That's how good XFL week 1 was. We're already getting our XFL live stream details in order for week 2's action — which is starting now. Yes, pro wrestling magnate (and on-screen character) Vince McMahon's renegade football league is back and it's actually good

Yes, in a shocking twist worthy of Monday Night Raw, the XFL made its triumphant return last week, and made a hit on social media as the crew revealed how they learned their lessons. 

Not only was there high-quality gameplay, some innovations to the format (improved instant replay and a better kind of kickoff) led to a faster and more enjoyable game.

The public agreed, with tens of millions watching XFL in its first week, and positive reviews.

Now, through, the XFL is back for week 2 and we’re halfway in. First, the New York Guardians got blanked by the DC Defenders, losing 27 to 0. Then the Seattle Dragons beat the Tampa Bay Vipers 17 to 9. The games are all on major networks, so they should be easy enough to watch on traditional cable or satellite, but they'll also be readily streamable.

So, if you still have the football itch and want to see what all the fuss is about with XFL, read on for our look at this week's XFL games and how to live stream them from the device of your choice.

XFL start times: When are the week 2 games?

Today’s early game begins at 3 p.m. ET and it sees the Dallas Renegades taking on the Los Angeles Wildcats, and will air on ABC. The second game, at 6 p.m. ET on FS1, will see the St. Louis BattleHawks battling the Houston Roughnecks.

How do I use a VPN to live stream the XFL season opener?

If you’re traveling outside the country, but don’t want to miss the games, a virtual private network, or VPN, could be an ideal choice. With a VPN service, you can connect to your desired streaming service through a U.S. server, which will let you access any game as if you were at home.

We've evaluated many VPN services, and our top pick is ExpressVPN. It meets the VPN needs of the vast majority of users, offering outstanding compatibility with most devices and impressive connection speeds. It's also affordable at $12.95 per month. (Signing up for longer periods of six months or a year reduces the cost even more.)


Our favorite VPN service, ExpressVPN, really shines thanks to its safety, speed and simplicity-to-use. It's also compatible with loads of devices - from iOS and Android to Roku, Apple TV and PlayStations. You'll even get an extra 3 months free if you sign up for a year, or there's a 30-day money-back guarantee if you just want to give it a try.

How can I get XFL week 2 games to live stream without a cable or satellite subscription? 

Since the games all air on major networks, there will be no shortage of ways to watch them.

Even if you've cut the cord, you can always use one of the best TV antennas to pick up the signals over the air and watch them from the comfort of your home.

If you'd prefer to watch the games on a streaming service, however, there are plenty of ways.

Here's a rundown of how you can watch XFL's week 2 games from your favorite streaming service:
