Pro football remains as the most popular sport in America for the last 30 years. According to a 2104 survey by Harris Poll, 35% consider NFL as their favorite followed by Major League Baseball at 14%. NBA followers only compromise 6% of sports fans. Gallup polls shows that NFL has become America’s number favorite sport in 1972 and has retained its number one place in spite of the popularity of baseball, basketball and horse racing. Television is seen as the reason for the popularity of NFL but more so today since anybody can watch NFL games online.
Live streaming of National Football games
There is a wide range of sports organizations in the United States that have partnered with cable and mobile service providers to watch NFL live coverage and access other features, as well. For example, NFL games can be accessed through Verizon mobile devices using the NFL Mobile app. However, there are other mobile apps available besides those provided through Verizon but unfortunately, they do not provide the live video of NFL games. Other sports organizations prefer a different approach by offering apps that work on the Apple iOS as well as Android and Blackberry’s operating systems. In contrast to TV, PC and mobile apps, there is software available that can be downloaded with built-in digital video recorder so that you will never miss any of the games. On the other hand, some events may be exclusive for primetime TV broadcast and while you have been allowed to watch some events online, some of the more important high profile games may not be available.
Watch NFL through ESPN
You do not need to pay for a cable package if you want to watch NFL through ESPN but you need to borrow from a kind friend his username and password that is tied to the ESPN cable account. However, this method of watching NFL through ESPN works only for Monday night games for which they hold the rights to air. WatchESPN is also available and it will allow you to watch the Monday NFL games on your tablet or mobile phone. However, watching NFL games over a mobile device is not as exciting as watching it over a giant screen. WatchESPN app is only great for people who are on the go and do not want to miss any games that they have to contend with their laptops and iPads.
Watch NFL Sunday ticket
DirectTV sells subscriptions to NFL Sunday ticket without the need to buy the TV package and neither is a satellite disk required. You have a choice from 3 packages with different price levels. This will allow NFL live streaming through your mobile gadget or laptop or you can directly stream the live games to your video game console whichever happens to be your preference. However you can save from the costs of buying a DirectTV package if you borrow a password. Keep in mind though that this is only a Sunday ticket for afternoon games and you have to find other options for Thursday, Monday and Sunday night games.
