Subscription-free streaming for NFL games this season

NEW YORK (AP) — The good news for football fans: It’s going to be much easier to watch NFL games online this year.

The league finally is dropping a requirement that viewers sign in with a cable or satellite subscription, in hopes of expanding its online audience at a time when TV ratings are declining. Though there are restrictions — no free streaming on smart TVs, for instance — the move marks a significant departure for sports. Other major professional leagues still require TV subscriptions for hometown teams.

The subscription-free games are to be available on the NFL app and the Verizon-owned Yahoo Sports, Tumblr and AOL apps in the U.S. On iPhones and iPads, the games also can be streamed on the Safari web browser.
