Default Official 2014 NFL Game Pass Thread

NFL Game Pass fans,

It’s that time once again and we wanted to give our loyal fans on this forum an exclusive peek at what we’ll be offering with NFL Game Pass in 2014. We’ll also use this as the official 2014 NFL Game Pass thread and will actively be monitoring and responding to any questions, concerns, or issues that are brought up. Although we can’t always respond to every post, we will be reading all of them. Thanks again for your continued support and we look forward to an exciting new NFL season.

Subscriptions

For 2014, there will be three NFL Game Pass plans:

  • Season Plus – All Preseason, Regular Season, and Playoff games (blackout restrictions apply), NFL Network, NFL RedZone and full access to Coaches Film
  • Season – All Preseason and Regular Season games, NFL Network, NFL RedZone and access to select plays of Coaches Film
  • Follow Your Team – All Preseason and Regular Season games of your favorite team and select plays of Coaches Film

Pricing

For the second year in a row, prices are staying at the lowest we’ve ever offered for UK and Ireland fans. We’re committed to keeping the prices consistent year over year while we strive to improve streaming and add more features that our fans are asking for.

Auto Renewal

If you haven’t opted out of auto renewal, your subscription will auto renew on or around 1 August 2014. Season Plus subscribers will experience no disruption in service as your subscription auto renews. For Season and Follow Your Team subscribers, if you don’t want to wait for your subscription to auto renew, you can sign up now using the same NFL.com account you previously used to sign up to gain immediate access for the 2014 season. You will not be billed twice as long as you use the same NFL.com account you used to purchase your 2013 subscription. We’ll be sending out emails to all users with subscriptions set to auto renew prior to them being charged. As always, you can cancel any time by contacting customer support.

Blackouts

For UK and Ireland subscribers: just like the previous two seasons, games locally televised on Sky during the 1pm and 4pm ET windows will be blacked out for 24 hours following the conclusion of game. This applies on mobile/tablet as well as for condensed games. All Playoff games including Pro Bowl and Super Bowl will be locally televised and blacked out in NFL Game Pass for 24 hours as well. As a friendly reminder, this is down from the 6 day blackouts that were in place for the same games in the 2011 season.

Platforms

For 2014, NFL Game Pass will be available for the following platforms:

  • iPhone and iPad with AirPlay support
  • Android mobile and tablet
  • Windows Phone and Surface
And new for 2014, Chromecast will be supported for both iOS and Android devices. Additionally, NFL Network archived content will be available on mobile/tablet devices for 2014

Downloads

We’re very excited to announce that you will be able to download full games, condensed games, and Coaches Film on mobile and tablet devices in high definition with video controls featuring slo-motion playback. This was one of the most requested features for from our fans over the past few years. Downloads feature will be coming soon to iOS devices. Additional devices may be supported later in the season.

Hard Knocks

This season, you’ll be able to watch NFL Film’s Hard Knocks series as on-demand content. The new 2014 season of Hard Knocks featuring the Atlanta Falcons and the 2013 season featuring the Cincinnati Bengals will be available on web and mobile/tablet.

Slow Motion

You can now watch live and on demand games, Condensed games, and Coaches Film in slow motion on pc.

Localized Time

Another highly requested feature, you’ll now be able to set all the dates and times to be displayed in your local time zone instead of only being able to see schedules times in EST for tablet and mobile devices.

Search

You can now search for plays featuring players, teams and specific play types for all games in a specified season then watch all of the resulting plays. Previously, search results were limited to a specified game.

Referral Program

Like last year, you can earn chances to attend the Jaguars vs Cowboys game at Wembley Stadium on 9 November 2014 when your friends sign up for NFL Game Pass using your personal referral URL. Your friends will save 10% off the price of a Season Plus subscription to NFL Game Pass. The Referral Program will be available mid-July.

We hope you’re as excited as we are for the 2014 NFL Season. Feel free to ask any questions here and for more immediate or account/billing-related, please contact customer support:

  • Call customer support at 407-936-0867 (Any time from 10:00am ET to 10:00pm ET.)
  • Send an e-mail to gamepass.support@nfl.com (All emails will be responded to within 24 hours.)

Hi Admin

Thanks for the new features. I am really happy the team implemented the download features and the archived shows on tablet.

About the download feature: will games be downloaded for viewing at the highest bitrate (4500 kbps) ?

About the Referral program: it is only applicable to the UK, or worldwide ?

Regards

Decent new headline features that are a step forward but can you confirm if anything improvements have been made under the covers to make the service more robust?

Great news on the download feature. Just wondering why it hasn't been possible to get an app on the Apple TV though? It was one of the most requested features.

So still no app for Apple TV, xbox, ps or smart tv...the NFL are so behind the times. May I please ask why?

So there is still no way to watch gamepass on tv without a computer / tablet? Surely the NFL should have come into this decade. Look at NBA NHL and MLB...all available on the above.

Well I am pleased with download option anyway, but .... Can we make it a priority for next year..?

Nothing on archived content for mobile devices. Shame.

You're bound to get some negative feedback from people who wanted specific features (just the nature of things these days, with people's higher expectations), so it's only fair to say that some of the new things you're bringing in look really good (personally, I'm really pleased with the Chromecast option).

Thanks for progressing things.

Great news about the downloads.

I really hope the mobile apps perform better this year. At busy times it was near impossible to have a high quality smooth stream.
