CBS has extended its streaming deal with the NFL to 2022 and expanded the terms to include access on mobile devices through its CBS All Access subscription service. Now, users who pay for All Access, which starts at $5.99 a month, or have an existing cable login supported by CBS will have access to NFL season games plus the Super Bowl on iOS and Android via the CBS app. The games will also be available on the web via CBS.com and a number of set-top boxes, smart TVs, and game consoles.
While All Access subscribers have had access to CBS-owned NFL streams since the 2016 season, this is the first time those streams will be available on mobile devices. It’s important to clarify that All Access users won’t have access to every single NFL game, which is what exclusive cable packages like NFL Sunday Ticket offer, but only access to games broadcast in their specific local market.
