The Seahawks and Cardinals have each had a rough start to their campaigns in 2022. Both NFC West teams are 2-3, one game behind the division Rams leads. On Sunday, Seattle and Arizona will try to gain some ground when they meet at Seattle’s Lumen Field for a division fight.
The game will be shown on Fox in the Arizona and Seattle areas (according to 506 Sports) on live TV streaming services, but there may be instances where you are blocked due to an internet location issue or just want an extra layer of privacy for streaming. There’s an option that doesn’t require you to subscribe to something like NFL Sunday Ticket or NFL Plus, or search the web for a sketchy website: you can use a virtual private network or VPN.

How to Play the Cardinals vs. Seahawks game online from anywhere using a VPN
If you find that you can’t watch the game locally due to incorrectly applied blackout restrictions, you may need another way to watch the game and that’s where using a VPN can come in handy. A VPN is also the best way to prevent your ISP from cutting your speeds on match day by encrypting your traffic, and it’s also a great idea for when you’re traveling and find yourself connected to a Wi-Fi network. network, and you want to add an extra layer of privacy for your devices and logins.
With a VPN you can virtually change your location on your phone, tablet or laptop to access the game. So if your ISP or mobile carrier has given you an IP address that incorrectly represents your location in a blackout zone, a VPN can fix that problem by giving you an IP address in your correct, non-blackout area. Most VPNs, like our Editors’ Choice, ExpressVPN, make it really easy to do this.
Using a VPN to watch or stream sports is legal in any country where VPNs are legal, including the US and Canada, as long as you have a legitimate subscription to the service you’re streaming. You need to make sure your VPN is set up correctly to prevent leaks: even if VPNs are legal, the streaming service could terminate the account of anyone it believes is circumventing properly applied blackout restrictions.

Live stream the Cardinals vs. Seahawks game in the US
The Cardinals vs. This week’s Seahawks game is on Fox, so in addition to a VPN set up in an area where the game will be played (see tips below), you’ll need a live TV streaming service with a local Fox affiliate broadcasting the game. The least expensive service is Sling TV Blue.
Of the live TV streaming services that carry local Fox stations, Sling TV Blue is the cheapest at $35 per month. Note that Sling is currently running a promotion where the first month of service is half price ($17.50) for new subscribers.
One important caveat: In our experience, local Fox affiliates are only available if your billing address is located in one of the 18 metropolitan areas covered by Sling’s agreement. If you’re outside of one of these areas, you’re probably better off using one of the alternative services below.
Numerous other live TV streaming services also have local Fox stations, namely YouTube TV, Hulu Plus Live TV, DirecTV Stream, and FuboTV. They all cost more than Sling TV, but they also have more channels, including football-specific channels like Fox, ESPN, NFL Network, and/or RedZone. Check out our guide to live TV streaming channels for more information.
Quick Tips for Streaming Cardinals vs. Seahawks with a VPN
Screenshot by Sarah Lord/CNET With four variables at play — your ISP, browser, video streaming provider, and VPN — experience and success can vary.
Sling Blue is only an option if and when the ability to get local Fox affiliates is active on your account. You may want to verify that your billing address qualifies for that option before committing your credit card. We successfully tested the game using a server in Phoenix, and you should be able to use the Phoenix or Seattle server in ExpressVPN to watch. If you don’t see your preferred location as the default ExpressVPN option, try the “search for city or country” option. If you’re having trouble getting the game after turning on your VPN and setting it to the correct display area, there are two things you can try for a quick fix. First, sign in to your streaming service subscription account and make sure that the address registered for the account is an address in the correct display area. If not, you may need to change the physical address registered to your account. Second, some smart TVs — like Roku — don’t have VPN apps that you can install directly on the device itself. Instead, you’ll need to install the VPN on your router or the mobile hotspot you’re using (such as your phone) so that every device on its Wi-Fi network now appears in the correct display location. All the VPN providers we have recommend having helpful instructions on their main site for quickly installing the VPN on your router. In some cases with smart TV services, after you install a cable network’s sports app, you’ll be prompted to verify a numeric code or click a link sent to your email address provided for your smart TV. is registered. This is where having a VPN on your router also helps, as both devices seem to be in the correct location. And remember that despite using a VPN, browsers can often reveal a location, so be sure to use a privacy-first browser to log in to your services. Normally we recommend Brave.
How we test VPN streaming for NFL games on Sunday
For each game, we use a combination of ExpressVPN and Paramount Plus (for CBS games) or Sling TV Blue (for Fox games). Using the maps on 506 Sports, we determine which servers are nearby and connect to one, then launch the streaming service and tune in to the local CBS or Fox affiliate. If the channel comes through, it is successful and we report the results above. We also screenshot the relevant program guide listing (see above) on the local CBS affiliate website or Sling TV.
