UPDATE 2017/2018: The Hawks 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:
In the poetic words of one, Russel Wilson: Go Hawks! Maybe you’re a life-long twelve or maybe you’re a fan of another team who’s just a little bit curious about this eclectic team full of fun personalities. If you’re a Seahawks fan trying to watch the game online out of market you’re going to have a difficult getting a great HD stream onto the device of your choosing.
There are a few options for watching the Seattle Seahawks online but here are the most convenient streaming opportunities:
Live stream the Seahawks games on NFL Network, RedZone, ESPN, ABC and NBC with Sling TV
Sling TV and the NFL have a great partnership that started this season where Sling offers full legal streams of the games through their streaming service. You can get a free trial of the service that lasts for up to a week, giving you access to NFL Network and RedZone, as well as 20+ other television channels including ESPN, AMC, and more. Definitely the best option for cord cutters looking to watch football online this season.
Watch the Seahawks Live Without Cable using DIRECTV NOW
It’s getting more and more complicated to stream Seahawks games without cable these days. Similar to Sling, DIRECTV Now’s service has all the channels you’re looking for. ESPN, HGTV, Lifetime and of course you’ll be able to stream Sunday Night Football and Monday Night Football online whenever the Seahawks play. You get a 7 day free trial so you have nothing to lose except a great opportunity to watch the Hawks game without cable.
Are Seahawks Games Available on Netflix, Hulu, Google or Amazon?
The short answer is: No. NFL games are not available on Netflix, Hulu or any other major streaming service that you might already be subscribed to. See below for other options but you’re probably not going to get access to streaming Seahawks games in HD with a simple Netflix subscription. A man (or woman) can dream, though!
Amazon does actually have some Thursday games this season so if the Hawks are on that schedule Prime members will get to stream those for free!
Purchase an NFL Sunday Ticket Subscription
Okay, this isn’t a “free” option but it will certainly get the job done. For about $60 per month you’ll get access to every Seahawks game, every Marshawn Lynch play all season long. You’ll have to go through Direct TV but perhaps that doesn’t bother you. We know some cord cutting Seahawks fans won’t stoop to this but we wanted to let you know about this option because it is all inclusive and, of course, maybe money means nothing to you!
Verizon Customers Can use the NFL Mobile App
Are you a Verizon customer? Simply download the NFL Mobile app and start streaming several NFL games (including the Seahawks) whenever and wherever you want. The catch, of course is that you have to be a Verizon customer but maybe making the switch is worth it to you. This is a great option if you’re already a Seahawks fan with a Verizon phone. Check your apps to see if it’s already pre-installed or grab it here.

The worst part is: many of them don’t even work! Of course, there are always going to be some sites that make it under the radar and offer a less than stellar streaming option for the Seattle Seahawks next big game but you’re watching at your own peril. We don’t recommend this option but you’ve got to do what you must to support the Seahawks. If you choose to watch the Hawks game online like this make sure your anti-virus software is up to date.
