You don't have to pay Sunday Ticket prices just to watch games on your phone. NBC and CBS apps will give you in-market games for free, while Fox and Watch ESPN apps offer their games only to cable subscribers. If you just want to watch the home team while you're away, connect a SlingBox to your cable, satellite or DVR, let this app bring you live games you're already paying for. 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. Also, unlike paid football apps that lose their usefulness once the season ends, you only pay for this once. If you have a Roku or Apple TV and are looking to watch games streaming on your phone or tablet, SlingPlayer offers free apps just for that purpose.
