The National Football League now has its own streaming service.

On Premiere Monday, the NFL is launching NFL+ for $4.99 per month or $39.99 per year.

A subscription will include all out-of-market Precision games, previously available with a subscription to NFL Game Pass for only $99.99 per year. The NFL preseason began on August 4 with the Jacksonville Jaguars facing the Las Vegas Raiders. Since this will be a nationally broadcast game, it will not be shown on the NFL+.

NFL+ will also include live mobile device access to local and prime-time regular season and post-season games, Previously available for free on the Yahoo Sports app.

NFL+ marks the first time the NFL has operated its own streaming service, giving leagues a new futuristic platform for potentially showing exclusive games., Major League Baseball and the National Basketball Association both already sell subscriptions for their streaming services that include out-of-market games.

NFL+ will not initially include special regular-season games, but it will ultimately depend on how audience habits develop over the coming years, said Hans Schroeder, executive vice president and chief operating officer of NFL Media. the league is closed its local broadcast rights for the next seven to 11 years,

“This is another option that we will consider along with all our other options,” Schroeder said. “We’re really excited about where NFL+ can go. As the media and sports distribution business continues to change and grow, there are so many different factors.”

NFL is in the process of renewing its Sunday Ticket package and will select a streaming partner, possibly Apple or Amazon, by the fall. That package costs about $300 per year and provides access to all out-of-market games on Sundays. DirecTV has owned the Sunday Ticket rights since 1994, but is not bidding for the rights after this season’s current contract expires. The length of his new Sunday Ticket deal is still to be determined, but the league wants to give a new teammate “the right runway to succeed”, Schroeder said in an interview.

Added NFL+ Benefits

In addition to games, NFL+ will include NFL Network Shows On Demand and archived NFL Films programming.

For $9.99 per month or $79.99 per year, the NFL is also selling NFL+ Premium. That subscription includes full and condensed game replays and access to the “All-22” movie, a bird’s eye view of the game that coaches use to see how all 22 players progress in a given play.

“We look forward to continuing the growth of NFL+ and deepening our relationships with fans of all ages and demographics, giving them access to a tremendous amount of NFL content, including some of the most valuable content in the media industry: NFL Commissioner Roger Live” Goodell said in a statement.
