CBS Will Stream Several NFL Games for Free This Season, No Subscription Required - by Adam Epstein/ Stream Team/ Quartz/ qz.com


"Some said American football on the internet would never happen. The NFL and the major broadcast TV networks have one of the strongest business relationships in the world, and neither party would do anything to jeopardize that. Well, it appears that’s changing, perhaps faster than anyone thought.

CBS announced today (Sept. 1) that it will stream multiple regular-season NFL games, four playoff games, and the Super Bowl, for free, without requiring a subscription to cable TV. The games will be available on computers and tablets as well as streaming devices like Xbox One, Apple TV, and Roku.

First on the streaming slate will be the New York Jets and Miami Dolphins in London on Oct. 4. Then CBS Sports will stream the Carolina Panthers vs. Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 26...

...What’s clear is that the networks now fear losing NFL viewers to cord-cutting, and are increasingly finding ways to put games online without threatening the existing infrastructure. It’s likely we’ll see more and more games find their way online—NBC and Fox could follow CBS’s lead. That said, the whole landscape isn’t going to change overnight. If you’re thinking this means pay TV’s stranglehold on America’s most popular sport is in serious jeopardy—think again. The networks have a $5-billion-per-year deal with the NFL that runs through 2022."
