  • How did the NFL do with its matchups for Amazon, ESPN+, Netflix and Peacock?

    The NFL has many mouths to feed when it comes to their broadcasting partners and the regular season schedule. And it’s not just the traditional networks anymore.

    Netflix has entered the fray with a pair of Christmas games. The NFL announced that partnership, which will include Christmas games the next three years on Netflix, on Wednesday. Peacock, NBC’s streaming service, had a regular season game and a playoff game last season. The playoff game between the Miami Dolphins and Kansas City Chiefs set a record as the largest streamed event in U.S. history. ESPN+ also got a game last season, when the Atlanta Falcons played the Jacksonville Jaguars in London during Week 4, and was given another exclusive game this season.

    The NFL has many broadcast partners including its own NFL Network to satisfy with quality matchups, and a lot of subscriptions for fans if they want all the games. Here’s how the NFL handled handing out matchups to the streaming services this season.
