The NFL is exploring its own streaming service.
NFL chief media officer Brian Rolapp said the service — tentatively called “NFL+,” — is “under consideration,” but he added that the league continues to talk to companies to license those rights.
The service would allow users to stream games from mobile devices without a cable subscription, for a potential monthly price of $5.
The service would include games, radio, podcasts, and team content.
The league previously distributed in-market games for free on mobile devices in a deal initially exclusive to Verizon and later broadened to include all mobile carriers.
The NFL also distributed games to tablets and laptops through Yahoo.
Rolapp said a decision to launch its own service for in-market games or license that content would occur well before the start of the 2022 season.
