How to Install and Activate NFL on TCL Smart TV

NFL on TCL Smart TV

Last month, my friend bought a 75″ Class Q-Class TCL Google TV in a special offer. Using that offer, he claimed a $200 discount for subscribing to NFL Sunday Ticket. However, he was upset since he could only watch out-of-market games on NFL Sunday Ticket using YouTube TV. I told him to install the NFL application on TCL Smart TV to stream the 2023-24 NFL season games.

Since he resides in the US, I told him to get the NFL+ subscription to access the NFL app. If you are from outside the US, you should subscribe to NFL Game Pass. Then, install the DAZN app on TCL Smart TV, log in with NFL Game Pass credentials, and watch the NFL events.

In this article, I will teach you how to install and activate the NFL app on all TCL Smart TV models. I also explained how to stream the NFL games using streaming services like Sling TV, YouTube TV, and fuboTV.
