The 2015-2016 season of the National Football League is about to begin, with the opening game scheduled for Thursday, September 10th. That means new apps, new services and, best of all, more ways to watch free games while on the go. Today, NFL announced that it has completely redesigned NFL Mobile, which will start featuring NFL Now, the league's online video network. As a result, Now won't be a standalone product any longer, as the NFL is making an effort to streamline its digital properties. What's more, the premium version of NFL Now, which offers access to NFL Films and other original content, is now going to be integrated into NFL GamePass. Pre-Season Live, AudioPass and GameRewind will also be a part of GamePass going forward.

Lastly, NFL Mobile is giving all Verizon phone customers the ability to watch games for free through their mobile device, no matter what plan they have. Starting this season, the NFL will let these users stream Thursday, Saturday and Monday Night Football, as well as in-market Sunday afternoon game, on iOS or Android smartphones. (The NFL says this won't work on tablets.) That's great news for Verizon customers, since they won't have to worry about paying an extra fee for streaming those games.

Expect of all of these changes to roll out over the next few hours.
