    I was stuck in a friends shop getting some work done to my car and he didn't have a TV so I pulled up the NFL Mobile app on my phone and for a $3.00 daily pass, I was able to watch the Saints/Vikings game live on my phone! Thats a pretty cool app!!!

    Sad part is the app was free until the reg season started .....now $10 per month on top of the $30 for the data plan

    I was able to watch last nights game for $3... I didnt need a $30 data plan unless I already have it included with my plan. I thought about getting the $10 a month plan but then figured how many times am i gonna be in a position where I would miss a game...not many so I opted for the daily pass instead. Also for anybody interested in this app, it works 20 times better with Wi-Fi turned on!!! With it off, you will have all kinds of digital hiccups! Its not really live either. I noticed about a 10-15 second delay from what was on TV.

    Huh. I loaded the app last night and watched the game (well, just the second quarter) for free. I guess I'll enjoy it while I can!

    Hmmm well the app itself was free for me and I could navigate and check scores and read up on my team etc all for free. However last night when I pulled up the game, it told me that I had to pay a fee to watch it.

    I watched the game last night for a few minutes just to check the quality and I was not prompted for a charge at all.

    Same here...I believe I was using it for free, as I had no message pop up telling me that I was going to be charged. I just figured we were being given a trial run. I guess the next bill will be interesting. Regarding it, I thought the app was great. Went to bed at the beginning of 4th qtr and watched it with no problem.

    Maybe you guys forgot that you had downloaded it before? It's supposed to be free if you ORIGINALLY downloaded the app before a certain date (earlier this summer). After that date, you are supposed to have to pay, but maybe they changed something...

    Yea as-soon-as I received my droid(I thnk may or june) i downloaded it. Then took it off b/c NOT football season. I recently put it back on. Perhaps it "remmebered" me and therefore it will be "free".??? Any thoughts to that. would I be correct?

    anyhelp!!:eek:

    I did download it before, too - so maybe that is the key.

    Yes, I believe they have a flag set in the system if you downloaded it prior. I'm not sure how they do it, but it makes sense that they can. I really hope it's tied to your phone number though and not your MEID (or whatever it's called on VZW phones). I am getting a refurb next week (bad power button), and I really want my free season... :D

    OT : Also really cool, I found out since I subscribe to the "Ultimate" package on my Fios TV, I get Red Zone free there as well...Can't wait for tomorrow! To top it all off, tomorrow nights late game is my team (which means I get to see it...National Television)...

    GO SKINS!!!

    I watched nfl redzone through my droid today when I had to leave the house for a while. It was flawless and only had about a 10 sec delay from what I was seeing on my television. The app and the redzone are free for me.

    I must have downloaded the app to late then if you all are getting to watch the games for Free. I tried to watch some games yesterday and a thing came on the screen saying I need to subscribe to V Cast video on Demand to watch any Live content or NFL Redzone etc. Now it WILL let me hear the audio from various games and I can still access scores and team info and that sort of thing but no actual live game coverage unless I subscribe.

    I'm only able to get live audio and it sounds like what I normally hear on the local talk radio station... not the TV audio. It's great for me especially when traveling and they don't play my teams games. I have not been asked to pay ever. I'll have to try watching other games to see what happens.

    well i watched last weeks game for free and now I'm watching the Colts and Giants game for free. I guess it depends on when you got the NFL mobile app.

    yea it must remember that you downloaded it previously because after re-installing it I can watch all games w/o being charged.

    on a side note.....could the quality get any worse? even on a 20meg wifi connection the pixilization makes it unwatchable because of all the lag and refresh rate.
