UPDATE 2017/2018: The Ravens games on broadcast networks NBC, FOX and ESPN are now available on DIRECTV NOW this year, no cable required. If you’re an AT&T Wireless customer you’ll save a ton of money as well. Sign up for their seven day free trial to see if it’s for you:
The Baltimore Ravens are arch rivals of the Pittsburgh Steelers even though the two teams are only physically separated by 5 hours along Interstate 70. The rivalry between the Steelers and Ravens is considered intense with fistfights breaking out at almost every game. Art Modell established the Ravens in 1996. The Ravens compete in the AFC North division with the Steelers, Browns and Bengals. All home games are played at the M&T Bank Stadium with its headquarters in Owing Mills. There are a couple of different free ways to stream the Baltimore Ravens online. Below we discuss a number of different streaming options for Ravens fans.
Stream the Ravens Live via Sling TV
Sling TV is one of the best ways to stream the Baltimore Ravens game online and for free. The basic subscription called ‘Sling Orange,’ gives you access to ESPN and ESPN 2 amongst other sports channels. It’s safe to say that you’ll be able to stream 90% of the Ravens game on both of these two channels. However, you can always upgrade to the ‘Sling Blue’ package if you want more sports like RedZone and NFL Network. It’s only $5 more for that and there’s a 7 Day free trial.
The Sling TV app for iOS and Android allow you to stream the Ravens anywhere and anytime they are playing.
Watch Ravens Games Live Without Cable with DIRECTV NOW
Ravens fans all want the same thing: an easy way to stream their favorite football team’s games online. DIRECTV Now’s service is a cable alternative that gives you ESPN, Fox News and of course you’ll be able to stream SNF, TNF and MNF when the Ravens play there as well. You get a 7 day free trial so you won’t need to take our word for it. Give it a try and stream the Ravens anywhere.
Steam the Baltimore Ravens Online via the Official Website
The first thing you need to wrap your head around when streaming an NFL game, in general, is that it airs on numerous channels. Which means that there is no one official home of the NFL. It’s possible to catch a Ravens game on ESPN and Fox Sports, but there are also games on NBC and CBS. Once you’ve determined the channel it’s airing from visit the official website of that channel, enter your subscription details and start live streaming. Channels like CBS and Fox have their own official mobile app which allows you to stream on the go, but again you’ll need to be a subscriber.
But if you’re a Ravens fan and not a subscriber to any sports channels and nobody will give you theirs then there are a couple of other ways to stream the games live.
Is the Ravens game on CBS? Watch it live with CBS All Access
CBS All Access now gives you access to NFL games in your region! Try it out this weekend while watching the Ravens game. This only works if it’s in your local area though, so just check local listings to see if CBS will be broadcasting your game. CBS All Access gives you 24/7 streaming of their network as well as a back catalog of shows as well.
Stream the Ravens via the PlayStation Vue
The PlayStation Vue is a lot like Sling TV in the sense that you can subscribe to viewing a bunch of channels directly on your mobile device as long as you’re hooked up to the internet. However, the Vue is a bit more expensive with the basic package starting at $40 a month but with it, you get access to ESPN 1&2 as well as Fox Sports 1&2. So, catching up on a live Ravens game is easier than ever before!
Any Other Ravens Game Streaming Options?
Not really. Netflix, Hulu, Amazon and other services in that vein do not carry sports, including the Ravens or NFL. Verizon has a free mobile app for its users that you should check out if you’re a subscriber.
This season you can watch the Ravens if they’re on Thursday Night Football using Amazon Prime. Check out their 30 Day free trial as well:
What About So-Called “Free” Streaming Websites?
We are aware of a few free streaming websites, but they are illegal to say the least. If you don’t like getting penalized for copyright infringement or getting tackled by the FBI in your underwear, we strongly advise against it. Kidding aside, you’ll probably get a virus from one of these live Ravens streaming websites as half of them contain malware (no, we mean literally half).
Support the Ravens by streaming their games in a legit way that helps pay for those sparkly cheerleader shoes.
