Whether you want to watch out-of-market NFL games or are trying to keep tabs on your favorite fantasy stars, the Amazon Fire TV Stick (AKA Firestick) has some great options out there for catching every NFL game.
Here are some of the best ways we've found for streaming NFL on your Firestick both officially and unofficially.
Even with its decline in ratings lately, the NFL's popularity still dwarfs every other professional sports league in the United States. This fact is what made it so important for Amazon to break off a piece of the action, and in 2017 paid big money for rights to stream Thursday Night Football to its Amazon Prime members.
As long as there is a Thursday Night Football game on, Amazon Prime members should see the game featured on their home screen. While this is likely, its always possible that you might not see it. In this case, you can use the Fire TV search console. Alternatively, if you have Alexa you can summon the game by saying something like “Alexa, watch Thursday Night Football on Fire TV”.
While Thursday Night Football on is a welcome perk for Prime members, it still leaves Non-Prime Members out in the cold. It also begs the question of where are we supposed to catch all the Sunday and Monday NFL game action?
A good option for those with deeper pockets is the NFL Sunday Ticket app for Firestick.
While it does cost $20 a month, SET TV is worth every penny for sports lovers. You get access to over 500+ live streaming channels with over 100 of them dedicated to live sports. It can be installed on any device including phones, tablets, as well as Windows and Mac computers.
For more on Set TV you can see our video below which gives you a brief tutorial on how to install Set TV as well as a demo of the NFL Sunday Ticket which starts at about the 2:50 mark.
The truly free options on our list are ad supported streaming apps. In our experience the ads didn't distract all that much from the live streaming experience.
Because they don't offer the true NFL Sunday Ticket experience the way Set TV or the NFL Sunday Ticket app do, you may have to do some sleuthing as to where to find the best streams of your favorite NFL teams.
With our last three choices, we found that we could access most games via the Sky Sports channels out of the UK. The games are the same as what is aired in the US except that there are much less commercials.
