AMC Networks announced Tuesday that it will start streaming the NFL from April through August, beginning with Sunday’s game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Pittsburgh Steelers at FedEx Field.
The announcement comes a day after the NFL said it was in talks with AMC Networks about its upcoming partnership with the cable giant.
The NFL announced last week that it would be launching a pay-per-view on AMC Networks beginning in August.
The NFL is the first network to offer NFL games over its video streaming service, and AMC Networks, a division of Time Warner, has been developing a platform that would allow viewers to watch NFL games on the web.
AMC Networks has said it hopes to debut the streaming service by the end of the year.
As of now, AMC Networks is the only network that allows viewers to view NFL games through the Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Apple TV Stick, and Fire TV Stick.
The company also said it is working with Fox Sports to deliver NFL-specific programming on the Fox Sports Go platform, but it did not provide any details on how Fox Sports would work with AMC.
AMC is also developing an exclusive NFL-themed streaming app for the Apple Watch.
AMC, however, is also working with Hulu on a separate product that would let users stream a lot of NFL games from the company’s own streaming service.
For the most part, AMC has said that it is not in a position to launch a new streaming service at this time.
That could change as AMC Networks and the NFL continue to work out how to work together.
AMC said it expects to announce an upcoming launch date at a later date.
