Do you watch nfl online? If you’re an avid NFL (National Football Association) fan or a sports lover for that matter, you probably know that most sports coverage is available online these days. After all, what isn’t available online anymore? The NFL is an enormous organization, watched by millions of people every day all over the world with a particular concentration of viewers in the sport’s home nation the United States. However, it is not as global a sport as, say, the NBA or regular football (soccer for US folks). Still, popular or not, the NFL Super Bowl (the famous NFL finale event) is one of the most watched events in the world with billions of dollars poured into it from all over resulting in a true spectacle for all to see.
If you are one of the millions of NFL fans all over the world, you will naturally want to follow the action that is relevant to you. Whether it be NFL events such as the most-coveted primetime events, or side-events such as Thursday Night Football, Sunday day games, Sunday Night Football, or Monday Night Football NFL, fans will want to get in on the action. While getting into the action is one part of the story (which you can get to at any sports pub or via basic cable TV), it is more important in this day and age that as an NFL fan you can access NFL material quickly and from anywhere. Thanks to the internet, several sports including the NFL are accessible online in both highlight and live forms. The internet has brought us digital streaming, which allows us to view sports in much better quality while getting access to a lot of other features such as angles, forums, the ability to record, notifications, and much more which would be impossible via a basic television subscription.
For these reasons, let’s get into how you can catch the NFL season from anywhere, either via a free legal (or illegal, depending on your region) stream, via your existing sports digital streaming subscription, or on a US-based channel that offers some content for free. What we’ll look at is the issue surrounding geographical blocking, which blocks users that are physically outside of the US (where the majority of NFL content is sourced from), and how to get around that issue to access either; a free stream, a paid subscription stream or a regular channel that covers NFL action.

How to Unblock NFL Content

Geographical blocking (often called geoblocking) is a situation where the internet address trying to access content is blocked because it is outside of a specified region. This will, no doubt, happen if you try to access any NFL-related content online on a US platform, outside of the US. If you are, say, in France, you will not be able to view NFL content on US platforms such as ESPN, NBC Sports, NFL Redzone, The NFL Network, and many more. With some platforms, you will be blocked even if you have a paid subscription! The only way you could watch NFL content or coverage/highlights of the content is via a free stream which also may be illegal in your country, not to mention you will most likely not get the quality or features you are going for.
The best way to catch NFL action is to have an online digital subscription to official websites and platforms. These include;
  • Yahoo Sports App
  • Peacock TV
  • Paramount+
  • Amazon Prime Video
  • SlingTV
  • YouTube TV
  • Fubo TV
  • Hulu+ Live TV
  • DAZN (Canada)
If you have a subscription to one of these services and are physically outside of the US, you will need a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to modify your location and trick the platforms into thinking you are watching locally, upon which your stream will be unblocked. A VPN is a network security software that both encrypts and anonymizes your internet connection. Connecting to a US server will most often bypass any blockage of your feed.

How to Setup Your VPN to View Unblocked NFL Content

To unblock NFL content while outside of the United States, simply download a VPN provider that is of premium quality. You can find several of these on VPN review portals. Next, download the VPN on your device and connect to a server in the United States (any city will do, preferably one that is geographically closer to your location due to ‘ping’). Make sure your browser is closed and your history cleared at this point.
Now, connect to a server in the United States and try to access your regular NFL subscription or service. Ta-da! You should have an unblocked NFL service running now! As simple as it sounds, that’s all there is to it and millions of people now use VPNs for this extremely practical solution!
