What you need to know
- Apple TV+ is again in the conversation regarding NFL streaming.
- It comes with NFL about to renew nearly all of its media contracts.
An analyst has again floated the idea that the NFL could come to Apple TV+ as the NFL looks to renew "most if not all" of its media contracts.
From The Athletic:
One key opportunity is NFL Sunday Ticket, the slate of out-of-market games shown each week. Currently, this is held by DirecTV through the 2022 season. Analyst Neal Pilson notes that whilst this is expected to go Digital, companies like Amazon and Apple are probably not in the running. However, it's open season on Thursday Night Football. From Daniel Cohen:
Analyst Lee Berke, however, was much more chipper about Apple's NFL prospects, including Sunday games stating:
Whilst Apple TV+ has previously been mentioned as a home for both college football and the NFL, Apple's commitment to live programming and sports has been non-existent with Apple TV+ so far, unless you count Ted Lasso of course.
