Don’t worry, there are plenty of legal options to watch Vikings football online without cable.
Minnesota Vikings 2018 TV Coverage
CBS, FOX, NBC, ESPN and NFL Network share the rights to Minnesota Vikings 2018 live streaming, but FOX covers 10 games out of 16, two on CBS, three on NBC, one on ESPN, two on NBC and one on NFL Network. To get those CBS games live, we recommend CBS All Access. To watch games on-demand after they air, NFL Game Pass is a good option.
Minnesota Vikings Streaming Options
In this guide, we cover several different options such as CBS All Access, fuboTV, Sling TV, DIRECTV NOW, NFL Game Pass, PlayStation Vue, Hulu with Live TV and NFL Sunday Ticket, and more. Not every service offers all the channels the Minnesota Vikings football games will be broadcast on so we try and help you get the information you need to make the best choice for your individualized viewing preferences.
CBS All Access
Available to most mobile devices, the CBS app offers live streaming of exactly what’s airing on the local CBS channel. In Minnesota, that’s WCCO. But no NFL games will stream on mobile phones — Verizon Wireless has that contract (see below). The Chiefs games, however, will still stream on compatible tablets, video game consoles, Roku players and other set-top boxes that are CBS-app friendly. Price: $5.99 a month.
FOX and CBS are included in the main “Fubo Premier” channel package, which is largely tailored towards sports fans. You can sign up for a free 7-day trial, and you can then watch the Minnesota Vikings 2018 live stream game on your computer via the FuboTV website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the FuboTV app.
With Sling TV, you can watch a lot of live NFL games throughout the entire NFL season. Sling TV is one of our favorite streaming services because of the channel options, flexibility to customize packages, and price. With packages starting at just $20 per month, this affordable service gives subscribers access to Minnesota Vikings 2018 live streaming.
Offers Fox, ABC and CBS to Minnesota subscribers (check your ZIP code), so local subscribers can watch the Sept. 16 game against the Green Bay Packers. The cheapest plan, which includes the three networks plus ESPN, is $35 a month. While it’s a slightly more expensive price point, it does have local channels live in more cities than Fubo or Sling, making it the better option for some people in smaller markets.
NFL Game Pass
For viewing games on mobile phones, Verizon Wireless still has the exclusive contract for these Thursday night games. This stream is only available to Verizon customers, so we didn’t include it above. Only one Vikings game is on a Thursday night, that’s the Sept. 27 against the Los Angeles Rams.
PlayStation Vue is Sony’s streaming service. In Minnesota, subscribers can get CBS, ABC, Fox and ESPN as part of the basic Access plan at $39.99 a month. This option is very similar to the Sling and DIRECTV NOW services. They have recently increased prices so we are hesitant about recommending this if you just want football. Check out our analysis of this live streaming service.
Hulu with Live TV
In Kansas, Hulu offers live streams of CBS, Fox and ESPN, and the company confirmed that all Vikings games that air on the local CBS and Fox networks can be watched by Vikings subscribers. While the live service is available on many devices, it’s not yet ready for the popular Roku’s. Hulu’s live service is $39.99.
NFL Sunday Ticket
If you can’t get DirecTV satellite service, you may qualify for an alternative satellite-free version of the Sunday Ticket service. This DirecTV streaming service is intended for customers that don’t have access to DirecTV satellite services (usually because of where they live, such as an apartment or dorm). If you fall into this category, you should qualify for the service, and you can get it as a standalone product, without the need for a cable or satellite TV subscription. You may also qualify if you’re a student, or if you live in NYC, Philadelphia, or San Francisco.
Minnesota Vikings live free online
Watch the Minnesota Vikings game live free online. For Chiefs fans living in the Minnesota area, you might be able to watch Minnesota Vikings games live without any subscription or service. If you’re within the local broadcasting area of the Vikings, you can enjoy most of their games live over-the-air, for free.

NFL Game Pass International offers live Minnesota Vikings streams anywhere in the World. If you live outside of the United States, you’re probably eligible for NFL Game Pass International.

In fact, you can catch every single regular season NFL game live (blackouts may apply) with the International package. Plus, Game Pass International offers on-demand viewing options and all of the other features of its domestic counterpart.
