    I'm a Green Bay Packers fan. I live in Phoenix, AZ. Simply put, what is the cheapest/easiest way to access out of market NFL games?

    I do not have any type of cable/satellite service. I have internet through Cox, an Apple TV, an XBox 360, MacBook Pro, and an iPhone 6. Between the internet connection and all of these devices there has to be some way to tune in these games?

    Edit: I was able to split an MLB.com account with someone and have been able to tune in Milwaukee Brewers games just fine. Does the NFL have a similar service?

    Friend's house isn't really an option as I'm new in town and don't have any other friends that are Packers fans. Also, there aren't a ton of bars in Phoenix, AZ that play Packers game. And even if they do, I'm not a fan of going to bars for games on Sundays (sounds crazy, I know).

    Yep, if no DirecTV, then a sports bar it is. Now what I did - passed one year contract for DirecTV, called and complained that my rates were too high, bargained for $20/month reduction and got NFL Sunday Ticket for free for the year. :)

    My son has an MLB deal for streaming games via the internet through his Apple TV. Surely the NFL offers something similar...

    I have the same thing and I was thinking that too, assuming the NFL had a similar streaming option - but I can't seem to find one.

    Apple would need to push the app to AppleTV devices for this to be an option. Maybe with the new Apple TVs with app store this will be an option.

    The past couple of years I've used sites like atdhe.to to watch sports events. They are free and am pretty sure legal. But you have to get used to removing popups.
