Steelers games via online streaming

The Sports Business Journal reports that NBC is going to make 17 NFL football games available "live" on the internet via online streaming, a first for the NFL. The online video will consist of NBC’s broadcast feed, with the call by Al Michaels and John Madden. The Wall Street Journal WSJ says that The NFL approached NBC wanting to make a deal to stream its games partly because NBC's nationwide broadcasts, which averaged 15.9 million viewers last season, make for a clean test of whether online availability will boost or shrink viewership. Steelers games that will be available:
  • @ Browns Sunday Sept. 14, 8:15 pm
  • @ Jaguars Sunday Oct. 4, 8:15 pm
