Now, whether this will be viewable through the Boxee Browser, I don't know. Also, as the name suggests, this is only for Sunday games.

NFL has something called Gamepass that only works outside the US.
Monthly Subscription ($24.99):
Get unlimited access to the live action, NFL Network, and the complete game archive for 28 days.
At the moment you can only watch the games in a browser with Adobe Flash but you can watch in using the app "Boxee Browser":
Check it out. There is a free demo from an old Saints/Colts game.
I think its rather good but I'm not sure how easy it is to use if you have a subscription.
I would prefer an actual app.

The NFL to go thing is only for people that already have Sunday Ticket and therefore DirecTV.
However, As part of the last contract renewal with DirecTV an online a la carte Sunday Ticket subscription is supposed to be available by 2012. Keep your fingers crossed. The NFL is the only major sports league in the US that doesn't offer an online subscription.

I know that is what the link suggests. However, last year it was available as a stand-alone product for $350/season. A bit steep considering it doesn't cover Monday nights, or the late season Thursday and Saturday games. I guess we will have to wait and see if it will be available for this season as well. I would imagine any new collective bargaining agreement will have some stipulation about online delivery. Hopefully they will have that ironed out by the start of the season.

Wow they are really missing the boat on this one. I was just looking on how to buy it... NHL it is then.
