It is possible that Apple TV+ may soon begin delivering NFL Sunday games in addition to its already extensive library of series, movies, documentaries, and live TV programming options.

In April, Apple added “Friday Night Baseball” to its Apple TV+ subscription service, a live broadcast of MLB games.

Now, it would appear that the Cupertino technology giant is in the lead to add football to its list of available products.

According to Puck News, Apple CEO Tim Cook and Eddy Cue met with NFL Commissioner Rodger Goodell at the Sun Valley Conference in July. Apple has long been rumored to be in the race for the transaction, although no official confirmation has been made.

Sources say that bidding for the purchase started at $2 billion, which eliminated potential buyers such as Fox, Comcast, and CBS from the running. However, according to Puck News, the acquisition could cost Apple as much as $3 billion.

In a $115 million deal with the MLB, NBC Sports, and Apple, it is believed that the company paid roughly $85 million for the right to watch “Friday Night Baseball.”

Apple has also partnered with Major League Soccer (MLS) to make the Apple TV app the official destination for all games and other content for a decade beginning in 2023.
