The NFL and Yahoo excitedly announced that the Bills game in London against the Jacksonville Jaguars will be the first to be streamed globally online for free via Yahoo. This news is great for the two conglomerates, but it has left many fans uncertain as to how and where they can watch this week's contest. Fret not. Here is the Bill's fan simple guide to watching Sunday's 9:30 a.m. EST kickoff.
Foremost, Bills fans in the Buffalo television market can watch the game on WIVB-TV, channel 4, as usual. However, only the Buffalo market can watch the game this way. All other markets, including Rochester, can watch via the Yahoo live stream.
Fans can watch the Yahoo stream on the web or on their mobile devices. On the web, fans only need to go to nflstream.yahoo.com.
On mobile devices including tablets and phones, the stream will be supported by the following apps:
- Yahoo Sports (recommended)
- Yahoo Fantasy Sports
- Yahoo Screen
Web browsers on mobile devices will also support the stream.
Additionally, any of the following devices can access the stream via the Yahoo app if connected to the web: Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, Roku, Samsung, TiVo, Vizio P-Series, XBOX 360, XBOX One.
Out-of-market Bills fans—including Rochester—can view the game via any of these methods for free on Sunday morning. For fans in Buffalo, the simplest way to watch the game is the usual one, by tuning to WIVB. The only difference this week is the early start time.
Fans can also listen to the game on the Bills Radio Network, which in Buffalo is flagship station WGR Sportsradio 550. The full list of stations associated with the Bills Radio Network is available here.
