In a huge step for live sports on streaming services, NFL games on CBS will be available on the CBS All Access streaming platform beginning Sunday, Dec. 4, the network announced Thursday. Regular, postseason and preseason NFL on CBS games will stream on CBS All Access going forward.
NFL on CBS content will be available via the CBS All Access app and on CBS.com. Starting next season, NFL on CBS will be available via the NFL's digital properties as well.
This is the first time regular NFL programming will be available to stream via an on-demand streaming service. The multiyear deal kicks off this Sunday, with the two teams playing in the match yet to be named.
"We are very pleased that our partnership with the NFL has been expanded to include CBS All Access," said Leslie Moonves, CBS Chairman and CEO Les Moonves said in a statement. "Adding the most watched programming on television, to the most watched network on television, will be a powerful combination as we continue to grow CBS All Access into the future."
