Ravens vs. 49ers Livestream: How to Watch NFL on Christmas Day Online

The final game of Week 16 will close out the holiday weekend with a bang. Monday Night Football falls on Christmas Day this year and in a possible Super Bowl preview, the Baltimore Ravens head to Santa Clara to take on the San Francisco 49ers. The two teams are tied for the best record in the NFL (11-3), each owns top playoff seed in the AFC and NFC respectively and they come into Christmas raging hot. The Ravens enter with a four-game win streak while the 49ers are riding a six-game tear. This game is the kind of present NFL fans look forward to all season.

Kickoff for tonight’s game is scheduled for 5:15 p.m. PT (8:15 p.m. ET) on ABC (and streaming on ESPN Plus). Here’s how you can watch or stream even if you don’t have cable.

Christmas Day’s Ravens-49ers game is on ABC, so your local ABC affiliate will carry the game. In addition to cable, satellite and an over-the-air antenna — which lets you watch ABC for free — you can also watch the game live using a streaming service. The least expensive such service is ESPN Plus, which is carrying the game live. Most live TV streaming services including YouTube TV and Hulu Plus Live TV also carry your local ABC station (see below), but they’re a lot more expensive.

You can also subscribe to NFL Plus, the NFL’s own streaming service at $7 per month, but streams are limited to just watching on a phone or tablet (not a TV).
