The storied franchise that is the San Francisco 49ers is back in action tonight in an exciting preseason matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers. The game will air on NFL Network and is also available for streaming through services like FuboTV, Hulu Live TV, Sling TV, Paramount Plus, and YouTube TV. If you want to watch the game without paying for a full cable subscription, you can also get NFL Game Pass, which replays every regular-season and playoff game in the league for just $99 per season.
With a win, the 49ers will move within one game of clinching the NFC’s No. 1 seed and a first-round bye. A loss would force them to play their backups for much of the final two games of the season and could make it harder to clinch a top-four spot in the conference.
The team’s other big game of the season comes in Week 16 when the 49ers host the 11-3 Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football. This is a key game for both teams as the Niners can get closer to the top seed and the Ravens can increase their lead in the AFC North.
For those outside the Bay Area, the best way to watch a 49ers game is with NFL Sunday Ticket. This package is only available to Bay Area cable subscribers and includes all FOX games. It is the only way to guarantee you will see a 49ers game live outside the Bay Area this season.
