Who isn’t ready to bid for the rights to stream NFL games? The current list is Google, Twitter, Amazon, Hulu, Netflix, Facebook…..and now possibly LinkedIn?!?!?!
The Microsoft-owned business social network, best known for displaying the career histories of tens of millions of people, may create or buy its own original video content shows, including the possibility of joining the parade of tech giants bidding on NFL games, according to a report in The Information.
A move by LinkedIn into video could boost engagement on the social network, and possibly allow the company to grow its subscription revenue.
LinkedIn was sold to Microsoft late last year for $26 Billion and was the largest acquisition in Microsoft’s history.
…it doesn’t sound too far fetched for Microsoft (notoriously late to the game) to become the latest tech giant to delve into the over the top streaming space.
