NEW YORK (AP) — CBS says NFL games are coming to its CBS All Access subscription service, making it a little easier for “cord cutters” to watch football without a pricey cable subscription.
The ability to easily watch live sports is one of most important reasons people pay for traditional cable bundles. NFL games are already streamed live , but in many cases still require a satellite or cable TV subscription.
Games aired on CBS will be available for streaming on tablets, to TVs and on cbs.com starting Sunday, if customers live in one of the 150 markets where the CBS All Access app comes with a live CBS feed. The games aren’t available on CBS’ phone app, as those mobile rights are exclusive to Verizon.
The multiyear deal includes regular, preseason and postseason games shown on CBS. Thursday night games will become available next year — CBS’ allotment is finished for this season — and so will the Super Bowl when CBS has it again in 2019.
