Watching Buffalo Bills Games

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 Buffalo Bills 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.

If you are looking to stream NFL games online, you will need NFL Gamepass (free trial) and a VPN.

Removing NFL Blackout Restrictions

Removing Blackout Restrictions

If the NFL attempts to blackout streaming of Buffalo Bills 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.
