Another exciting NFL season ended on January , and now we have the NFL playoffs to look forward to Starting on January 7 when the Oakland raiders take on the Houston Texans. If you want to find out how to stream this NFL playoff game, or any other game, keep reading and I will show you how.

The NFL playoffs broadcasters: Don’t miss any action

Just like every other year, the NFL playoff games are going to be broadcast nationally in the USA. For those in the USA, and many of our friends in Canada, this means that they are going to already have access to many games on their TV.

In the USA, here is how it breaks down by division:

  • NFC games: All NFC playoff games will be covered by ABC, ESPN, and FOX. The NFC wild card game will be covered by ESPN and ABC. Fox will be covering all other playoff games, including the NFC championship game.
  • AFC games: NBC and CBS will be covering games in an alternating fashion. Fox is the exclusive broadcaster of the AFC championship game.
  • Superbowl LI: Fox is the only network which will be broadcasting the Super Bowl On February 5 2017, live from NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.

The options available to those in the USA or Canada with a TV subscription are comprehensive. All you need is a couch, your subscription, and you can watch every single moment of every single game. But what about the rest of us?

How to stream NFL playoffs on the Internet

When it comes to the Internet, Watch ESPN will be covering every single game. This makes it an obvious choice for anyone who wants to stream NFL playoff. It gives you live access to streams, and expert commentary on the exciting action happening on the gridiron.

The catch with Watch ESPN is that it requires you to sign in with a TV subscription. If you don’t know someone who has one you can try Sling TV as another option. They have an app available for Android and Mac devices, and give you access to not just the NFL football playoffs, but many other channels. They have a free one week tnfl-footballrial, and it is just $25 dollars per month after that. This week they are showing:

  • AFC wild card game, Oakland vs Houston
  • NFC wild card game, Detroit vs Seattle
  • NFC wild card game, New York vs Green Bay

Check out their schedule to see what they are showing each week. They will be streaming nearly every single NFL playoff game.

Stream NFL playoffs from abroad live

Okay, see you did not know someone that already has a subscription package, and you don’t want to pay for a Sling TV. What are you going to do? You’re going to have to figure out a way to bypass the Geos restrictions placed on those outside of the USA. Here are the only three steps that you need to do:

  1. Download and install the client for one of the top five geo-unblocking tools which we review. There are options for everyone, including Mac, Windows, mobile devices, and even your home router.
  2. Open The client of the VPN provider which you have chosen. Choose to connect to a server in the USA.
  3. Go to the website of the broadcaster which is showing the game you want to view, and start streaming.

What you will see is the power of changing your IP address. These tools are able to make The broadcasters websites think that you are inside the USA, and allowed to watch their content. That is the issue that so many people abroad are facing, they are being discriminated against simply based on their IP address. Your IP address is what tells websites where you are in the world, if you change your IP address you change with these websites view of you.

Stream NFL playoffs and other live sports

The same principle that we looked at above can be used for anything. You can use it to unblock YouTube videos you can’t watch due to geo-restrictions, TV shows, or any other online broadcast that is on the Internet. 

My last question to you is who do you have in the Super Bowl? I think I have to go with Green Bay, they have really been rolling the last nine weeks. Here’s to a great 2017 NFL playoffs, and to look back on a great season:
