Twitter has signed a multi-year deal with the US National Football League (NFL) to live-stream pre-game coverage as well as a 30-minute show on the social media site.
The show will be aired on Twitter five days a week during the NFL season, covering news, highlights and pre-game updates.
Twitter already has a partnership with the NFL to broadcast game highlights and analysis. Twitter had partnered with the NFL for streaming Thursday night games during the 2016 regular season, but last month Amazon outbid them to acquire the rights to live-stream the games.
