Enhanced NFL Game Pass for Europe

September 8, 2017

Ahead of the 2017 season, a newly enhanced NFL Game Pass subscription streaming service is rolling out across Europe. It will stream every NFL game live in HD with fully-integrated, real-time game data and statistics and new multi-stream capabilities that allow fans to watch on as many as five devices simultaneously. The new multi-stream option is one of dozens of enhancements and features created using extensive fan research and feedback for NFL Game Pass.

In addition to all the live action, fans will have access to the 24/7 home of the NFL, NFL Network, as well as NFL RedZone which brings fans live look-ins to every touchdown and all the big moments from every Sunday afternoon game across the NFL and hundreds of hours of on-demand shows, series and specials including the award-winning NFL Films productions A Football Life and Hard Knocks.

The service is available across many European countries and territories and is accessible via web, mobile web, all Apple and Android mobile devices, Google Chromecast, Apple TV and Xbox One. PS4 and Amazon Fire TV apps will also launch in September.

NFL Game Pass in Europe is licensed by OverTier; a joint venture between Bruin Sports Capital and WPP, in partnership with the NFL.

We are excited to work with OverTier to take the Game Pass business to the next level.”
