When the NFL’s schedule comes down to the wire, the big game will be on Sunday, Oct. 10

— When the NFL schedule comes to a close, you will be able to watch the playoff games live in the U.S. on a huge screen in your living room.
The NFL Network is adding a new feature to its platforms called Game Pass, which allows fans to watch games on their computers and mobile devices.
For those who can’t make it to a game, Game Pass gives viewers the chance to watch them live on their TV or mobile devices through the NFL Network.
Game Pass allows fans the chance for unlimited replay access and can be downloaded on Xbox Live Gold memberships, the NFL announced.
“Game Pass will give us a huge boost in the quality of our content, and we’re excited to give fans the opportunity to watch all 32 regular-season games,” NFL Network Senior VP of Sports Business Development David Schoenfeld said.
If you’re not a member of a Game Pass membership, you can access all the games on the NFL website, and the network is also rolling out its own video service, which will allow fans to stream any NFL games on a device, from phones to televisions.
Game Pass subscribers also have access to a free NFL app for mobile devices, which offers exclusive content for those who subscribe.
NFL Network and ESPN announced in February that they would begin rolling out their own video-on-demand service to their platforms in 2018.
ESPN will offer video streaming of games, and fans will be the first to watch live streams on the network and other platforms through a new video-streaming app called NFL Mobile.
More than 400 NFL games are expected to be shown live on the networks platforms, including the upcoming regular- and postseason-game broadcasts, according to an NFL Network report.
The network also announced on Monday that the first game to be televised live on NFL Network in 2018 will be Sunday’s Super Bowl between the Carolina Panthers and Seattle Seahawks.
That game is scheduled to be played at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
