CBS All Access, the subscription VOD service, has extended an agreement to stream all “NFL on CBS” telecasts through the 2022 season. CBS will also expand NFL game streaming access for CBS All Access subs and TV Everywhere to include mobile devices beginning this season.
Previously, only Verizon had streaming access to NFL games — including the Super Bowl – on mobile devices. CBS began streaming NFL games to CBS All Access on during the 2016 season.
The entire 2018 “NFL on CBS” schedule, including Super Bowl LIII, will also be streamed live on tablets via the CBS App for iOS, Android and Windows 10, online at CBS.com, and on connected devices including Roku Players, Apple TV, Chromecast, Android TV, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Fire TV, Samsung Smart TVs and Amazon Channels.
All Access subscribers will receive the NFL ON CBS games that are broadcast in their local market.
In addition to extending CBS All Access streaming rights to mobile devices for the first time, NFL ON CBS authenticated streaming rights will extend to mobile for its cable, satellite, telco and vMVPD partners beginning this season.
“This deal enables us to deliver even more value to NFL fans, our subscribers and our distribution partners,” Marc DeBevoise, COO, CBS Interactive, said in a statement.
“The 2018 season will mark a new era for NFL fans with unprecedented access to NFL games across digital platforms,” said Hans Schroeder, COO of NFL Media and Business.
In addition to the NFL, CBS All Access offers more than 10,000 on-demand episodes spanning current shows from CBS Television’s primetime, daytime and late night lineup, as well as past seasons of select series and classic TV hits.
Exclusive original series include “Star Trek : Discovery,” “The Good Fight,” “Strange Angel,” and “No Activity,” in addition to upcoming original series, “One Dollar,” “The Twilight Zone,” and “Tell Me a Story.”
