What’s The Best Way To Watch Chicago Bears Online?
The best way to watch Chicago Bears online is to use NFL Game Pass International. This is the only service that will let you watch every Chicago Bears game live online.
The US version of NFL Game Pass DOES NOT live stream any regular season games. But, with NFL Game Pass International, you can live stream Bears games from the preseason through the Super Bowl. You can watch on any device, both live and on-demand. You also get access to every other game around the NFL — and can even watch four games at once with NFL Red Zone, included with NFL Game Pass International. This is NFL streaming at its best.
The NFL doesn’t let US fans sign up for Game Pass International. Thankfully, there’s an easy way to get it anyway. See how to get NFL Game Pass International in the US.
NFL Game Pass is a bit pricier than other options though (around $150 for the season). If that’s too much for you, then we recommend fuboTV as the next best way to watch Chicago Bears online. FuboTV will give you access to most Bears live streams throughout the season. That’s because fuboTV will let you live stream all games on FOX, NBC, and CBS. Since the Bears are an NFC team, most of their games will be on FOX. (FOX has broadcast rights to all NFC teams.)
That said, you’ll probably also want a VPN to use with fuboTV. FOX — and thereby fuboTV — blocks access to games depending on where you’re located. With a VPN, you can bypass the geo-blocks and get access to every game, whether it’s in your local market or not.
We recommend NordVPN because it has the fastest streaming speeds and works on all devices. It also has one of the best deals out there — only $3.29/month (limited-time offer). Just follow these 3 steps to unblock NFL games on any site or streaming service:
1. Sign up for a 30-day trial of NordVPN (now for a limited time, get it for just $3/mo)
2. Download the app(s) for the device(s) you want to use
3. Connect to any US server and start watching.

How Can I Live Stream Bears Games From Outside Illinois?
If you’re not in the Illinois area, but want to watch Chicago Bears online, you’ll need a VPN. You can use a VPN (virtual private network) with any streaming service or website (Sling TV, fuboTV, CBS.com, etc) to get around location restrictions on games.
See, the networks that broadcast NFL games restrict access based on location. So Bears live streams are only available to people in the Illinois market. With a VPN, you can bypass these restrictions.
A VPN works by changing your digital location. So even though you’re outside the Bears local market, with a VPN you can appear to be located anywhere you want. By “tricking” websites and services into “thinking” you’re in Illinois, you can get access to watch Bears online from anywhere.
How Can I Watch Bears Online Without Cable?
To watch Chicago Bears online without cable, just use any of the streaming services in the table above. All these services are available without a cable or satellite TV subscription.
Most will let you live stream Bears games on any device. Many also have a DVR function so you can record games to watch them later. All services offer a free trial, so take advantage of this to check them out, and even watch Bears games online free for a while.
Where Can I Watch Today’s Chicago Bears Live Stream
For today’s Bears live stream, see the table above for the Chicago Bears TV schedule. This has the complete Bears schedule, and all the options to watch each game live online.
The table is also an easy way to see which service will let you watch the most Bears games online this year. You can sign up for a free trial of any service to watch today’s Bears live stream free.
Can I Watch Bears Online Free?
First, you can get a free trial of any/all of the streaming services in the table above. This will let you watch Bears online free for a week or more for each service.
You might be tempted to watch free Bears live steams from various websites that broadcast pirated streams. But after you try this once, you probably won’t be tempted again. You’ll have to play link chase, getting shuffled around to multiple sketchy sites. And you’ll have to deal with lots of ads, poor video quality, and streams that die in the middle of a game.
You might also try using Kodi to watch the day’s Bears live stream free. But as with piracy sites, the Chicago Bears live streams on Kodi are unreliable and will likely cause you more frustration than enjoyable football time.
A final option is to watch Bears free over-the-air. With a decent indoor antenna, you can watch Bears games free on FOX, CBS, NBC, and ABC. See the Bears TV schedule above to find the games you can watch free with an antenna. Then see how to choose the right TV antenna for you.
