While preseason games are already underway, the 2017 NFL season will officially begin September 7 when the New England Patriots play the Kansas City Chiefs. Fans of the gridiron game who don’t have cable should still be able to catch every game without resorting to hooking your TV up to a cable box, provided they do some research, and keep close track of their team’s schedule.

According to Techcrunch, it’s possible to enjoy all the football you want, though you’ll need a combination of live TV streaming plans, NFL-specific streaming services, and some free options from Yahoo.

For starters, you’ll need to pick your team and figure out whether it’s an in-market or out-of-market team (basically, whether or not you are in the same state as your team).

As for streaming TV, you’ll need to sign up for a Sling TV subscription. Sling offers two streaming packages. The Orange package, at $20, streams channels like ESPN, AMC, and CNN. The Blue package, at $25, grants you access to channels like FOX, NBC, and USA, so you can get as many games as possible. Signing up for both will cost $40 per month thanks to a $5 per month discount.

Regional markets may have different rules regarding what games are available for viewing, so be sure to check your favorite team’s schedule. Altogether, if you’re willing to put in the effort, streaming your favorite game ends up being a pretty inexpensive affair compared to the alternative of signing up for an actual cable or satellite TV plan.
