to just over $70 a month. 

With the Family package, you’ll also get popular channels like A&E, Food Network, HGTV, FX, the Disney Channel, the Discovery Channel, CNBC, Vice, and more. All told, this package gets you 110 channels plus 500 hours of space on fuboTV’s Cloud DVR. 

But if you want RedZone, you’ll need to upgrade to the fuboTV Ultra package, which costs $84.99 a month. This plan gives you 192 channels, including extras for sports lovers like the NHL Network, NBA TV, and the MLB Network. You’ll also get 9 Showtime® channels, plus the 500 hours of Cloud DVR space. 

You can test drive the Family plan for a week for free, but fuboTV doesn’t offer a free trial with their Ultra plan.

How to watch the Las Vegas Raiders on YouTube TV

If you’re still wondering how to watch the Raiders, it’s worth a look at YouTube TV. This service costs $64.99 but it gets you more channels than Hulu (YouTube TV has more than 85 channels, while Hulu’s channel number is closer to 65). Plus, you can record on YouTube TV without storage limits. 

Like Hulu, YouTube TV customizes your channel lineup based on where you live so you get your local channels. On top of that, you get a broad range of popular picks like AMC, Adult Swim, Bravo, CNN, Cartoon Network, the Discovery Channel, the Food Network, FX, Nickelodeon, TLC, and more. 

With YouTube TV, you can live stream Las Vegas Raiders games throughout the season, but you will miss their Chargers matchup in December because it’s on the NFL Network.

While you’ll miss out on the Chargers game, you can easily fill your watchtime with other sports. The YouTube TV channel lineup includes the NBA and MLB networks. 

Clearly, there are a bunch of paths to explore if you’re curious how to watch the Raiders without cable. After you cut the cord, you’ve got a handful of services you can stream the Raiders all season long.
