The first time I saw HBO Now I didn’t know what the hell was going on.
It was a $15 per month cable TV subscription that offered a huge array of sports programming and free HBO Now access.
When I went back to the network’s website and looked for the HBO Now version of my local sports network, I was greeted with an oddly shaped map of the NFL playoffs.
The first thing I noticed was that it had no NFL.
The map had an oddly-shaped logo.
I clicked it to see what it said, and it said that the network had announced that it was “delivering its most anticipated sports championship in more than a decade.”
The second thing I saw was that I was in the wrong network’s NFL app.
I tried to sign in, and I was redirected to the HBO app.
A banner at the bottom of the page said “Watch with HBO NOW.”
HBO Now was the one that was supposed to bring sports to me.
That was my only option.
After more than two months of waiting, HBO Now finally showed up for me.
It offered the most compelling sports content in a TV app I’d never used before.
It had a host of new programming, including HBO’s latest game, “Game of Thrones,” as well as the network standard series “The Leftovers.”
But HBO Now wasn’t just any sports app.
It featured all of the best sports on TV, including the “Game” show and “American Idol.”
It also had the best lineup of live games on cable TV, as well, including games that were broadcast on ESPN and Fox.
HBO Now also had a lot of the same content I’ve grown to love over the years: ESPN’s NBA Countdown, ESPN’s college football game preview show, and ESPN’s weekly college basketball coverage.
The most important thing that HBO Now had going for it was that HBO was the only network that could stream the NFL Playoffs, the NFL Championship Game, and the Super Bowl.
When I went to HBO Now’s homepage, I clicked the Sports section, which brought up a list of live sports and a countdown clock.
In that clock was a picture of a blue-and-white football jersey with the words “NFL Playoffs” printed across the chest.
I’d clicked it, and that football jersey had a date, time, and location on it.
It said, “Watch now with HBO Now.”
That’s when I realized what was going wrong.
I was watching a program that had nothing to do with sports.
I didn’s game, but that was all that HBO offered me.
I had no idea what to do next.
My next stop on my quest to find a sports app I could enjoy was a popular sports streaming service called “StreamNow,” which I was told had the same functionality as HBO Now.
StreamNow offered access to nearly every NFL game, and most of its programming was available for free.
The only catch was that StreamNow wasn’t available for the NBA.
The app didn’t appear to offer any sort of live streaming of any kind, nor did it offer a way to watch any of the games that NFL Network had broadcast.
It didn’t have any other live sports content.
I searched the internet, and there was a plethora of sites offering to stream the NBA and other sports games for free or for a fraction of the price of HBO Now or StreamNow.
But the most popular was a site called StreamTV, which offered free streaming of the Superbowl, and a bunch of other games.
The site that seemed to be the most useful for me, however, was a website called “NFL Stream.”
The name seemed familiar, and my first thought was that NFL Stream was part of the network.
I logged in, clicked the “Stream” link, and found a link to a page that said, in part, “NFL GamePass for $7.99.”
I clicked that link, clicked on the “Free” button, and clicked the next page.
There, I found the option to “Stream Now.”
This page was just a little bigger than the rest of the pages on the site.
I checked the box for “I have an NFL subscription,” and then clicked the link to the NFL Stream app.
NFL Stream offered the NFL’s most-streamed games for $3.99.
That’s right: The only thing that NFL GamePass does for you is let you watch games for a low price.
NFL Stream also didn’t offer any way to stream other NFL games, but it did have the option for a “NFL Live” stream that included the games of the week.
On the NFL Live page, I saw a list that read, “The NFL Network’s most watched live football game this week is Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers.”
I didn, however.
I couldn’t find the exact game, so I went ahead and watched it.
In that same page, a listing
