Watch Every NFL Game Free Sunday Ticket On Fire Stick 2018
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.
Best Official Ways to Watch NFL on Fire TV
Thursday Night Football with Amazon Prime
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.
How It Works
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?
NFL Sunday Ticket App
A good option for those with deeper pockets is the NFL Sunday Ticket app for Firestick.
How It Works
- First you would need to sign up for an NFL Sunday Ticket package with Direct TV
- Then, using the Amazon App store on your Fire Stick or Fire TV, Download the free NFL Sunday Ticket app
- When prompted, enter your Direct TV credentials into the app
- You should be redirected to NFL Sunday Ticket menu, which will allow you to watch any NFL game regardless of where you live. It also allows you to watch NFL rewind which lets you watch cut down versions of NFL games after they they have aired.
Unofficial Ways to Watch NFL on Fire TV

How Watch NFL for Free On Firestick
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.
Best Unofficial Ways To Stream NFL Games On Fire Stick and Fire TV

No jailbroken Firestick is complete without Mobdro, a free ad supported IPTV app that allows you to freely stream most channels you would expect to find in a premium cable package. While it doesn't have a true way to watch NFL Sunday ticket, you will be able to find each game as long as you know where to find it. We recommend the Sky Sports streams of the games as they have much less commercials than the American versions.
Swift Streamz is a free IPTV app for Fire Stick, Fire TV, and Android device that boasts up to 700 channels from around the world. Again, we recommend watching the games on Sky Sports network.
