NFL Now, the National Football League’s brand new online network, has just been released on the Amazon Fire TV. The NFL announced their new online network near the beginning of the year with promise that it would be making its way to streaming devices before the end of the year. They’ve made good on that promise by first releasing the app on the Apple TV last month, and second on the Fire TV today.
The app is a great step forward, but still not what cord-cutting NFL fans are after. The app is missing the one feature most fans want, which is the ability to stream live games. What the app does offer are highlight videos, live press conference analysis, and access to the league’s NFL Films vault. Some of this content is free, while full access requires a $1.99 a month subscription. The NFL has stated that games will eventually be available a la carte through the app, but they’ve refused to comment on live streams.
