The NFL will start to stream its games over the internet this season.
The league said it plans to launch the streaming service later this year.
The new streaming service will be called NFL Pass and it will stream games on demand for free for current and former players.
It will also allow fans to watch games via mobile devices.
The NFL has not announced how much the service will cost, or if it will require any fees.
But in a statement, the league said the service would allow fans “to watch the games live, for free, without a cable or satellite subscription.”
The service will also have “a subscription-based payment model that allows you to watch up to 30 games per month for a monthly fee.”
The NFL also announced it would begin offering the streaming option to former players who are eligible to become active-duty personnel.
The team that drafted you, for example, will be automatically connected to the service.
In a statement Monday, NFL vice president of product development Mark Rosen said the league would also make its games available to fans who don’t have access to a cable box or satellite dish.
Rosen also said the streaming plan would allow NFL players to “be fully engaged” in their jobs.
“This will allow them to be fully engaged with the games, to be on the field with the players, and also have access and access to other aspects of the NFL like on-field social media,” Rosen said.
“We are working with the teams to enable these benefits for players, including the use of a mobile device to stream games.”
