Why isn’t the NFL app working for you?

There are several reasons why the app might not work on your device. Common factors include:

  • Outdated app version
  • Internet connectivity issues
  • Active VPNs or Proxies
  • Server outage over at NFL. 

How to fix the NFL app?

Here are five fixes you can try out. 

Check your internet

When an internet-based app doesn’t work properly, you should first check if you’re connected to the internet. If you’re on mobile data, check to see if it’s enabled and that you have good network coverage. Alternatively, you can also try switching to mobile data from WiFi. Sometimes the error is triggered when users try to make payments over a WiFi network instead of mobile data. 

Restart the app

Another quick fix that can get the NFL app back up and running is to simply force close the app and restart it again. Regardless of whether you’re on Android, iOS or any other platform, restarting can get rid of temporary files that may be hampering the app’s functionality.

Check if you’re using the right app

Next up, check to see if you’re using the right app. If you’re using the NFL Game Pass Domestic app and you downloaded it outside of the officially supported countries or territories, the app might not work for you. In such cases, you need to download the NFL Game Pass International app. 

Clear the cache

Clearing the app’s cache can eliminate any corrupt files or data that might interfere with the app’s functionality.
