NFL, NBC to broadcast games on the internet. About time.
According to Street & Smith's Sports Business Journal, the NFL and NBC will broadcast 17 games live on the Internet. The first game will be the Thursday night game on Sept. 4 featuring the Washington Redskins and New York Giants. People talk about newspaper on their way out, how about TV. And as for the NFL, welcome to the 2000s. For all the money the league is rolling in, it's seems strange that it is so late to the Internet game. Major League Baseball has dabbled in streaming live games since 2002.
