    Have two or three games each day every day, and put them all on NFL Network in 4K. Make NFL Network an annual subscription channel. Problem solved.

    Get Jeff Bezos to pay $100 billion for all the games to be played in private in his backyard. Even easier.

    The NFL kills itself if residential subscribers can't continue to buy out of market games. Streaming would be a disaster because there are thousands of people who still rely on Sunday Ticket to see their favorite team play every Sunday.

    The NFL's current deal is $1.5 billion per year for who cares how many viewers - they get $1.5 billion per year.
    The NFL will follow the money. If a flat rate offer from a streamer for exclusive carriage gives them a better return than a per subscriber offer sold through one or multiple carriers they will follow the money.

    Exactly. People keep trying to find some kind of logic here. The logic involves the networks and their willingness to spend $$$$. The consumer does not enter into this.

    Ugh, that will be fun flipping through games with 6 games on a streaming app, then the other 2 being blacked out so I have to use cable/satellite/antenna to watch the others. So hokey.

    Just like the NHL deal, everyone is celebrating saying how much cheaper the out of market packages are now that they are "included" in ESPN+. I think all these people are going to love seeing they need to pay for ESPN+ to have the privilege of paying for the out of market NFL and NHL games.

    I expect the price of ESPN+ to increase over the next couple of years

    You believe the package will be inclusive of all out of market NHL and NFL games?

    Yes I do.. They are probably banking of most people signing up for a possible bundle with all 3 services to get the one..

    No need, NFLST will undoubtedly be an add on option priced separately.

    Sunday Ticket was a Directv Product. The new agreement would not mention it

    That doesnt say much.. Directv has the rights for 2 more years regardless No one said in any of this they were losing it right away.. If they were keeping to 2033 like the others here there would have also been a press release about the billions ATT just paid to keep it beyond 2023

    I think DirecTV has the exclusive rights to Sunday Ticket until the end of the 2022 season. I wonder if there will be a buy out to get the rights to whomever will now own the rights sooner.

    Streaming, even with a strong internet connection, can be a little fussy. Add a packed bar with a well lubricated clientele, and hiccups won't be fun for the poor wait staff.

    Maybe I am wrong, but I don't see it going 100 % streaming. I guess we will see soon enough.

    the current NFL Sunday Ticket deal ends after two more seasons, why would anyone assume it changes hands before the 2023 season when all new deals beyond monday football expire (MNF expires after 2021 season)

    Contrary to the two radio guys broadcast, reading the NFL release, it sounds like Fox Sports and CBS are the ones with the rights to the Sunday games, and it sounds like Fox plans to offer then through its streaming service. If CBS does the same with Paramount+, you might be able to choose whichever service carries your team. In any case, it should be awful interesting, but sure sounds like you will have to sub to multiple platforms to get "sunday ticket". If ESPN+ does get it, we will be stuck at 720p.
