Get NFL Game Pass International and stream the NFL without blackouts

If you’re looking to catch every NFL game, but don’t have a U.S. cable subscription, NFL Game Pass is your best option.

You can access NFL Game Pass worldwide (outside the U.S. and Canada), but some games are blacked out in parts of Europe as well. Only users who sign up for Game Pass from select locations will have live-streaming access to every game, everywhere. Prices vary by region.

To access NFL Game Pass with a VPN:

  1. Get ExpressVPN.
  2. Connect to a non-U.S. location where all games are available. For assistance, contact ExpressVPN Support via live chat.
  3. Go to NFL Game Pass and sign up.
  4. Sit back and enjoy!

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 provides 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 regular-season 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.

Live stream the NFL Hall of Fame Game with a VPN

NBC and Peacock will also air the 2022 NFL Hall of Fame Game. Football fans can purchase a Peacock subscription for 5 USD/month or 50 USD/year, or stream NBC through a variety of cord-cutting apps.

  2. Connect to a server location in the U.S.
  3. Visit Peacock and sign up, or stream NBC through your preferred cord-cutting service.
  4. Sign in and enjoy the game!

More Game Pass Information

If you’re looking for more information before committing to a Game Pass subscription, here are some answers to some of the questions you may have:

Is NFL Game Pass UK the same as 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 South American locations tend to offer the lowest prices, which can get as low as 75 USD for the season. 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.

NFL schedule 2022

The 2022-23 NFL season will officially kick off on Thursday, September 8 at 8:20 p.m. when the Buffalo Bills visit the reigning Super Bowl champs, the Los Angeles Rams. To see the full NFL schedule for 2022 and find out when your team is playing, visit Note that preseason games will kick off with the annual Hall of Fame game (Raiders vs. Jaguars) on August 4, with the full preseason schedule running from August 11-28.

Who will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2022?

The 2022 Hall of Fame class includes six former players and two contributors. The eight-man group consists of:

LeRoy Butler, safety: The Green Bay Packers drafted Butler with the 48th overall pick in 1990, and the Florida State product never played for another team. Butler earned four first-team All-Pro selections, including during the Packers’ championship season in 1996, and became the first player in league history to record 20 sacks and 20 interceptions. However, he is perhaps best known for inventing the Lambeau Leap, the Packers’ beloved touchdown celebration.

Sam Mills, linebacker: After brief stints in the NFL and Canadian Football League, Mills rose to prominence in the United States Football League during the mid-1980s. After returning to the NFL in 1986, the Montclair State (N.J.) product grew into an All-Pro linebacker and five-time Pro Bowler for the New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers]. Sadly, Mills died of cancer in April 2005, only weeks before turning 46.

Richard Seymour, defensive tackle: The sixth overall pick in 2001, Seymour quickly became a pivotal contributor for Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots. An All-SEC standout at Georgia, Seymour won three Super Bowl rings with the Patriots and tallied 57.5 sacks across 12 NFL seasons.

Art McNally, contributor: McNally, who turned 97 in July, served as the NFL’s director of officiating from 1968 to 1991. He is the first official to enter the Pro Football Hall of Fame. 

Tony Boselli, offensive tackle: Although Boselli only played seven seasons, few offensive linemen were better during his peak. The Jaguars legend earned three first-team All-Pro selections (1997-99) and made the Pro Bowl every year from 1996 through 2000.

Bryant Young, defensive tackle/defensive end: Although Young only made four Pro Bowls and earned first-team All-Pro honors just once, he was an imposing defensive lineman in his prime for the San Francisco 49ers. The Notre Dame product recorded 89.5 sacks and won the Super Bowl as a rookie in 1994.

Cliff Branch, wide receiver: Older Raiders fans have great memories of Branch, who recorded 501 catches, 8,685 yards, and 67 touchdowns across 14 seasons for the Silver and Black. The four-time Pro Bowler added another 73 catches, 1,289 yards, and five touchdowns in 22 playoff games and won three Super Bowls along the way. Branch died of natural causes at age 71 in August 2019.

Dick Vermeil, coach: Vermeil’s career 120-109 regular-season record might not seem like much at first, but he only needed one special season to earn his Hall of Fame bust. In addition to head coaching stints with the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs, Vermeil put together “The Greatest Show on Turf” and led the then-St. Louis Rams to a 13-3 finish and a Super Bowl victory during the 1999-2000 season.

2022 NFL preseason storylines

From veteran quarterbacks in new places to potential superstar rookies, there are no shortage of intriguing storylines this preseason. Here’s what we’re keeping an eye on throughout the summer.

