With the 2013 season being the 49ers final campaign at Candlestick Park, there’s no excuse when it comes to missing home games this fall or winter.
It should be said that the fan experience is so good at home – no matter where on the globe home is. And thanks to three offerings from the folks at NFL.com, we’d forgive you for forsaking the tailgate once or thrice this year.
Those three services won’t mimic the at-the-park experience, but they will give fans without tickets plenty of incentive to tune in.
Game Rewind – Buy Here
Busy on a particular Sunday and have to miss the game altogether? The primary offering of this product is a complete or condensed replay of the action – without TV commercials. Different packages allow you to follow the 49ers or the whole league, include every regular season game, the postseason and the Super Bowl. The on-demand immediacy and HD quality is nice, too. It’s compatiable with iOS and Android tablets.
And to appease your inner Jim Harbaugh – he and the 49ers coaches use iPad playbooks – cue up the "Coaches Film" angles. Highlights of your favorite players are available too.
Game Pass – Buy Here
The international version of Game Rewind (see above) has all of the same features but also allows the user to watch games live.
Viva los 49ers.
