Want games on your device but don't want to shell out hundreds of dollars for the Sunday Ticket? If you're willing to connect a SlingBox to your cable, satellite or DVR, this app will let you watch live games you're already paying for just like you would at home. You can even watch and control games you've recorded if you don't feel like wasting data on commercials. Users can change channels, schedule game recordings and pause or skip through those games, all from their mobile devices. The best part? Unlike paid football apps that lose their usefulness once the season ends, you only have to pay for this once.
