fuboTV, the sports-focused virtual MVPD, said it has inked deals to carry the NFL Network and NFL RedZone service as the pro football league heads into the regular season tonight as the Kansas City Chiefs visit reigning Super Bowl champion, the New England Patriots.
NFL Network joins Fubo Premier, fuboTV’s base package that is currently selling for the promotional price of $34.99 per month.
Meanwhile, NFL RedZone, the live look-in channel that appears on Sundays during the league’s regular season, is being added to a relaunched version of fuboTV’s Sports Plus package, which sells for $8.99 per month and includes 14 other sports channels.
fuboTV said customers who get NFL Network and NFL RedZone will also soon get authenticated TV Everywhere access to Watch NFL Network (via NFL.com and apps for connected TVs and mobile devices). Fubo Premier subs are also in line to get access to NFL Network’s VOD library.
“The NFL is constantly looking for more ways to offer NFL content on platforms where fans are spending increasing amounts of time,” Hans Schroeder, COO of media and business for the NFL, said in a statement. “We’re excited to offer NFL Network and NFL RedZone through fuboTV, a service focused on serving sports fans on digital platforms that will provide yet another option for keeping up with NFL Network’s 24/7 NFL coverage and catching RedZone's action-packed Sunday afternoon experience.”
“As our line-up has evolved, our mission remains the same: to offer the most popular sports in the world for the lowest price,” added David Gandler, co-founder and CEO of fuboTV. “Today we add a brand that is the epitome of premium sports content. NFL Network solidifies our basic bundle, and fans now have the option to add NFL RedZone along with 14 other sports channels to their subscription – making sure they don’t miss football’s most exciting moments every Sunday afternoon.”
