Watching the NFL With Bitcoin
NFL fans rejoice! A new season is upon us. But for many, watching their favorite teams can be costly and problematic. Now, a new option called Freecast lets people watch any game, including premium and location-restricted content like NFL Redzone and the playoffs. Furthermore, Freecast offers customers the option to pay with bitcoin.
The purported owner of the site noted on Reddit that quality is up to 4500 kbps streaming, with a 720p resolution at 60 frames-per-second. He also claimed that there won’t be any lag, as the stream adapts to your Internet connection. Freecast reportedly works on all devices, including Xbox, PS4, iOS, Android, PC, and Mac.
But the price is the major selling point here. Customers will get access to the service for $10 per month or $50 per season, compared to NFL’s Game Pass, which costs $24.99 per week or $199
