Let the games begin: NFL regular season game live on Yahoo!

That's an interesting one. NFL has been very restrictive with digital in the past, but in 2014 they started testing to distribute highlight clips with Facebook and Twitter, closed a (reportedly huge) deal with YouTube over highlights earlier this year, and now announced that they will stream a regular season game on Yahoo! - the deal is said to be worth at least 10 million. It will also be interesting to see how many people will tune in, and how performance will be with 10, 15 or more million concurrent streams.
