On March 18th, 2020, both the NBA and NFL announced that they will be offering the NBA League Pass and NFL Game Pass streaming services completely free for at least the next month. This, in an effort to let fans everywhere who are missing sports, which is usually an outlet from daily life struggles, a chance to enjoy reruns during the Coronavirus pandemic.
People everywhere are locked down, being told to stay home, or are just practicing social distancing. With all major events and seasons canceled or delayed, luckily you can watch some of your favorite sports for free using the information below.
The NFL Game Pass offers tons of content for 10+ years of games, all of Tom Brady’s Super Bowl wins, NFL Network, NFL shows, live interviews, coaching film and more. It’s a popular option that usually costs $99 per season.
You get something similar from the NBA League Pass, which is $129 per season. And while there are no live games on right now, fans will get access to huge libraries of content to keep them entertained. All of this is temporarily free during this worldwide pandemic.
“NFL Game Pass will be offered free of charge until May 31 to fans within the U.S., and starting Thursday until July 31 to fans outside the U.S. and Canada” — NFL.com
To get access to either of these services all you need to do is download the apps, sign in (or create an account) and you’re all set. There are no trials or subscription payments required of any kind.
