Fact Checked Fact Checked

While some of us only tune into the Super Bowl half-time show, the NFL (National Football League) is a popular sport both in the U.S. and on a global scale. With an exhibition game played in London every year, and a number of Australians trying their hand at scoring touchdowns, American football appeals to plenty of fans around the world. But like most other American sports, Aussie fans have to contend with time zone challenges when it comes to watching their favourite teams take to the field. So where should you turn to for all your NFL action, and how much will it cost you? In this article, Canstar Blue investigates all your options before kick-off.
