With NFL action back underway, being able to watch the NFL Network is imperative. Fortunately for cord cutters who don’t have cable but are looking to watch a live stream of the channel, doing so has never been easier.

While those with a cable log-in can watch the NFL Network via NFL.com, cord cutters can do watch it through an over-the-top streaming service, which allows you to watch a handful of channels for a monthly fee.

When it comes to these services, there are several that have NFL Network as a part of their channel packages: Fubo TV is the cheapest option, while Sling TV and PlayStation Vue offers some different pros and cons. All have free trials, so you can test them out at no cost.

Here’s a rundown of what these live streaming services provide, and how to sign up to start watching the NFL Network on your computer or other streaming device:
