Welcome back to the gridiron for what should be a thrilling 2023 NFL season. Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs enter the new year as favorites to defend their Super Bowl title, although they’re expected to face stiff competition from Josh Allen’s Buffalo Bills and Joe Burrow’s Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC. Over in the NFC, Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles are the favorites to win a mediocre conference for the second straight year, though the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys should keep things interesting.
Rookies to watch include new Carolina Panthers quarterback Bryce Young, Houston Texans teammates CJ Stroud and Will Anderson (selected second and third overall), Indianapolis Colts dual-threat signal-caller Anthony Richardson, and Atlanta Falcons running back Bijan Robinson, who has the potential to carve through defenses as a rusher and receiver.
The 2023 NFL preseason officially began Thursday, August 3, when the Cleveland Browns and New York Jets clashed in the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game. The regular season started Thursday, September 7, when Jared Goff and the Detroit Lions defeated Mahomes and the Chiefs.

Watch NFL Game Pass live streams on DAZN with a VPN
If you’re looking to watch out-of-market NFL games, or don’t have a U.S. cable subscription, NFL Game Pass International is another great option, as it offers live streams of every NFL game without blackouts. NFL Game Pass moved to DAZN for the 2023 season.
An NFL Game Pass subscription includes every game from the preseason through the Super Bowl, along with highlights, NFL RedZone, the NFL Network, and plenty of other NFL content. DAZN is compatible with a wide range of devices, including smartphones, tablets, computers, and TVs, allowing you to watch NFL games on the go or on your big screen.
Why is NFL Game Pass moving to DAZN?
The NFL and DAZN agreed to a 10-year distribution deal in February 2023. DAZN will offer NFL Game Pass International in 200 countries and regions except the U.S. and China. Domestically, YouTube TV took over the NFL Sunday Ticket rights from DirecTV.
How much is NFL Game Pass in my country?
The NFL Game Pass price varies depending on your country. For example, football fans in Germany need to pay roughly 175 EUR (188 USD) for the entire season. Just remember that your DAZN subscription will be locked to your specific region and cannot be changed to another country, even when traveling.
Is NFL Game Pass included with a DAZN subscription?
Football fans can purchase NFL Game Pass International either as a standalone option or by adding it to their current DAZN subscription.
NFL International Game Pass vs. NFL+
In 2022, the NFL discontinued U.S. Game Pass and introduced the NFL+ app. What’s the difference between watching NFL Game Pass International and NFL+ in the U.S.?
Price: 5-10 USD/month, or 40-80 USD/year
The NFL+ app offers NFL game live streams for a single team (within your home market) along with national primetime games. For example, a Jets fan living in New York City can watch games through NFL+ on the couch, in the back of a taxi, or while walking through Times Square. However, a Jets fan living in Minnesota is stuck watching the Vikings each week—unless, of course, the Jets are available in the Minnesota market either through a nationally-televised game or it being a regional game.
NFL+ is only available for live streams on mobile and tablet devices, and does not stream as reliably as Game Pass. It provides streams of out-of-market preseason games, live game audio (for all games, with all feeds), and the NFL Films archive, but if you want to stream NFL games on your TV without blackouts, Game Pass International is the way to go.
NFL Game Pass International
In most other markets, such as Mexico, Brazil, and most EU countries, the international NFL Game Pass offers all 272 regular-season games plus the NFL Playoffs and Super Bowl. 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.
More NFL Game Pass Information
Can I watch NFL Game Pass in Europe?
Yes! DAZN offers the international version of NFL Game Pass across Europe, including in the United Kingdom, Germany, and Spain.
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 81 USD for the 2023 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.
Which devices can I watch International NFL Game Pass on?
NFL Game Pass works on the following devices. To set up ExpressVPN on your device, follow the corresponding link below:

Stream the NFL on services with free trials
Price: 73 USD/month and up
Channels: ABC, CBS, ESPN, ESPN 2, Fox, NBC, and NFL Network
YouTube TV offers Americans a variety of channels that carry NFL games and the subscription costs 73 USD/month. You may need to submit a U.S. zip code (e.g., 10022, 48104, etc.), but it accepts a wide array of payment options. If you don’t feel like committing to YouTube TV, use the free trial.
Also note that the U.S. version of NFL Game Pass, NFL Sunday Ticket, moved to YouTube for the 2023 season. Plans start at 300 USD for the season.
Note: You may need a valid U.S. credit/debit card or PayPal to subscribe to YouTube TV. You can still subscribe to YouTube TV via Google Play, even if you don’t have a U.S. credit/debit card.

