The cheapest streaming service that includes every channel that will have Redskins games is Hulu With Live TV. For more info about Hulu With Live TV and other live stream options, read on below.
Coming off a disappointing 2018 season, the Washington Redskins are looking to bounce back in 2019 despite playing in a potentially loaded NFC East.
Redskins games this year will be on either Fox (12 games–televised in select markets), CBS (3 games–televised in select markets) or ESPN (1 game–nationally televised), while one of the Fox games (Oct. 24 vs Minnesota) will also be on Amazon Prime.
If you don’t have cable, you can watch Redskins 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:
Redskins Channels Included: Fox, CBS, ESPN (Fox and CBS are available live in Washington, DC 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 Redskins 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 Redskins 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.
Redskins Channels Included: Fox, CBS (both available live in Washington, DC and other select markets), NFL Network, NFL RedZone (Sports Plus add-on)
Price: $54.99 per month; $10.99 per month for Sports Plus
ESPN isn’t included, but there’s just one Redskins 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 (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 Redskins 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, but it quickly gets more expensive if you want what some of the above streaming services offer, such as DVR ($5 per month) or NFL RedZone ($10 per month). Plus, CBS isn’t included, so there’s the extra hassle of needing to use a second streaming service for those games. But if you just want the Fox games (12 Redskins games will be on Fox), “Sling Blue” is a good, cheap option for that.
You can sign up for Sling TV right here, and you can then watch Redskins games 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.

Redskins 2019 Season Preview
After losing Alex Smith last season, the Redskins stumbled to a 7-9 record losing five of their last six games. Case Keenum was brought in to help patch up the offense this offseason – at least until rookie Dwayne Haskins is deemed ready to take over. That said, the Redskins don’t offer Keenum much support as they boasted one of the league’s worst offensive lines last season and look to be exceptionally thin at wide receiver. The streaky Jordan Reed is back at tight end but outside of that, none of their starting receivers totaled over 300 yards last season. The passing attack is undoubtedly going to be a weak area for the Redskins throughout the season and they’ll likely need to lean heavily on the running game to consistently move the football.
The Redskins do get back exciting young running back Darius Guice from an ACL injury last season. Guice should be in line to see the lion’s share of touches in the backfield over Adrian Peterson and should he stay healthy, Guice has a good chance to be one of this season’s breakout stars. Adrian Peterson should still be slightly effective in limited reps, though he is far from the MVP force that he was in his prime. Assuming the offensive line can give them even the slightest daylight, the Redskins should actually have a fairly decent ground attack.
The biggest splash of the offseason for the Redskins comes in the form of former New York Giant and free-agent safety, Landon Collins. Collins brings a steady veteran, playmaking presence to the secondary of a defense that struggled mightily last season. Up front, the defensive line looks to be loaded with exciting young talent – headlined by former Alabama tackle Da’Ron Payne. While they may lack experience, they aren’t short on talent and have the chance to be one of the breakout units of 2019.
The Redskins are far from “win now” mode with Smith on the shelf, Haskins not ready to start, and gaping holes at the receiver and offensive line positions. However, the talent is in place on defense to build a solid contender in years to come. This year should serve as more of a building block for future success with a number of young players in line to get some valuable experience. Haskins is certainly the quarterback of the future for the Redskins but they should at least fare better than they did to close out their disappointing 2018 season.
