The Dolphins/Chiefs NFL wild-card game is exclusive to Peacock this year (with two exceptions, on NBC affiliates in the team’s home market), NBC announced it in May but that hasn’t stopped the 11th-hour outrage:

It was reported at the time that the one-off single-game package could have netted the NFL an additional $110m in rights.

The game averaged 23 million viewers across Peacock, NBC stations in Miami and Kansas City, and NFL+. That’s apparently the most-streamed live event in U.S. history, peaking with nearly 25 million viewers in the second quarter, NBCUniversal reports.

Diamond Sports Group maintains linear rights for the following 12 MLB teams: the Minnesota Twins, St. Louis Cardinals, Atlanta Braves, Detroit Tigers, Miami Marlins, Cleveland Guardians, Kansas City Royals, Cincinnati Reds, Los Angeles Angels, Texas Rangers, Tampa Bay Rays and Milwaukee Brewers.

MLB is unable to lift blackout restrictions for those teams through its streaming service, MLB.TV, because it would qualify as a breach of the teams’ contracts with Diamond Sports Groups. MLB was only able to lift blackouts for the San Diego Padres and the Arizona Diamondbacks once their deals fell through.
