DIRECTV (DTV), Google Inc (GOOG): Nitty-Gritty From The Gridiron

Consumers who do not want to pay for a full year would likely be willing to buy a few games when they are traveling, so as not to miss their home team, or when there are games that have added significance for them. Single-game or single-team options are a fairly complex proposition when talking about satellite, but become far more straightforward when you include the power of Internet programming. While other networks are likely strongly opposed to the NFL allowing fans to “cut the cord,” the benefit to consumers and Google could be significant. While this story is in its infancy, Google investors should pay close attention, because nothing will put YouTube on the map as a cable competitor faster than the NFL.
