Netflix to broadcast NFL games in landmark three-year deal

Netflix Inc. has struck a significant deal with the National Football League (NFL) in the United States to broadcast live football games, marking the streaming giant’s bold foray into live sports.

As part of the three-year agreement, Netflix will air two NFL games on Christmas Day, starting this year, with plans to host at least one game on the same holiday in both 2025 and 2026. This partnership represents Netflix’s first venture into broadcasting live football, the most popular sport in the United States, according to Bloomberg news

Financial details of the deal remain private, but the arrangement indicates Netflix will pay approximately $150 million for the rights to broadcast the two games this year. The financial terms are expected to be similar if the company secures two games in the following year.
