Aussie fans of American football can enjoy coverage of the NFL on both free-to-air TV and cable, with Kayo Sports and Foxtel giving you the option to stream games on the go. The only issue? Coverage is limited to a set number of games per week. Here's where NFL Game Pass comes in.
The sports streaming service is your one-stop destination to everything NFL related, allowing you to watch every game live or on demand as well as check out news, statistics and original NFL programming. In other words, it keeps you connected to the sport 24/7, so you can always be on top of the latest developments and see how your teams perform at any time.
What is NFL Game Pass?
NFL Game Pass is an online platform dedicated to the NFL. You can sign up for free and get access to NFL news and a limited number of original programs, or splurge on a paid subscription and stream all NFL games via the Internet, either live or on demand. The service is available on multiple devices and comes with a wide library of top NFL content.
How much is NFL Game Pass?
Signing up for NFL Game Pass is free, but this only gets you live access to the NFL Network, plus on-demand five-minute recaps of games and selected original programming.
You can get an Essential subscription to NFL Game Pass, priced at $148.99/year. This one includes access to live streams of NFL RedZone, as well as live game highlights and even more NFL original programming.
To get the most of the service, you'll want a PRO subscription, which costs $28.99/week. You can also get it for an entire year for $274.99 – paid upfront or in four instalments of $74.93.
Besides everything included in the Essential plan, you get live access to every NFL game, including playoffs and the Super Bowl, plus full replays and game highlights.
Does NFL Game Pass have a free trial?

NFL Game Pass features
Besides the ability to stream live games, NFL Game Pass comes with other features that will appeal to football fans, as well as exciting on-demand content.
Whether you get the PRO or Essential plan, you will have access to Sunday in 60, a full NFL Sunday in about 60 minutes. Every Monday, highlights of every single game will be available in one highlight pack, ready to be streamed or downloaded, making it easy to stay up to date. Great if you're short on time.
Speaking of downloading, NFL Game Pass enables you to download content on mobile devices to watch on the go without burning through your data similar to NBA League Pass. You can also stream on five devices at the same time, which lets share your subscription with a loved one, for instance.
Starting September 2020, the platform finally lets users resume content where they left off. That means you can start any on-demand NFL show or highlights pack, stop part way through and pick up the action in the same spot. This will work across all your devices.
If you tune in for a game late, you can see what you missed with an instant recap of all the big plays from earlier in the game so you're caught up. Besides, the service also offers closed captions where available and a No Spoilers Mode so you can hide scores for games you've missed live and plan to watch on demand.
All games are available in Coaches Film, an alternate viewing mode with different camera angles that coaches, scouts and game officials use for post-game analysis. Coaches Films generally drop on the service 36 hours after the live games during the regular season.
Finally, while live games are likely what fans will get most excited about, the on-demand library available with NFL Game Pass is not too shabby. You can watch original NFL films and learn more about your favourite teams, players and storylines from NFL's history. You can also tune in to previous seasons of Hard Knocks, A Football Life, America's Game and many more, all downloadable to your mobile device.
