CBS All Access to add live NFL games to its Apple TV app
CBS and the National Football League announced Monday an extended streaming agreement that will see all NFL games on its CBS All Access streaming video service through 2022. CBS All Access is available as a standalone app on Apple TV.
The entire 2018 NFL schedule, highlighted by Super Bowl LIII, will be streamed live on CBS All Access, and will additionally include the ability for TV Everywhere subscribers (those who have an existing pay TV subscription) to stream the games on mobile, too.
Previously, streaming NFL games on mobile devices was limited to Verizon subscribers, but Verizon and the NFL agreed to a new deal late last year that allows for other services and carriers to offer access to NFL games on tablets and smartphones through the Yahoo Sports, go90, and NFL apps.
CBS says that its All Access subscribers will receive NFL on CBS games that are broadcast in their local market. NFL on CBS content will also be made available on mobile for CBS’s cable, satellite, telco, and streaming service partners.
CBS has been offering access to NFL on CBS games through its All Access subscription service since 2016, but prior NFL seasons were only able to be streamed on TVs, tablets, and computers.
CBS All Access is available for $5.99 a month with limited commercials and $9.99 a month for the commercial-free plan.
