That made it the most-streamed authenticated event ever on the app, beating out even Game 7 of the 2014 World Series.

Twitter Plans Bigger Push for Live Events, Bid on NFL Game

As part of the push into live events, Twitter earlier this year bid on the right to the NFL’s first streaming-only broadcast, according to a person familiar with the matter. Yahoo ultimately won the rights to the Oct. 25 game between the Buffalo Bills and Jacksonville Jaguars.

NHL Agrees to Pricing Changes to Settle Antitrust Lawsuit Over TV Packages 

The proposed settlement comes about a month after a New York federal judge agreed to certify a class action that contends that consumers have been forced to pay too much for out-of-market NHL and Major League Baseball games — and that telecasts get blacked out for in-market games thanks to restrictive agreements with the leagues’ broadcasting partners. The lawsuit also names Comcast and DirecTV as defendants, and since sports represent one of the major reasons why consumers don’t cord-cut, the prospect of injunctive relief holds big ramifications to the television industry.
