The Kicks Wake Up Krew

Weekday Mornings 5:30 - 10:00

In a world full of streaming services, the National Football League has jumped on, or should I say tackled the bandwagon. They announced the launch of a brand new streaming service called “NFL Plus”. Of course just like every streaming service there are different levels depending on how much you want to spend. The base price is $4.99 a month and it will include access to all out of market pre season games. Your $4.99 a month will also get you access to games on your mobile device or tablet. Also according to CNBC if you bump up to “NFL Plus Premium” for $9.99 per month or $79.99 per year, that subscription includes full and condensed game replays and access to “All-22” film, a bird’s-eye view of the game that coaches use to see how all 22 players move in a given play. Here are some of the draw backs in my opinion. First of all I really don’t care about seeing pre-season games. I’m a die hard Atlanta Falcons fan, but I didn’t watch one of their pre-season games. The starters barely play if they play at all and it’s just kinda boring to me. Why would I pay $4.99 a month to watch something I don’t even watch for free on regular TV. Also the way I’m reading it, if the game is televised nationally then it won’t be available on “NFL Plus”. I just don’t think I see the value. I have a bunch of different streaming services, which I love, but I don’t think this one will be added to my list. My Falcons are always on TV here and I already pay for YouTube TV streaming so I think I’ll pass on this one, but if y’all want to get it and let me know how it is, I’ll be glad to listen. Check out all of the details from the CNBC article I read here.
