Ravens News Ravens fans are being told to watch their own Ravens games online, with the league now allowing users to pay a flat $1 per stream.
The move will allow fans to watch live games on their personal computers and consoles, and allow them to stream the games to other devices, including smartphones.
Users who want to stream live games will have to sign up with a streaming provider like VUDU or Apple TV to stream games to the Internet.
A few users have already started paying $2 per stream for a one-hour block of games, which should help reduce cord-cutters’ reliance on pay-per-view or streaming services.
But the move won’t be easy for anyone.
Live streaming apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Hulu will be able to stream Ravens games to consumers’ devices without paying for their access, but users will need to use an IP-address and pay for the access, which will likely require an additional $1 fee per stream, according to a statement from the league.
“For the first time in the history of the NFL, the Ravens are offering fans the ability to watch NFL games live on their devices for the very lowest possible price,” NFL Vice President of Football Technology Jeff Pash said in a statement.
“We’re excited to see the excitement on the Ravens’ and Ravens fans’ behalf.
The NFL has a proud history of providing a great viewing experience to fans, and this is a major step in the right direction.”
NFL games are usually watched on the big screen by tens of millions of people.
In 2016, the league announced it would begin charging subscribers to access their favorite NFL games, though that was just a temporary measure and will be phased out over time.
