How to stream NFL live online with 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 NFL Game Pass which allows die-hard football fans to watch every game. Just like other modern streaming services, there are also Game Pass apps for Android and iOS mobile devices as well as on the likes of Chromecast, Apple TV, Roku, PS4 and Xbox One.
But there is a catch…the $99 service only allows you to watch replays of games that have already aired on television. This means you won’t be able to watch live games as they happen – so a bit of a bummer.
Especially when you consider that the International Game Pass gives its subscribers the ability to see every game of the season absolutely live! It costs around $176 for the required Pro version, but can’t be used if you’re outside the US. UFC 246 Live Stream
Live stream NFL during blackout games and outside the country
If a game is not playing locally due to an NFL blackout or you’re wanting to watch your Game Pass subscription from outside your country (away on business or holiday, perhaps?), then you’ll need to use a VPN to dial in to a location back in your home country to avoid geo-blocks.
A VPN is perfect for this as it allows you to change your IP address so you appear to be in a completely different location. We’ve tested hundreds of VPNs and can recommend these as the three best VPNs currently available.
How to watch NFL on TV in the US
Even without an expensive cable TV subscription, you’ll still be able to watch plenty of football games live over-the-air in the US. With an indoor TV antenna you’ll be able to watch Sunday afternoon games on CBS and Fox, Sunday Night Football on NBC and some Thursday Night Football games on Fox. In addition to these options, if your local team is playing a game that is shown on either ESPN or on the NFL Network, then it will likely be simulcast on a local station as well.
If you’re a cord cutter or don’t like the restrictions of NFL Game Pass, then one of these alternatives may be a better fit.
How to stream NFL live in the UK
American football fans in the UK will be able to watch the latest NFL season on Sky Sports with the network showing games across various channels including Sky Sports Main Event and online via the Sky Go app.
If you’re already a Sky customer, you can add the complete sports package to your plan for £23 per month or pick specific channels for £18 per month. If you don’t need to watch every game this season, you can also purchase a Sky Sports pass from Now TV with daily, weekly and monthly options available off contract.
If you’d rather stream every game live online, then the international version of NFL Game Pass is your best bet. For £143.99 you can sign up for the service’s Pro plan which will allow you to watch all 256 regular season games, the playoffs and the Super Bowl live online.
Not in the UK but still want to catch the action on your Sky Go app or on Game Pass? Then grabbing a VPN will let you log into a UK IP address so you can live stream NFL as if you were at home.

Canadian NFL fans looking to catch this season’s games on television can do so by tuning into TSN, CTV and CTV TWO as they are the league’s exclusive broadcast partner in Canada.
