    Will we be able to project video (and games) from the NFL Mobile app?

    Back in the Motorola Lapdock days, HDMI out was blocked for the NFL app.

    I wouldn't see why not. You are just projecting whatever is on your screen. I see no reason why they would block it.

    ^ exactly. Couldn't have been said any clearer. You're just projecting whatever is on your screen, which makes the Moto Z and Mod implementation incredible, downright futuristic tbh...

    Rest assured, if they can block it, they will find a way, lol.

    They've blocked HDMI in the past.

    True but this is not HDMI. This is just screen mirroring. No different then using mirrocast to stream to a smart TV. I think you'll be fine.

    While I would lean toward thinking it won't be blocked, I don't think we can assume it. We don't know enough about how the multi-pin port is treated to know if it's unblockable, and we don't know if they would desire it to be blocked or not.

    FYI, Streaming NFL games is blocked when casting to a TV. For this reason I believe it will be blocked when projecting if it is not already.

    I am considering purchasing the projector mod mostly to display NFL games. I'll report my findings if I make it out to BestBuy one of these Sundays.

    Someone on Reddit tried it and said it was blocked with the NFL app.

    I have the Moto Z and the projector. Tried and the NFL App, the Time Warner App and any other television based is blocked. I am beyond pissed that I purchased a 300 paper weight. This needs to be resolved immediately.

    It's a licensing issue, not a technical one. I doubt it will be "resolved".

    I know this for a fact, at least the part about the issue not being a technical one. Last year I could cast games until a few weeks into the season, and then evidently the app updated and projecting was blocked.

    I just tried it using the Verizon Mobile NFL app and while I could watch it on the phone it blocked it from projecting it. This is a bunch of Bulls**t What difference does it make? You are just making it bigger. However it allows me to cast the game to my android TV by connecting to the game on the phone and using the drop down menu and hitting cast. The game plays full screen and sound. Go figure. Maybe they will kill it in a few weeks as mentioned above .

    I was wondering whether or not the NFL app would allow projection and/or screen casting to happen. Thanks for the info. Am also wondering about screen casting the MLB app, both live games and video highlights. Anyone tried doing this?

    I work for Verizon. According to my Motorola rep this is the one thing that you aren't allowed to cast because of licensing and stuff.

    Pretty silly that they'd allow casting but not use with the projector. Licensing rules can be pretty silly sometimes.

    I ran into a problem with Miracasting my Note 7 using the Xfinity app (aka Comcast). It's beyond annoying to have this functionality locked out. I'm not trying to project or "sling" to a big screen t.v. so the whole neighborhood can show up and watch. It's for my personal enjoyment in my own home. I'd fully blame Verizon for this lockdown but Comcast is JUST as evil as VZW. Don't trust either of them at all and this kind of crap thoroughly annoys me to no end.
