Does anyone utilize this service? The premium service is $5 a month and you can stream live NFL games on Thursday, Sunday and Monday nights, the NFL Network, and NFL Redzone plus a few other minor features.

I am going to give it a shot this season, or at least for a few months. I really want the NFL Redzone and I am not going to pay DirecTV $300 or whatever they are charging to get it.

Now I just need to figure out a way to transfer the feed from my phone to my TV or tablet because even on smartphones those screens arent big enough and the service is only for phones. The other concern I have is the video quality while on 4G. I was just streaming the NFL Network channel while on 4G and it was a bit grainy. It even cut out one time. I assume people will pay for this service because they want to watch NFL stuff while away from their home wifi, unless they are at a bar or friends house with wifi.

I've never used it, but as far as transfering from phone to TV they make micro USB to HDMI cables.

I actually have a Droid Razr which has a micro-HDMI out. I have a cable that does micro-HDMI to HDMI but alot of times video-out will be disabled or blocked. And then I have to worry about video quality and download speed. If the video sometimes looks like crap on my phone, just imagine what it would look like going to my '50 HDTV.

Looks like a root would need to be done to get the video-out to work with NFL Mobile.

This might help, but I haven't gotten mine yet, so I don't know what exactly you're able to stream to your TV using Google Cast.
