Interestingly enough, “Monday Night Football with Peyton and Eli” will also be available to stream on mobile with NFL+, the NFL’s dedicated streaming service. What once was a niche product has immediately become an interesting proposition, especially for cord-cutters who don’t subscribe to any sort of cable provider.
In its first season, “Monday Night Football with Peyton and Eli” assisted in “Monday Night Football” delivering its most-watched season since 2010, and the alternate production was recognized with a Sports Emmy in May, winning Outstanding Live Television Series.
The alternate broadcasting experiment also spawned numerous copycats across sports, including the “KayRod” broadcast for baseball and a Joe Buck-helmed golf simulcast.
Nothing beats the original, though, and football fans across the globe can’t wait to see Peyton and Eli break down the action for another season.
