CBS, which will split the broadcast rights to Thursday night NFL games with NBC, is in talks to secure digital rights to the games for its online subscription service CBS All Access, CEO Leslie Moonves said today.

“Last month, the pro football league decided to split the broadcast rights to its ‘Thursday Night Football’ package between NBC and CBS, after CBS held the rights for the past two seasons,” TheWrap reports. “Though the NFL will also broadcast the games on the NFL Network, it has been weighing bids, mostly from tech giants, for the digital rights to the same games.”

The report adds: “As traditional TV companies and tech upstarts elbow each other for viewership that is shifting online, the games are a high-profile property that could establish the successful bidder as a go-to destination for online content.”
