For that very reason, they can get away with offering less/charging more because no matter, we will still pay it.

UK NFL fans seem like an easy cow to milk and as such we get a raw deal. I'm unhappy with not getting the Redzone on Gamepass or having six day black-outs yet I still pay out the cash. I'll probably continue to do so until I can a) no longer afford SS and GP or b) until the restrictions become so onerous that it renders the product worthless.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels this way.

Secondly do you think it is even worth it? I'm a big time Packers fan, and it seems like some games are already schedulded to be blacked out before I even leave....

Just had a quick glance, and it doesn't look like The Phillippines appear on the list of places you can't get Gamepass. On that basis I'd assume that you can watch it there, provided you are on a good enough broadband connection of course.

As for games blacked out. That is only here in the UK, if you purchase Gamepass here it doesn't matter, if you are actually watching somewhere else where the blackouts don't apply you'll still be able to view the game(s).

Thumbs up Say Goodbye To Sky!!!

If all NFL UK users cancelled their subscriptions with Sky and subscribed to Gamepass, and then Sky would hopefully drop the NFL, then there wouldn't be any blackout games and Gamepass would be able to show the play-offs also. It's too late for this season but for next, just give it a thought. Come on NFL UK users do the right thing!!!

This is never going to happen.

As much as quite a few people here claim they only get Sky for NFL, I would be very surprised if the majority of NFL fans were also fans of other sports.

I certainly wouldn't cancel Sky to make a point about the NFL coverage, because I want Sky for Football, Cricket and Rugby as well as the odd other event. I've said this quite a few times on here, it isn't worth cutting off your nose to spite your face.

If you subscribe to sky sports just for the NFL like I did for many years you are better off with NFL Gamepass. It is galling that they black out games. How do you suggest NFL fans who have paid for NFL Gamepass watch the blacked out games?

You can blame Sky for the blackouts. Just hope when the TV contracts are renewed that NFLUK take UK Gamepass subscribers views into account and do not pander to Sky's demands just to get their contract.
