How do you watch football?

While I was overseas I had NFL Game Pass, $169 for every game of the season live in HD.

Now that I'm back in the states I guess I can't use that anymore because of the NFL's agreement with Direct TV from what I understand. Direct TV wants $329 for NFL sunday ticket + monthy fee + 2 year contract.

As far as I know the only other option is NFL Rewind which is pretty cheap, $69, but doesn't show the games live.

I have absolutely no need for cable or satellite. The only TV I watch other than football is on Netflix.

My question is; Are there any other options for watching LIVE football?

Over-the-air broadcasts. You won't get many games, but it's free. Otherwise, bars, I guess.

You actually get Sunday ticket max for free right now with a new account, but of course you are locked in for 2 yrs. I got spoiled with the redzone channel so I have to get Sunday Ticket Max every year.

No, no , no...we're talking about real American football...Not the version where they kick a black a white ball for an approximate amount of time determined by the referee, while flopping on the ground every 5 minutes acting like they just broke a femur, but jumping right up after they see the ref pull out a colored card.

THIS....I record all of the games on local channels plus any being shown on NFL network or espn. Then on Sunday I head to church, get my weekly spiritual fillup then get home and sit on my and start watching noon games around 1 or 1:30, then 3 o clock games, then Sunday primetime....I also avoid social media and anywhere public to avoid spoilers. Helps make 3 hour games 1.5 hours or so with the use of dvr and skipping all the commentary. If it's a matchup I typically skim the game in FF and might rewind if it's a close game. If the Bears are playing a good matchup (i.e. the fudgepackers), I might go spend an hour or 2 or 3 at the bar if it's only on the NFL ticket or Redzone channels. My wife hates football season. and I don't even participate in Fantasy stuff.

That is no way to talk about your 3-time NFC North Champions. You had your shot last year but you got Rodgers'ed.

I watch football by turning off the tv, closing my eyes, and thinking about all the better things I have to do than watch football.

NFL Sunday Ticket usually, but my Bills suck every year so it aint' worth it.

It seems like that they put many of the good games on TV anyways. Flex schedule helps as well.

Not sure I can justify the cost of the NFLST

ESPN package from ATT Uverse and TV package. We got the whole nine yards in regards to the TV package so we have all the sports channels to watch from the comfort of our home. We got tired of running into quite a bit of idiots in the public places like BWW.
