The National Football League is a big deal in the United States, and, apparently, so is news that the organization plans on streaming games taking place not in the United States.
According to a report published by Reuters, the NFL has plans to stream every game it will play in London next season. Which is a total of three. The report says that the NFL is looking for a partner with the streaming, and that Apple, Google, and others are all options. Apple, for its part, has expressed interest in the idea of buying the rights to the streams for the games, which would mean that the Apple TV would be a likely destination for the content.
Talks like these aren’t new, at least not anymore, as earlier reports had claimed that Apple was in talks with the NFL to stream Thursday Night Football, where Yahoo, Google, and other companies were also competing for that right.
Live streaming games, any sport event really, has become a big deal, and a major focus on these giant organizations behind the events. It’s no surprise that the games taking place in London will want to be viewed across the pond, so it will be interesting to see which company NFL tags to partner up with.
