Starting today, certain CBS All Access customers will be able to stream NFL games that appear on CBS’s broadcast channel. The first games will be able to appear today, with the deal continuing to include other games.
This won’t work in markets where the CBS station is connected to All Access. Plus, it won’t work on mobile devices due to an exclusivity deal with Verizon. It will work on Android TV.
CBS All Access subscribers will be able to stream all NFL on CBS games, including Thursday Night Football on CBS, as well as pregame and halftime coverage live on CBS All Access platforms, including on tablets via the CBS App for iOS, Android and Windows 10, on connected device platforms, including Xbox One and Xbox 360, Roku Players, Apple TV, Chromecast, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, and PS4, and online at CBS.com in more than 150 markets across the U.S. CBS All Access subscribers will receive all NFL ON CBS games being broadcast in their local market.
The service starts at $6 a month, providing live streams of the CBS channel as well as on-demand content. This is the second deal that has been made with the NFL to stream content to Android TV, the first being Twitter.
