Watch NFL Network App Reviews

no update doesn’t work

Love the app, but the new update has me signed in as “null” and won’t let me log out so I can log back in with my tv provider.

Good, but plenty of room for improvement.

It’s easy to use & I have had no issues with the current set up. But I wish I could watch on demand programming. Things like NFL Films, America’s Game, Top Ten, etc. That change would get a 5-Star rating from me.

Direct tv

Couldn’t find them as a provider and the app didn’t work well

Terrible performance

Constantly locks up during live stream, but never on commercials. Switching over to a much smoother news app proves it’s not a cell network issue. Need to dedicate more infrastructure resources to improving stream. A shame because I like NFL Network programming.


The worst app for trying to stream Live TV. love the network but can never have more than five undisturbed minutes of streaming. WiFi or not.

Freezes constantly

No issues at all for the first few months, but over the past few weeks the video stream randomly freezes every few minutes. The app is useless now.

Can’t access NFL network

I’ve never had a problem streaming content when the app wants to work. But sometimes when I try to watch NFL Network on my appletv it will give me the random error message “this content is unauthorized”. In the past I have found that delegating the app and reinstalling it will fix it. However this most recent time I’m completely screwed. Now when I go to the website to entree the code generated by NFL network it tells me that the activation code is incorrect even though it’s the one that just popped up on my screen through the app. It’s a shame that sports apps like NFL and ESPN don’t care about their costumers anymore. I’ve certainly had no complaints with the NHL app.

No Support For Spectrum

Doesn’t support one of the biggest cable companies on the planet.

Why isn’t Comcast Xfinity on the list????


Won’t work

Doesn’t work with Xfinity/Comcast and I pay for your channel.. add it to the list of providers please so I can use this app.

TV Provider

It says you have to be subscribed with your cable provider in order to watch this app. My cable provider offers NFL Network which I am subscribed to but for some reason this app says that Spectrum Cable doesn’t offer NFL Network therefore I’m unable to use this app. Extremely annoyed. Get this fixed please.

Can’t watch anything.

Have Charter cable, logged in and you can’t even pick what you want to watch. Highly disappointed. Will be deleting this app..

Nfl depend on cable too much

Cable cost too much and to allow us fans to depend on it to watch football games out of market is crazy. I know the NFL THINK THEY ARE BETTER THAN the NBA or MLB but there packages are outstanding I can buy single games team only or the entire league people love the nfl network and the red zone they both have there own app allow a monthly fee like CBS app give us an option to pay other than cable it will help fans like me.


Doesn’t work for xfinity subscribers


No Chromecast support. Waste of time.


Really? NFL you can’t make a better app than this? You’re app is stuck in 2010. Godell needs to suspend some of these app developers.

Bad info

It says if you don't see your cable provider, that company does not carry NFL Network or RedZone. Not true. I subscribe to Comcast and pay for both channels, but Comcast is not on the list, which means this is useless to a majority of cable customers.

Would have rated lower but option of zero not available

Useless app .

Doesn’t have xfinity

Pls add xfinity

Such a joke

It’s telling me I’m not subscribed to the channel when I log in through Verizon Fios. I’m literally watching the channel through Fios while this is happening. Don’t waste your time!

Where is Xfinity?


User Not Authorized Error

I continue to sign into my DirecTV account from the app. I get about 2 seconds of play time and then it gives me a "user not authorized" message. I have DirecTV. I have NFL Network. I should absolutely be authorized. This error happens on multiple devices. Worthless app.

No airplay or Chromecast

What’s the point of having a video app for iPad and handicapping it to disable airplay and Chromecast?

NFL Network

The NFL Network application provides easy to view access to the sports channel with the ability to log in via your cable provider and proceed to watching either the main NFL Network or Red Zone programming. The app is easy to use when watching a program as you can enlarge for a full screen or keep a small screen. Users can also view the complete schedule for that day and the upcoming days. The app is pretty bare bones and could use some enhancement such as push notification options for programs a viewer may want to see and maybe a section for NFL programs that aired during the week that you missed but want to watch at the moment. The NFL Network is a good start with the ball at the 20 but has a long way to go in scoring a touchdown for the users.

