Bloomberg: Facebook rejects NFL Thursday night livestreams

The killer? Commercials and the NFL’s insistence on a TV-style advertising system for its streams. From the sounds of it, Zuckerberg and Co. weren’t exactly keen on early morning London-based NFL International games that come part and parcel with the package, either. Bloomberg says that the NFL is still trying to court other buyers for the Thursday night streams, though, specifically calling out Verizon as a potential suitor. – Timothy J. Seppala, Engadget
