NFL ENTERS MEDIA STREAMING MARKETPLACE WITH ‘NFL+’

Owners were briefed about it during the league meetings in May, while Brian Rolapp, the NFL’s chief media and business officer, confirmed in a column for “Sports Illustrated” last week that it would be starting this season.

“NFL+” will allow fans to view out-of-market preseason games on all devices; local and national regular-season and postseason games on mobile devices; team and national radio feeds, NFL Network shows on-demand along with the NFL Films archive.

The league began offering a package in which fans could watch replays of games online — appropriately called “Game Rewind” — in 2009.

The league has also offered out-of-market preseason games either through a separate package or “Game Pass” in previous seasons.

“NFL+” will part of fans who purchase season tickets for their teams.

Goodell said recently the league is hoping to make a decision about “Sunday Ticket” and possibly selling an equity stake in NFL Media properties by the end of the year.
