The National Football League is reportedly preparing to launch a monthly subscription streaming service as early as July. Dubbed NFL Plus, the $4.99 monthly streaming service would be available on portable devices and offer the same live games currently broadcast on local TV networks.
The league previously streamed select games on laptops and other portable devices through agreements with third-party telecom carriers. Those agreements have since expired.
NFL owners discussed the platform at the ongoing summer meeting in Atlanta, according to Sports Business Journal.
The NFL currently airs games through multi-billion-dollar distribution deals with Fox, NBC, CBS and ESPN, in addition to an exclusive pact with Amazon Prime Video for NFL Thursday Night Football beginning this year.
