I am having the same exact issue. After activating, it forces me to sign in, but says my NFL subscription user or password are incorrect and to visit NFL.com if I have issues. I go there and sign in fine, and can see the games. But then I come back and attempt to sign in to my Roku account on my TV and it still won't sign in to the NFL App for GAMEPASS. If I click the sign up button, it tells me I have already purchased the channel (?!)
Very frustrating. Please fix this.
You didnt mention your Roku model # or firmware version (Settings/System/About) or app version (highlight the app and press Options (*) on the remote).
Try reinstalling the app, but you need to cancel your Roku Pay-based NFL GamePass subscription first (you'll still have all the remaining subscription time):
1) Cancel sub: https://my.roku.com/account/subscriptions
2) Reinstall NFL app:
A) Remove the NFL app (Highlight the app, press the Options (*) button on the remote, then Remove)
B) RESTART the Roku (Settings/System/System restart/Restart) <-- MUST DO THIS HERE!!!
C) Re-install the NFL app
(If you dont restart after removal, settings/cached data associated with the app are left behind and it wont be a clean re-install)
3) If you want, re-subscribe directly from the NFL next time (to be able to better manage account issues)
Unfortunately this is likely an account authentication issue between your Roku Pay-based subscription and the NFL's subscription database/bug in the app - you should report the issue to both Roku and the NFL.

Nfl.com help center is of no use. there advice was executed and failed many times. They keep telling me to hit restore purchases but it comes back and tells me there are no purchases to restore. It works on my PC and my Ipad. The problem is definately with the NFL app on Roku.
additional information about Gamepass. It also works fine on my FireStick. Looks like I will be going back to it from Roku. They wont resolve my issue.
It has worked fine on Roku in the past. Just not this year.
I signed up for nflgamepasses free 7 day trial using the roku interface and I discovered I was instantly instantly charged 9.99. Now I can't access the service from my TV because it informs me that I need to sign up for the service....crazy. So I see your solution to this is to remove the service and and then reinstall it after canceling the subscription, which seems like a must since removing it using my remote * key option doesn't appear as an option. So, 1. What happened to three trial?, and 2. If I sign up again will I be charged again for the " FREE TRIAL"? Totally triggering much angst. Please help.
Thanks for the post.
