The NFL is looking to stream games online for its members.
And now that it’s official, it’s also looking to make sure fans have access to the best stock market information available.
The NFL announced today that the league’s league office will stream the entire season on NFL Now, a live streaming service that is part of a partnership between the NFL Network and ESPN.
“We are excited to add the NFL Now platform to the NFL’s digital offering,” NFL Chief Product Officer Jon Steinberg said in a statement.
“The NFL is an important part of our digital strategy, and the NFLNow platform will bring the NFL content to fans across all platforms and platforms across platforms.”
As part of the deal, the NFL is offering fans access to a weekly NFL podcast and a weekly live broadcast of every NFL game in HD on NFL NOW.
The NFL will also stream the regular season live on ESPN, and it will stream two Super Bowl LI games in HD in 2017, with a third game to be shown in HD later in 2017.
“We know we can’t compete with the quality of the live stream that the NFL now has in its live stream platform, but we are excited about the partnership that the company has with ESPN,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in the statement.
“Our goal is to continue to provide our fans with the most up-to-date and comprehensive NFL content.”
The partnership with ESPN marks the first time that the two companies have worked together.
Earlier this month, the two media companies signed a new multiyear deal to televise more than 300 games, starting with Super Bowls, through 2021.
While there are no specific details on how many games will be streamed or on what platform, the company said it is aiming to stream at least a dozen of the games in 2017 and 2018.
The NFL has previously announced that it is planning to stream every game online by the end of 2020, with the goal of streaming every game by the 2022 season.
In addition to its partnership with the NFL, the league also announced plans to partner with Amazon Prime Video and Hulu to stream all of the NFL games in the future.
