The cheapest streaming service that includes every channel that will have Saints games is Hulu With Live TV. For more info about Hulu With Live TV and other live stream options, read on below.
After yet another excruciating playoff defeat last year, the New Orleans Saints enter 2019 with all the pieces in place to make another run at the Super Bowl.
Saints games this year will be on either Fox (9 games–televised in select markets), CBS (3 games–televised in select markets), NBC (2 games–nationally televised) or ESPN (2 games–nationally televised).

ESPN isn’t included, but there’s just two Saints game on ESPN during the season, and otherwise FuboTV is a fantastic option. It comes with 100-plus channels in the main bundle, it includes NFL Network and NFL RedZone, it has some Fox games in 4K and it’s largely tailored towards sports.

YouTube TV also includes every channel that will have Saints games, but in order of preference I put it behind both Hulu With Live TV (YouTube TV is more expensive and doesn’t include the huge on-demand TV/movie library) and FuboTV (YouTube TV doesn’t have NFL Network or NFL RedZone).
You can sign up for YouTube TV right here, and you can then watch Saints games live on your computer via the YouTube website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet, Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, Xbox One or other compatible streaming device via the YouTube app.

Additionally, most college students can get this service via SundayTicket U.

Saints 2019 Season Preview
It would be tough to imagine a more painful way to end back-to-back playoff runs than the Saints have done it the last two years. 2017 ended when Stefon Diggs caught a miraculous last-second 61-yard touchdown to push the Vikings over the Saints in the divisional round, and in 2018, a wildly controversial pass interference no-call for the Los Angeles Rams very likely cost the Saints a trip to the Super Bowl.
The latter prompted a rule change from the NFL in the offseason, allowing for instant replay on pass interference calls or no-calls.
Most teams would find it difficult to come back after two season finales of that nature, but the Saints are once again in position for a Super Bowl run.
“No hangover here,” Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan said. “Nobody here feels stuff like that.”
The ageless Drew Brees is back after setting career-highs in completion percentage (74.4) and QB rating (115.7) in what was his 17th full season last year. He’s still easily one of the best quarterback in the league (No. 5 overall in Pro Football Focus’ Top 50 players for 2019), and he still has two favorite weapons in Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara, who are each top three players at their respective positions.
Other than that, the Saints’ most noticeable roster moves have mostly consisted of adding role players. Latavius Murray will take over the Mark Ingram role behind Kamara at RB, Jared Cook provides a significant upgrade at tight end over Ben Watson, and linebacker Kiko Alonso was acquired via trade just before the start of the season.
“For us, it was really an opportunity to add a good football player to the roster,” head coach Sean Payton said about Alonso. “I think it’d be premature to try to anticipate how it unfolds, but we feel like he’s someone that, we’ve played against him. He’s a tremendous effort player – you see it, feel it when he plays. We’ll be excited to welcome him here and then find the right role as the season progresses.”
As far as departures beyond Ingram, Pro Bowl center Max Unger retired and defensive end Alex Okafor left in free agency after recording four sacks a year ago. Not insignificant losses by any means, but certainly not enough to change the Saints’ outlook for 2019, which is essentially Super Bowl or bust.
The Saints’ 2019 over/under win total is set at 10.5, which is tied with the Rams for the top mark in the NFC and behind only the New England Patriots’ 11.
