NZBuc:
spencer: Well I took the plunge and went for the full fat $199 plan. I'll surface some time in February most likely. One goal for me this season is to take a day off and watch an entire Red Zone broadcast live.

Go Bucs!


Brooks had his enshrinement ceremony today :)

Did you use a 10% off code too?

I'm lucky - nearly all Mondays during NFL season I start work at lunch, so watch the full redzone show until then, and snf after work :)


Paid up before finding out about the discount sadly. I'm watching the HOF coverage on NFL Network now.

you could get it cancelled, then re-subscribe (my brother did that with NBA League Pass - which is also provided by neulion)

I forgot Rich. Eisen had that one - use BigMal's code above instead of the 10% ones on nfluk

Also for those running XBMC there has been a lot of work on the NFL Gamepass addon over the last few months.  The UI now looks really great and it's an awesome way to get the NFL on your TV.

I was gutted when I found this out last week for the first preseason game. Being a 20+ year 49ers fan, I have watched every game over the past few years and was trying to work out how I could afford this.
However, I believe the paywall has been added because ESPN & ESPN2 are now both available on SkyGo. I dont know exactully what content ESPN2 will have, but it has got to be more than just the Sunday/Monday night games we currently get on ESPN. Plus I saw someone mention SummitSports has some NFL games too, so that may give us a reasonable coverage?

So if you have Sky then the ESPN content is going to be good unless you want to follow a particular team.

I've also read that the NFL Now app will be coming to the Apple TV by the end of the month. Word is that it won't have live games like Game Pass, but for non-US/UK viewers the option to subscribe to get access to Redzone and NFL Network. I guess we'll see soon enough.

Yep ESPN2 will be on Sky as of 1 September

The past two seasons have had the NFL Gamepass 'cost' sponsored by Visa, that's apparently how it was free.  I liked it while it was there, but I don't watch enough NFL to warrant paying for it.

Yeah it cost me $100 to follow the Colts which for me is preferable to signing up to Sky and maybe only seeing a couple of Colts games.

There is also this?

ESPN launches new free digital video platform to push brand into mainstream

 

ESPN View ESPN is to make a major new digital push with the launch a free new short-form video offering for Australia and New Zealand called ESPN View, Mumbrella can reveal.

 

The new video product brings together the video from all of ESPN’s digital sport properties into one place and for free, and is likely to be a challenger to rival Fox Sports as well as the offerings from the sports codes themselves. Content will include footage from its various panel shows and documentaries, online sports news sites like ESPNcricinfo and ESPNFC, plus video match reports across AFL, NRL, A-League, Super Rugby and Cricket.

 

“This was a natural play for us given TV is a centrepiece of ESPN in Australia”, said Lance Peatey ESPN’s director digital products and partnerships.

 

“Our business in Australia is our TV channels and our digital business, on that side we are the largest multichannel publisher across the sports category but those users are splintered across six different websites and we want to aggregate all the video across our network into one destination for sports fans.”

 

The new product is designed to cater to the tastes of Australian and New Zealand sports fans with an unrestricted video experience, and is designed to responsively adapt across any device but will challenge incumbent players such as Fox Sports and the major sporting codes who have in recent years ramped up their digital and video offerings.

 

“Most of those models (Fox Sports) are paid models and ironically even though we come from Pay-TV we are in fact trying to aggregate the digital assets across our network and also gives users a taste of what our channels on Foxtel carry,” he said.

 

“We are certainly not looking at the canibalisation of our TV product. This is complimentary and it goes against the grain of what other providers are looking at doing with a paid model. Ours is the opposite.”

 

ESPN View replaces the existing footytips.com.au video section, and will be optimised with a range of features for the existing 800,000 active users on that site who have already indicated their favourite sports and teams through a registration process.

 

ESPN’s existing digital properties include espn.com, espnfootytips.com.au, espnfc.com, espncricinfo.com, espnscrum.com, espn.com.au, and ESPN View is already active at footytips.com.au/video and will be rolled out on other properties in the coming weeks.

Just taken a look at NFL Now on the ATV. I think it's next to useless. Take away the game highlights and NFL TV series episodes (extra subscription required for these) and you are left with a bunch of clips and "analysis" from the talking heads. My Twitter feed gives me better content than that!

They should have integrated Game Pass with NFL now. At the very least they should work out I have signed in with an account that has subscribed to Game Pass and provide that archived content at no addional cost.

A big missed opportunity.
