Questions and Answers

I want to watch the Denver Broncos play but I do not want to subscribe to a TV provider. How do I do it?

We have a Roku at our house and an Amazon Kindle Fire at the boat. I can't get NFL on either without a TV provider.

Unfortunately, your devices require that you log into a TV provider to watch the NFL games. The NFL makes its money through subscriptions to TV service providers. A fraction of the money you pay each month to a company like Dish, DirectTV, or Comcast for television service every month goes to the NFL. If you could just log into a service online and watch the game for free, the NFL would lose a lot of money. For this reason, you can't watch the NFL on your devices without signing up for a service. That being said, there are websites available that allow you to sidestep the TV login process; these are listed below. Note, however, that since you are not paying for a service that requires a subscription, they may be illegal in your area:

  • If you have Comcast, Time Warner, or AT&T You-Verse, you can log into WatchESPN.com using your ISP credentials, not your TV credentials.
  • NFL2Go.com
  • OfficialTVStream.com
  • If none of these options work for you, and you don't want to pay for a television service package, you can pay for NFL Sunday Ticket, which will give you an all-access pass to the NFL season.

I've loaded NFL mobile on my Galaxy S5 and I'm watching NFL I can't get it to work on Galaxy 10 tablet.

Can you help get it working on Galaxy 10 tablet?

Your tablet must be on the Verizon network then. Previously, Verizon did not have a deal with the NFL to allow the app to be supported on their tablets. The good news is that now (2016) there is a deal in place. Uninstall the app from the tablet. Clear the cache on the tablet then install again. The app should work now for you.

How do I get Game Pass to work?

I have an LG pad 10 and it will not allow me to watch any of the games. I downloaded the app to my tablet, but when I try to open it, I only get a schedule of the games.

If you are trying to watch a game live that is being shown on a local TV channel in your area, then you will have to wait for it to be put in the On Demand section of the app. You will also need an active subscription to Game Pass before other sections besides scheduling will be displayed.

Can't log into my Verizon account in NFL Mobile on Samsung Galaxy Tab 4.

I've downloaded NFL Mobile on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 4. I've registered and logged onto my NFL account, but whenever I go to the option to log into my carrier under settings, a window pops up and loads endlessly and doesn't let me log in. I have tried: I've tried downloading My Verizon, but my device isn't eligible. I think it was caused by: Bug in the design of NFL Mobile.

It was not available for Verizon tablets before 2014. Put your Tab 4 into Recovery Mode. Choose Wipe Cache Partition. Once the tablet has restarted, try to install the app. If you still can't connect to the Verizon Hub, contact them directly for troubleshooting.

Google Play won't let me download the NFL Game Pass.

It says it's not available in my country (USA) even though I already signed up and paid for a game pass on my computer with a Smart DNS service. I'd like to be able to see it on my Android tablet too. Any solutions?

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Your problem is that you used a Smart DNS service which is conflicting with your Google Play information. Turn off the Location on your device. This might work, but you probably are going to have to delete the initial Game Pass account and start over. You can play with Smart DNS after the app has been installed on the device.

How can I watch the New England Patriots vs Dallas cowboys game on my smartphone for free?

Trying to stream this game on my phone.

If you plan on regularly streaming games on your device, you should consider installing Kodi for android in Google Play. Kodi Tip's NFL Game Links have an excellent posting for which links to use for what games etc. SportsDevil is one of the biggest sports apps on Kodi but there are other options listed.

When I try and download the NFL Game Pass app on my tablet. it says it's not supported?

I just purchased a Galaxy Tab A, and when I try to download the NFL Game Pass app, it says it's not supported. Any ideas?

Is your tablet from Verizon? If so, you will need to use NFL Mobile app instead. Clear the cache from the Google Play store and try to install the Game Pass app. It is possible that there is a conflict with geographical location such as out of the app support and Google Play if you use a VPN.

Can you tell me which tablets (make and model) can receive NFL GamePass and support the GamePass Android app. I am in Germany.

I get the response that this app is not compatible with any of my devices.

Some of the Samsung and Apple Products are supported. That is if you did not purchase these devices from Verizon in the US.

NFL Mobile is the app for the Verizon device. The way it works is, any game on a major network such as CBS or Fox will be available for free streaming. There are also websites like NFL Live that stream games for free.
