The NFL season 2022-2023 is well underway! It might be tempting to think you can watch NFL games on Apple TV free without cable just by downloading the NFL channel app, but that’s not the case.
Unfortunately, NFL streaming rights do not allow free streaming on televisions via the NFL app. Don’t worry. You can still watch NFL on your Apple TV all season long and even during the playoffs.
The fuboTV free 7-day trial is another easy and legal way to watch NFL on Apple TV. Here’s everything you need to know about watching football on Apple TV.
WATCH NFL GAMES ON APPLE TV WITH FUBOTV
You can replace cable or satellite TV service with fuboTV (free 7-day trial) if you think of Apple TV as a cable box replacement. If you sign up for a fuboTV and add the app to your Apple TV, you’ll find it functions like cable.
Over 100 live channels (including ESPN, NFL Network, FOX, CBS, NBC, and many others), a cloud DVR, and on-demand content are available to you. Apple TV offers all the channels you need to watch NFL, such as NBC, CBS, FOX, ESPN, and NFL Network.
How is fuboTV different from cable? First, this plan is much cheaper than typical cable packages and comes with no contract.
Like Netflix or any other streaming app, you can keep fuboTV as long (or as short) as you like. Service starts at around $60 a month after a free trial, which is half the cost of the average cable bill.
You can start watching fuboTV on Apple TV in minutes by following these steps:

Does Apple TV+ have NFL Network?
As part of the NFL’s new streaming service, NFL Plus, Apple TV+ may ultimately receive Sunday Ticket if Apple’s bid to buy it succeeds.
Some reports claim Apple has already acquired the rights to the NFL’s Sunday Ticket as part of its existing sports service.
How do I get the NFL app on my Apple TV?
The Apple TV must be at least the 4th generation and be capable of 4K if you intend to use it. Purchase your NFL Game Pass Apple TV subscription from iTunes or NFL.com/gamepass on the web. Then, open the App Store and search for the NFL app.
