Yahoo Pays 10 Million for Rights to Stream a Single NFL Game

This partnership will bring the NFL’s International Series game in London, between the Buffalo Bills and Jacksonville Jaguars on October 25, to Yahoo properties globally, including Yahoo, Yahoo Sports, Yahoo Screen and Tumblr, which attract more than one billion monthly users.

So it's a single game. Between two teams that most people don't care about. At 9:30 in the morning. That cost Yahoo 10 million dollars for the streaming rights. Makes me think that it's going to be a while before we see anything like NBA League Pass, MLB TV, or NHL Center Ice available in the US.

But that's okay. Last NFL season I signed up for NFL Game Pass  so that I could stream Red Zone on Sundays. Only catch was I had to VPN my traffic through Hola to sign up since the service isn't available in the US, but overall things worked pretty well. I'll have to write up a tutorial on what I did as we get closer to football season.