No provider/network

Still don’t have my provider it’s been a whole year my service is Comcast/Xfinity

Worst app in app history


Total crap

NFL should be absolutely ashamed for releasing such garbage. Enter my tv provider info and the screen goes blank.

iOS version working fine for me

Not really sure what all of the bad reviews are about. With just a few exceptions, the app has worked well for me. I watch regular NFL channel at breakfast during the week and RedZone for lunch on Sundays all on an old iPad.

What the hell?

I couldn't sign on because it (then NFL Now) wouldn't recognize my password. So I deleted the app and then download this new version. My cable provider wasn't among the providers. My cable is Comcast, the largest cable provider in the country. I'm looking at Red Zone right now. So what gives. Fix it Roger or else!!!

No xfinity

Garbage app. What's the point of paying for this service if I can't use the app?

Worst update ever

This APP used to work fine then they made it "new and improved." It is anything but. It constantly stops working, and refuses to acknowledge that you have the rights to accesses it. It is worthless. In fact, instead of watching Thursday night football I am writing a review about how this APP doesn't allow me to do that. I'm about to give up on NFL network all together despite how much I love the Red Zone. This APP gets one star because they won't let me give it zero.


Deleting this app due to the kneeling trash that is the nfl now!

Would give 0 if i could

I recently got spectrum tv with nfl redzone nfl network. I tried logging in and received a message stating former time warner cable subscribers cannot get access yet. I live in a former twc area however my subscription is with spectrum. Please fix so i can get my moneys worth.

Doesn't even load

Specs say it's for iOs 7 or greater, but it won't even load on my 7.1.1 iPad. Last version worked fine but I was forced to do this update, and now I'm dead in the water. Thanks for nothing!!


There is no way a billion dollar company should put a product like this. There is no way you can watch a game or show it will play for 30 seconds and buff for 2 minuets. This is unacceptable I hope you continue to loose money instead of padding the owners pockets

Doesn’t work

Can’t get any video whatsoever.

Needs update

Apps not working can’t get any games

To many crashes

To many crashes just like the inmates taking a knee

Constantly freezes

This app is great when it works, sadly that is rare. You may get 5-10 seconds before it freezes on you. Terrible app needs serious updates.

App keeps crashing

Open the app and it crashes, it's been doing this for a month. I hope they can fix it so I can enjoy Thursdays games at work.

App is not working

What’s wrong with this APP? Is it not compatible with the new iOS 11 update? It used to work fine, not it won’t load properly.

Won’t work!

Now for three weeks my app will not work at all, especially on Sunday. It does not make any sense because it used too. I used to delete the app and re download the app and then it worked fine. Now... nothing. It is now. 8:16 pm on sun 10/22 and the app is still down. It’s not my WiFi either. All my other apps work. Get with it nfl geeks and make this right!

Complete Garbage

Video lags constantly even with my 150mbps connection. NFL has enough dough to put out a quality app but they don’t. If I had different way to watch red zone I would pay double just to avoid this pile of steaming horse crap.

Slow and choppy

Impossible to watch redzone

Updated and still doesn’t work

I downloaded the newest update and the NLF network app still doesn’t work. Cannot watch video content even after logging into my provider account. I just wanna watch some football news on my phone!! Come on NFL network! Get it together

Not Consistent

I have Verizon Fios NFL Network in my package. One week I can NFL Network next week it’s the Red Zone. I don’t have Red Zone in my package. I would like NFL Network to work all the time not sometimes.

Never works when you want to watch

This app needs major fixing. It is hit and miss. You never know if you will be able to use it.

What happened

Work fine until the latest update. Frustrating.

Picture in picture stopped working

I hope this can be fixed. It just started after iOS 11 update

Not living up to potential

The app needs a UI overhaul at this point, the current is barely stable with glitches and bugs in abundance. At the very least the developers could upgrade the video player with the iOS 11 toolkit made available to them. But until they decide to care, the WatchESPN app will continue to beat this one even with its own subpar performance.
