    NFL Mobile App + Tablets + NFL Mobile Premium Subscription

    I still use Privacy Blocker to disguise my carrier and phone info on the NFL Mobile app. I still works surprisingly well. However, due to Verizon's contract with the NFL, the NFL Mobile premium subscription will not work on "tablets" (this also includes a number of phablets), the subscription only works on smartphones. The NFL Mobile app will force you to use your cable tv subscription (which I do NOT have) in order to view live streaming content.


    My question is, Can anyone modify the NFL mobile app to where the app thinks its on a smartphone? Thus, the app resorts to using the NFL Mobile Premium subscription rather than force you to login and use your Cable TV subscription.

    OK, after several days trying to figure it out without success. I really want somebody to help try to figure out how to get the NFL mobile app to use your NFL Mobile premium subscription on tablets and phablets. I'm an amateur, but here's a somewhat "hacked" version of the NFL Mobile app.

    You need Titanium Backup to install and restore the app data to get video streaming working.

    There's a couple issues with the app/hack:
    1. As I stated above, the app can NOT use your NFL Mobile premium subscription on tablets and a number of phablets as well.
    2. Live video/audio streaming will not work on SIM card based android devices. I tested this on several different Android devices (AT&T Galaxy S3, Verizon Galaxy S3, Verizon Droid DNA) and SIM cards (Verizon and AT&T)... it seems the NFL mobile app is reading IMSI and/or Phone # off the SIM card, then rejects access to live streaming because of them... Privacy Blocker doesn't detect and fix this.

    So, live streaming only works on CDMA, non-SIM card android devices (i.e. Sprint Galaxy S2)

    Get NFL Game Pass instead

    Found another app even better than NFL Mobile... It's NFL Game Pass. It works on phones and tablets with no TV and/or phone subscriptions required. I got what I wanted... It also doesn't stop streaming video when you idle too long.

    Here's a forum thread about the app, which provides a link to download the apk.

    Thanks smartymcfly for the info.
