The pros have made their cuts, you've selected your fantasy team, and the starters are finally on the field. Football season has officially begun. Here are apps, services, and products to help you enjoy the games.
The Ultimate Viewing Party
You love your football, and we respect that. With Savant Smart View Video Tiling, you can watch like a pro anywhere in your home. Available in 4, 6, and 9 source inputs, you decide how you want to view the games. Using Apple TV or Chromecast, you can easily keep track how your fantasy team is doing compared to the rest of your league.
The tiled feed can also be sent through your video matrix to play on multiple screens in your home. That way you and your friends can enjoy the game relaxing in your home theater, having lunch out by the grill, or at the bar in your man-cave.
Game on the Go
We’ve all been there, your team is about to play their biggest rival and your expected to be someplace else, doing something else, missing the game of the season. In our constantly connected, multi-tasking world, there’s no reason you can’t root for your team regardless of where you are.
With WatchESPN, you can stream Monday Night Football to your computer or tablet, all you need is your cable login and password. Unfortunately, this app won’t help you on Sundays or Thursdays.
The Mannings notoriously rapped about it, twice, but here’s what you need to know about the NFL Sunday Ticket. It has three packages ranging from $199.99- $329.99. Although it’s hosted by DIRECTV, you can purchase the package without switching to their service. The packages allow streaming to computers, phones, and tablets. The higher packages include extra features such as console streaming, Red Zone, and the Fantasy Zone. NYC residents are eligible for the service, but Hamptons addresses are denied.
If you have Verizon Wireless NFL Mobile is available on your phones and tablets. Unfortunately this beloved app has taken a hard hit when it changed its permissions, making it more difficult to log in, and raised its price ($40) for audio.
Network Streaming- Open a browser and you can stream NBC’s Sunday games. This site also allows you to pick different camera angles, which is nice a feature. CBS plans on streaming the AFC playoffs.