Price: 75 USD/month
Channels: ABC, CBS, ESPN, ESPN 2, Fox, NBC, and NFL Network
How about another way to catch NFL games? U.S. viewers can use the seven-day free trial on Fubo to watch all of your favorite NFL games live, including nationally-televised games on ABC, NBC, and ESPN. You can also watch NFL RedZone, which offers seven hours of commercial-free football every Sunday.
Note: You will need a U.S. credit/debit card to subscribe. The billing address used may determine which local channels are available, and you may be unable to change your location.
Price: 6 USD/month
Paramount Plus streams games that are broadcast on CBS, though U.S. subscribers must ensure your location matches the correct market. For example, fans in the New Orleans and Tennessee markets can watch the Saints-Titans game in Week 1 on either their local CBS affiliate or through Paramount Plus. However, a football fan living in Baltimore will instead get the Ravens-Texans game that day.
Paramount Plus is also expected to offer live streams of the Dallas Cowboys–Washington Commanders showdown on Thanksgiving Day, along with every NFL playoff game on CBS, including Super Bowl 58. If you don’t feel like committing to Paramount+ or only want to watch a specific game, there’s a seven-day free trial.
Price: 65 USD/month and up
Channels: ABC, CBS, ESPN, ESPN 2, Fox, and NBC
DirecTV Stream is often on the pricier side but it’s a great option for U.S. fans who prefer a cord-cutting service over an additional streaming app. DirecTV’s lowest package starts at 65 USD/month (before jumping to its normal price of 75 USD/month after three months), and the service offers a 5-day free trial.
Other ways to watch the NFL
Hulu + Live TV
Price: 70 USD/month and up
Channels: ABC, CBS, ESPN, Fox, and NBC
Hulu+Live TV is another way for American fans to catch live NFL games, although it doesn’t come with a free trial. Games shown are subject to regional availability and blackout restrictions. You may need to supply a valid U.S. postal code (e.g., 10012, 48104) and credit card.

Channels: ABC, ESPN, Fox, and NBC
Sling TV provides U.S. viewers with access to most channels airing NFL games except for CBS and Amazon (so it’s a better solution if you follow an NFC team). ABC is also available in select markets. Please note that Sling no longer offers a free trial.
Price: 20 CAD/month or 200 CAD/year
TSN airs select Sunday afternoon NFL games, along with Sunday Night Football, Monday Night Football, and Thursday Night Football in Canada. Note that Canadian subscribers will need a Canadian credit card to subscribe.

Stream Thursday Night Football on Prime Video
Price: 15 USD/month
Thursday Night Football returns to Amazon Prime Video for the 2023 season. Although most viewers will need to pay for Prime Video to watch every Thursday night game, fans in local markets will be able to watch the games without a Prime subscription. For example, an Eagles fan living in Philadelphia can watch the Eagles-Vikings showdown through a local affiliate (channel varies depending on the market) in Week 2. However, an Eagles fan living in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, would need to watch through Prime. All TNF games will air at 8:20 p.m. ET each week.
Note that Thursday night games in Week 1 (Kansas City Chiefs vs. Detroit Lions) and Week 12 (San Francisco 49ers vs. Seattle Seahawks, who will play on Thanksgiving) will air on NBC and Peacock. Instead, Prime Video will air a Black Friday showdown between the New York Jets and Miami Dolphins on Friday, November 24, for free.
Twitch.tv is expected to once again offer free Thursday Night Football streams for U.S. viewers throughout the 2023 season. Twitch also offers alternate broadcasts, including a Spanish-language simulcast.

