Apps in Ecuador

Anyone getting the NFL Game Pass App working on their TV?

On TV and not gadgets or computers.

We don't watch NFL, but the pass is free on direct TV but it's all in Spanish. We are more of college sports fans and use or TN US friends login to his cable provider using a VPN.  I was able to stream the March madness app using his login and my VPN.  But now the apps have a built in decoder that shows them when u plug in a phone or iPad by HDMI into your TV and quit working.  Starting the weekend of the 26th, I will let you know if KODI will stream the games.  But I always run a vpn on my kodi just in case but it's not necessarily needed.  Will keep you posted.

My laptop processor isn't fast enough to get a great picture and also has problems locking up due to the streaming speeds.  But my phone is so much faster with a great picture.

Cool, and I look forward to your input after the 26.

How is the resolution with watching games free? This is something that's very important for me as I like crystal clear viewing or FHD on my TV. As for Direct TV I was actually thinking about but only if I can login and use the The Sunday Ticket App. I'm not sure if we can do that in Ecuador because they are two Direct TV entities and is also regional. So if someone knows that let me know.

The thing with the NFL Game Pass is they currently have promo codes for $99 and I want to take advantage of that but the NFL App is not working on my TV or even through my PS4. I get this message "Sorry for the inconvenience but NFL Game Pass is currently moving apps ....please login to NFL,com/gamepass to access ... bla bla bla."

I've had the game pass before and it was awesome as you can easily switch games and even watch 4 games at one and in Full HD.

The NFL Game Pass is working  now and I had to validate my PS4 through a PC . The issue before was that the NFL App wasn't loading on my TV and so I couldn't get the access code.

Despite working now through my PS4 it's still not loading on Amazon Fire Stick. And it froze a couple of times but the frequency is lessening, I'm going on 2+ hours now with no issue.

So what’s great about the NFL App? You can watch every regular season game live on your TV. If you like sport shows and sports news there is a ton of programming all day long, it's literally NFL 24/7. The NFL game archive is also impressive as you can watch all games from 2012 to date, and all Super bowls.

If you want to watch it in Full HD on your TV make sure you have a fast internet connection at least 20 MBs down. Although it doesn't need that much that's what I recommend because speeds fluctuate but with at least 20 MBs your streaming will play flawlessly even if you have other gadgets/PCs on.

One would think that a 60 billion dollar industry which generates more revenue than some sovereign countries would be able to get their App right. But clearly that is not the case. So here is the situation. The App does not freeze anymore, and I've been testing it all day but it logs off after a game is completed. So for instance I let a complete preseason game play and afterwards it logs off. You might say so what just log in again?

Well, to log back in you have to get another code to validate your TV. It's a small inconvenience for me but I can see how this might be an issue for some people who don't tolerate any kind of inconvenience.

Ok, I received a reply from NFL customer service and their App is not ready yet for "Roku, XBox one, PS4, Apple TV, Fire TV and Android TV."

This perfectly explains why it works on my computer without any issues, and also iphone.

And they added if you are outside the U.S. to use the Game Pass International App. I actually have both of them working. On my iphone I have Game Pass Intl and on the PS4 the NFL App because there isn't a Game Pass App I'ntl on PS4. 

Hopefully they get it right before the season begins, but worse case scenario, and if I continue to get these problems with the App on my TV via PS4 I will buy the iphone lightning HDMI cable and simply broadcast the game from the iphone in Full Hd to the TV.
