The ability to stream NFL games on DIRECTV NOW is dependent on local channel availability for the market where you live. Secondly, you’ll need a connected TV device, tablet or computer in order to watch the game. Smartphones cannot be used to stream NFL games at this time and will result in a blackout error message.
Does this include games broadcast on CBS?

Yes. They can be streamed on connected TV devices, computers and tablets. (Smartphones excluded.)
