Default American football in Dubai

Hello
So is there any place to watch NFL football in Dubai? Do TV or Satellite companies offer any packages to view games? I know I can get it online but not the best way to watch it, rather in a pub or on a big screen. Any advice??

Well it's a job with a US based aerospace company. The job is actually in Abu Dhabi, but since that forum is so quiet, I spend more time here. I did some research and you may be able to get NFL game pass from the NFL website, not sure how well it'll work though.

Actually my job is based in Abu dhabi also but was told it's cheaper to live in Dubai and just commute. When are you going over?

Yea I heard it's cheaper in Dubai also and more fun, but I'm not a big fan of long commutes, so I'll try AD and see how it goes. I'll probably be there mid October, but move my family in November. When are you scheduled to be there?

As soon as my visa is processed they will send me my airline ticket 2-4 weeks as of the 1st of Sept. Not bringing my family though, my wife has a career in US so going solo. Really concerned about the view of Americans over there

Damn, we went from discussing football to living in Dubai traveling to Abu Dhabi.... Man, you guys don't help the stereotype of Americans with short attention span....

Yes, some offer packages.... but the games are show in the wee hours of the mornings. You could dvr them and watch them at night, but you have to make sure you don't see the scores before then.

The opinions are the same everywhere. Some hate us, some love us. Don't worry about that and you will be fine. I think you will find yourself in good company and also won't be harassed or anything.

To the NFL fans......

Both Cable TV providers (Du & Etisalat) offer a sports package. It includes Fox Sports, which offers NFL, NHL & MLB games. During the football season, every Sunday a different team is featured. But throughout the week, they replay different games from that week.

I have also purchased 'NFL Gamepass' so that i can watch my team every week. I've had no issues with it (no buffering issues or cut-outs), and its featured in HD.

Good luck with yor move here!
