Cord-cutting football fans have a new way to watch NFL Network and NFL RedZone.
The league today announced a deal with Sony to stream content from NFL Network and RedZone via Playstation Vue.
The streaming service, launched by Sony last year, runs via Playstation consoles and other devices like Amazon Fire TV, Roku, and iOS and Android. It costs anywhere from $29.99 to $44.99 per month for live TV and on-demand shows, which includes sports content like ESPN, Fox Sports 1, Golf Channel, and more. It’s not clear which tiers will include the NFL channels — more details of packaging will be announced closer to launch, which will be before the upcoming 2016-17 season.
Both NFL Network, which provides 24/7 coverage of the NFL and airs Thursday Night Football games, and RedZone, a popular channel for fantasy football fans that shows every scoring play from every live game each Sunday during the season, traditionally air via cable companies. Viewers can stream content online, but that requires cable credentials.
But now with Playstation Vue, this gives fans a way to watch the channels without paying for a full cable package. Those who subscribe to Vue will also be able to watch NFL Network and RedZone via NFL.com, the NFL app, and NFL Mobile.
