How can I watch NFL games outside local market?
For the past decade, international NFL fans have been able to watch some games on Game Pass. However, that service has not been available since the beginning of the 2019 season. If you’re looking for solutions, read on!
This was the first season since 2015 without the international NFL games, so there are a lot of fans looking for solutions
This was the first season since 2015 without the international NFL games, so there are a lot of fans looking for solutions. Whether you’re an international fan or a U.S.-based fan who wants to watch your team from overseas, this guide will teach you exactly how to watch NFL games outside local market.
Fans do not have access to NFL Game Pass in North America
NFL Game Pass is a subscription-based product that allows you to watch live games on your computer, tablet or smartphone. However, if you’re in North America and want to watch the game on your TV with the NFL app, you’ll have to get it through a streaming service like Sling TV or PlayStation Vue.
NFL.com/gamepass is only available for fans in select countries outside North America
NFL Game Pass is only available for fans in select countries outside North America. NFL Game Pass is available in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. To view the list of games available on your local Fox Sports channel or to purchase a live stream of any game not aired on that channel please visit http://www.foxsportsgo.com.
YOU CANNOT WATCH REDZONE with NFL game pass
Redzone is a channel, while NFL game pass is a service. If you were to put it simply: you can’t watch Redzone with NFL Game Pass, but you can watch it with a VPN and then use your subscription to access the channel as well.
Here’s how it works:
- You get an account for one of our recommended VPN providers (we recommend ExpressVPN).
- You connect to their VPN server that has been set up in the US. This allows you to spoof your IP address and appear as though you are accessing the internet from within the US—even if you live abroad! The benefit of using this method over others like Hulu or Sling TV is that most sports channels will black out international games (except in China), so this trick will work for any region where there are blackout restrictions on certain teams or channels within their markets.3) Now all that’s left is subscribing to NFL Game Pass! There are two options available: A yearly plan ($99), which gives access through October 2020; A monthly plan ($24), which will allow access until September 30th
Because that’s the NFL Network, which is not included in any way on NFL Game Pass — it’s another service entirely.
NFL Game Pass is a streaming service. It does not include the NFL Network, which is a cable channel. NFL Game Pass is not the same as the NFL Network, and it doesn’t include any of those games that are broadcast on television channels like FOX, CBS and NBC (unless they are picked up by one of those networks). If you want to watch an out-of-market game broadcast on FOX, CBS or NBC, then you must subscribe to your local network’s live TV stream — such as Hulu with Live TV or PlayStation Vue—and log into their app while your device has access to a Wi-Fi network where these services have internet access.
Use a VPN if you want to watch your team outside your local market.
If you’re looking for a way to watch NFL games outside your local market, a virtual private network (VPN) is an excellent option. Using a VPN will allow you to bypass geographic restrictions and enjoy more content than legally possible in your area.
To get started, we recommend choosing one of these top five VPN services: ExpressVPN, IPVanish, NordVPN, CyberGhost and VyprVPN. Once you’ve signed up for the service of your choice and installed its software on your device of choice (Windows/MacOS/iOS/Android), simply connect to a server located in the United States or Canada where the game is being broadcasted live. If there are no servers available in either country—or if you’d like even more options—simply connect to another server location that’s close enough by geographically speaking: Mexico City (Mexico), London (United Kingdom), Paris (France) or Frankfurt (Germany).
To recap, NFL Game Pass is the service that you need to watch any game on NFL.com. It offers a lot of great features for fans including live streaming and on-demand replays of all games, as well as an option called Redzone, which allows you to see every touchdown scored during a Sunday afternoon in real time! However, if you want to watch this content outside North America then there are some limitations that may prevent it from working properly without using a VPN first.
