The National Football League has release a brand new NFL app for the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick that combines all of their various streaming content into a single app. With this new app you can access free ad-supported highlight clips through NFL Now, live game coverage via NFL Network + RedZone if you activate the app through a cable provider, and access to every NFL game back to 2012 with an NFL Game Pass subscription. The new NFL app is available on all Fire TV and Fire TV Stick models, new or old, and is a must have app for any NFL fan.
The NFL Now section is where you’ll find the latest free content within the app. You can stream NFL Now Live, which is the NFL’s highlights show. You’ll also find on-demand trending and highlight clips here as well.
Moving down takes you to a list of the latest games. If you just want to see the latest scores, they’re displayed on each item in the list without needing to click through to the specific game.
When you do click through into a specific game, you’ll find free highlight clips from only that game. If you have a Game Pass subscription, you’ll also be able to watch the entire game, a condensed version of the game, and the coaches film if it’s available.
A Game Pass subscription will run you $74.99 or 7,499 Amazon Coins for the duration of the current season and can be purchased from within the app. If you do plan to buy the subscription, you can actually save yourself a bit of money if you purchase Amazon Coins first and then use them to buy the Game Pass subscription.
The “Seasons” section of the app is where you’ll find older archived games. Currently, every game going back to the 2012 pre-seasons is available. Just like with the latest games, you can watch highlight clips for free from any game, or watch the entire game if you have a Game Pass subscription. This includes playoff games, the Pro Bowl, and the Super Bowl from every season.
If you have a cable subscription, you can activate the app to watch live streaming game converage through the NFL Network channel and the NFL RedZone channel.
Each NFL team also has a dedicated page within the app. Selecting a specific team will bring up access to every game that team has played since 2012, which again is available to Game Pass subscribers. You’ll also see a list of all the free NFL Now highlight clips and videos for the selected team.
Lastly, the app allows you to login with your NFL.com account. I presume logging in will tailor the app to your specific team and interests. Overall, this new NFL app is a very nice addition to the Fire TV app library. It’s great to see such a large array of viewing options all in a single app. From free ad-supported content, to cable activated content, to direct subscription content, there is likely something for every NFL fan to enjoy within this app, regardless of how little or how much you want to pay.
