CBS to stream two 2015 regular season NFL games for free

Wednesday September 2nd, 2015

CBS has announced it will stream two regular season NFL games for free during the 2015 season.

Viewers will be able to stream the two contests without needing to provide authentication, subscription or cable provider information, marking the first time that anyone with a computer will be able to tune in to an NFL game.

The two available games will broadcast the Jets facing off with the Dolphins in London on Oct. 4, and the Cowboys playing host to the Panthers on Nov. 26, Thanksgiving Day.

Yahoo will also stream the matchup between the Bills and the Jaguars on Oct. 25 in London, for which it reportedly paid $20 million to secure the broadcasting rights.

CBS also streamed the Super Bowl in 2012, and will stream four playoff games plus the Super Bowl this year as the network seeks to expand its online sports coverage.
