How to Watch the Baltimore Ravens live stream on Cable TV
For fans that have not joined the cable cutter movement, their cable service provider is still an excellent choice to watch Ravens regular season games. The Ravens will play on primetime twice in the regular season. The Ravens have a week four showdown with division rival Pittsburgh on Sunday Night Football which will air on NBC. Their other primetime game will be a week two contest against Cincinnati exclusively on NFL Network.
The remainder of the Ravens’ regular season games will be aired on local CBS and FOX affiliates. 12 will air on CBS and two will air on FOX. Fans who will stick with their cable network provider can double check 506sports.com to determine if their local market will provide the Ravens game.
DirecTV NOW for Baltimore Ravens live online
The lowest plan for this online streaming service is the Live a Little plan at $40/month for 65+ channels. For the fans that do not want to be stuck in a long-term contract, this is an ideal package which offers flexibility at a low-cost. The Live a Little plan includes local CBS, FOX, and NBC networks. Ravens’ fans that live in local markets and are allowed to stream their local channels will have every game available except the week two contest since the NFL Network is not available on the Live a Little plan. An upgrade to the Just Right plan at $55/month will provide 85+ channels including NFL Network. A one week free trial is available for fans who wish to try out the service.
Sling TV to watch Baltimore Ravens live stream online
Sling TV is divided into two main packages for its subscribers. The sling orange and sling blue packages are each $25/month stand-alone packages. Sling orange and sling blue can be combined to form a bigger package for $40/month saving customers 20% on their package. For fans wishing to watch the Ravens live stream, Sling TV may not be the most suitable online streaming service. 12 of the Ravens’ regular season games will be broadcast on CBS local markets and Sling TV does not include CBS in its list of channels.
*Ravens’ fans who are subscribed to Sling TV can add a subscription to CBS All-Access for $6/month to watch their Ravens when their live stream is on CBS in select markets.*

Ravens’ fans who wish to subscribe to fuboTV will gain access to 86 live channels for $39.99/month. Channels include CBS, FOX, NBC, and NFL Network. ESPN is not provided with fuboTV, but Raven fans have no need to worry since the Ravens will not play on Monday Night Football this season. The same concept applies to fuboTV as with every online streaming service in that users should check beforehand to see if their local market will stream through online. A free one week trial is available for fuboTV before fans make the monthly commitment.

The Best Streaming Service for Ravens’ Fans?
The online streaming service best suited to watch the Ravens live stream is fuboTV. Since the Ravens do not play one game on ESPN’s Monday Night Football, the base package of $39.99/month provides all channels needed to watch them. As long as the subscriber lives in a Ravens local market available for live streaming, fuboTV provides the best value for price combined with channel availability.
DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket for Baltimore Ravens live streaming
For Ravens’ fans that unfortunately live outside of their team’s local market, DirecTV gives customers access to all out of market games during the regular season. Base prices for DirecTV start at $35/month with the Select Plan, but customers have to sign a two-year contract and expect price hikes. Fans can watch the Ravens play live every week, but NFL Sunday Ticket is an additional price of $293.94 for the 2018 NFL Season.
Baltimore Ravens live on Antenna
If fans live in a local Ravens broadcast area, then a simple OTA antenna can provide access to Raven games for free. Sure, the antenna will be able to pick up only local channels, but only one Ravens’ game will be off limits.
Baltimore Ravens live on NFL Game Pass
If watching the Ravens live is not an option, then NFL Game Pass allows fans access to watch a replay of every league game once it has finished airing. The service is $99 for the whole season and a free trial is available.
