Reddit NFL Streams: Where to Watch Week 4 Games After Reddit Banned r/nflstreams (2024)

Inevitably, the NFL has hit their first coronavirus roadblock. After players on the Titans and Patriots tested positive for COVID-19, both of their week 4 games have been postponed.

This is especially disappointing because the Chiefs-Patriots game was all set to be the most thrilling matchup of the week before Pats QB Cam Newton tested positive yesterday.

However, week 4 still offers some excitement. The Vikings and Texans-both winless thus far-will hope to turn their seasons around, the Eagles have the chance to take advantage of the 49ers’ injures on SNF, and the Falcons look to upset Green Bay on Monday night.

Almost every game this week will be broadcasted on CBS or Fox, except the SNF game which will be on NBC and MNF which will be on ESPN.

However, if you don’t have cable, you might be concerned about missing the action now that Reddit banned r/nflstreams. Read on to find to why Reddit NFL streams was banned and what the best alternatives are.

Why Was Reddit NFL Streams Banned?

The r/nflstreams subreddit was one of the most valuable resources for NFL fans around the world. Links, which were reliable for the most part, were posted for every single NFL game.

Fans were also spoiled for choice, considering they could watch NFL Redzone and NFL Network. And the best part about all of this was that the streams were completely free. No payment, no account, just a link with a couple of pop-ups here and there.

However, the free ride came to an end when Reddit banned the page. So, why did Reddit ban one of their most popular pages?

The short answer to this question is that the subreddit was technically illegal. If you watch other sports, you probably weren’t too surprised to see Reddit make this decision. Recently, the page for NBA and Soccer streams were also taken down.

The basic problem is that posting free links is a clear case of copyright infringement and leagues were starting to take notice. Interestingly though, Reddit was never forced to ban the subreddit, but rather chose to do so according to their own repeat infringement policy.

The policy reads:

Our policy is to close the accounts of users, in appropriate circ*mstances, who have repeatedly been charged with copyright infringement. Sometimes a repeat infringement problem is limited to one user and we close just that user’s account. Other times, the problem pervades a whole subreddit community and we close the subreddit.

What is the Best Way to Stream NFL Games For Free Now?

Of course, there are very few truly free ways to watch the NFL for free. One of the best way is with the Yahoo! Sports App. Users can livestream games for free on their phones or tablets.

This includes MNF and TNF games too. However, fans can only watch games which are broadcast in their local TV market. The official NFL app also works in a similar way.

Keep in mind, these are option for streaming local games, and are not available for fans outside of the United States.
