How to Watch Out-of-Market Kansas City Chiefs Games
Most NFL fans who live within the regional location of their favorite team will have no problem watching their team live on local TV broadcasts. This is because those fans are a part of the “in-market” crowd, and the in-market region will always get access to the local NFL games before anyone else. If you live within the Kansas City area then, you will be able to likely see most Chiefs games live on a local Fox or CBS station.
You: Gotta know when Mahomes is playing again.
Us: We got answers.
However, out-of-market viewers, or those who live outside of the Kansas City area, often have trouble seeing every Chiefs game because their local broadcast stations will usually opt to show their own in-market games over those out-of-market ones. For example, Arizona residents will more likely see Arizona Cardinal games on their TVs rather than Kansas City Chiefs ones.
For out-of-market fans, YouTube or YouTube TV may be the solution to get all the games you want to see from outside your region.

Do I Need a VPN to Watch Kansas City Chiefs Games?
While you do not have to have a VPN to stream in-market Chiefs games, we recommend signing up for one to protect your privacy and to access out-of-market games. VPNs work by encrypting any data you send over the internet so that hackers and other users cannot decode your personal information, like passwords to streaming service websites.
What radio stations are the Kansas City Chiefs on?
Kansas City Chiefs games are broadcast on their flagship station WDAF-FM 106.5 (The Wolf), along with KPRS-FM 103.3 (HOT 103 JAMZ!) and the KC Chiefs Mobile App. Alternatively, Chiefs game audio can also be streamed online from anywhere through Tico Sports’ website (in Spanish), NFL+ or NFL+ Premium (in the US), and Sirius XM NFL Radio.
Do Kansas City Chiefs games sell out?
Some Kansas City Chiefs games do sell out. However, the sell-out status can vary from game to game. Fortunately, local Chiefs fans are no longer left in the lurch due to broadcast blackouts in the event of a game not selling out. The NFL does not implement its blackout policy (started in 1973 and imposed till 2014) anymore. As a result, local fans can catch all in-market Chiefs games on TV and other devices.
