With no live sporting events going on and people staying inside due to concern surrounding coronavirus, both the NFL and NBA have opened up their premium streaming services to fans, free of charge.

The NFL sent out a memo Wednesday afternoon announcing that NFL Game Pass will be free to fans through May 31.

The service allows fans to watch replays of every game, commercial-free and in HD, from 2009-2019, as well as access to shows such as HBO's Hard Knocks, Mic'd Up, and A Football Life. Additionally, fans can watch games through the "All-22" lens, an angle that shows all 22 players on the field at the same time.

Moments later, the NBA followed the NFL's lead, announcing that League Pass would be free to fans as well through April 22. 

NBA League Pass allows fans to watch replays of every game played during the 2019-20 season, as well as access to classic games from the league's history.

While almost everyone will be spending plenty of time inside over the next few weeks as concern over the coronavirus continues to grow, the NBA and NFL have given fans plenty of things to watch to help pass the time.
