Fox Sports will begin streaming NFL games to tablets and desktop computers this season, according to an announcement on Wednesday.

Fans will have the option of watching games televised in their market after signing in with their cable or satellite provider. Out of market games will not be included in the streaming option. Games can't be streamed on mobile phones, according to league rules.

Fox Sports Go, the streaming video app, will carry 97 regular season games and four playoff games, including the NFC Championship game.

The announcement comes after Fox streamed the Super Bowl on its app this past February.

FOX Sports GO’s live stream of the Seattle Seahawks dominant performance in Super Bowl XLVIII, defeating the Denver Broncos 43-8, was watched by an average audience of 528,000 viewers per minute – the most-viewed live stream at the time for a single sports event in the U.S.
