So are we and what a season it’s already been for the NFL – jam-packed with incredible interceptions, receptions and hand-offs. And now with only three weeks remaining in the regular season, and several divisions are still up for grabs, it’s safe to say that the stakes and tensions are high.
Although this week does bring another loss for the Patriots and although they are still in the running for the play-offs, could it be that they’ve lost their winning streak?
Missed a couple games or ready for your next football fix? Luckily for you we’ll show you how to live stream NFL action no matter where you are in the world. Keep reading to find out the best ways to stream NFL live on all your devices with information on the NFL Game Pass, International Game Pass (well worth finding out about) and network television included.
How to watch the NFL in Australia
If you live in Australia and want to watch the NFL this season, you have several options to do so. Foxtel broadcasts NFL games via ESPN but you will need the network’s Sports Package to be able to watch. Subscribers get up to three live games per week including Thursday, Sunday and Monday Night Football plus all of the playoff games. You can also stream games to your laptop or mobile devices using the Foxtel Go app but you’ll need your Foxtel ID to access the app.
Just as Foxtel does, Kayo Sports will also show a limited selection of NFL games this season. The streaming service has a Basic and a Premium plan with the difference being you can watch on two devices with the Basic plan for $25 per month and on three devices with the Premium plan for $35 per month.
However, big NFL fans will likely be better off signing up for NFL Game Pass as it is also available in Australia.
Watch and live stream the NFL in Canada
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.
However, if you’d rather stream NFL games online, then DAZN (and its free trial) has you covered. The streaming service will give you access to NFL Game Pass, RedZone, NFL Network and more for $20 a month or $150 per year with support for Apple TV, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Roku, Xbox One and PS4.
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.
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.
