There’s nothing better than Football on Sunday morning. But if 10 hours of NFL action isn’t enough for you, never fear, there’s another few hours of football available on Monday night as well! Usually the NFL saves a rivalry or otherwise great matchup for MNF so you’re always going to see a meaningful game. It’s usually not the Jags or Browns. We’re talking Pats and Hawks on Monday nights!

Recently ESPN has been the home of Monday Night Football. The official NFL schedule for MNF shows all games this year presented on ESPN. This means that watching Monday Night Football online will be the same process as watching ESPN online. Here are your options for doing so.

WE RECOMMEND: Stream Monday Night Football Games with Hulu

One of the biggest names in streaming, Hulu has live streaming options that will give you access to ESPN, FOX, CBS, and NBC. That should cover all of the MNF games you’re looking to stream online. Their live streams are the highest definition we’ve seen yet. Here’s an exclusive free trial so you don’t have to pay a dime to stream tonight’s game:

Watch NFL Games on Hulu LIVE

Watch Monday Night Football Live Online with ESPN on Sling

Another great option is a bit of a larger commitment. Sling TV is a new alternative to Cable that allows you to subscribe to several channels for a mere $20, including MNF. If the games are on ABC as they are some years or a host of other channels you’re in luck because Sling gets you there too but usually they’re on ESPN. Sling gives you live television so you can watch online just like you would on a traditional television. Head over there now to check it out and sign up for the free seven day trial.

Use a VPN to Watch Monday Night Football and ESPN

If you’re concerned about security and privacy online then maybe a VPN would serve you well in your quest to watch Monday Night Football online. Here’s our choice for doing that cheaply and safely:


Streaming MNF with the Watch ESPN App

ESPN does have an app similar to HBO Go whereby you can login with your normal cable subscription credentials and watch Monday Night Football. This won’t appeal to those who have cut the cord but it is probably the best way to get a full HD stream of Monday Night Football anytime, anywhere. Stop reading now if you’re already a subscriber because downloading this app is the ultimate solution to streaming MNF.

It’s much cheaper at $35 and you can add HBO for $5 more. Better still, if you’re an AT&T customer on the Unlimited plan you get DIRECTV NOW for only $10 per month.

Is Monday Night Football on Netflix, Amazon or Hulu?

Live Sports are currently not supported on Netflix. Perhaps someday they’ll be part of those packages but they don’t even have past sporting events in their library yet. Monday Night Football is not on Netflix. But it is on Hulu!

Is There a Monday Night Football Live Stream?

The only legal way to live stream Monday Night Football online is to obtain a subscription through Comcast, Hulu Live or Sling. They each have apps that allow you to watch anything you’d like online, including Monday Night Football.

Avoid Pirating Monday Night Football Games Online

There are also several illegal options but we must warn you– NFL live streams are notoriously choppy and feature a cornucopia of malware and advertisements. A recent study showed that half of all live streams are malicious. If you’re comfortable with that risk and don’t mind buffering as Marshawn Lynch nears the end zone moments away from grabbing himself and jumping backwards then by all means, utilize one of these “HD” streams.  for this Seahawks fan, though, I’m going to need something a bit better.
