Xmas Day NFL on Netflix?

May 13, 2024

Neftlix is heavily tipped to outbid the competition air two live NFL games on Christmas Day.

Writing on social media platform X, John Ourand – a veteran sports business reporter – said: “It looks like Netflix will wind up carrying the two NFL games scheduled for December 25th, per a bevy of sources”.

It’s not yet know how much Netflix would pay for the rights to the two games, but reports suggest it will be in the range of $100 million -$200 million.

“Amazon paid $100 million for the exclusive rights to that unwatchable Jets-Dolphins Black Friday rain-out contest. Would Netflix pay double for a package of two games, and the chance to own Christmas Day? More?,” speculated Ourand.

Netflix is showing a growing interest in major sports rights. Just this year it has picked up WWE rights in a $5 billion deal and hosted The Netflix Slam. In July the streaming platform will showcase a boxing match between Mike Tyson and Jake Paul.
