Everything You Need to Know About the NFL's New Streaming Service

The NFL has launched its first streaming service exclusively for mobile devices and tablets. Learn more about NFL+ and NFL+ Premium with SmartMove.

The National Football League (NFL) launched its first streaming service on July 25, 2022. NFL+ is an exciting development and provides an option for football fans to exclusively stream football games from their smart TVs, mobile devices or tablets.

The National Football League's First Time Managing a Streaming Service

One of television's most significant rating attractions is the NFL Network. In 2021 alone there was an average of 17.3 million viewers per game. Although there will still be games on the NFL Network, the NFL believes streaming services are the future of how people will consume content, which led to the kick-off of NFL+.

NFL+ is the first official streaming platform the National Football League has managed. Additionally, they are also providing a premium upgrade subscription, NFL+ Premium.

The league continues to look for new ways to reach viewers and is excited to jump into the streaming world. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell noted, "Today marks an important day in the history of the National Football League with the launch of NFL+."

What Makes the NFL's New Streaming Service Unique

NFL+ and NFL+ Premium are different from other streaming platforms because they are specifically designed for mobile devices and tablets. This unique feature allows fans to take their favorite team with them wherever they go and never miss a game.

However, this does not prohibit fans from using other streaming devices like smart TVs to watch NFL+ and NFL+ Premium. Since the new streaming options, whether you stick with NFL+ or upgrade, don't have their own apps, you'll need to download the NFL app to your smart TV in order to access this content.

What's Included in NFL+

NFL Game Pass was the foundation upon which the concept of NFL+ was created. With NFL+, you'll get access to the great content you’ve become accustomed to plus new features. You can now enhance your football-watching experience for only $4.99/month or $39.99/year. These include:

Live NFL Games

You'll have access to live stream regular season games — no matter if it’s one of the many Sunday afternoon games or the coveted primetime games on Monday Night Football. You’ll never miss a minute of the action from week one to the playoffs and all the way to the Super Bowl from the convenience of your mobile device or tablet.

Preseason and Postseason Games

In addition, you'll also have access to all 49 live out-of-market preseason and postseason games. This means the ability to watch any game will be right at your fingertips all season long.

Real-Time Game Audio

Another great feature of NFL+ is the live game audio. If you can’t watch the game, this feature allows you to listen in real-time on your mobile device.

On-Demand Replays

In addition to live games, you'll also have access to on-demand replays of every game. This is a great way to catch any games you may have missed.
