Watch the Washington Redskins Live Stream with Sling TV
The best way to watch the Redskins online during the preseason is to use Sling TV.

You watch on your computer, smartphone, or on your TV using a streaming device.
Sling TV has a ton of great channels, but for football fans, the most important by far is NFL Network.
