Fox Sports dances between free streaming and TV Everywhere

|By:, SA News Editor

Fox Sports (FOXA) will stream the Super Bowl live for free, but will restrict online access to the NFC postseason games to authenticated Pay-TV customers of Comcast, AT&T's U-verse, and Cablevision, according to Variety.

The fragmented approach by the network is in part due to its need to keep cable/satellite providers (DISH, DTV, CHTR, CVC, TWC) content that the TV Everywhere authentication model is moving forward - while at the same not limiting itself to advertising opportunities for the most-watched event of the year.

This will be the third year in a row that the Super Bowl has been streamed.
