Buffalo Bills fans who live in the Western New York region, rejoice! Thanks to a tweak in the contract between CBS and the NFL, local fans can stream Bills’ games on their mobile devices starting in 2018.
Via the CBS All Access subscription package, which costs only $5.99 monthly, fans will be able to stream any CBS content while grocery shopping, shoveling snow, raking leaves, or while traveling in WNY. (Note: Always keep your eyes on the road while driving, even when the Bills are about to score a touchdown.) While subscribers have been able to stream CBS content since the network partnered with the league in 2016, this is the first time that subscribers will have the option to do so via mobile devices.
13 of Buffalo’s 16 regular season games are on CBS.
The contract between CBS and the NFL has also been extended; it now expires in 2022. If you’re an out-of-market fan like me, this won’t help you; however, for those of you still in the Bills’ local broadcast area, this is a nice change.