Other professional football leagues
As football fans waited for the 2023 NFL season to begin, they still had plenty of ways to 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 2023 Canadian campaign began in June and will run through November 19, when two teams will battle it out for the 110th 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 10 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: The 2023 USFL regular season began Saturday, April 15, and ended Sunday, June 18. Congratulations to league MVP Alex McGough and the Birmingham Stallions for repeating as USFL champions! The Stallions routed the New Orleans Breakers, 28-12, in the title game.
Our favorite way to watch with a VPN: USFL games will stream across Fox, FS1, NBC, Peacock, and the USA Network in 2023. We suggest using YouTube TV’s free trial to catch every game!
What to know: After previous attempts in 2001 and 2020, the XFL returned for a third time. Dwayne Johnson now leads a league featuring several notable ex-NFLers, including former All-Pro wide receiver Josh Gordon and veteran backup quarterback AJ McCarron. The 2023 XFL season officially kicked off on Saturday, February 18, and finished Sunday, April 23. Congratulations to Luis Perez and the Arlington Renegades on their XFL championship! Perez and the 4-6 Renegades shocked the 9-1 DC Defenders to win it all.
Our favorite way to watch with a VPN: Every XFL game will air on ESPN+. Most XFL games will also air on FX, which is included in YouTube TV’s basic package.
FAQ for NFL live streams
Can I stream the NFL outside the United States?

Plus there’s the added bonus of no blackout games!

How can I stream football on my TV with a VPN?
In brief there are five different ways to stream sports on your TV with ExpressVPN:
-With the native app for a smart TV, Android TV device, or streaming device
-By streaming on your computer and connecting to the TV with an HDMI cable
-By mirroring or casting wirelessly to your TV or streaming device from your computer or mobile device
-By connecting to an ExpressVPN-enabled router, which allows for unlimited devices and makes it super simple to connect to different server locations simultaneously
-With MediaStreamer, ExpressVPN’s solution for devices that cannot install a VPN, such as Apple TV or gaming consoles. MediaStreamer only needs to be set up once, although it does not provide the full security benefits of a VPN. (Note that by connecting your Apple TV or gaming console to a router, you can get the best of both worlds!)

Does ExpressVPN come with an NFL Game Pass or NFL+ account?
No, you’ll still have to purchase a subscription or create a separate account. But, ExpressVPN ensures you can stream safely and at top speeds, without having to compromise your security or picture quality, and it works seamlessly with all the most popular streaming apps from around the world. Using a VPN for streaming ensures you watch securely in blazing-fast HD with unlimited bandwidth, free from ISP throttling (which can sometimes slow down speeds).
What’s the difference between watching NFL Game Pass International and NFL+ in the U.S.?
In international markets such as Mexico, Brazil, and most EU countries, NFL Game Pass International offers live streaming of all 256 regular-season games, plus the NFL Playoffs and Super Bowl, without any blackouts. On the other hand, the NFL+ app in the U.S. offers NFL game live streams for only a single team (within your home market), along with national primetime games. It is also only available for live streams on mobile and tablet devices.
I connected to the suggested VPN server location but I can’t log in to the streaming service!
No worries! Server load changes rapidly (especially when lots of people are trying to watch certain events), but that’s exactly why ExpressVPN has high-speed servers all over the world. If you’re trying to access a site in the U.S. or Germany, for instance, try connecting to a different server location in those countries.
If you’re trying to connect to a country with one server location, the first step is to check your location settings. If you’re on a mobile device, disconnect from the VPN, turn off location services, then connect to the VPN again. On both Windows and Mac computers, you can turn off Location Services within the Privacy & Security settings menu.

I connected to the VPN but my internet speed is slow
If your internet speed is slow or your streaming seems to lag, there are a few possible reasons:
-The distance of your selected VPN server location from your physical location
-Your connection type (wired connections are more reliable than wireless connections)
-Suboptimal interconnectivity between the VPN and your ISP
-Slow internet connection speed at your location
-Your device type and processing power
Try each of the following steps to troubleshoot:
-Download the latest version of ExpressVPN
-Connect to a different VPN server location
-Change your VPN protocol
If you try each of the above and are still experiencing issues with your streaming speed, contact the ExpressVPN Support Team 24/7 and someone will be with you in seconds.
What other streaming services can I watch with ExpressVPN?

If you want to watch your favorite team from anywhere—even while traveling or on unsecured networks like public Wi-Fi—ExpressVPN is a great way to enhance your sports streaming experience.
