Netflix sees these NFL games as a key part of its new strategy to “create great moments that really matter to consumers,” Spencer Wang, vice president of finance, told the WSJ. According to Wang, the partnership with the NFL does not represent a major change in sports focus, but rather an initiative to promote innovative events.

The company has already been collaborating with the NFL for a few years, producing the “Quarterback” series, which followed three players during the 2022-23 season. This summer it will launch “Receiver,” which will showcase other athletes’ routines during the 2023-24 season.
