More Apple TV news, as CBS Sports has announced big news for American football fans who own Apple’s little square hockey puck. (Is it wrong to mix sports metaphors? – Ed.) In addition to two regular season and four playoff games, the eye network will also stream Super Bowl 50 to the Apple TV.
CBS Sports will stream more NFL ON CBS game coverage than ever this season, including two regular season games, four playoff games, and Super Bowl 50 from Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. Streaming coverage will be available on laptops, desktops and tablets at CBSSports.com and on televisions through select Connected TV devices, including Xbox One, Apple TV, Chromecast, and Roku® players and Roku TV™ models. All of the NFL ON CBS games that will be streamed live will be available online and on OTT devices for free with no authentication required.
The first streaming broadcast for the year will be the New York Jets-Miami game from London (Oct. 4, 9:30am ET). Thanksgiving Day will see CBS stream the Carolina-Dallas game (Nov. 26, 4:30pm ET), that will mark the first time the CBS Sports broadcast of a Thanksgiving Day game is streamed live.
The entire AFC playoff schedule will be streamed, including the Wild Card, Divisional, and Championship games. (FOX has the NFC, and hasn’t made any streaming announcements as yet.) On Sunday, February 7, CBS Sports will live stream their exclusive broadcast of Super Bowl 50.
“We’re very excited to offer more NFL ON CBS streaming coverage across more digital platforms than ever before,” said Jeffrey Gerttula, Senior Vice President and General Manager of CBS Sports Digital. “All NFL fans will have access through their computers, tablets and now Connected TVs to two regular season games for the first time in addition to all of the AFC playoff action, culminating with a truly historic Super Bowl.”
Additional details of the streaming coverage for each game will be announced at a later date.
