FireStick devices have 4.5 GB internal storage at most since the remaining are for system use. Therefore, your FireStick device must always have sufficient memory to download and install any app without issues. 

The NFL app has a file size of about 76 MB, so double-check if your FireStick device can handle that. You can navigate to your FireStick’s Settings > My Fire TV > About > Storage to see its remaining internal storage space.

How to Watch NFL on Your FireStick Using Other Streaming Apps 

The NFL app isn’t the only platform where you can stream live games on your FireStick. Believe it or not, other streaming apps are the best place for watching live NFL games this season on your FireStick.

In particular, we recommend using multiple streaming apps if you want to watch all NFL live games since some matches are exclusive to specific apps. Below are other streaming apps we recommend to watch the NFL on FireStick this season.

Via YouTube TV (Sunday Afternoon Football)

After NFL Sunday Ticket departed from DIRECTV, YouTube TV is the new home for Sunday Football Games. Consequently, YouTube TV’s NFL Sunday Ticket is where you can catch most live games this season, making it the best platform to watch.

You can stream around 200 Sunday afternoon football games with the YouTube TV NFL Sunday Ticket. Therefore, YouTube TV is the most significant source for live NFL games of all streaming apps that offer access to NFL+ content this season. 

Moreover, you can get NFL Redzone with your Sunday Ticket, which gives you access to more exclusive game-day content on YouTube TV. Unfortunately, you can’t catch all the NFL games and content with your YouTube TV subscription alone. 

Due to the NFL’s complicated broadcasting contracts, some football matches are only officially available on certain streaming apps. This situation forces NFL fans who don’t want to miss games to subscribe to multiple streaming services simultaneously. 

Step 1: Open the YouTube TV app on your FireStick.


Note: Refer to the NLF installation instructions to install YouTube TV on your FireStick
if you don’t have it yet. The installation process for all Amazon App Store
apps is similar on all Fire TV devices.
Step 2: Click SIGN IN.

Step 3: Check your activation code and the YouTube TV activation page.

Step 4: Visit the YouTube TV activation page on your PC or smartphone’s web browser and click SIGN IN.

Step 5: Enter your Gmail account and click Next.

Step 6: Return to the YouTube TV activation page after you sign in to enter
the activation code and click Next.

Step 7: Confirm the Google account you’re using.

Step 8: Click Allow to authorize the YouTube TV app on your FireStick device.

Step 9: Return to your FireStick, and you should automatically sign into the YouTube TV app.

Step 10: Go to your YouTube TV profile icon.

Step 11: Go to Settings.

Step 12: Go to the Membership tab to add NFL Sunday Ticket or NFL Sunday Ticker + NFL RedZone
to your YouTube TV Base Plan.


Note: You can’t purchase an NFL Sunday Ticket on YouTube TV without a Base Plan. Furthermore, your
YouTube TV Base Plan must be active to access your NFL Sunday Ticket.
Step 13: Add a payment detail and click Purchase.


Note: You must cancel your subscription under the Membership tab so you
don’t get billed automatically in the NFL next season. This action won’t stop your access
to NFL Sunday Ticket prematurely.

If YouTube TV is the home of Sunday Afternoon Football, Amazon Prime Video is for Thursday Night Football. As such, Prime Video is an essential streaming app to watch the NFL on FireStick since some live games are exclusive to this platform.

A subscription to Prime Video fills the gaps on your YouTube TV app, making both streaming services companions for the current NFL season.

Indeed, Amazon Prime Video is a solid streaming app for watching NFL games without breaking the bank.

Step 1: Go to the Amazon Prime Video web page.

Step 2: Sign in or create an Amazon account.

App Store apps is similar on all Fire TV devices.

YouTube TV and Prime Video aside, we recommend subscribing to Peacock and ESPN+. Peacock will stream 18 Sunday Night Football games, while ESPN+ will cover 22 Monday Night Football games.

With this lineup, you won’t miss any live NFL games in the entire 2023 to 2024 season. Unfortunately, this might cost a leg and arm for some FireStick users, making this collection of streaming apps less ideal.
