Snap to it: NFL app for Xbox and Windows 8 is now available

Comfy place on the couch picked out? Check. Beverages and snacks? Check. NFL app for Xbox and Windows 8? It’s ready for you and available now, just in time for the Sept. 4 kickoff of the new season.

The NFL app incorporates Microsoft’s trademark Snap feature to give you in-game video highlights, fantasy scoring and stats as you watch your favorite games live, writes Xbox Wire. Fans who already have NFL Sunday Ticket Max from DirecTV will be able to watch live games directly through the app – and with the HDMI-in port on the Xbox One, they can watch every live game through their cable or satellite provider, and still have the app snapped to the side of their screens.

If you’re a fantasy football fiend, the NFL app is now connected to NFL.com and CBS Sports.com fantasy leagues, so no matter where you battle your friends for fantasy bragging rights, you can conveniently keep tabs on your teams with Xbox One.

Download the NFL on Windows 8 app from the Windows Store, and to learn more, head over to Xbox Wire.