Enter the Jets? Although the New York Jets own the NFL’s longest postseason drought, Gang Green appears ready to change its fortunes after a decade-plus of misery. New York upgraded its offense during the offseason, signing guard Laken Tomlinson and drafting Ohio State receiver Garrett Wilson. Rookie defensive lineman Jermaine Johnson II and cornerback Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner each arrived with fanfare. Don’t look now, but the Jets might not be a laughingstock much longer.

Free agent watch: Training camp began with numerous high-profile free agents still waiting to ink a new contract. Keep an eye on ex-Los Angeles Rams receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who is recovering from a torn ACL sustained in February’s Super Bowl victory, and former Seattle Seahawks offensive tackle Duane Brown, each of whom can still contribute to contenders. Cam Newton, who spent last season with the Carolina Panthers, is arguably the top remaining free-agent quarterback.

Old faces, new places: The quarterback carousel proved extremely busy throughout the NFL offseason. Former Houston Texans star Deshaun Watson is now on the Cleveland Browns, who subsequently traded former No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield to the Carolina Panthers in July. Seattle Seahawks legend Russell Wilson will continue his career with the Denver Broncos. After missing the playoffs in 2021, the Indianapolis Colts and Washington Commanders will try to get the most out of Matt Ryan and Carson Wentz, respectively. 

Trey Lance’s time is here: The San Francisco 49ers appear ready to move on from veteran quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who came minutes shy of winning the Super Bowl in February 2020. As Jimmy G prepares for a potential trade, head coach Kyle Shanahan will turn to Trey Lance, the third overall pick in 2021 who totaled six touchdowns (five passing, one rushing) in six games and two starts last year.

Young Jaguars: After the Urban Meyer experiment failed disastrously, the Jaguars hired former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson to accelerate the newest rebuild. The Super Bowl LII-winning coach at least has a talented young core in young quarterback Trevor Lawrence, pass-rusher Josh Allen, and defensive lineman Travon Walker, who went first overall in April’s NFL Draft.

Watch Hard Knocks: The Detroit Lions on HBO Max

Hard Knocks, HBO’s hit show about life in an NFL training camp, is back for its 17th season. After spending last summer with the Dallas Cowboys, HBO is headed to Michigan for a few weeks with head coach Dan Campbell, former Pro Bowl quarterback Jared Goff, and the Detroit Lions, including the inevitable long-shot rookies. The Lions are looking to reach the playoffs for the first time since 2016. 

This season of Hard Knocks premieres at 10 p.m. ET on August 9, 2022. New episodes will air each Tuesday through September 5.

Other professional football leagues

As football fans wait for the 2022 NFL season to begin, there are still plenty of ways they can get their gridiron fix. Here’s our guide on which professional football leagues you need to try watching this summer.

Canadian Football League

What to know: Until the NFL returns, the CFL is your best bet for legitimate professional football. The 2022 Canadian campaign began in June and will run through November 20, when two teams will battle it out for the 109th Grey Cup. Dallas Cowboys fans will recognize BC Lions receiver Lucky Whitehead, who has carved out a solid career up North.

Our favorite way to watch with a VPN: All CFL games air in the U.S. on ESPN networks, though some are exclusive to ESPN+, which costs 7 USD/month and comes with a seven-day free trial. ESPN+ is also available in a bundle with Disney+ and Hulu’s on-demand service for 14 USD/month.

Fan Controlled Football

What to know: Have you ever watched an NFL game and believed you’d call better plays? The Fan Controlled Football league offers such an opportunity. Fans vote on all offensive plays in real time and even decide the outcomes of instant-replay reviews. Ex-Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner, plays for the FCF Zappers.

Our favorite way to watch with a VPN: All FCF games air on the league’s official Twitch channel.


What to know: Back in the 1980s, future NFL stars Herschel Walker, Jim Kelly, and Steve Young starred in the United States Football League. The alternative league returned after a nearly 40-year hiatus this year, with some interesting updates. Although there are eight teams with assigned geographic locations, such as New Jersey and Houston, every team played in Birmingham, Alabama, during the regular season. However, the USFL postseason will occur in Canton, Ohio, home of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Rather than poach top college players from the NFL, the new-look USFL primarily features young players who might have briefly spent time in professional leagues, including The Spring League or the short-lived Alliance of American Football. However, there are some former notable NFLers, including Michigan Panthers quarterback Paxton Lynch, a former first-round pick of the Denver Broncos.

Our favorite way to watch with a VPN: Fox and NBC will each air games during the USFL postseason. Cord-cutting services such as Sling TV, Hulu + Live TV, and YouTube TV offer both local networks in select areas.
