Watching Dallas Cowboys Games (Online, Streaming & Over-the-Air)
Typically NFL games are not blacked out because they are on network television, which is free to anyone with an over-the-air antenna. However, if the Dallas Cowboys game is on ESPN, NFL Network or is blacked out for attendance reasons, you can still watch it, albeit with a little bit of work involved. You can stream The Dallas Cowboys Games football with a live TV streaming service. No cable or satellite TV subscription needed. Start watching with a free trial.
With a digital TV antenna you can watch your local broadcast channels – including FOX – for free once you’ve bought the antenna.
NFL Gamepass – NFL Gamepass allows you to stream any NFL game after the live game has ended. This will be your cheapest and easiest option, but obviously you won’t be able to watch the games live. There is a free trial available.
NFL Sunday Ticket – Sunday Ticket will allow you to stream live NFL games from any device, but the catch is that you can only watch out-of-market games. This means if you live in the market you are trying to watch the game for, you’ll need to mask your location with a VPN (see below).
Fubo TV – FuboTV is a streaming service that has a lot of local and NFL-related channels, but you need to check your address to see if they have the channels you need. There is a free trial available.

Removing Local Blackout Restrictions
Removing Blackout Restrictions
If the NFL attempts to blackout streaming of Dallas Cowboys games due to you being within the their home viewing area, use a VPN to get around it.
By using a VPN, or virtual private network, your home’s exact location is masked. Teams then cannot determine if you are within their blackout “range”, thus allowing you to watch whatever sports team you want.
Our favorite VPN service — and one of the most respected — is ExpressVPN. I personally use ExpressVPN, so I can vouch that they work for this exact use-case.
A VPN hides where you actually are on the internet. After purchasing their service, you get an IP address that is registered from some far-away place (think Germany, Italy or Seattle), and that IP is either entered into your home internet broadband router or via their downloaded “VPN app”. This IP address acts as a disguise to the various major sports teams that attempt to “blackout” their streaming services for those of us that can simply watch it on our TVs or computers.
Are VPNs Legal?
When used for watching TV and your local sports teams, VPNs are not illegal and anyone can use a VPN service to watch sports without fear of the police coming knocking at your door. The act of surfing the web or streaming shows through another IP is completely legal, and is something even the largest companies in the world do all the time. However, if you hide behind a VPN service to perform illegal activities, then you’re of course violating the law – and we would never condone that.
Local Dallas Cowboys Area
If FOX is part of your cable package, then your location may be subject to blackouts. This happens because the cable companies want you to pay for one of their packages which includes FOX. Here are a few locations that are within this team’s blackout area.
The Giants and Dallas will face off at 4:25 p.m. ET Sept. 8 at AT&T Stadium to kick off their 2019 seasons. Last year was nothing to brag about for the Giants (5-11), so the squad is looking forward to a new start. On the other hand, Dallas is coming off a 10-6 season with hopes of advancing further than the second round of the playoffs, where they were eliminated by the Rams 22-30.
Since the experts predict a loss, the Giants will need to dig deep. We’ll soon see whether they can make the experts look bad.
