If you’re a fan who just can’t get enough preseason action, the NFL has an offer for you.
NFL spokesman Dennis Johnson tells Michael Hiestand of USA Today that the league will show preseason games live online for the first time this year, with games available to anyone who pays $40 for a subscription.
Of the 65 games on the NFL preseason schedule, 54 of them will be available via live stream. The only 11 that aren’t available are the ones that will air nationally on NBC, CBS, Fox or ESPN. (The Hall of Fame Game will stream on NBCSports.com.)
Plenty of fans will see this and think $40 to watch preseason games is a rip off — and for that matter, 40 cents to watch preseason games is a rip off. But if you’re so excited about the return of football that you’re willing to pay to watch the preseason, you can now watch online, at less than a dollar a game.
