If you’re a diehard football fan, or you’re trying to manage multiple fantasy teams, you need all of the NFL coverage you can get. In addition to your regular game-day action, adding the NFL+ app might be a good option as you prepare for the second half of the season.
NFL+ can be streamed on numerous internet-connected devices, but it is not available on the Samsung Smart TV. Learn more about the NFL+ app and what devices support it. Also, see what popular streaming services can be watched on a Samsung Smart TV.
What Is NFL+?
NFL+ is an NFL-owned streaming service that offers in-depth football coverage for fans who want more options to watch games, and for highly engaged fantasy football owners who need more injury and waiver wire information. NFL+ has you covered for live action of your local team and primetime broadcasts.
Subscribers to the app get access to the NFL Network, full NFL preseason coverage of local and out-of-market teams, live regular and postseason coverage of your local NFL team, full live coverage of all primetime games, and live audio for every game. In addition, you can download on-demand programming in the NFL library, ad-free game highlights, and NFL Fantasy+ roster and waiver tools on your mobile devices.
The NFL+ package does not include access to the NFL RedZone channel. This popular channel shows live look-in coverage of all Sunday games. It is ideal for fantasy owners, as it highlights individual player performances and shows live action of every game when a team is about to score, or if a major event occurs.
The RedZone channel is exclusively available to NFL+ Premium subscribers. With this subscription, you get access to everything included in the basic NFL+ package, plus the NFL RedZone channel. This gives you complete access to game replays, including full and condensed game action, and all-22 coaches film.
