While not a college football topic at the moment, it's probable such offerings will be coming our way very soon . . . with the refrain, "O Say Can You See?"
"NFL Launches NFL+, Its Own Streaming Service" - (Joe Flint, Wall Street Journal 7/26/2022). NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced, "The National Football League is entering the streaming wars with NFL+, a direct-to-consumer subscription service that will include access to live regular-season and playoff games . . . The new service can only be viewed using a tablet or mobile phone, not a regular TV set."
"Now is the time to plant (the NFL) flag in streaming . . . What we're really looking at now is future platforms. We have to be there with our content . . . NFL+ will offer subscribers a similar experience to traditional-TV users---access to live in-market Sunday afternoon games as well as national games in prime time on Sunday, Monday and Thursday nights . . ."
"The offering is ideal for cord-cutters who no longer have access to traditional television. The new streaming platform won't affect the streaming agreements the league has in place with its media partners. . . the new streaming service will be available in two tiers---NFL+ and NFL+ Premium, costing $4.99 and $9.99 a month, respectively."
"The league is also in talks with Amazon and Apple Inc. about acquiring the rights for its Sunday Ticket package when the current deal with Direct TV expires after the 2022-2023 season."
