NFL Expands Streaming Options with Facebook and CBS All Access

Watching your favorite pro football teams just got a little easier thanks to CBS All Access and Facebook.

CBS recently confirmed that CBS All Access customers will indeed be able to enjoy the network’s Thursday Night Football coverage on their live local channel streams. While CBS does not carry every Thursday Night game (those rights are split between CBS, NBC, Amazon, and the NFL Network), this still allows more NFL fans easier access to those match-ups, which are often blacked out by other streaming services.

For the more casual football fans, Facebook and the NFL recently announced a partnership that will allow fans to watch highlights and recaps of playoffs, over 256 regular season games, and the Super Bowl via Facebook Watch. This deal will allow fans more convenient access to NFL updates, as they can check out the latest plays and browse their social media feed at the same time.

Be sure to let us know how you stream tonight’s Bears vs. Packers game—does this announcement make CBS All Access your new choice for CBS’ Thursday Night games, or are you sticking with Amazon’s Prime Video live streaming?
