How to Watch the 2013 NFL Preseason Live on iPad & Android
Watch every 2013 NFL preseason game live on the iPad and Android tablets for just $20 as part of the special NFL Preseason Live app that delivers live streaming of NFL games in HD to the iPad and Android devices like the Nexus 7.
Users can watch their favorite NFL teams kick off the 2013 preseason even if they live states away and don’t have a cable subscription.
The 2013 NFL Preseason kicked off earlier this week, and resumes with multiple games on Thursday August 8th. The $20 NFL Preseason subscription carries through the entire preseason which ends on September 14th.
With a 2013 NFL Preseason Live subscription users can watch their favorite team on the iPad, iPad mini, Nexus 7 and other Android devices as well as on a computer. There is also a dual-view and quad-view feature to watch multiple games at once while on a computer. Users can watch at home and on the go.
One big disappointment for users is the lack of AirPlay mirroring in the 2013 NFL Preseason Live app, which means no using the Apple TV to watch games on the big screen. The app offered this in 2012, and made for a great way to watch Preseason games.
Users that can’t watch each of the 65 preseason games live can tune in to a DVR like area of the app to watch previously aired games. There is also access to the entire 2010, 2011 and 2012 preseason games. Users who are strapped for time can watch condensed versions of the games which is essentially a 30 minute highlight reel of preseason games.
Live games and DVR’d games are available in HD, so users can enjoy the same great viewing experience as on a TV.
While users can in theory watch any 2013 NFL Preseason game on the iPad or Android, there are still blackouts and restrictions. Any game broadcast on nationally on TV will not stream on the app and locally televised games will be blacked out for those users as well.
The NFL just updated the app for the new season, and users can purchase the $19.99 NFL Preseason 2013 subscription in app or on the NFL website.
Read our NFL Preseason Live Review from 2012 to see how we liked the app. Even though the 2013 NFL Preseason Live app removes Airplay support it looks like another winner, and a product we wish the NFL offered during the regular season.
The NFL Preseason Live 2013 app is tested on the iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4 and iPad mini as well as a collection of popular Android tablets, but should work on many Android tablets running Android 4.0 and above.
