According to a new report, Google, Apple and Amazon are all said to be interested in striking a deal with the NFL to stream Thursday Night Football games. As Variety reports, the NFL announced that it is in talks with unnamed potential partners interested in streaming rights for the Thursday night games. While no companies were named by the NFL, Variety's sources say Google may be among the interested parties:
The comments come after the NFL announced a two-year TV broadcast deal with CBS and NBC that will see the network splitting broadcast duties for Thursday games. Google was previously said to be in negotiations with the NFL for streaming rights to three matches that will take place in London later this year. It's not clear if those talks are still ongoing.
