    This has me confused. Is this new service going to be streaming all regular seasons games live, or VOD? The top says is On Demand, but the bottom says live, so which is it? If is live, is good thing for those who don't have DIRECTV®

    I can't tell anything other than playoff games won't be live. Very confusing product.

    For the first time ever, the National Football League (NFL) will offer its Game Pass service to U.S. users on the Apple TV with on-demand broadcasting of games, according to an update on the Game Pass micro-site Monday.

    Regular season, playoff and Super Bowl game broadcasts won’t be available as live streams but rather after they air on television. In addition, the organization will retire its existing Game Rewind service on July 31. Available to iOS, Android and Windows users in the United States, Game Rewind provides access to on-demand games after they air on television.


    The upcoming service will offer live streams of 65 pre-season and all 256 regular season games, in addition to 10 playoff games and Super Bowl 50 games after they air on TV.

    Seems pretty clear to me - if you want live OOM NFL games there will still only be one place to get them.

    Last year it was called "Game Rewind" and they had a separate deal for preseason games. It sounds like they're combining them. The live version is for over seas. I saw a price of $129 but I haven't seen any price for the U.S. version.

    Looks like it's $99 after 7-day free trial. They hide it well, however.

    You're right, it's like they don't care if anyone subscribes. Although they did advertise it quite a bit on the Steeler-Viking broadcast on Sunday night.
