ESPN Scores Live Streaming for Monday Night Football on Mobile

ESPN has reached an agreement with the National Football League (NFL) that expands its live streaming of Monday Night Football for ESPN subscribers to mobile phones.

The expanded mobile rights also include NFL highlights and extend through the duration of ESPN’s existing NFL agreement, which is at the end of the 2021 NFL season. ESPN already had the rights to stream its many NFL-branded studio shows—Sunday NFL Countdown, Monday Night Countdown, NFL Live and others—across such devices as Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Chromecast and more, while Monday Night Football streaming includes those platforms with the exception of mobile phones.

“Every day, tens of millions of fans turn to ESPN to stream events, view highlights and connect with the latest sports news and stories, so we’re thrilled that they will now be able to enjoy Monday Night Football and the latest NFL highlights as part of their experience on mobile phones as well,” said Burke Magnus, ESPN’s executive VP of programming and scheduling.
