Hey Canada! Are you ready to stream some football for free on Twitter! Yeah! Today the NFL and Twitter announced a "global" deal that will see the social network stream Thursday night games online.
As the Wall Street Journal reported, the deal enables Twitter to "to stream the games free globally across devices."
The NFL Canada Twitter feed was pumped!
One problem: NFL rights in Canada are owned by Rogers, and so that means no streaming NFL games for us. It seems even the NFL was confused about this at one point today, though some media reports correctly said Canada was getting the ol' shafteroo.
