How to Listen to San Francisco 49ers Radio and Stream Games Live Online (NFL Radio)

Where can I hear 49ers football games for free online?

San Francisco 49ers games can be heard on the radio or streaming online at the teams flagship radio station.  The 49ers flagship stations include both KNBR 680/1050 and KSAN 107.7 The Bone. To stream the game online just go to the stations website and click the Listen Live button.  The pregame show starts 3 hours before kickoff at KNBR, as well as a post-game shown.  The pregame show starts 1 hour before kickoff at KSAN The Bone. 

In Northern California KNBR 680 and 1050 are the sports leaders with its dominant 50,000-watt non-directional signal.  KNBR 680 air waves reaches all of Northern California during the day and stretch to eleven western states at night.

You can also stream San Fran 49ers games online, along with every other NFL game with NFL Audio Game Pass.  As a subscriber of NFL Game Pass you can listen to any NFL game online at

To listen to 49ers games streaming on your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad be sure to check out the TuneIn radio app.  The TuneIn radio app is the best radio app in my opinion, so it's well worth it for finding a feed that streams 49ers games live, as well as other NFL games.

To watch all of the 49ers preseason games live or on-demand you'll want to subscribe to NFL Preseason Live.

I've tried streaming the 49ers games through my ipad, using the tune-in app, 107.7 the bone app, and KNBR app...

They do not work as you suggest. Instead, they play 45 minutes of commercials during the pregame show, with 10 seconds of random pregame interviews, and then the station shifts to a music broadcast and informs the viewer that we must go to NFL audio pass app, which then requires a paid subscription to listen to the game.

I thought that new technology was supposed to make life easier and more accessible, but instead, it just makes life more expensive. Perhaps I'm just gullible. Back to radio!

Hey Ben,

Back when I wrote this article in 2010, the stations were streaming the games. If you can't find a working 49er's station streaming the games, then check the 49er's teams opponent flagship station to find a free stream. Here's a listing of all 32 NFL teams to help you find a working stream of NFL games:

Sometimes the opposing team blocks the game also. When all else fails, search for a sports streaming site. You will have to deal with pop-ups and adds, but the NFL grosses huge amounts of income, there is no reason you should have to pay to listen to a broadcast that is already free for others.
