Bills vs Chiefs channel, start time

The Bills vs Chiefs live stream is scheduled to start at 6:40 p.m. ET / 3:40 p.m. PT, today (Sunday, January 24).
It will be broadcast on CBS.

The Bills vs Chiefs live stream is on now and today's matchup is exactly the one we were hoping for. Yes, Kansas City fans won't be robbed of cheering on their quarterback Patrick Mahomes in the AFC Championship game. Last week, Mahomes told the press that he cleared the NFL’s concussion protocol, following a vicious hit he took last week in the team’s win over the Browns. 

With a healthy Mahomes playing against Bills’ quarterback Josh Allen, this NFL live stream could be a preview of a long-standing AFC Championship rivalry. Even the coaches have a history.

Bills’ head coach, Sean McDermott worked for Chiefs’ head coach, Andy Reid for 11 seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles. McDermott started as a scout and worked his way up to be Reid’s defensive coordinator where he served for two years before Reid fired him in 2011. 

Both coaches praised each other this week. Reid said McDermott deserves coach of the year honors, while McDermott returned the favor by calling Reid a “hall of fame coach.” A Chiefs win Sunday would mark Reid’s 17th playoff win, moving him into a tie with Washington’s Joe Gibbs for 4th place all-time. 

This game will be the second meeting between these two teams this season. The Chiefs took that week six match-up in K.C., 26-17. Chiefs running back, Clyde Edwards-Helaire ran for a season high 161-yards in the win. However, Edwards-Helaire has not played since suffering a hip and ankle injury on December 20th. The Chiefs’ leading rusher was a limited participant in practice this week.   

Oddsmakers currently have the (13-3) Bills as 3-point road underdogs to the (14-2) Chiefs. The Over/Under is 54.

Bills vs Chiefs live streams in the US

In America, Bills vs Chiefs is going to be broadcast on local CBS affiliates, which are included on most cable TV packages and available on one of our favorite streaming services: fuboTV. The game starts at 6:40 p.m. ET / 3:40 p.m. PT, on Sunday, January 24.

Sling TV, our other favorite live TV service, won't be enough to help, as its array of NFL game-hosting networks — FOX, ESPN, NBC and NFL Network — lacks CBS and NFL RedZone.

The more comprehensive package comes from fuboTV, as it has all five of the main channels you'll want: CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC and the NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

It's a case of "you get what you pay for" as Sling Orange & Blue (which you'd need to get ESPN, FOX, NBC and NFL Network) costs $45 per month, while the Fubo TV Standard package gives you all of the above, for $59.99 per month.
