NFL adds digital video service
June 7, 2014 - Chris Pugh
The NFL is adding a digital video service specifically for those who like to stream their television.
NFL Now, slated to start in August, will be available on the Internet through Verizon, Microsoft and Yahoo! as well as Amazon Fire TV, Kindle Fire and the Roku video streaming units.
"Our agreements with Amazon and Roku drive towards our goal of securing the broadest possible distribution for NFL Now at launch, providing fans a robust NFL video experience no matter what platform or device they are using." said Brian Rolapp, Executive Vice President of Media for the NFL in a press release.
Although NFL Now is not slated to show live games, the service is unique because it offers customized news and videos for its users' favorite teams and fantasy players as well as a large college of on-demand video.
