How to watch Ravens vs. Bengals without cable

If you don’t have a cable or satellite TV subscription, you can watch the Ravens-Bengals game on NBC with a live TV service, or on NBC’s Peacock streaming service. The good news for football fans is that NBC is available on each of the five major streaming services. The catch is that not every service carries every local network, so check each one using the links below to make sure it carries NBC in your area.

If you live in an area with good reception, you can watch the broadcast on NBC for free on over-the-air broadcast channels just by attaching an affordable (under $30) indoor antenna to nearly any TV.

Peacock offers three tiers: a limited free plan and two Premium plans. The ad-supported Premium plan costs $5 a month, and the ad-free Premium plan costs $10 a month. You need one of the Premium plans to watch the NBC broadcasts of NFL playoff games, which includes Chargers-Jaguars on Saturday night and Ravens-Bengals on Sunday night. Read our Peacock review.

All of the live TV streaming services above offer free trials, allow you to cancel anytime and require a solid internet connection. Looking for more information? Check out our live-TV streaming services guide.
