The Buffalo Bills is certainly a flashy name for a football team but being based in Niagara Falls, almost everything has to be half Canadian. The Bills started playing competitively back in the 1960s as a charter member of the American Football League which was led by the head coach Buster Ramsey who then joined the NFL as part of the charter merger in 1970. Today, the Bills don’t have a stellar winning record, but they do manage to put on an entertaining show especially against their main rivals the Miami Dolphins which was also incidentally mentioned in the 1979 Steve Martin movie “How to Meet a Girl.” Interestingly, the Dolphins have managed to pull out 18 straight game wins over the Bills, so it’s not much of a rivalry except if you use your common sense and bet against them (Buffalo Bills). The Patriots and Jets join the Bills in the AFC East.
Watch the Buffalo Bills Using the Official Bills Team Website
We very much are a fan of the Buffalo Bills official team website. If anything it’s easy to navigate, colorful and has truckloads of team information. It’s a must visit for any fan who wants to find out what’s going on and where the team will be playing next. There are also player updates if there is a change to the roster, an injured quarterback making a return or even if it’s a new cheerleader. However, what the website does not offer is an app as well as live streaming options. The best you can get is highlights from last night’s game or probably if they played last week. So, if want to live stream the Bills online, we suggest a few other options.
Live Stream Buffalo Bills Online with Sling TV
Sling TV is one of the best live streaming options for people who want to stream on their smartphones and tablets on the go. It goes without saying that television as we know it is dated and services like Sling TV are the future. Having said that when you signup for Sling TV you get access to a number of channels including ESPN 1&2, the NFL Network and Fox Sports. By access, we mean that you can live stream these channels via the Sling TV app or your laptop’s browser similar to how its done on your television. Sling TV’s subscription starts at $20 a month, but we’d recommend that you upgrade to a decent package to make sure you’re getting the NFL Network if you’re a huge Bills fan.
If the Bills game is on CBS, try CBS all Access Free
Check local listings and if the Buffalo Bills game is on CBS, you can stream the Bills online through the CBS All Access website. While it won’t work on mobile (yet, but probably soon), if you’re looking to watch the game online for cheap, this is a great option. CBS All Access costs $6 a month and can be cancelled at anytime.
Watch Bills Games Live Without Cable with DirecTV NOW
Like Sling’s offering above, DirecTV Now’s service is an alternative to cable that gives you ESPN, Fox News, SEC Network and of course you’ll be able to stream the Buffalo Bills when they’re on almost any network. You get a 7 day free trial so give it the old Buffalo try. It’s only $35 after that so much less than the average cable subscription.
Other Ways of Streaming The Buffalo Bills
- The Verizon Wireless NFL Mobile app is exclusive to their subscribers and gets you the Bills games live from your phone if they’re in a special game.
- Playstation Vue is another great option similar to Sling only a bit more expensive.
- Go to the game and support the Bills! Hey, it’s not streaming but it gets the job done and lord knows there are Bills tickets available.
Don’t Steal from the Bills!
Well, there is one other legal way of live streaming the Buffalo Bills, and that’s by using the official ‘NFL Game Pass.’ The NFL Game Pass is only an option if you can wait to watch the game when it’s over. That said we think that paying $100 to watch a game that’s already over is a bit over priced because you know if the Bills have finally pulled out a win or just stuck to their traditional losing ways. Other than the NFL Game Pass there is no other legal way of live streaming the Bills legitimately!
If you turn to the dark side and decide to find a live stream from an unscrupulous source then don’t say we didn’t warn you about the viruses and illegality of them.
