Netflix will broadcast two NFL games next season for the first time in a landmark move that comes as the streaming giant bolsters its portfolio of sports-based programming, the network and the NFL announced on Wednesday.

The NFL said Netflix will show the league's two prestigious Christmas Day games in 2024, and would also air at least one game at the same time in the 2025 and 2026 seasons.

"Last year, we decided to take a big bet on live — tapping into massive fandoms across comedy, reality TV, sports and more," Netflix Chief Content Officer Bela Bajaria said in a statement.
