Chiefs vs Bills live stream: Can you watch for free?

The divisional round of the NFL playoffs are this weekend, and the most widely anticipated game is the Kansas City Chiefs vs the Buffalo Bills. The two teams have met in the playoffs many times before, with their January 2022 meeting in particular being an all time classic. The Chiefs pulled together a fast, last-minute drive to send the game into overtime, then won it. Fans are eagerly anticipating another close one.

The Chiefs vs Bills playoff game starts in about an hour, at 6:30 p.m. ET, and will be broadcast on your local CBS channel. That gives you a few options for streaming the game online. We’ve picked our favorite option, as well as another, potentially free option that will help you watch the other playoff games this weekend.

This game is being broadcast on local CBS affiliates. Paramount+ has all the CBS content you could ask for, and that will include the live stream of the Chiefs vs Bills playoff game. Paramount+ usually costs $6 per month or $60 per year, but there is a free trial that will get you seven days of Paramount+ for free. Your regular, local CBS channel is usually only available in the Paramount+ with Showtime plan for $12 per month or $120 per year, but NFL games are special, and Paramount+ lets you stream them with the basic $6 plan.

Can you watch the Chiefs vs Bills live stream for free?

Yes, there are two ways to watch the Chiefs vs Bills live stream for free. The first is the Paramount+ free trial that we mentioned above. Another option is the Fubo free trial. Fubo is a complete cable replacement service, with over 100 channels available. That means you can use it to watch the other three NFL playoff games this weekend, which are streaming on ESPN/ABC, NBC and Fox. The only reason we don’t suggest it first is because it will cost you at least $80 per month after your free trial is over. But if all you care about are the NFL playoff games, Fubo is a good option.

We're so close to UFC 297 and the main card with Sean Strickland vs Dricus Du Plessis. Even better, the fight is taking place in Toronto, a first in five years. Multiple titles will be decided during the PPV event, including the middleweight gold title -- between Strickland and Du Plessis -- and the women's bantamweight title during the Raquel Pennington vs Mayra Bueno Silva fight. As you probably know already, this is a pay-per-view event which means no free streams, at least not here in the U.S. But because you'll want to see these fights live, it still makes sense to break down where you can do that.

The fight is coming up very soon, at 10:00 p.m. ET tonight. Here's how to stream it.
