NFL Opens Mobile Streaming to All Carriers and TV Services

Verizon to Stream NFL Games (Including Super Bowl)

Under the prior pact, Verizon has paid around $250 million per year ($1 billion total over the four-year span). As mentioned above, this deal isn't just for Verizon, and, going forward, all mobile carriers and network providers will be able to show all games - be it preseason, regular season, playoffs, or the Super Bowl - up until the 2022-2023 season. Verizon operates Yahoo, as well as AOL, which it purchased in 2015, through its Oath Inc. digital subdivision.

Through its digital and mobile properties, Verizon said it reaches more than 200 million unique viewers in the U.S.

"Verizon essentially gets multiplatform live-streaming rights to the entire National Football League schedule - with the exception of Sunday afternoon out-of-market games - which remain with AT&T's DirecTV Sunday Ticket", Jennifer Fritzsche, a Wells Fargo analyst, said in a note to clients.

The distribution of live matches through the Yahoo Sports portal and app means the games will be available to customers of any mobile operator in the United States, not just Verizon subscribers. "The NFL is a great partner for us and we are excited to take its premier content across a massive mobile scale so viewers can enjoy live football and other original NFL content where and how they want it".

Verizon announced the biggest content deal yet for Oath, the company's media group that includes Yahoo and AOL. Specifically, NFL postseason games will be available on Yahoo, Yahoo Sports, and Go90 (along with the NFL Mobile app) beginning no later than the conference championships on January 21.

"We have been confident in the value of our content", said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Verizon also receives commercial inventory to sell on its platforms as part of the contract and will remain an official sponsor of the NFL.

"Media is one of the major pillars for us now", Brian Angiolet, Verizon's global chief media and content officer, told ESPN. That will be in addition to the go90 and National Football League mobile app streaming options already available.

The NFL benefits here by getting to participate in streaming, as more consumers are bailing on traditional TV and cable services for a la carte streaming options.
