How Can I Live Stream the Chicago Bears Games?

If you're hoping to follow the Chicago Bears online, you should know there are plenty of ways to do that. Live TV platforms can help you keep up with your favorite events and shows, including NFL games, by simply cutting the cord and switching to one of these services. One of our favorite services to watch TV on, especially Sports, is fuboTV. This one has a single bundle of networks where you find CBS, NBC, Fox, and ESPN.

The main bundle is part of several plans that come with extra channel packs and premium networks, as well as add-ons to expand the cloud DVR storage space capacity or the number of simultaneous streams. You can also customize the subscription yourself by adding your own favorite channel packs and premium networks.

fuboTV works on lots of devices, including iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, Apple TV, Android TV, Fire TV, Chromecast, Roku, and others.

Besides fuboTV, there are other live TV platforms that can help you watch the games online.

Sling TV is a great option that offers ESPN as part of the Orange and Orange + Blue bundles, and NBC and Fox as part of the Blue and Orange + Blue bundles. Unfortunately, CBS is not part of Sling TV. Hulu is also an option, and it features a single bundle of networks where you will find NBC, ESPN, Fox, and CBS. As a bonus, you also get access to Hulu On-Demand included with your Live TV subscription.

NBC, CBS, and Fox are broadcast in select markets. If you do not get coverage, use a VPN to connect to a server from a different city, and watch the networks in that location instead. You can learn more about working the VPNs by clicking here.

How Can I Watch the Chicago Bears in Canada?

If you are a fan, you can also follow the Chicago Bears from Canada. You can do this by getting an NFL Game Pass through DAZN, so you'll get to enjoy the games both live and on-demand whenever you feel like it.

How Can I Watch the Chicago Bears in the United Kingdom?

Fans of the Chicago Bears from the United Kingdom have the power to watch their games through a multitude of networks. BBC and Channel 5 offer weekly coverage, but the NFL Game Pass and the Sky Sports NFL channel are what are going to get you the coverage you need.

The Sky Sports NFL offers Monday Night Football, Thursday Night Football, Sunday Night Football, as well as Sunday Afternoon games. The NFL Game Pass also offers on-demand and live coverage for the entire NFL season, including the Bears games, for 143.99 GBP per month.

How to Watch the Chicago Bears With an NFL Game Pass?

Another way you can enjoy Chicago Bears is with the help of an NFL Game Pass. In the United States, however, due to the high number of channels that cover the tournament, you will not get the same perks from the NFL Game Pass as people from the United Kingdom, or Canada, or any other country in the world.

In fact, with the NFL Game Pass, you only be able to watch games on demand. The subscription costs $99.99 per year or $29.99 for three months. The NFL Game Pass has apps for pretty much any device you can think of, including smartphones and tablets running on iOS or Android, gaming consoles, smart TVs, and more.

How to Watch the Chicago Bears From Anywhere?

If you often travel across the world and find that you cannot watch the Chicago Bears when the games are on, you can still see them, but you need a little bit of extra help. Live TV platforms and streaming services from the United States are all geo-blocked, so they can't be accessed from abroad unless you have a VPN.

VPNs can route your internet connection through foreign servers and assign a new IP address to your device. Our recommendation is to use ExpressVPN, which is a really great tool that has thousands of servers all over the world, and some really great privacy features to help you out.

All you have to do is subscribe to ExpressVPN (49% OFF), get the apps for your device, and find a server in the United States that you can connect to. ExpressVPN has a 30-day money-back guarantee policy, so you can ask for a refund should there be any problems with your app.

Then, you can load fuboTV and start streaming the next Chicago Bears game. We should also remind you that you can use the same VPN to connect to a server from a different city to watch the local version of the channel you are interested in.
