Facebook Rejects The NFL's Friend Request For Thursday Night Football
Facebook reportedly removed itself from the list of partners vying to stream NFL Thursday Night Football.By Carter Woodiel | April 2, 2016
Facebook may be the place to send messages or check in on your friends, but it reportedly won't be the place where NFL fans can watch Thursday Night Football.
The world's most popular social network was considered a top contender to land the streaming rights to Thursday night games, but Facebook pulled its name from consideration, according to a Bloomberg report.
So why is Facebook punting on the idea? Bloomberg says commercials were the turnoff. Facebook usually likes its content to be ad-free.
