NFL blackouts: International Game Pass vs. U.S. Game Pass

What’s the difference between watching NFL Game Pass in Germany, Australia, Canada, or the U.S.? NFL Game Pass is available both inside and outside the States. However, there are key differences every fan needs to know:

The U.S. NFL Game Pass does not offer live streaming of regular-season or postseason games. It offers streams of out-of-market preseason games, on-demand replays of every regular-season game, and the NFL Films archive. There are no blackouts of regular-season games (because none are shown live at all). A seven-day free trial is available.

In most other markets, such as Mexico and most EU countries, the international NFL Game Pass offers all 256 games plus the NFL Playoffs and Super Bowl. Users trying to watch the NFL in the UK or Ireland are subject to blackouts on some games, and for viewers who want to stream the NFL in Canada, Game Pass is available exclusively through DAZN.

Most international Game Pass subscribers get access to NFL RedZone, the NFL Network, and all NFL Films programming. There’s a seven-day free trial available.

Is NFL Game Pass UK the same as the international Game Pass?

In a word, no. Regional broadcasting rights in the UK and the Republic of Ireland mean certain games are subject to blackout restrictions.

This applies even if a subscriber from the UK or Ireland is in another part of the EU. Existing EU Portability Regulations require UK and Ireland blackout restrictions to apply no matter where in the EU the subscriber is.

Can I watch NFL Game Pass in Europe?

EU viewers who subscribe to NFL Game Pass from most locations other than the UK or Ireland should have access to all games live, although limited blackouts may apply if such users try to watch from the UK or Ireland.

Where is the cheapest location to get NFL international Game Pass?

NFL international Game Pass prices vary from region to region, but locations in Asia Pacific tend to offer the lowest prices. For information about specific countries, contact ExpressVPN Support.

Subscription refunds are valid up to seven days from the purchase date. Free trial refunds are valid up to three days after the trial ends. More details can be found on the NFL Digital Care site.

Which devices can I watch NFL international Game Pass on?

NFL Game Pass works on the following devices. To set up ExpressVPN on your device, follow the corresponding link below:

What’s the difference between NFL Game Pass and NFL Sunday Ticket?

NFL Game Pass is the NFL’s streaming service. It is different from NFL Sunday Ticket, which is exclusive to AT&T TV Now.

NFL Game Pass comes in two flavors. The domestic Game Pass only shows out-of-market preseason games, regular-season game replays, and the full range of NFL Films. The international Game Pass shows every live regular season and playoff game, including the Super Bowl. Read more about the nuances of NFL Game Pass.

NFL Sunday Ticket is only available to U.S. residents with a valid service address. Sunday Ticket shows out-of-market games only and excludes select international games. In particular, games broadcast by your local Fox or CBS affiliate will not be available for streaming.

NFL Sunday Ticket starts at 35 USD/month, or 210 USD/season. If you live in the U.S. and don’t mind missing a portion of the games, NFL Sunday Ticket might be worth considering. The international version of NFL Game Pass costs at least 125 USD/season but gives you access to every game and a wide range of extras.

2020-21 NFL award winner prediction

Who’s going to have a season to remember? The ExpressVPN team takes a look into the crystal ball:

Most Valuable Player: Lamar Jackson (QB, Kansas City Chiefs)

Offensive Player of the Year: Patrick Mahomes II (QB, Kansas City Chiefs)

Defensive Player of the Year: Joey Bosa (DT, Los Angeles Chargers)

Offensive Rookie of the Year: Joe Burrow (QB, Cincinnati Bengals)

Defensive Rookie of the Year: Patrick Surtain II (CB, New York Giants)

Comeback Player of the Year: Le’Veon Bell (RB, New York Jets)

Coach of the Year: Kyle Shanahan (San Francisco 49ers)

Who’s making Super Bowl LV?

What a season it’s been. The Kansas City Chiefs rode an unstoppable offense to Super Bowl glory, overcoming the San Francisco 49ers and heralding the dawn of a new football dynasty. Expect both of these teams to be deep in the playoffs next January, as Patrick Mahomes authors the next chapter a legendary career.

