We think NFL+ is worth it if you don’t mind watching live in-market games on your phone or tablet or if you want full-game replay for later viewing.

Following months of rumors and speculation last year, NFL+ replaced NFL Game Pass for U.S.-based subscribers, now offering two paid tiers and live in-market regular season and postseason games, which is a vast improvement, TBH.

Its plans start at $6.99 a month, but most hardcore NFL fans will want more coverage than live in-market and playoff games on their mobile devices can provide, even if the full-game replays are a handy feature.

The live NFL games available on NFL+ are the same games you can watch on your local channels. You can also watch national fixtures like every game on NFL Network and Thursday Night Football, Sunday Night Football, and Monday Night Football matchups. The big catch—or fumble—is that live NFL+ games are only accessible on mobile phones and tablet devices. That means you can’t watch your favorite teams on your TV or desktop computer—so you’ll have to show off your 4K home entertainment setup another way.

Of course, you can already watch in-market NFL games if you have a cable, satellite, or live TV streaming subscription. Even a simple over-the-air (OTA) TV antenna will get you those same NFL matchups if you’re within range of your local ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC affiliates.

So our hot-take recommendation is to skip NFL+ if you already have TV service. But if you don’t have TV service, and you’re on a tight budget and starved for live football, go ahead and give NFL+ a try. There’s even a seven-day free trial you can take advantage of for good measure.

Stream your cable or satellite TV package

Most cable and satellite TV providers have a free mobile app that allows you to stream your live channels, DVR recordings, purchases, and rentals. We like DISH Anywhere the best, but we’ve also tested and reviewed mobile apps from Cox, Spectrum, and Xfinity. Click the links to read our reviews.
