How many of the most-watched NFL games in 2016 will be on mobile?
We may not be seeing every NFL game in the fall, but the biggest games are getting some love.
Here are the top five.
The NFL is getting a little more mobile-friendly, with the league announcing Tuesday that it will allow fans to stream the game on smartphones and tablets.
The change, which is rolling out starting Sept. 3, will allow consumers to watch the games on phones, tablets and other mobile devices.
That means fans can now stream games from their smartphones to TVs, monitors and other devices, allowing them to experience the action with their eyes and ears closed.
The NFL also announced it is adding a new “TV Everywhere” program that lets consumers watch any live sports game via an app.
This new app will be available on mobile devices, tablets, Roku boxes and TVs.
In addition, the league will launch a “Live HD” section on the NFL app, where fans can watch games through the app on TVs, Roku devices and TVs that have the new “Live” feature.
“TV-Ready” TVs and TVs with a built-in receiver will also be available for purchase.
Fans can watch a handful of games in each of the next three weeks: Sept. 11 at Washington, Sept. 18 at Atlanta and Sept. 25 at New England.
The first game of each of those three matchups will be streamed live through the NFL’s mobile app.
The last game will be livestreamed on NFL.com on Tuesday.
“This new TV Everywhere app and live HD section will enable fans to watch games on TVs and other connected devices like TVs, set-top boxes and other smart TVs,” NFL Media President Michael Signora said in a statement.
“Fans will be able to stream NFL games on mobile and tablet devices and stream directly to TVs via their favorite streaming apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Google Play.”
The app will also let fans watch NFL games via an on-demand app.
Fans will be free to sign up for an app-only subscription.
The app is available for iOS, Android and Windows 10.
“We want to give our fans access to the best available sports content and make it easier for them to watch every game on mobile,” NFL Chief Marketing Officer Joe Lockhart said in the statement.
