The Madden NFL 17 companion indulges those league commissioner fantasies

If you just can't get enough NFL football on Sunday, Monday, Thursday, occasionally Saturday, and also on major holidays, then there are worse ways to spend your money than EA's Madden franchise. And if you still can't get enough, you can bring that video game football experience with you everywhere (sort of) via the official companion app. The latest version for the "2017" edition includes most of the features you'd expect, with a heavy emphasis on the game's Madden Ultimate Team mode.

ESPN app updated with live streaming, Chromecast support, and more

We are nearing the end of the professional football season here in the U.S. (good news for some), but that has not stopped ESPN from providing its Android app with some pretty big changes. Most notably are the inclusion of live streaming and Chromecast support.

Twitter gets a dedicated Android TV app for streaming football (and maybe some other videos too)

As nice as it is to get a new Android TV app from a large web property (and also rare, natch), one might reasonably wonder what Twitter is doing on a platform almost exclusively dedicated to streaming video. The answer is, of course, streaming video: Twitter has a lucrative deal with the NFL to stream some but not all of this season's Thursday Night Football games for free on the service. This app would have been a lot more useful before we got 10 weeks into a 17-week season, but hey, gift horses and whatnot.

The CBS Sports App Gets Updated To Stream The AFC Championship Game And The Super Bowl, But Only On Tablets

If you're a good little brow-beaten NFL fan like me, then watching all of the playoff games is a penance. Each of the major networks gets its own game every weekend, and they're all desperately trying to avoid the moment when they're contractually obligated to tell you about the games on the other channels. And in the case of CBS, they mention the fact that they have both the Super Bowl and the Grammy's every twenty seconds, because apparently they think the same people who will watch a bloated, drawn-out spectacle full of egos and corporate sponsorship will also watch a music awards show.

NFL Mobile Updated To v12.0, Now Actually Looks And Feels Like An Android App

Let's be honest, the NFL has not done a great job with its Android app. It was basically just a nice little viewer for content that was on the web, and by that I mean it was just showing the web pages in a little bit prettier interface. With a new update, though, it is much smoother and actually feels like they cared about the end product.

Screenshots won't really do it justice because it is all about the feel. If you already used it, you might be a little disoriented due to the movement of some controls, but you'll notice the speed right away.

NFL Scores New YouTube Channel With Google Search-Integrated Video Clips In Time For Super Bowl XLIX

In 2014, the US was shocked to see a flock of sea hawks fly in from the northwest and, despite normally preying on fish, completely devour a team of broncos from the Rockies. This year the birds are still on the offensive, but a group of patriots from New England have banded together to stop them. On Sunday, we will get to see the two sides do battle in a giant bowl.

Wait, that's not what's happening this weekend? I better Google this some more.

Huh, look what pops up now.

That's right, the NFL has created a YouTube channel that contains clips and commentary on the good old American sport of football.

NFL Mobile App Gets Updated For Super Bowl XLIX, Will Even Include Commercials

The official mobile app of the NFL is getting a few new features in preparation for February 1st's Super Bowl. Verizon customers will enjoy live streaming of the game while anyone can access news, event maps, and a variety of content for those watching and attending the big game.

The attendee-specific features seem particularly thoughtful, with Google-powered maps that have relevant locations bookmarked built into the app. Beyond that, there is also content to answer questions about stadium policy and anything else people might be concerned with.

For non-attendees, it isn't necessarily an update that makes the app a must-download. If you have it and like it already, great.

Full Fat Releases NFL Kicker And NFL Quarterback 2015, Hopes To Drive The Ball Into Your Bank Account's Red Zone

The American football season is just getting underway, and that means it's time for game tie-ins. Full Fat has long made games based on the flick-kick model, and now you can complete passes and score field goals with NFL Kicker and NFL Quarterback 2015.

d a s

In NFL Kicker, you have to complete field goals from different places on the field with varying wind. You've probably seen this gameplay skinned several different ways. NFL Quarterback is a little different—your goal is to complete passes and pull off big plays. It's basically the entertaining part of football (or handegg if you will) over and over.

HTC Sense TV App Update Brings Support For American Football And Rugby

The Sense TV app comes pre-installed exclusively on a number of HTC handsets, such as the One M7 and, more recently, the M8. It serves as an image-heavy, contextual remote that tries to take the hassle out of keeping up with what's playing on which channels. There's also a sports component that places emphasis on athletic shows and current scores. Today's update takes that last element and mixes it with good ol' American football and a shot of rugby.

What's new:

  • Sense TV Sports now support American Football (NFL, NCAA)
  • Sense TV Sports now support Tri-Nation Rugby

Having long already supported soccer to appeal to its global users, HTC is now throwing a bone to its American customers by giving attention to what we in the States think of when we say football.
