Want to watch your favorite NFL teams on your Roku streaming device?
It’s certainly possible. All you’ll need is a stable internet connection, your Roku and the NFL Game Pass for the most current season.
Before, the NFL Game Pass was only available on mobile, Chromecast, Xbox platforms and Apple TV. But now, you can watch football via the new NFL channel on your Roku.
How To Watch NFL Game Pass On Your Roku Device
Step 1. Power up your Roku and open the Channel list.
Step 2. Search for the new NFL channel with the new logo, then click on the “Download” button.
Step 3. Allow the download to finish before opening the NFL channel. A sign in menu will appear. If you’ve already registered, enter your email address or user name and password to get inside your Game Pass subscription. If not, click on the “Register” or Sign Up and follow the on-screen instructions.
Step 4. You can now watch condensed games or full games as permitted by your Game Pass subscription. You can also head to the NFL Now section and view highlights, football team analyses and the latest news in the world of NFL.
About NFL Game Pass
NFL Game Pass is your ticket to watching Preseason games or any of the 265 regular season games. Follow your favorite team, or listen to live radio broadcasts on your Roku player. The football games are streamed to the Roku in HD quality. Users can also watch post-game or live recaps to quickly get in on the action.
What You’ll Need
An NFL Game Pass subscription
In order to start watching NFL football on your Roku device you’ll need to sign up for a subscription. The NFL Game Pass is priced per season, which means you pay a one-time fee to watch all the games for the entire year.
Subscribing can be done on your Roku. Download the NFL channel and create an account or sign in to access the games and the NFL film archive. There will be plenty of viewing options once you have the Game Pass on your streaming device.
A Stable Internet Connection
Game Pass streams games via the internet, and you’ll need to have a stable connection to fully enjoy the NFL experience. Take a look at the minimum internet bandwidth requirement to start watching HD NFL games online. Having to look at “Buffering” can be annoying and ruin the enjoyment that comes with watching sports.
There’s a free 7-day trial being offered by the NFL network if you wish to try it out before committing to a full subscription. The NFL channel on your Roku device is fully updated and is the same as the ones on your mobile phone, Xbox and Playstation console, Android TV or the Amazon Fire Stick. Watching the entire current season on your Roku device is a great way to experience NFL. Keep in mind that the NFL channel should be available on all Roku devices and models. Enjoy!
Faqs NFL Game Pass
How Can I Watch Football Games On Roku?
If you’re trying to get football games on your Roku TV, you are far from alone, and the great news is that you can stream various games, provided you have a schedule and the right setup with a provider. Depending on what game you want to watch, you may need a Prime subscription, FOX Sports, NFL Redzone, or something similar.
For example, if you want to watch Sunday Night Football, you need to use Peacock or NBC, as this option is exclusive and can’t be accessed through other providers.
How Do I Watch Game Pass On My TV?
Roku does not have a Game Pass option in the Channel Store, but if you’ve purchased a Game Pass on the NFL website, you can pair up the accounts and give yourself access to this pass on your TV. It’s usually a good idea to get the Pass fully set up before you try to link the two accounts.
As soon as your Game Pass is ready, you can navigate to Roku’s Channel Store, and then go into the News ; Notable category or click on Sports. Look for the channel called NFL and click on + Channel. You can also search for NFL if you can’t find it. Don’t click on the NFL Game Pass, as this won’t work.
Sign into your account if prompted, and then verify the account. You can go to www.nfl.com/activate/roku and this will give you a box to enter your code into (displayed on the Channel Store). Once that’s done, you should be able to watch.
Can You Cast NFL Game Pass To TV?
You cannot cast the NFL Game Pass to your TV, but you can do screen mirroring. If you’ve got the app on a smartphone or tablet, you can mirror that screen on your TV screen, and you should see the same content as appears on your phone.
This allows you to enjoy the content without having to squint at a tiny screen. You can also set up screen sharing if this is easier or more convenient for you. However, there is no other option for getting the NFL Game Pass onto your TV at present.
Can I Get NFL Game Pass On My Smart TV?
The Game Pass will work on certain smart TVs, including LG and Samsung’s smart TVs. However, you should make sure that your model is compatible before purchasing it.
You can get the NFL Game Pass by following these steps:
- Connect your smart TV to your Wi-Fi if it isn’t already connected.
- Click the Smart Hub button on your remote.
- Choose “Apps” and then type NFL into the search box that will appear.
- Select the NFL app and download it, and then leave it to finish installing.
- When the app has been installed, click “open” and go to the NFL Network Activation page to get the code.
- Enter the code, click Continue, and log in if necessary.
- Click on the content that you want to play – and that should be everything!
Can I Watch NFL Game Pass On A Roku Device?
No, NFL does not currently support Roku. Although NFL has increased the number of devices that it is compatible with, it doesn’t offer compatibility with Roku at this particular time. This may change in the future.
How Can I Watch Live Football On Roku For Free?
You are not likely to be able to watch live football on Roku for free – almost all live sports require you to have either a cable service, or a subscription to one of the many cable alternatives out there. Both of these things will cost money, but they are often necessary if you want to watch live games, rather than recorded options.
You can choose from any of the following:
- CBS Sports
- FOX Network
- NBC Sports
- Big Ten Network
However, Roku does offer a few live sports on its free Roku Channel, which includes beIN Sports Extra, Outside TV+, and Stadium. You may be able to find some live football on this channel, but it doesn’t specialize in it.
How Can I Stream All NFL Games?
The best way to ensure that you never miss an NFL game is to sign up for an NFL Game Pass. This pass offers every recorded moment to the subscribers, meaning that you can view live streams of all the 272 games on almost any device that you own.
This is much more straightforward and possibly cheaper than trying to figure out which subscription services you need to buy to ensure that you can watch all of the games, and not miss anything.
How Much Is NFL Ticket On Roku?
This depends on what package you want to buy, but as an example, you can purchase the NFL Preseason games, local games, and replays for $4.99 per month.
If you have a Roku that can handle the Sunday Ticket, this gives you access to a whole range of new features. It costs around $395.94 (for the max version), which will allow you to watch most of the content, although some international games are still excluded.
How Do I Cancel NFL Game Pass On Roku?
If you wish to disconnect your NFL Game Pass from your Roku TV, you can follow the steps below:

- Select NFL and then press the asterisk on your remote (the symbol that looks like this: *) and click on Manage Subscriptions when the menu pops up.
