CBS Corp. announced on Monday that it has expanded its streaming deal with National Football League that will allow the company to include mobile users and broadcast NFL seasons through 2022.
The agreement will also help the NFL to increase its reach among people who aren’t watching the league on television. NFL has been making efforts to boost its reach by using different platforms amid declining ratings.
The New York-based media company said that subscribers will be able to watch 2018 NFL live on its All Access video platform that include smartphones and tablets as well as connected devices like Apple TV and Roku Players. Viewers can access the live streaming by downloading the CBS app for Android and iOS.
NFL has inked similar deals with different companies such as Verizon Communications (VZ) and Twenty First Century (FOXA).
Earlier this year, Fox made a $3 billion agreement to broadcast Thursday night NFL games for the next five seasons.
