NBC is the exclusive broadcaster of this Thursday Night NFL kickoff opener. You can watch the Chiefs vs. Lions game live for free over the air using a digital antenna. If you have a cable or satellite package, it should include NBC. Just tune in at 8:20 p.m. ET (pre-game coverage starts about an hour prior).

If you don’t have cable or can’t access NBC over the air, Peacock (starts at $5.99 monthly) is where you want to be. It’ll stream this and all forthcoming Sunday Night Football games. For those watching abroad, this is the cheapest method to tune in, but you’ll need to use a VPN. (Keep scrolling for details on that.)

If you want a solid solution to watch as many NFL games as you can throughout the season, you’ll want to consider subscribing to a more comprehensive live TV streaming service.

Our guide to watching NFL games without cable has the full details on who’s showing what, but you can watch the Chiefs vs. Lions and most other games showing locally on Hulu + Live TV ($69.99) and Fubo TV ($74.99). Both are pretty costly but will get you nearly every local and primetime game outside of Thursday Night Football. 

Sling’s Orange + Blue plan is more affordable at $55 monthly (50% off your first month) and offers local games airing on NBC, Fox, and ESPN, but lacks CBS.
