Carries Fox in San Francisco (KTVU)

After a thorough dismantling of the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday in the Wild Card round, Jordan Love and the Green Bay Packers advanced to the NFL’s next stage of the postseason: The Divisional Round and a meeting with the NFC’s top-seeded San Francisco 49ers in Santa Clara. 

The 49ers had a bye in the opening round and enter this weekend’s game a heavy favorite in this contest and as Las Vegas’ favorite to win the Super Bowl. 

Kickoff for Saturday’s game is called for 8:15 p.m. ET (5:15 p.m. PT) on Fox. Here is how you can watch, stream and follow along.

How to watch Packers vs. 49ers in the US

Sling TV’s Blue plan includes NBC, Fox and the NFL Network, though it does not have CBS, ABC or ESPN. Enter your address here to see which local channels are available where you live. NFL RedZone is also available for an extra $11 a month.

Note that to get ABC and ESPN, you’ll need to switch to the similarly priced Orange plan (which drops Fox, NBC and NFL Network) or go for the combined $60 a month Orange and Blue bundle that includes channels from both packages. With the combined plan, the Sports Extra add-on, which has RedZone, is an extra $15 a month. 

One important caveat: In our experience, Fox local affiliates will only be available if your billing address is in one of the 18 metropolitan areas covered in Sling’s agreement. If you’re outside of one of these areas, you’re probably better off going with one of the alternate services listed below. 

Numerous other live TV streaming services carry local Fox stations as well, namely YouTube TV, Hulu Plus Live TV, DirecTV Stream and Fubo. They all cost far more than Sling, but they also carry a full complement of live channels, including football broadcasting channels like CBS and ESPN.

An over-the-air antenna connected to your TV provides another option for Fox. The best part about antennas is that there are no streaming or monthly fees required, although you will need to make sure you have good reception.
