By Steve WiebePosted Mar 11, 2019 05:17PMMore than a quarter-century ago, a man named Walter Payton Jr. was the league’s first quarterback to start in the regular season.
Since then, there’s been a handful of others, most notably Russell Wilson and Peyton Manning.
In 2018, the league announced the return of the Pro Bowl.
In 2019, the same year the Pro Football Hall of Fame honored the career of its all-time greatest player, a handful more quarterbacks will return.
And while the NFL might be the most popular sport in America right now, the game still needs to evolve in ways that help it become more appealing to a wider audience.
For starters, many fans still don’t have access to the games they’re watching, either because they can’t afford to rent a TV or have to rent an antenna.
While NFL Network broadcasts in more than 190 countries and territories, ESPN’s streaming service is the only one available in the U.S.ESPN also recently rolled out a new product for consumers that will allow them to watch their favorite teams on their devices.
For fans who don’t own an NFL app, there are already some options available for free on the iOS and Android app store.
In addition to the app, the NFL also announced a new, free-to-air broadcast in 2019, as well as a new slate of games that will be streamed to fans through the NFL Network.
The NFL has also partnered with HBO and Showtime to stream its games in HD to fans.
And it’s also made the leap from streaming to on-demand, where the NFL will stream content from its own streaming service starting in 2021.
It’s no secret that the NFL has struggled to stay relevant in the 21st century.
As a league that plays in a $3.3 billion annual revenue-sharing model, the industry has lost billions of dollars in 2016 alone.
But thanks to the help of the NFLPA and its members, the sport has come a long way since its last championship.
And that’s why, to help keep the game growing and more accessible to fans, the players union is partnering with the NFL to create the NFL Premium Pass.
The Premium Pass offers premium access to a handful or more of games from the 2018 season, including games against the Chicago Bears, Denver Broncos, Green Bay Packers, New England Patriots, New York Giants, Pittsburgh Steelers and San Francisco 49ers.
The league says that it will continue to invest in technology, especially in streaming technology, to make sure its games are more relevant.
So while the premium pass won’t offer access to every game, it will include a handful that fans can watch on their TV, smartphone or tablets.
And if you’ve got an NFL-issued phone, tablet or laptop, you’ll be able to stream the games through NFL Mobile.NFL Mobile is available to fans in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, the United Kingdom, Ireland, the European Union, Brazil, Russia, India, Turkey, South Korea, South America, Australia and the United Arab Emirates.
The premium pass is also available to anyone who owns a smartphone, tablet, or laptop that supports NFL Mobile’s streaming features.
While the NFL doesn’t have a specific release date for the Premium Pass, it’s expected to be available to customers in 2021 and beyond.
