UPDATE 2017/2018: The Cardinals 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 Arizona Cardinals joined the NFL in 1920, with the Chicago Bears making it one of the new NFL charter members who have been a part of it since its founding. The Cardinals are referred to as the “Big Red”. Most people may not know why but it is so that they are not confused with MLB’s St. Louis Cardinals. Since 2006 all home games are played at the newly built and very overpriced University of Phoenix Stadium, with the team’s training facility in Tempe. They’re in the NFC West with the Niners, LA Rams and the markedly better Seattle Seahawks.
If you’re a big, longtime fan of the Arizona Cardinals here is how to stream them online and live.
Live Stream the Arizona Cardinals Online with Sling TV
Sling TV is by far the best way to stream the Arizona Cardinals online and live. Think of Sling TV as the online equivalent of your cable service provider. Millennials who do not want to have a television hogging their gaming area, and putting up with baby brothers switching to the Baby Channel can signup for Sling TV. Once you become a Sling TV subscriber, you can download their app for your iOS or Android device and start streaming dozens of channels including the NFL Network, Fox Sports, and ESPN. All these channels have you covered for almost every Cardinals’ game.

Watch the Arizona Cardinals via the Official Cardinals Website
The Arizona Cardinals website is a great place for viewing a lot of content on the team. Though full, live games aren’t available here it’s great for highlights and other information about the team including their schedule. We especially appreciate the ‘Cheerleaders’ section. That said all the content on the website is free but not live. So, the videos in the ‘Watch Games’ section are a day old at the very least but what do you expect for free?
The NFL Game Pass has Cardinals Games
If anything the NFL Game Pass may make sense to Cardinals fans because it’s not live, as a matter of fact, you can start streaming a pre-recorded game thirty minutes after it’s over. It’s a great way to hide the shame of rooting for the Cardinals perhaps. Only kidding, of course but the point is non-live Cardinals games are on NFL Game Pass, though they aren’t live.
Other Ways of Streaming the Arizona Cardinals
Are the Cards on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon? Nope. No live sporting events exist on those platforms you probably already pay for. They are on Playstation Vue if you’re familiar with that Sling-like service where you can get the games without cable for a smaller monthly fee. Verizon also has a package for subscribers where you can watch special games like Monday Night Football on their mobile app. That’s free if you’re a Verizon customer and like watching the games on your phone.
Amazon does have an interesting series on the Cardinals from training camp. It’s free if you’re a Prime subscriber but you can also sign up for a free trial just to watch it if you want. Similar to Hard Knocks, you’ll get some behind the scenes moments you won’t find anywhere else. They also have 10 Thursday night games this year you can stream live if the Cardinals are playing!
Illegal Options for Streaming the Arizonia Cardinals (Not Recommended)
You should be very careful with so called free streaming websites and ones that push you to click ads in a bid to stream the Cardinals game. Most of these sites are run by Chinese and Russian hackers which means they could get away with stealing your piggybank if you don’t watch out. Plus, it’s illegal which is why we are strictly against piracy in all forms. Support the team you love by subscribing to one of the options above.
