NFL Popularity and Cord Cutting Trends

The NFL remains the most watched sport in the United States by a wide margin. The Cowboys consistently rank as one of the most popular teams, with an estimated 16 million fans nationwide according to Emory University.

In 2021, NFL games accounted for 75 of the 100 most-watched TV programs as millions of viewers tuned in every week.

However, paying for expensive cable packages has been declining in favor of streaming alternatives. It‘s estimated over 6 million US households cut the cord in 2021. Many are using live TV streaming instead for sports and entertainment.

Luckily for Cowboys fans, there are many ways to stream games without a cable subscription. Let‘s look at the best options.

Live TV Streaming Services

Live TV streaming services can replicate the experience of cable by providing live sports and on-demand programming over the internet.

While more costly than standalone options, they give you access to nationally televised NFL games on ESPN and local broadcasts on CBS, NBC and Fox.
