Probably as an approach to spread the word wider, The NFL wants to sell streaming rights for Thursday Night Football whereas high Tech companies like Apple, Google and Amazon are all bidding among the others. Based on a Variety reports that the NFL believes all three of those tech giants will soon try to acquire Thursday Night Football’s streaming rights, though it sounds like none have done so just yet.
But Apple inc and Google Inc are said to be closing in on a deal to see the streaming right falling to their court.
Another Reuters previous report was that the two major bidders were in a discussion for the three NFL games being played in London ahead of next season, so that’s where the fact comes in that both would want what is quiet adventurous. Amazon’s name became the new adder which seek to expands its own ground wider than its scope.
The Thursday Night Football games will be broadcasted by NBC and CBS respectively until the next two years ahead. Both of these TVs all have the streaming rights which is available to cable subscribers.
That means the streaming rights package for Thursday Night Football isn’t quite as special as it might sound, but it’s still a big deal. Based on news, the NFL streaming came into existence just this previous year while Yahoo was the first to stream back in October. So Thursday Night Football will be among the very first set of games offered online for people without cable subscription and NFL games would make a pretty great way to get attention to a young streaming service, like Amazon Prime or YouTube Red, or a new one, like the TV service Apple is supposedly interested in launching.
As its assumed that more games could be dividend among these companies since there are just lots bidding and NFL would try expanding its own width.
