Even though they have never won a Superbowl, they always seem to be in the thick of the playoffs. It’s no wonder loyal fans want to watch Vikings games no matter where they may be. After all, they will probably make the playoffs and may make a great run!

How to Watch Out-of-Market Minnesota Vikings Games
As a fan of what is arguably America’s most popular sport, you generally have it easy. Your Vikings play an average of one game per week, usually on Sundays, with the occasional weeknight game broadcast on national networks. Yet, your life can turn upside down when you move away from Minnesota, spend time in another state, or even another country.
How do you watch the Vikings? Of course, your first thought may be the national networks, but CBS and Fox regionalize their Sunday broadcasts, so if you’re not in Minnesota, you may be out of luck. You’ll only have a choice of four games on Sunday, two on each network. For example, if you travel to Florida, you’ll get Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars games, but not one from northern teams.
Fans of hockey and Major League Soccer (MLS) can turn to ESPN+ to watch their heroes, while Major League Baseball fans have MLB.TV to watch out-of-market games. NBA League Pass takes care of basketball fans.
Minnesota Vikings fans have a solution too: NFL Sunday Ticket – though it’s only available on YouTube and YouTube TV.

Do Minnesota Vikings games sell out?
Some Minnesota Vikings games may sell out. The exact status varies from game to game. Regardless of sell-out status, local fans can always enjoy watching the Vikings on TV or other devices without facing blackouts. This is because the NFL no longer imposes its blackout rule (which prevented games from airing in the local market if they didn’t sell out). The rule was last implemented in 2014.
