How To Watch NFL Games Online in 2016

NFL Sunday Ticket
With the increasing number of people wanting to stream content, live sports included, on top of the popularity of the NFL it’s no surprise the desire to stream games is increasing.

Of course, you can watch games for free online, both on the computer and Internet connected devices but I for one don’t advocate supporting those services. They’re not only illegal, but also unstable.

DirecTV offers the every popular package on their system, but it’s also available for as a standalone subscription on various streaming devices called NFLSundayTicket.TV. No DirecTV equipment or additional subscription required.

Two different plans are offered; NFLSundayTicket.TV To Go for $199.00 & NFLSundayTicket.TV To Go Max for $299.00. The difference between the “To Go” and the “To Go Max” is “To Go Max” offers the Red Zone Channel & Fantasy Zone Channel. Both will allow you to watch NFL Sunday Ticket on various devices.

The service is available on the following services:

  • Xbox One / 360
  • Apple TV
  • Google Chromecast
  • PlayStation 3 & 4
  • Roku (2nd generation box, 2, 3)
  • Amazon Fire (TV & TV stick)
  • iOS (iPad/iPhone 4S and later, Mac OS)
  • Windows (7, 8, 10)
  • Android
  • Complete list of supported devices

Before you hook up a second Internet connected device to your second TV, be aware only one stream of NFL Sunday Ticket is allowed, regardless of the package purchased.

There is a catch though. You will have to qualify based on your address. The approval process takes literally seconds. Up on qualification, you can proceed to purchase.

If you have a buddy who has NFL Sunday Ticket on DirecTV, you can use their log-in to stream games, but again only one stream per account is allowed (plus, doubt DirecTV won’t like the idea of password sharing as well).

The NFL also offers their own package, NFL Game Pass, where you can watch streaming games plus get the local radio call, watch archives games and shows that appear on the NFL Network.

The downside with NFL Game Pass is the games aren’t live, but you can watch starting the day after the game was played. Of course, who wants to watch a game that ended 24 hours ago on delay.
