    Thursday Night Football now FREE on iPad

    I have FIOS but for those of you without the NFL Network, you can now see the live streaming video on your iPad.

    NFL '11 For iPad Updated With Access To Thursday Night Football Online Broadcast (Updated)[/B]

    BY Tyler Tschida on Thu December 01st, 2011

    [B]The NFL’s Thursday Night Football schedule is now in full swing, but if your cable provider doesn’t give you access to the NFL Network, you’ve been missing out on some pretty good football. Well, that doesn’t have to be the case anymore, at least as long as you have an iPad, because the NFL’s official iPad app has been updated with access to the NFL Network’s online broadcast of Thursday Night Football.[/B]

    The NFL Network’s online broadcast of Thursday Night Football provides game-long studio analysis, live look-ins, and game highlights, so you’ll never miss the big game-changing play. Since this isn’t a direct live stream of the game, it could also serve as a companion for those who already have access to the NFL Network at home.

    Since the NFL Network’s online coverage of Thursday Night Football doesn’t begin until 8 PM ET, there’s no good way of knowing exactly how to access the feed from the iPad app. But if we had take a stab at it, we’re guessing it will be under the “video” section of the app. We’ll just have to wait and see.

    While you wait until 8 PM to roll around, go download the free NFL ’11 for iPad app so you can dig around before the game starts. The app has come a long way since it was first introduced in April, and now includes on-demand NFL Network news and info, game highlights, the ability to follow game action with animated charts and stats, and live radio broadcasts via the NFL’s Audio Pass.

    Update: Here’s how to view the NFL Network’s online broadcast of Thursday Night Football: When viewing “Game Schedules” you should see a big red “Live Video Available” below the Eagles vs. Seahawks game. Tap it to bring up the stats page, and at the top of the screen you’ll see a new “Live Video” button.

    I checked it out along with the game on my tv. Not great but better than zero coverage.
