NFL to reportedly launch its own streaming service in July

The NFL is expected to launch NFL+, an in-house streaming service, as early as July according to a report by Sports Business Journal which cites an unnamed source. The new service is said to provide live streaming games, but only to mobile devices, so streaming on TVs will still rely on things like Sunday Night Ticket. Those mobile streams used to be provided by Yahoo and cell providers mostly for free but those deals have since expired which will now allow the NFL to handle those streams itself. The service is said to cost $5 a month, but the source says the pricing structure may change. Live games on NFL+ will be limited to what you could otherwise see in your local TV markets.

    Maybe a new use for my 10 inch Fire tablet that’s currently stuck collecting dust in a drawer…. especially if I could find a way to cast the tablet video or screen mirror it to one of my Fire TV devices!

    No casting from that tablet.

      I was thinking, even before the NFL deal arose, of trying a recent packaged hack I’ve seen that involves installing the Google Play Store on the Fire Tablet and a bunch of related changes to essentially make it an Android tablet.

      From the various reports I’ve seen on that hack, it seems to work pretty well.
