Massucci's Take: NFL starts offering online football

Anthony Massucci

Just a couple of years ago, the only practical way to get your Sunday afternoon National Football League fix was to watch CBS (CBS) or Fox (NWS). To get additional games, you'd have to go to your local sports bar or pay up for your own DirecTV (DTV) NFL package.

Now, there is another way. Last week, the National Football League made live games available online for the first time. For now, the service is only available for Manhattan residents who don't have satellite access, but it may be offered as early as next year to others in the U.S. who don't have satellite access, an NFL source told DailyFinance.
