The National Football League (NFL) is exploring ways to bring free internet radio to its games, according to a statement from a Time Warner Cable spokesman.
The statement from David Stanczyk, a Time of America spokesman, also said that the company is working with a group of NFL teams to develop a “internet-powered broadcast” network.
It’s unclear whether the NFL would be the first sports league to experiment with the use of internet-powered radio.
The San Francisco 49ers, New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers all have radio teams.
The Los Angeles Rams, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Philadelphia Eagles also have internet-based teams.
But none of them have launched a broadcast network, which means fans can listen to a broadcast of the games online without having to download a station.
Stanczyk’s statement also said the NFL was exploring a “digital content strategy” that would include “live streaming, video on demand, digital video content and a variety of other digital initiatives.”