With the New England Patriots and Tom Brady facing an uncertain future, the Baltimore Ravens look the next likeliest contender to the Chiefs and 49ers. 2019 MVP Lamar Jackson had the league at his feet as the Ravens introduced a deadly option-based offense. Expect Jackson and the Ravens to be even better this year, which can only be bad news for every other team.

  1. Hi,
    I am living in the Detroit Area, have PS Vue and want to watch every Packers game.
    Is it possible via ExpressVPN e.g. via a virtual server that is located in Wisconsin?
    Thanks a lot.
    Mike

    1. Hi Mike,

      You will need to connect to a server location where Packers games aren’t blacked out. In the past, connecting to the nearest non-Wisconsin location has delivered the best results.

  2. If I purchase NFL Game pass with a US address CC will it let me access the International version?
    Everyone says get the International version,,,,,it doesn’t matter what your Bank / CC billing address is ?

  3. Hi, I want to purchase the game pass essential from Spain. Can I watch the Game in 40 min of all games? Including the Game in 40 min of the playoffs? Thanks.

  4. I have expressvpn. I connected to Thailand and went to gamepass and started a trail for their top tier package. But whenever i go to watch the videos it just sits ad loading with the dots.

    I’ve cleared my browser cookies and histrory, I’ve downloaded the browser extension, I tried both chrome and firefox, i updated flash…but still no go….Can you help me figure this out?

    1. Hi Kevin,

      If you’re on Windows, please try watching on Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge. If you’re on Mac, please try watching on Safari.

  5. hello, please help, i live in PA and i would like to watch my favorite team the atlanta falcons all year long including pre-season games. The only games that ever show in my area are the dam eagles and giants, what do i need to do to watch my falcons live??

    1. Hi Brent,

      Try watching through the international version of NFL Game Pass. Simply connect to a non-U.S. location (you can get further advice by contacting Support: https://www.expressvpn.com/support/#open-chat) and purchase the Game Pass. This will give you access to every Falcons game, including the preseason and postseason, all the way up to the Super Bowl.

      How are you feeling about the season? We’re expecting a bounce-back campaign for Atlanta after last year!

        1. Hi Nicki,

          From the ExpressVPN app, click on the bar that indicates your current location. You can then select a non-U.S. location to connect to.

  6. I just moved from NY to Florida and want to stream and watch my NY Jets football games on my tv not a mobile device. I do not want to get satelite service just to get nfl sunday ticket. Do you have a solution that will work for me that is not too complicated? i have very good internet speeds
    Thanks

  7. Hello, I was bombed by NFL Game Pass that I can no longer get Game Pass in 2019 from Panama Central America where I live. I cover the Miami Dolphins for a living, so this puts me in a bind. I used the coaches cam on Game Pass regularly, so getting access to it , and the games is paramount to me smiling again. How can I get my former access back through your VPN? Just purchase, download, and then resign up for Game Pass? Thanks in advance.

    1. Hi Michael,

      Please try connecting to a U.S. server location and logging into your account. Domestic versions of NFL Game Pass include the All-22 Coaches Film. This feature may not be available to certain versions of the international Game Pass.

  8. I live in Williamsburg, VA. I have Direct TV. I want to see the Atlanta Falcons (in real time) but I am blocked except for regularly scheduled nationally televised games, how can I get around this block?

    1. Hi Susan,

      If you’re watching in a web browser, please first connect to the VPN and make sure you have the ExpressVPN browser extension (https://www.expressvpn.com/support/vpn-setup/expressvpn-browser-extension/) activated. If you’re watching on a mobile device, please make sure you’re connected to the VPN and allow location access if prompted.

      For further assistance, please contact the Support team at https://www.expressvpn.com/support/#open-chat

  9. I am going to be in Acapulco during the Chiefs playoff game. I have the NFL game day pass but have not had any luck making it work in the past. What do I need to do to see this game?

