In this article, I will show you how to watch NFL Game Pass on FireStick. This method works the same for all Amazon’s Fire TV devices including Amazon FireStick 4K, Fire TV Stick Lite, and Fire TV Cube.
National Football League (NFL) is back with a bang! If you’ve ditched your cable company in favor of video streaming services, well, you are not alone. You can still catch up on all the NFL action at the comfort of your home through numerous streaming services. We will have a look at it at the later stage of this article.
If you are an NFL fanatic, you must consider having an NFL Game Pass. Why? Because it offers a great way to watch NFL games. It does what no other streaming service does for NFL fans. It is safe to say that it is an ideal place to access unlimited football content, bringing you all the action from preseason to postseason, with everything in between.
So, what exactly is the NFL Game Pass?
What is NFL Game Pass?
For the unknown, NFL Game Pass is an on-demand streaming service provided by NFL. It allows users to watch replays of every NFL game all season long. You also get other options like full audio streams, condensed game replay mode that cuts the playtime to about 45 minutes, and more.
Besides game replays, you can also catch up on several NFL-centric content in the form of shows produced by NFL Networks. Among them are NFL Total Access, Good Morning Football, Fantasy Live, NFL GameDay, and more. It is worth mentioning here that don’t confuse NFL Game Pass with NFL RedZone.
With Game Pass, you can access NFL Original content to get the inside scoop on your favorite players and teams with NFL Films, including streaming the new season of HBO’s NFL Hard Knocks.
Attention, FireStick Users!
Governments and ISPs constantly monitor your online activity, and accessing copyrighted content on your Fire TV Stick could lead to serious trouble. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. I strongly recommend getting the best FireStick VPN to mask your IP address and securely stream your favorites.
I personally use ExpressVPN, the fastest and most secure VPN available. Not only is it easy to install on any device, it comes with a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee. Plus, if you're not 100% satisfied, you can always get a refund. ExpressVPN is currently also offering a whopping 3 extra months free on their annual plan!

How to Watch NFL Game Pass for Free (30 days)
NFL doesn’t offer any free trial for the Game Pass in the US. However, with a neat trick, you can enjoy all the benefits of NFL Games Pass free for 30-days.
DAZN, a sports streaming giant in Canada offers complete NFL coverage, NFL Game Pass content, and on-demand NFL highlights in the neighboring country Canada.
The company offers a generous 30-days of free trial to check out the content and streaming quality. But it’s not available in the US and here’s where a VPN service such as ExpressVPN comes to the rescue.
With ExpressVPN, you can bypass geo-restrictions and enjoy DAZN on your FireStick regardless of your current location.
Sign-up for ExpressVPN from the official website and get your account credentials.
ExpressVPN comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee so you can cancel it too at the same time you cancel your DAZN subscription. Note that I highly recommend keeping ExpressVPN if you stream with low-cost or free services. It not only changes your location but hides your online streaming activities.
ExpressVPN has native apps for every platform including the Amazon App Store and it also supports major browsers through an extension.
You can download the ExpressVPN extension for Google Chrome and set the location to Canada. Go to the official DAZN website (which is now accessible thanks to ExpressVPN) and sign up for a free trial.
Once you create a free account on the DAZN website, it’s time to install the app on FireStick. For that, follow the guide below.
How to Install & Watch DAZN on FireStick
Now that you have downloaded DAZN on FireStick, the next step revolves around setting up ExpressVPN on FireStick with your account details.
