The San Francisco 49ers have cruised to a 10-1 record and are establishing themselves as a legitimate Super Bowl contender. The Baltimore Ravens, at 9-2, can make the same claim. And these two teams collide today (Dec. 1) in a match-up you're not going to want to miss.
Thanks to streaming options, you don't have to. There are plenty of ways to watch the 49ers vs. Ravens game, even if it's not the one being broadcast in your area. Here's how to live stream today's matchup between San Francisco and Baltimore.
When can I watch the 49ers vs. Ravens game?
The San Francisco 49ers travel to Baltimore to take on the Ravens in a rematch of Super Bowl XLVII (and what fans of the two teams hope will be a preview of Super Bowl LIV in January). The 49ers vs. Ravens game kicks off at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT, and Fox will broadcast the game.
According to 506sports, most of the country will get the 49ers vs. Ravens game, though New York and the upper Midwest will see the New York Giants vs. Green Bay Packers instead. Smaller sections of the country will get the Eagles vs. Dolphins, Buccaneers vs. Titans and Rams vs. Cardinals in lieu of the 49ers vs. Ravens game.
In the UK, you can watch the game live on Sky Sports Action. If you don't subscribe to Sky Sports, a £9.99 Sky Sports day pass from Now TV lets you watch the sports channel for 24 hours.
How can I use a VPN to live stream the 49ers vs. Ravens game?
If you find yourself in another part of the world that doesn't have a live broadcast of the 49ers vs. Ravens game, you can always turn to a virtual private network, or VPN, to watch the live stream.

How can I watch the 49ers vs. Ravens live stream?
The NFL mobile app (Android, iOS) lets you stream local market games on your phone. You can also turn to NFL Sunday Ticket, which lets you watch almost any game. (With a month left in the NFL season, a Sunday Ticket subscription costs $58; an option for a package that includes the Red Zone channel raises the prices to $102.96.)
If you've cut cable out of your life, you can turn to a subscription streaming service, though make sure your service of choice includes your local Fox affiliate to ensure that you get the 49ers vs. Ravens live stream. (Not every service carries every local channel; Sling TV, for example, only offers network affiliates in select markets.) Here's a quick look at possible options for streaming services.
