NFL+ Could Broadcast Exclusive Games in Future Seasons

  • NFL+ is going up in price for the 2023 season after launching in 2022.
  • In future season, the league could put exclusive game broadcasts on the streaming service.

When the Kansas City Chiefs face the Detroit Lions on Thursday, football fans will have the option of watching the game on NFL+. But in future seasons, subscribing to the league’s streaming service might be a requirement to watch select matchups.

NFL+ has raised its prices for the 2023 season as it adds NFL RedZone and NFL Network to its live-content offerings. NFL+ will now cost $6.99 per month for its base tier, and $14.99 per month for NFL+ Premium. 

In 2022, the newly launched service allowed fans to watch local and primetime games on mobile devices and access other features like live game audio for all 32 teams.

More Games Coming?

Over time, NFL Media GM David Jurenka told Front Office Sports that the league has “some flexibility” to put games exclusively on NFL+ — meaning fans would have to pay for the service to watch a specific game. It is uncertain whether that exclusivity would start in 2024 or later.

“If it makes sense in terms of how we maximize reach and it’s complementary to the broader media model that we have, I think we’ll look at those things,” Jurenka said.

It’s clear the league has big plans for NFL+, and fans should expect the service to continue growing. “We have been envisioning NFL+ for many years now and (have been) very intentional with what we launched with last year and then what we’re adding with NFL Network and RedZone this year,” Jurenka explained.
