According to a report from Broadcasting & Cable, CBS for the first time will live stream its coverage of the AFC portion of the NFL playoffs starting with a game between the Chargers and Bengals this weekend. In addition to the wildcard matchup this Sunday, the network will also live stream two divisional round games and the AFC conference championship. The live stream will be available to users tuning in on desktops, laptops, and tablets through the CBS website, but there’s no mention of mobile phones or apps.
While you may or might not be able to get the live stream through the official CBS Sports mobile app, there are a number of great iOS apps to keep up to date on the latest as the NFL playoffs kick off this month.
