How to Watch NFL online in 2019
Television has changed drastically over the past couple of years. It might be the prime time for your viewing habits to toss up as well. Unless you actually enjoy paying hundreds of dollars of your hard-earned money to cable or satellite services, you should probably join the ever growing numbers of customers who have gladly “cut the cord” and are now watching their favorite TV shows and games on the internet and via streaming platforms.
If you have ever tried watching NFL broadcasts live you would know that it’s almost as hard as trying to find your way through a twisted and difficult maze. The platform and networks that air the NFL games, which are rated as the most watched sports on US media, are known to have struck a series of complicated rights deals with the NFL that allow them to broadcast particular matches on certain platforms in only a number of defined locations. To understand the specifics of these contracts and how they work is definitely beyond our understanding.
The weekend Sunday games are always an important deal, and are technically divided between the two media giants; CBS and Fox channel. NBS is given the rights to broadcast Sunday Night Football in addition to annual kickoff and primetime Thanksgiving games. ESPN is granted to host with the NFL Network airing games on Thursday nights, most of these games also being broadcasted on Fox, which gives CBS the next Super Bowl.
