Monday Night Football is a live weekly broadcast of the National Football League. It airs on ESPN in the United States. It used to air on ABC until 2005. However, in 2011, during the first day of the year’s regular season, the network (ESPN) extended the contract for eight more seasons which will now run till 2021. The new contract is valued at $14.2 billion and could go as high as $16 billion with ESPN having the right to expand highlights and international streaming rights. Wild Card playoff games may also be part of the broadcast. Also, as part of the rights agreement signed in 2011, ESPN has exclusive rights to the Pro Bowl starting from 2015 right up until 2022.

Stream Monday Night Football Live Without Cable

It’s possible to watch Monday Night Football live without cable but only if you can get ESPN without it. One way of being able to stream Monday Night Football is via ESPN’s own app but that only works if you are a subscriber to the channel. Alternatively, live streaming services like Sling TV, DIRECTV NOW and the PlayStation Vue also include ESPN as part of their lineup of channels. Interestingly, the basic package of all three services mentioned includes ESPN.

Sling TV costs around $20 a month and DIRECTV NOW starts at $35 with no long-term commitment required. You can use the links below to try the services out for free:

Watch Monday Night Football on ESPN

ESPN is by far the only channel which broadcasts Monday Night Live Football. Most cable service providers already have ESPN as part of their basic sports package. Some cable service providers in the US also provide streaming services which may allow people to stream via their apps for a select few devices. However, subscribers can also stream via ESPN’s own app as well.
