The Niners have been kicked out of Levi’s Stadium for the next few weeks, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing considering their home record this season. Follow our guide below as we explain how to get a Bills vs 49ers live stream and watch NFL Monday night Football online wherever you are in the world right now – including for free in some countries!
The Niners are 1-4 in Santa Clara, so the temporary switch to Arizona’s State Farm Stadium could be a good thing – especially considering what happened the last time tonight’s opponents Buffalo dropped by!
Free Bills vs 49ers live stream
Tonight’s Buffalo Bills vs San Francisco 49ers game kicks off at 8.15pm ET/5.15pm PT (1.15am GMT) at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Full Monday Night Football NFL live streaming and TV channel details are below, including a free Monday Night Football live stream in the UK courtesy of Channel 5 – and you can watch your preferred coverage from anywhere by adding a good VPN to your software roster.
Probably the most iconic moment of the season so far happened right here, with *that* last-gasp Kyler Murray Hail Mary dropping into the hands of DeAndre Hopkins with barely two seconds on the clock, to snatch what looked like certain victory out of the Bills’ hands three weeks ago.
Buffalo have had a lot of time to stew over that result, as they’ve somehow only played once since then, a bounce-back win over the Chargers, but with the resurgent Dolphins just a game behind them in the AFC East, that Cardinals defeat may still prove costly in the long run.
San Fran are down but not quite out of the picture, having somehow conjured a win over the Rams out of the bag. It was Nick Mullens’ first victory as a starter since September, and the 49ers are now just a game behind – it’s them again – the Cardinals in the race for the playoffs.
Josh Allen didn’t exactly cover himself in glory against the Chargers, fumbling and throwing an interception, but the 49ers have struggled against mobile QBs, and he could get the run of the park tonight. Read on as we explain how to watch the Bills vs 49ers on Monday Night Football today and get a 100% FREE and legal NFL live stream today, no matter where you are in the world.
How to watch the Bills vs 49ers from outside your country
If you’ve mismatched a holiday or you’re away on business and you want to watch your country’s coverage from abroad, then you’ll need to use a VPN. This will help you dial in to a location back in your home country to avoid geo-blocks and regain access to the content and services you already pay for back home.
A VPN is generally perfect for this as it allows you to change your IP address so you appear to be in a completely different location when the big game is on.

How to watch 49ers vs Bills: live stream NFL in Australia
If you live in Australia and want to watch the NFL this season, you have several options to do so and are well covered for this week’s 49ers vs Bills game, which is scheduled to start at 12.15pm AEDT on Tuesday.
Just as Foxtel is, Kayo Sports is also showing a 49ers vs Bills live stream.

An alternative for diehard NFL fans is NFL Game Pass as it is also available in Australia, and even though it is marginally more expensive you have a much wider range of features.
Should I buy an NFL Game Pass?
Watching NFL online has never been easier thanks to the wide variety of streaming services now available. However, the league also has its own streaming service called the NFL Game Pass which allows die-hard football fans to watch every game.
It’s really geared towards international fans and that’s where it’s a great option. In most of the NFL’s main international markets, a Game Pass Pro subscription will get you access to every single regular season and playoff game live, plus the Super Bowl, and you also get the league’s live highlights show, RedZone. It costs £14.99 a week or £143.99 a year, so if you’re a big fan who watches multiple games every week, it breaks down quite favourably.
As well as the UK and Ireland, the service is available in countries like Mexico, Germany and most of Europe, and Australia – with only ‘domestic markets’ the US and Canada missing out on the full-fat offering.
Instead, there’s a US and Canada-only Game Pass option available for $99 a a year that lets you watch commercial-free full game replays right after they’ve finished. Not the worst offer we’ve ever heard, but don’t get caught out – GamePass does not offer live NFL games in the US or Canada.
Should you decide to give Game Pass a shot, apps for Android and iOS mobile devices as well as on the likes of Chromecast, Apple TV, Roku, PS4, and more – plus you can obviously watch on your laptop or desktop computer through a browser.
The only caveat for non-domestic markets (e.g. the UK) are that some games are subject to blackout restrictions due to deals with local pay TV providers (e.g. Sky).
