    I signed up for it for the sake of being able to review the games on my pc as well as check out some of the out of town games, and I have to say it's pretty fantastic. Extremely clear, and you can even watch up to 4 games at the same time. You also can rewind/fast forward, etc. Definitely worth the $20.

    Anyone else using it?

    Yes! I figured I owed the league after a couple years of pirating streams (I live in Bills country, so I hardly ever get to see the Pats), and I'm so glad I chose to splurge. It's very clear, easy to use, and the ability to switch between games is great.

    Helpful Hint: If you're looking for a way to watch a particular play, ESPN always has a play-by-play section for each game, which comes with quarter and clock signatures: i.e., 3rd quarter, 4:35 left. It's great to see how other teams' rookies are performing. I saw that Aldon Smith had a sack, so I used the ESPN game recap to find out when that was, and then I clicked forward through the NFL.com stream until that time in the game, and watched his sack. Geeky? Perhaps. But it sure was fun! :D

    They don't have this for regular season too do they? Not really interested in watching other teams preseason but, that would be pretty sick if they do for a good price.

    Does anyone have a link to or a copy of the Jags-Pats so that I can see it? I have tried to find one but I have had no luck as of yet. Thanks in advance for anyone who can help me.

    I also got it, and it's great. Watched the Pats game again yesterday on there, and watched parts of a couple of other games too. Absolutely worth the $20.

    They do. It's $29.95 (the 'discounted' price if you have the preseason package) for the regular season, but they're not live. You'd be able to watch all of them after they're over.

    Wow, that's actually a very good deal. Granted it's not live and you know the outcome, but it's a great way to take another look during the week. You could review the Pats' previous game, watch a division or conference rival that you didn't get to see because they were on at the same time as the Pats, and perhaps best of all take a look at the previous game of the Pats' upcoming opponent.

    Plus, unless they've changed things, you get at least all the regular season games from 2010, so you can, for example, watch 45-3 to your heart's content. :D

    I didn't know about this either, but I'll definitely be grabbing it. $30 for on-demand football? Yes please.

    That is the price if you already put down $20 for the preseason package.

    Compare that to the $280 us in the UK have to pay for NFL Gamepass which granted has all the games live, apart from the two best games of the week picked by our cable broadcaster which are blocked until the following Saturday. Very prohibitive so it's pirate streams for me.

    I used it Ian, and loved the clarity of the picture, and the ability to rewind/fast forward. However, it timed out on me about 20 times where I had to log back in. When I tried to log back in, it wouldn't work until about the 12th or 13th time. This all happened in the 2nd half. The first half was fine.

    I'll see if it does the same thing next game, but it was a hassle for game one. That's my experience.

    BTW, if it's sticking you with a low quality stream, what I did was uncheck "best available quality" and manually set it to the highest setting. Worked like a charm- I used my HDMI out to get it playing on my TV, and it looked very sharp, about on par with an HD broadcast.

    Anyone watching Browns/Packers? Colt McCoy looks great so far.
