NFL on Apple?

You might be able to live stream Thursday Night Football next year. The NFL has put the word out to digital streaming companies such as Amazon, Google, Yahoo and Apple that this is what they want – and it’s up for grabs – on a non-exclusive basis, of course.


The traditional TV rights will be given to whoever wins the proposal winning war between CBS, ESPN, Fox, NBC and Turner Sports.
The live streaming would feature the same ads and live events as the traditional TV show.


Currently, CBS produces all “Thursday Night Football” games as part of its estimated $300 million NFL deal. NFL Network simulcasts the games and carries eight games exclusively as part of its current partnership with CBS, which began in the 2014 season.


Could you see a benefit to watching Thursday Night Football through a digital streaming service?