    1. Hi Luke,

      Did you purchase the U.S. Game Pass or the international Game Pass?

      If you’re using the international Game Pass, you should have no problem watching the games. Please try connecting to a non-U.S. VPN location before watching one of the games.

      If you bought the U.S. Game Pass, you won’t be able to watch any of the games live. However, you can use Sling or any of the other services mentioned above. They all come with a free trial.

  10. Youtube will allow three changes of address then you just erase your account and sign in again and you will get three more address changes This is the way I received the NFL this year. I now better ways now! thanks for the ideas

  11. My husband is an avid Steelers fan. We live in Virginia so are subjected to plenty of blackouts on the season games. We have a full cable package on Comcast so are not limited by that source. We don’t have a smart TV but do have Samsung S9 phones on Verizon. What is our best option to see the games live?

  12. I have now become a little confused. I am in NJ and only want to watch the Packers’ games. How hard is it to / how do you / change-over to an in-market TV station for Wisconsin? THX in advance.

    1. Hi Ken,

      Which streaming method are you using? If you’re using the international version of NFL Game Pass, you will have access to all games and won’t face blackouts. If you’re using a domestic stream, try connecting to a non-Wisconsin location before you watch a game.

      For any further issues, please contact Support: https://www.expressvpn.com/support/#open-chat

      p.s. Go Pack Go! 😉

      1. Quick Question – Once I sign up for the International Game Pass, do I need to VPN everytime I want to use it? Or can i just use my login and get access?

        I would love to use the NFL APP on the Apple TV to navigate the games but not sure if I need to VPN in everytime in order to watch it.

  13. Just signed up for game pass via Germany server. Looks like I’m good to go with streaming live. Question: will I nerd to install expressvpn at the router level to use the NFL app on my Xbox one now that my international account is active? Like, will it black out a game if it knows my Xbox is stateside?

    1. Hi Zeke,

      For Game Pass, connect to a VPN location in Asia and then purchase/access the international Game Pass. If you only want to follow the Dolphins, you can select the „Follow Your Team” package and save some money. If you need guidance on which locations to use, please speak to Support: https://www.expressvpn.com/support/#open-chat

      Another option to check out is NFL Sunday Ticket. DirecTV offers NFL Sunday Ticket as a standalone product, but you’ll need to prove that your address doesn’t support DirecTV or that you live in a multi-unit residence (like an apartment).

      Hope that helps!

  14. Hello,

    I’m from Germany and would like to watch all of the NFL games. Can I access the Gamepass with all of the live games from Germany?

    Thanks,
    Robert

  15. Want to watch the Washington Redskins from Florida, however, it is out-of-market . I downloaded ExpressVPN. Since it’s out-of-market, I have to select a Location that is not in the US, correct? I selected Canada based on the speed test. Is that correct? Now, what is the next step? Thank you.

    1. Hi Celeste,

      Which streaming package are you using? Please try connecting to a location where Redskins games are part of the in-market coverage e.g. the Washington DC locations.

    1. Hi Brooke,

      Outside of DAZN, you can watch the games for free on mobile by downloading the NFL Mobile app or the Yahoo Sports app. Be sure to connect to a U.S. location before watching.

      Otherwise, you can connect to an overseas location to purchase the international game pass. Good locations to try are Australia, Hong Kong, and Malaysia.

  16. Why is it necessary to use the Browser extension when watching a game? I have been using Express VPN without the Browser extension on my computer for some time now, am I exposing my location by doing so??

    1. Hi Jimmy,

      Some content and stream providers have started to block content based on the geolocation of users. The ExpressVPN browser extension prevents your browser from revealing your location and can help you access streams with privacy, no matter where you are.

      Using the browser extension is not necessary for many sites, but for others, this will ensure an interruption-free streaming experience.

