NFL+ marks the first time the NFL has operated its own streaming service, giving the league a new future platform to potentially show exclusive games. Major League Baseball and the National Basketball Association already both sell subscriptions to their own streaming services that include out-of-market games.

NFL+ won’t initially include exclusive regular-season games but could eventually depending how viewership habits evolve in the years to come, said Hans Schroeder, executive vice president and chief operating officer of NFL Media. The league has locked up its local broadcast rights for the next seven to 11 years.

“It’s another option we’ll consider with all of our other options,” Schroeder said. “We are really excited about where NFL+ can go. As quickly as media and the sports distribution business continues to change and evolve, there are lots of different factors.”
