Netflix Secures Three-Year-Deal With The NFL To Broadcast Christmas Day Game

Netflix is set to secure a significant three-year deal with the NFL to stream games on Christmas Day.

In a major coup for the streaming giant, the agreement will see two NFL games streamed this year, and at least one game in 2025 and 2026. This year’s Christmas lineup includes a game between defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City and Pittsburgh, followed by Baltimore versus Houston. This venture represents a departure from the NFL’s usual avoidance of midweek games on Christmas Day, introducing a fresh approach to the holiday schedule.

With the NFL recently adjusting its Christmas schedule to allow for mid-week games, Netflix emerged as a key player to secure broadcasting rights, with the NFL seeking an unprecedented opportunity for fans worldwide to enjoy NFL games on a single platform.

Netflix’s venture into live sports programming began last year with shows like “Quarterback,” and it will expand with upcoming series on wide receivers and a documentary on Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys. The streaming service’s transition to live sports coverage has been gradual, including recent forays into golf, tennis, and boxing events.

While some concerns exist regarding the shift to streaming platforms, NFL fans have consistently demonstrated engagement and support for the evolving landscape of sports broadcasting.
