The cheapest streaming service that includes every channel that will have a Falcons game is Hulu With Live TV. For more info about Hulu With Live TV and other live stream options, read on below.
The Atlanta Falcons’ defense struggled en route to a disappointing 7-9 season last year, but the offense remains explosive and there’s plenty of reason to expect a bounce-back 2019 campaign.
Falcons games this year will be on either Fox (12 games–televised in select markets), CBS (2 games–televised in select markets) or NBC (2 games–nationally televised).
If you don’t have cable, you can watch Falcons games live on your computer, phone, Roku, Fire TV Stick, Xbox One, PS4 or other streaming device via one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services:
Falcons Channels Included: Fox, CBS, NBC (all available live in Atlanta and other select markets)
Price: $44.99 per month
Not only is this the cheapest streaming service that includes every channel that will have a Falcons game this season, but Hulu With Live TV also comes with Hulu’s extensive Netflix-like on-demand library of TV shows and movies.
You can sign up for Hulu with Live TV right here, and you can then watch Falcons games live on your computer via the Hulu website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Echo Show, or other streaming device via the Hulu app.
If you can’t watch a game live, Hulu With Live TV comes with 50 hours of cloud DVR space, as well as the option to upgrade to “Enhanced Cloud DVR,” which gives you 200 hours of space and the ability to fast-forward through commercials.
Falcons Channels Included: Fox, CBS, NBC (all available live in Atlanta and other select markets), NFL Network, NFL RedZone (Sports Plus add-on)
Price: $54.99 per month; $10.99 per month for Sports Plus
This is slightly more expensive than Hulu With Live TV, but FuboTV is a fantastic option. It comes with 100-plus channels in the main bundle, it includes NFL Network and NFL RedZone (Sports Plus add-on), it has some Fox games in 4K and it’s largely tailored towards sports.
You can start a free seven-day trial of FuboTV right here, and you can then watch Falcons games live on your computer via the FuboTV website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, or other supported device via the FuboTV app.
If you can’t watch live, FuboTV comes included with 30 hours of cloud DVR space, as well as a 72-hour look-back feature, which will allow you to watch games on-demand within three days of their conclusion, even if you don’t record them.
In-Market & Nationally Televised Games: Sling TV & CBS All Access
Price: $40 per month for Sling Blue + Orange ($25 per month for either bundle separately); $5.99 per month for Prime’s CBS Channel or CBS All-Access
This option is $46 per month all together, so it’s essentially the same price as Hulu With Live TV, but it becomes more expensive if you want to add DVR ($5 per month extra), it lacks the entertainment value of Hulu’s on-demand library and there’s the extra hassle of needing to use two different streaming services, as Sling TV doesn’t include CBS.
You can sign up for Sling TV right here, and you can then watch Falcons games that are on Fox, NBC or ESPN live on your computer via the Sling TV website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Xbox One or other streaming device via the Sling TV app.
For the CBS games, you can watch through either Amazon Prime’s CBS Channel or CBS All-Access:
If you have Amazon Prime or want to start a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime, you can watch all live and on-demand CBS content via the CBS All-Access Amazon Channel, which costs $5.99 per month and comes with a 7-day free trial.
Once you’re signed up for both Amazon Prime and the CBS channel, you can then watch a live stream of the CBS games on your computer via the Amazon website, or you can watch on your phone (Android and iPhone compatible), tablet, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 or other streaming device via the Amazon Video app.
This is ultimately the same as the Amazon Prime option, only you’re watching through CBS’ digital platform rather than Amazon’s.
You can start a free 7-day trial right here, and then you can watch a live stream of the CBS games on your computer via the CBS website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone compatible), tablet, Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 or other streaming device via the CBS app.
SundayTicket.TV allows you to watch a live stream of games that are out of your market and aren’t nationally televised. The service isn’t widely available, though, as it’s available for people who live in residences that can’t get satellite (apartments, condos, etc.), as well as residents of San Francisco, Philadelphia and New York City. You can check here to see if you’re eligible.
Additionally, most college students can get this service via SundayTicket U.
Once signed up, you can watch games on your computer via the NFL Sunday Ticket website, or you can watch on your phone, tablet or other streaming device via the NFL Sunday Ticket app, which is free to download on many different devices.

Falcons 2019 Season Preview
After suffering the largest comeback loss in Super Bowl history to the New England Patriots, the Falcons dropped to 10-6 in 2017 and then all the way to 7-9 in 2018, their first losing campaign since 2014.
The offense continued to perform well, however, ranking sixth in the NFL in yards from scrimmage. They’ve finished in the top eight in yards from scrimmage in each of the last five seasons, the last four of which have come under head coach Dan Quinn.
Quarterback Matt Ryan finished in the top four in completions (422), passing touchdowns (35), and passing yards (4,924) while throwing just seven interceptions.
He participated in two preseason games in the lead-up to the 2019 season, going 19-of-28 for 192 yards.
“It felt good,” Ryan said of his preseason, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I feel like I’m in a good place heading into this season. My body feels great. I really feel like I got good work these past two weeks. I think it’s valuable this time of the year to get feeling good in the pocket and to get that pass rush around you to get comfortable with your eyes down the field. I thought I was able to accomplish that the last two weeks. I feel really good about where I’m at and with the health of our offense and where those guys are at.”
The Falcons surrendered the ninth-fewest yards from scrimmage in the NFL in 2017, ranking in the top 10 in the category for the first time since 1998, a season that resulted in a trip to the Super Bowl. But the defense took a major step back in 2018, giving up 6,226 yards from scrimmage; only four teams conceded more.
Quinn is adding defensive coordinator duties to his role this season following the dismissal of Marquand Manuel, who took over as DC before the 2017 campaign.
“I think what you’re seeing more now is some of the best defenses have very good versatility,” Quinn said in August, according to AtlantaFalcons.com. “It’s not just going to be one thing, it’s going to be a combination of things to get to the offense, because they’re doing a combination of things.”
He added: “Offenses have concepts that they like and they work them from different formations. Defenses have to have pressures and coverages that they like from different locations. You can have the same play run, offensively, from a different formation five, six, seven plays in a row. It could be different, different, different, but the concept could be the same. So, defensively, you want to have something that looks alike as a disguise but could play out differently.”
