NBC hopes to lure displaced Philly sports fans with new streaming plan

NBC is going after Philly fans who don’t live in Philly anymore.

The peacock network is launching a new streaming product, called “Philly Pass.” It will gives folks outside the network’s Philadelphia territory to have access to pre- and post-game coverage of NBC Sports’ Eagles, Phillies and Sixers coverage. The pass, which will cost $29.99 annually or $3.99 monthly, will include NBC’s weekday sports program, “Philly Sports Talk” and well as the Eagles’ “Quick Slants” show.

“Philadelphia sports fans are some of the most passionate in the country,” said David Preschlack, president of NBC Sports Regional Networks & Platform Content Strategy. “We are pleased to offer displaced Philly fans the ability to watch our popular sports programs, and give them the insight and coverage of their home teams from the voices of NBC Sports Philadelphia.”

In addition to the game coverage, there will also be other team focused programs, including the 2018 Eagles championship parade and a feature on the 2008 Phillies baseball team.

Fans can visit www.nbcsports.com/gold/phillypass to purchase the product and confirm if the pass is available in their area.

NBC Sports launched a “Blazers Pass” last year for displaced fans of Portland’s NBA basketball team.
