The NFL playoffs start this weekend with a quartet of games. Only the Kansas City Chiefs and the New England Patriots were at the AFC in the first round and only the New Orleans Saints and the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC.
The rest of the teams that have qualified for the playoffs will start their way to the Super Bowl this weekend. There are two games on Saturday and two more on Sunday. So you can see the games if you have.

To watch wild card games, you need to find a streaming service that not only offers the top four networks, but also a live feed, not just on-demand content. In many markets, you can watch live content from your local networks on-demand, but does not.
The basic, $ 40-per-month Live One Little package from DirectTV Now includes the four major networks and ESPN. You can use the channel search tool to see if you receive local live feeds in your zip code.
Hulu with live TV
Hulu with live TV costs $ 40 a month and includes the four major networks and ESPN, but check out what live channels Hulu offers in your area.
The PlayStation Vue access plan for $ 45 per month includes the four major networks and the ESPN. On the PlayStation Vue Plans page, you can see if you can get a live feed at your place of residence.
YouTube TV costs $ 40 per month and includes the four major networks and the ESPN. Put your zip code on the Channel Lineup page to see which local networks are available where you live.
FuboTV is a sport-oriented streaming service that costs $ 40 in the first month before jumping up to $ 45 a month. I'm sorry, Colts and Texans fans, but FuboTV has nothing to do with Disney. It offers CBC, Fox and NBC, but not ABC or ESPN. See what's live in your area.
Bad News, Fans and Giant Fans – Sling TV does not offer CBS. The Blue Plan for $ 25 per month includes both NBC and Fox, the Orange Plan for $ 25 per month includes ESPN, and the Orange + Blue Plan for $ 40 per month includes all three options. However, you need to check if you can watch a local live feed in your area.
You can use ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC apps to stream games, but you must sign in with your pay-TV credentials. (Disclaimer: CNET is a division of CBS.)
If you're ready to watch on a phone or tablet and not transfer to your TV, you can use the NFL Mobile app to play any NFL playoff games, including Super Bowl LIII, live broadcast or the Yahoo Sports App for free.
Free Wireless TV
If you live in an area with good reception, you can look for free on over-the-air stations by choosing a cheap (under 30 €) indoor antenna for just about any TV to watch games to see in the big networks.
