    Default NFL Mobile App Updated with Several Features Including the Ability to Watch Live Games


    We’re just one month away from Football season and the NFL has decided to completely rebuild its NFL Mobile app for iOS and Android. Version 8.0 of the app gives football fans quick access to certain information that many would be glad to utilize such as breaking news, scores and video highlights. As part of the update, the NFL has layered in functionality from its Verizon-made app, which gives Verizon subscribers the ability to pay for premium features such as live streaming NFL games on Thursday, Sunday and Monday nights along with NFL RedZone on Sundays.


    Those of you interested in learning more about what the update has to offer can do so by reading the change log below:

    • SCORES – Receive up-to-the minute NFL game score updates from around the league
    • CUSTOM TEAM ALERTS – Follow your favorite team and get customized alerts – including injury updates, highlights, game start times, entry into the red zone, and scoring plays
    • FANTASY FOOTBALL– Follow your NFL.com fantasy team directly in the app
    • VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS – Watch highlights after the game
    • PREMIUM FEATURES – Verizon customers can upgrade to Premium Features to gain access to live streams of NFL RedZone on Sunday afternoons, LIVE NFL games on Thursday, Sunday and Monday Nights, and NFL Network 24/7.

    • … AND MORE! – Check team standings, stats, rosters and schedules, browse the NFL.com shop, find game tickets, or read expert analysis wherever you are

    What’s New in Version 8.0

    VIDEO ON DEMAND – Expanded video content and game highlights let you see more of the action.
    FOLLOW YOUR FAVORITE TEAM – Custom alerts from your favorite team updates you on highlights, game start time, injuries, entry into the red zone, and scoring plays.

    SCORES AND STATS – Updated player and team scores and statistics for the 2013-14 season.

    SessionM – mPOINTS were removed but can be redeemed via other SessionM applications. Visit Get mPOINTS | mPOINTS for more information.
    Those of you who are interested in using the app can download it for free from the App Store.

    So you have to be a Verizon customer to be able to watch the games. That sucks.

    And I can't open the app since I'm jailbroken. I need to find a workaround soon. I have 4 weeks.

    More specifically a Verizon Wireless customer from what I can tell. I am a Verizon FIOS customer but I can't use those login credentials to access the live games like on other apps such as HBO Go.

    The big news is that they've disabled the app for jailbroken devices.

    How, on a site all about jailbreaking iPhones, was this not even mentioned in the story is beyond me.

    Tsprotector p is a cydia tweak. Costs 1.39 but will allow nfl mobile to work. Just dont allow nfl mobile to access system files

    Not likely since VZW is the primary sponsor for the app.

    The newest beta version of xCon will bypass the jailbreak detection. Get it here:

    This needs to be added to the original story.

    I can also confirm this bypasses the jailbreak check but does video playback work for you?

    I've signed in with my verizon credentials but all video links gives a "sorry the video playback has failed please try again later....." message. I'm wondering if this is on their end or another jb prevention added to the app.
