If you own an Apple TV, there’s a new way to get your fix of the National Football League (NFL) this season. NFL Now, a new streaming service announced earlier this month for connected set-top boxes, is now available on Apple’s black hockey puck.

While the app doesn’t support full matches, there should be a reasonable amount of free content for fans to dig into throughout the season. The NFL is promising game highlights, live conferences and various shows. NFL Now Plus subscribers, who need to fork out $1.99 per month, will also gain access to instant in-game highlights and the NFL Films vault.

NFL Now and NFL Now Plus are available on a plethora of other platforms too, including iOS, Android and Windows Phone. If you’re not willing to pay for full NFL glory, this could be a good way to dip you toe in the water.
