    A Netflix Christmas?

    When did they sign this Netflix deal....I never heard anything about that?

    Not sure what the league is trying to do with all these silly streaming services.

    It's like they're blacking out games nobody wants to watch in the first place.

    They basically just signed it.

    They are doing it for money.

    People will watch, it's the NFL.

        Yea, I have it.

        As well as Hulu, Acorn, Britbox, Prime, PBS Masterpiece, and Spectrum.

        Most people don't have the array of what I have though.

          Hulu has doubled in price since I first signed up...I might start looking for an alternative.

            No I don’t and I won’t get it. I have direct tv and no other streaming services.

                Broadcast TV is a dying medium. It’s all going to be streaming in the not-too-distant future. We cut the cord when DirecTV lost the Sunday Ticket. YouTube TV is better in a lot of ways.

                    NFL’s Netflix move is another blow to the NBA

                    The NFL has taken Christmas from the NBA. Even this year, after claiming it wouldn’t, the NFL did it.

                    The NFL’s 2024 pivot to Netflix becomes even more problematic for the NBA.

                    In past years, the Christmas games were on networks that allowed for the flipping of channels from the football game to whichever basketball game was on, during commercials or halftime. With the NFL games on Netflix, it will be harder to hit the “previous channel” button during breaks.

                    For most smart TVs, someone watching the NFL games would have to exit the Netflix app (which frankly can be a launch-codes pain in the ass to do under normal circumstances) and migrate to wherever they get their collection of TV channels.

                      Since I already subscribe to all the streaming platforms the NFL is partnering with (and have for a quite some time)...it's no change for me.

                      This is the logical progression of the most popular sports programing in the US. By a HUGE margin.

                      People that whine about having to....*GASP*....pay for entertainment that they want is ridiculous.

                        I would agree if the entertainment we have to pay for was struggling, but it’s not just ask its players and owners. They’re just greedy SOB’s.
                        It’s okay though, I only watch the Bills and only playoffs. I’d much rather watch a good movie on TCM.

                          Community antenna, cable, whatever you want to call it, was designed to be commercial free.

                          That's what one was paying for.

                          Now all it is are channels with tons of commercials that actually reduce content.

                          So why not just offer the NFL in one lump sum?

                          What the **** does Netflix have to do with sports?

                          Nothing.

                          Until now.

                          And ironically, I have an small antenna strapped to the post on the roof where my DTV dish used to sit.

                          It gives me 58 channels. Some good....some bad, but many of the rerun channels only show a fraction of the commercials that the pay-tv channels do.

                          Some have none at all.

                            I used to have a lot more streaming. Criterion was great for classic films and then Showgirls (yes, that Showgirls) aired and so I decided to cancel as they lost the plot of why people subscribed to them. Hulu and Disney+ were great for a while but they started jacking up the price. Netflix? I got a trial to watch RRR and All Quiet on the Western Front. RRR is still the weirdest and yet most enjoyably odd thing I have ever watched. AQOTWF, it missed the point. Captured the hell but missed the point. Then I canceled. FUBO and Peacock? Had those, but really I am going back to watching pirate streams on facebook. I just can't envision paying 400 dollars for Sunday ticket again or any of the streaming services.

                              We have about 60 in KC metro, take away the 10 to 15 televangelist and home shopping one and you get 40 or so networks. One has history channel content from when the history channel actually had history on it, a couple show classic cinema, more than a few show court tv type stuff. Svengoolie and old MST3K and Star Trek TOS and TNG are on another.
