Currently, NFL Sunday Ticket subscribers are able to access every NFL game no matter where they live in the country. Though it is not clear as to how the new streaming platform will work, it’ll be interesting to see what deal is made between the NFL and outside entities for streaming rights. Also, we can only hope that as viewers we aren’t forced to spend a fortune to watch all of these games. Surprisingly, the NFL is planning to ask for anywhere from $2 billion to $2.5 billion for these streaming rights.
