The NFL on Netflix? It could happen, the Wall Street Journal is reporting.
Disappointed by the ratings of its own cable network, the National Football League is contemplating a second Thursday night game for its weekly roster which would air on a different channel. The obvious home for a second Thursday game would be a major network or basic cable channel. However a 'person familiar with the league's strategy' said 'a nontraditional media partner' such as Google or Amazon is also a possibility, a claim that probably caused several suicides at NBC.
