The Optimum Sports and Entertainment Pak is separate from its five tiers of service, which include Economy, Value, Preferred, Silver and Gold. The Sports and Entertainment Pak consists of 25 extra sports channels, such as NFL TV, NHL Network, MLB Network, Fox Sports 2 and the Outdoor Channel.

The additional cost of the Sports and Entertainment Pak is approximately $9 per month, as of May 2015, and is available even if you have Economy or Value service, as long as you have a digital cable box. If you have a high definition television, you can watch NFL TV in HD at no extra cost.

With the Sports and Entertainment Pak, you can also enjoy NFL TV while traveling via Optimum TV to Go. By downloading an Optimum App to your mobile device and selecting Optimum from a list of providers, you can enjoy NFL TV on any mobile device, except the service only works within the United States.

The NFL TV channel broadcasts around the clock. "NFL Classic Games," "Playbook" and the Emmy award-winning "Sound FX" are a few of its programs you can access on your television or mobile device.
