As the new NFL season picks up, Bitcoin users now have the option to watch any game each week, for a fraction of the price.

Watching the NFL With Bitcoin

NFL fans rejoice! A new season is upon us. But for many, watching their favorite teams can be costly and problematic. Now, a new option called Freecast lets people watch any game, including premium and location-restricted content like NFL Redzone and the playoffs. Furthermore, Freecast offers customers the option to pay with bitcoin.

The purported owner of the site noted on Reddit that quality is up to 4500 kbps streaming, with a 720p resolution at 60 frames-per-second. He also claimed that there won’t be any lag, as the stream adapts to your Internet connection. Freecast reportedly works on all devices, including Xbox, PS4, iOS, Android, PC, and Mac.

But the price is the major selling point here. Customers will get access to the service for $10 per month or $50 per season, compared to NFL’s Game Pass, which costs $24.99 per week or $199 per season — a prohibitive price for many would-be viewers.

The site may engage in some form of account-sharing, however, since the streams come from NFL Game Pass, according to the owner. Therefore, Freecast may experience problems in the future, possibly finding itself in a game of whack-a-mole with authorities.

Nevertheless, this is the only option for some bitcoin-holding NFL fans. Feedback so far has varied from excellent to some experiencing account issues.

Thanks for this, it is good to see that people could finally watch sports matches via live stream with their consoles.


This could be huge, not many consoles can play flash video so this may get interesting.

Following up my other reply: Hopefully the type of people who make these things implement buffer free mobile stream. Live stream sports on mobile could make the sports betting industy increase quicker because of how much easier/cheaper it is to get a regular phone than a computer.

I picked up a month to try it out.  One game was missing last week, but the rest were fine.  Much better than trying to watch on those 8000 popup low res streaming sites.
