Archive NFL videos, highlights, analysis in NFL Now app
The National Football League (NFL) is introducing a new online streaming initiative for fans of the sport, that allows them to follow their teams on any digital platform they choose, alongside its existing apps. NFL Now is billed as a digital network that offers fans the ability to watch a range of video content produced by the teams as well as NFL Films, as the organization moves to embrace Internet distribution.
Though it stops short of offering live streams of matches to users of the free app, it will provide video highlights, analysis, and archive content, with fans able to narrow down content by teams and specific players, reports The Verge. A paid premium service called NFL Now Plus will be abailable, providing more "video content and features" for an undisclosed monthly fee.
