For the first time ever, everyone in the world will be able to watch an NFL game live, as it’s happening. Yahoo has partnered with the NFL to broadcast and stream this year’s edition of the NFL International Series game in London, between the Buffalo Bills and Jacksonville Jaguars. Now that may not seem to be the most exciting game in the world, but what’s more important, is what it means for the possibility of future broadcasts.
The NFL has always been committed to being at the forefront of media innovation. Through this partnership with Yahoo—one of the world’s most recognizable digital brands—we are taking another important step in that direction as we continue to closely monitor the rapidly evolving digital media landscape.
No specific details have been released as to how you will be able to stream the game, however, it will be available “across devices and for free.” We can only assume that you will be able to stream it regardless of the device, and with the help of one of Yahoo’s applications, or possible the official NFL application.
We’re thrilled that the NFL has chosen Yahoo for this historic opportunity. It marks a significant change in the way users can access this amazing content. The NFL and Yahoo have both long engaged football fans around the world. Our partnership provides the ultimate football experience—with digital availability, designed for the modern fan.
For those living in the specific area markets for Buffalo and Jacksonville, the game will remain available via over-the-air television, and will be televised at 9:30 AM EST. At least you won’t have to worry about any blackout restrictions, or anything of that nature.
