  • No, and I don't expect one any time soon. Some teams have started offering games and game highlights through iTunes TV Shows. Read carefully because what looks like a season pass to your favorite team's full games may end up a set of highlights from the season. The sports that have really taken to the on demand, customer oriented environment of the Internet have been the less popular sports. It allows them to reach much larger audiences without negotiating complex contracts with the cable companies. Since the NFL already has their cable contracts in place, I don't expect them to offer Internet content any time soon. It is possible that their existing, long term cable contracts have a clause preventing them from competing with the cable companies through online content.
