How To Stream And Watch XFL Games Online

After failure in 2001, Vince McMahon is relaunching his pro football league, the XFL, for 2020. We now have less than a month to go until the kickoff of XFL 2.0, and it will be run in a completely different way from the 2001 version.

For this second attempt, Vince McMahon will operate this as a completely separate football league, unlike the previous time when it was just an offshoot of his main company, World Wrestling Entertainment. However, just like the original XFL, games will be watchable on both cable and network television, on channels which also show NFL and college football games. In addition, it will be available via some streaming services.

The new XFL begins with the first game on Saturday February 8th, which is a week after Super Bowl. It will finish on Sunday April 26th. When the season begins you’ll want to know how you can watch the games, so here’s how.

FOX Networks

The strategy of the XFL is to keep NFL fans watching FOX after the NFL season so that they might become interested in XFL. They will air one playoff telecast on April 18th and ten normal season games on FOX Sports, FS1 will get nine games and FS2 will get one, on March 14th. All of these will also be watchable on the FOX Sports GO application.

Combination of ESPN and ABC

Using this route, the XFL is attempting to get the Monday Night Football audience as well as the watchers of most of the college football games. ABC will get the most season games, fourteen to be exact, and ESPN will get 4 regular games, one playoff on April 19th, and also April 26th’s championship game. In addition to this, there will be two games, on March 1st and March 15th, shown on ESPN2. You can also pay $4.99 per month to be able to see the XFL on the ESPN+ app.


If you get the Orange+Blue deal on Sling, $45 per month will get you ESPN, ESPN2, FOX, FS1, FS2 and ABC.

YouTube TV

If you prefer your phone, tablet or computer for watching TV, then YouTube TV is highly recommended. $49.99 per month will get you all the channels mentioned above.


The basic package on Hulu won’t be enough to watch the XFL. That will require upgrading to their Hulu + Live TV deal, which costs $54.99. You also have the option of paying $12.99 for their Hulu, Disney+ and ESPN+ bundle, but with that you’ll miss out on the games shown on ESPN and ABC.


This costs $59.99 per month, but you’ll only get the games shown on FOX, FS1 and FS2.

AT&T Now, formally known as DirecTV Now

Their $80 a month Max Plan will enable you to watch all of the 2020 XFL season.
