The Seahawks made a deep run in the playoffs last season. With veteran quarterback Russell Wilson at the helm once again, the Seahawks are expected to be a frontrunner in their division.
Seahawks fans don’t need to worry over expensive and restrictive cable subscriptions anymore. Now there’s more ways to stream live football than ever, and it’s getting easier all the time.
We’ll cover the best streaming platforms for Seahawks fans, including which network channels will have most of the games, and what sports channels will be needed to make sure you never miss a touchdown.
What channels show the Seattle Seahawks games?
This season, most of the Seahawks games will be broadcast on either FOX, CBS, or NBC. According to the schedule, ten games will air on FOX, 2 games on CBS, and 2 games on NBC.
Aside from the regular network games, the week 11 game against Arizona will air on NFL Network, and the week 12 game against Philadelphia will air on ESPN.
The Seahawks games broadcast on standard network channels will be easy to catch for fans in the Seattle area—all you’ll need is a digital TV antenna to tune in. But Seahawks fans living in other cities might need streaming services to watch these games. And games on ESPN and NFL Network will not be available without some kind of subscription.
The five channels you’ll need to watch every single Seahawks game are FOX, CBS, NBC, ESPN, and NFL Network, so this review will focus on the streaming services you’ll need to access those channels.
Next up, we’ll look at top streaming services side-by-side. Each streaming service gives subscribers access to different channels, so it’s important to pay attention to the package you’ll receive before signing up for a subscription.

How to watch the Seattle Seahawks on Hulu + Live TV
Hulu is one of the most popular streaming platforms today. With the Live TV add-on, you can watch Seahawks games as they unfold.
The catch here is the Live TV add-on service. Without it, you won’t be able to watch any of the games. If you purchase Hulu + Live TV, you’ll get all the standard channels you need to watch the Seahawks—FOX, CBS, and NBC.
Hulu + Live TV subscribers also have access to ESPN. Unfortunately, there’s no way to get NFL Network with Hulu Live TV, so you’ll have to use a different service to watch the week 11 game against the Cardinals. The same goes for all Thursday evening games and Saturday doubleheaders broadcast on NFL Network.
One nice feature that comes with Hulu Live TV is the ability to record live TV so you can watch it later. Subscribers are allowed to record 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage, included in the Live TV subscription. You can even upgrade the storage to 200 hours for additional cost.
Hulu + Live TV starts at $54.99 per month, and the company offers a free trial so you can try it out first. If you plan to watch the games on your smart TV, you might need to pick up a streaming device such as Roku or Amazon Fire TV Stick.
How to watch the Seattle Seahawks on fuboTV
fuboTV is another service live tv streaming. The company focuses much of their services on live sports.
With a fuboTV subscription, you’ll have access to regular channel programming, including the channels we want—FOX, CBS, and NBC. You’ll be able to catch most of the games using these channels.
The place where fuboTV stands apart from the competition is the specialty NFL stations that are accessible to subscribers. Not only will you have access to NFL Network, but subscribers will also be able to watch NFL RedZone, which is a big plus for fans who want to watch all the scoring action.
As of this season, fuboTV subscribers can now watch ESPN through the streaming service. The change is a result of a new distribution deal with Disney, who owns ESPN. The new deal means that all the channels needed to watch Seahawks are now available under one subscription.
Another plus is the 30 hours of Cloud DVR space that comes with a Fubo TV subscription. You can use these hours to record games and watch them later on, which is really nice if you have to work during the games.
A fuboTV subscription starts at $59.99 per month and offers subscribers a free trial. Just remember to look into getting a streaming device if you plan to watch on a smart TV.
How to watch the Seattle Seahawks on YouTube TV
Another option for live streaming football is YouTube TV, which is Google’s TV-streaming platform. Keep in mind that this service is different from YouTube Premium.
Like the other options we profiled, regular channels are included in a YouTube TV subscription, so you’ll be able to watch all the games on FOX, CBS, and NBC. This platform also gives you access to ESPN.
The main channel that’s missing here is NFL Network, which is important for watching the Seahawks’ week 12 game. If you want to stream the Seahawks that game, another service is required.
Like NFL Network, NFL RedZone is also missing from YouTube TV, which might not bother some Seahawks fans.
One big advantage of this service is the on-demand feature. YouTube TV subscribers get unlimited DVR storage space, which means you can record all the Seahawks games you want without fear of running out of memory on your account.
A YouTube TV subscription will cost you $64.99 per month, after a free trial. Just like the other streaming platforms, YouTube TV may require a streaming device like Roku to work with a smart TV.
