    Very interested in this. Does this mean we can watch any NFL game without a cable package?

    Yeah, this intrigued me the most as well. Also, is this a feature of the new TV OS and will work on the current generation TV as well? I'm not replacing all of my Apple TVs with the 4K versions. Not with $1,000 earmarked for a new phone. Grief.

    I doubt it will be like the NFL Sunday ticket

    No, that's not what it means. The TV app will simply show you what is currently playing live in the ESPN app, or any other app that supports it.

    I'm interested in if the Live TV app will support 4k. Would be very interested if the NBA or NFL offer 4k on their apps. Or hell, HBO. I really want more 4k content, and am thinking this is an easier way to implement than waiting on cable companies or satellite companies.

    The reason the NFL doesn't have a streaming setup on Apple TV is because NFL streaming is only to Verizon customers!

    Im surprised NFL hasn't dipped into 4K yet, the NHL took it for a test run last season and from my understanding going to improve on it this season. Now hopefully NHL will bring 4K to centre ice streaming

    I'm not sure what you mean by that. I streamed NFL games in the Fox Sports Go, NBC Sports and ESPN apps this weekend. If I subscribed to CBS All Access I also could have streamed those games as well. If I wanted to pay the horribly inflated price I could also subscribe to NFL Sunday Ticket and stream all out of market Sunday games.

    I am pretty sure Verizon has an exclusive for streaming NFL games to mobile devices (i.e. phones and tablets). I don't think the AppleTV is considered a mobile device.

    That is correct, and would make more sense if @satcomer was referring specifically to streaming to mobile devices.

    Nope. You need a login for any app you wish to stream from.

    That's not correct. You can use the NFL app on ATV and buy the Sunday Ticket and see any game that you want.

    I also watch games on ESPN, Fox, CBS, and NBC through their respective apps and/or Sling TV.
