Not going to be home to watch the NFL playoffs? Both NBC and CBS have good news as each network will be streaming their NFL playoff broadcasts for free.

NBC recently announced that they will be live-streaming both of their Wild Card matchups on Saturday (Kansas City Chiefs vs. Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints vs. Philadelphia Eagles) while CBS announced they will stream all four of their scheduled playoff broadcasts, including the AFC Championship.

CBS will begin their streaming coverage on Sunday with the San Diego Chargers vs. Cincinnati Bengals broadcast and will stream both of their Divisional Round games next week as well, before concluding with the AFC Championship.

It marks the first time CBS has live streamed an NFL playoff game while NBC continues the tradition for a third straight year, with their first broadcast stream scheduled for Saturday.

Fox meanwhile, will not be streaming their games live (unless you have access through your cable provider) but they will stream the Super Bowl for free come February 2nd.

Topics: CBS, Cincinnati Bengals, Indianapolis Colts, Kansas City Chiefs, NBC, New Orleans Saints, NFL, Philadelphia Eagles, San Diego Chargers
