For less than $20 you can watch NFL preseason games live including all the 2014 NFL preseason. We’ll show you how to watch NFL preseason games live on the iPhone and iPad and what you need to know about this subscription service.
The only real restriction to watching the NFL preseason games live is that games shown on your local TV stations are blacked out on the NFL Preseason App.
Verizon users can also watch NFL preseason games using the NFL Mobile app for Verizon, and if you are on the right plan you can watch without paying any extra fees. Even if you pay a lot for NFL Sunday Ticket on DirecTV you cannot use that app or channel to watch NFL preseason games live for your favorite teams.

NFL Preseason Live App
The NFL Preseason Live app is free to download, but to actually watch NFL Preseason games you will need a subscription. This is $19.99 for all the remaining NFL preseason games through September 14th, and it includes access on your tablet and on a computer.
You can use the NFL Preseason Live app on the iPad, but there is no iPhone app, so keep that in mind before you subscribe to this service. You cannot use this option during the full season.
The main appeal is that you can watch all the NFL Preseason games live, but there are other handy features. If you want to catch up on games you wan watch condensed versions of past games to see all the action in just 30 minutes. This is a perfect way to watch on a lunch break. You also get HD NFL preseason games going back to 2010.
You can also watch on a Mac or a PC and when you are watching at a computer you can see four games at once. AirPlay is not an option from the iPad.
You can watch on WiFi or LTE, but you will need a good connection and a large data plan if you watch many of these over LTE. You do not need a specific cable or satellite subscription, or a certain cell carrier.
If you want to check it out, you get one free 5 minute trial before subscribing, which allows you to watch part of an NFL Preseason game live before you decide to pay.
You can use the subscription on a Mac or PC and share it with your tablet, so one payment gets you access on either device.
NFL Mobile App
The NFL Mobile app for iPhone and iPad is another way you can watch NFL Preseason games live on your iPhone and iPad. You need a Verizon iPhone, iPad or Android to use this option. If you have a Verizon More Everything plan you get video streaming free instead of for $5 a month.
This doesn’t offer access to every game, but right now users can watch a previous game and the Thursday night NFL Preseason match up is on the schedule to start at 8PM.
Download the app and link it to your iPhone or iPad on Verizon to see if you qualify for free NFL Preseason streaming. This same app offers lots of NFL games live during the regular season as well.