  17. I recently purchased NFL Game Pass, to watch the Kansas City Chiefs games while overseas. I didn’t realize the restrictions on watching overseas, so I just bought ExpressVPN, hoping that I can make it look like I’m still in the US. However, when I try to access the games, I am still having issues. In theory, should I be able to use ExpressVPN to watch the games outside of the US? If so, do you know what might be going wrong?

    1. Hi Garrett,

      Which device are you trying to watch the games on? If you’re trying to watch on Windows or Mac, make sure you’re connected to the VPN and are using the ExpressVPN browser extension. If you’re on mobile, make sure you’re connected to the VPN and try to disable location sharing.

      If you have further issues, please contact Support at https://www.expressvpn.com/support/#open-chat

    1. Hi Steve,

      To watch in the UK, try watching the games via the NFL app or the Yahoo Sports app. Remember to connect to a location in the U.S. before downloading the apps and make sure you’re still connected when watching the games.

    1. Hi Allie,

      You can try watching the games using the Verizon or Yahoo Sports apps. Due to in-market restrictions, make sure you’re connected to a VPN location that’s showing the game or the nearest available location.

      1. I am also going to try this. I connected to a local VPN, but the yahoo sports app still says the game is not available in my location. Does that have to do with my phone GPS? Or is it because the game doesn’t start until tomorrow?

        1. Hi Brian,

          For best results, please try turning off your mobile location. You may also want to try connecting to a server location that’s closer to the game broadcast.

        2. I have trying to figure out how to watch the Colts for the past 2 years I have lived in Montana. The only teams that they ever play here are Seattle, Denver, Green Bay, Minnesota, and the nationally televised games. I’ve only gotten to watch 2 Colts games live in 2 years and one of the times I was actually in Texas. I’ve tried the VPN on my phone, Xbox one, laptop, and Roku Smart TV. All trying to use the NFL app. And I’ve also tried free trials of Sling, Fubo, YouTube, and just about anything else on all my devices and even being connected to the VPN it still only offers me the same teams/games. What would you recommend I try? And what location would be best for me to try and connect to? Thanks

          1. Is there a way to do it without using international game pass? I really just want to watch one team so I don’t want to pay that much when I could possibly do it with a cheaper subscription.

  18. I want to watch all NFL games via from my laptop or phone while I’m at work. If I purchase one of the 3 packages this will allow me to watch any and all NFL games? I especially only want to watch my Eagles. Please help!! Ty

    1. Hi Jade,

      It depends on where you are. Verizon (via the NFL Mobile and Yahoo Sports apps) offers free streams, but you’ll need to check if the Eagles are an in-market game for where you are. Otherwise, you can sign up for any of the other paid packages, just be sure to cancel before the free trial ends and catch any other games you’re missing on Twitch (for free!)

  19. I want to watch NFL on my Vizio Smart TV and have a Roku player but no cable subscription. Will the purchase of the VPN allow me to use DAZN to stream the games to my TV?

  20. So, are you saying that even with an ExpressVPN account, I will need to have a cable subscription in order to live stream any and all of the events I wish to watch?

    1. Hi Billy,

      Not necessarily. This past season, Yahoo Sports offered free streams for the playoffs. Amazon offered free Thursday Night Football, while services like Sling TV showed regular season games and come with a free trial. With a VPN, a cable subscription is nice but not necessary 🙂

  21. I’m from Philadelphia, but will be in Israel for the Superbowl. The hotel that I’m staying at says that they don’t have Fox Sports, so I need to live stream the event to my devices–my iPhone 7 plus and my pad, which is an Android. For the latter, I was going to use ExpressVPN and YouTube TV, which is what you were saying a few days ago. But now you are saying to download TV player and have a TV license. Do I really need a licence? How do I get one? If I have to download TV Player, do I have to select a UK server thru ExpressVPN? Will the option that you were originally suggesting NOT work, i.e., ExpressVPN, selecting a US server, and using YouTube TV?

    As a back-up, I was going to use ExpressVPN on my cell phone, select a US server, and download the Yahoo Sports app. Will that work?

    Please advise on both matters. Thanks!
