NFL's long-rumored paid streaming service NFL+, may just be arriving as soon as this July.
The service is expected to give fans the opportunity to stream games and NFL content anywhere live on their phones and tablets. According to Sports Business Journal, the NFL streaming service will cost just $5 USD monthly, though it is possible that the pricing structure could change.
The games fans will be able to stream on their phones and tablets will be restricted to those made available on local TV. Previously, these games were distributed on tablets and laptops via Yahoo, but the deals have since retired and it appears that the NFL is retaining these rights. It has also been reported that the league has been in talks with other media companies like Apple and Amazon about purchasing an equity stake in NFL+. Existing streaming services like Amazon Prime and Apple TV+ are already streaming sports games, tapping into the sports industry.
Stay tuned for the launch of NFL+.
