Yesterday it was reported that the NFL and Verizon are close to striking a major new streaming deal.
Verizon will lose exclusive rights to air games on mobile devices (something that would be happening soon according to reports) according to two people who talked with Bloomberg.
This new service sounds a lot like a NFL Sunday Ticket service and that raises the questions of the DIRECTV deal. Currently, AT&T’s DIRECTV owns exclusive rights to the NFL Sunday Ticket but it has been rumored that the NFL is looking for ways to make it more accessible.
According to Bloomberg “An announcement is expected after all the related parties are informed.” That announcement could come as soon as next week or the NFL may hold off until after the season ends. According to reports, this deal has been in the works for months.
