How to Watch ‘Detroit Lions’ Without Cable in 2020: Schedule, Channels, Live Stream

By Gabriela Vatu / October 2, 2020

The Detroit Lions are back on the field for a brand new season in the NFL. We plan on watching the Detroit Lions online, so let's see exactly how we can do that.

The Detroit Lions is a team established back in 1930, so it's one of the oldest teams currently in the NFL. They are part of the National Football Conference, the North Division, and they play their home games at the Ford Field Stadium in Detroit. They managed to become League champions four times before the merger between the NFL and the AFL, but haven't really won a Super Bowl thus far.

The NFL season started on September 10th, and we're going to watch the games through to January 3rd. The Playoffs continue and culminate with the Pro Bowl on January 31st and the Super Bowl on February 7th.

We're going to take a look at when the Detroit Lions are playing, how to watch the game, and how to follow the game from other countries as well.

What Channels Can You Watch the Detroit Lions on?

The Detroit Lions games are going to be broadcast by several channels, including Fox and CBS.

How Can I Watch the Detroit Lions Online?

If you are hoping to watch the Detroit Lions online, you're going to have a fairly easy job because live TV platforms and streaming services will help you watch both channels. One of our favorite platforms to enjoy sport on is fuboTV, which has a single bundle of networks with about 100 channels, including CBS and Fox.

You will find out the main bundle is part of several plans that include extra channel packs and premium networks at lower prices, which may very well be a great starting point for you. You can add extra channel packs and premium networks to your subscription anytime you want.

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

While it's true that fuboTV is a great service, there are other options you have in the form of other live TV platforms that carry the networks.

Hulu is a great alternative to fuboTV because it features both CBS and Fox. The channels are up in a single bundle, and you can always add extra channel packs and premium networks if you so desire. Sling TV is also a service that you should consider. It features Fox in two of its bundles, namely Blue and Orange + Blue. CBS is not part of the deal here, though.

CBS and Fox broadcast in select markets only. If you live in an area where you do not get coverage, use a VPN to connect to the server from that area. This will allow you to watch the channels in that specific location, including the games. You can find out more details by clicking here.

How Can I Watch the Detroit Lions in Canada?

If you're a fan of the Detroit Lions and you live over in Canada, you can still keep up with all the NFL games they have. All you're going to need to have is an NFL Game Pass that you can get with the help of DAZN. You'll simply have to pay your subscription, and you're good to go.

How Can I Watch the Detroit Lions in the United Kingdom?

If you are a fan of the Detroit Lions from the United Kingdom, you can keep up with the games locally as well. BBC and Channel 5 offer weekly coverage for the season, while it's the Sky Sports NFL channel that has everything you need. You get to watch Monday Night Football, Thursday Night Football, Sunday Night Football, Sunday Afternoon games, the Playoffs, the Pro Bowl, and Super Bowl, all in one place.

In the United Kingdom, you can also get an NFL Game Pass that will allow you to watch games both live and on-demand 143.99 GBP per year.

How Can I Watch the Detroit Lions With an NFL Game Pass?

We know that the NFL Game Pass sounds fabulous, but it's not going to be the right solution for you in the United States if you want to watch the games live. Since there are so many networks that cover the live Detroit Lions games over in the United States, the NFL Game Pass will only offer on-demand coverage, and the game is becoming available when the broadcast ends on the regular TV.

The subscription costs $99.99 year or $29.99 for three months. It has apps for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, Apple TV, Fire TV, gaming consoles, and more.

How Can I Watch the Detroit Lions From Anywhere?

Traveling is pretty great, but you will quickly discover just how annoying geo-blockades can be when you have a subscription with a live TV service or streaming platform. You see, live TV services and streaming platforms like the ones we've been discussing can't be accessed from abroad unless you have a VPN.

VPNs will come in handy, as they can route your internet connection through a chosen foreign server and assign a new IP address to your device so that you appear to be elsewhere. We recommend you use ExpressVPN, as it's a great tool, with thousands of servers all over the world and some great privacy features that will help keep you protected.

You need to subscribe to ExpressVPN (49% OFF), get the apps for your device, and find a server that is in the United States so you can connect it. Once the connection is established, you can go ahead and load fuboTV to start watching the Detroit Lions online.

ExpressVPN has a 30-day money-back guarantee policy, so if you have any problems, it's a good idea to keep in mind that you can ask for a refund.
