Watching live streaming football is clearly the future. I see there are complaints about buffering and such but the overall experience will get better and better; Netflix wasn’t all that reliable five years ago either.
This is something of a publicity move of course; the NFL streams games for a fee elsewhere in the world. They simply don’t stream the games in the U.S. which is broken and wrong. But I get it: this is a trial to see how the inevitable move away from broadcast TV, their current cash cow, will work.
