NFL’s Sunday Ticket is widely known for their offered subscription among DirecTV subscribers, in which allows fans to tune into NFL games that aren’t available to them.
As of mid-March, the NFL’s deal with DirecTV could be nearing an end. “We’re having great discussions with DirecTV and AT&T,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said. “We’ve had a 25-year partnership and we want to continue that partnership, but we also are looking to see how we can change the delivery.”
Goodell wants the games to be available on platforms other than the television (which is what the NBA does). Right now, the league has eight streaming packages–a non-exclusive deal with Verizon and a Thursday night deal Amazon.
The NBA has a league pass which offers every game to fans, nonetheless, blacks out channels they stream on if you don’t have a subscription with them. You can also use the subscription to view the games on your mobile phone, which is what presumably kindled Goodell’s idea.
“We’re looking to make sure that we continue to deliver this package, which is a premium package of great content. We want it delivered on several different platforms.”[via Yahoo! Sports] Follow @EaglesFeast
