KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Streaming giant Netflix reached a deal with the NFL to stream 2024’s two marquee Christmas Day games, one of which features the Kansas City Chiefs at Pittsburgh Steelers.

In an announcement Wednesday, the streaming service confirmed the featured matchups — Chiefs at Steelers and Ravens at Texans.

Chiefs-Steelers will kick off at 12 p.m. CT, and the Ravens-Texans matchup is set for 3:30 p.m. CT.

The three-season long deal means Netflix will stream at least one holiday game in 2025 and 2026.

Netflix’s chief content officer said the company is “so excited” to be the exclusive platform for Christmas games this year as no live events “compare with the audiences NFL football attracts.”

Similarly, a representative for the NFL said the agreement is the “perfect combination” to allow the league to reimagine tradition.

“We couldn't be more excited to be the first professional sports league to partner with Netflix to bring live games to fans around the world," Hans Schroeder, NFL executive vice president of Media Distribution, said in a news release.

As a long-standing tradition, the NFL will broadcast the Christmas Day games on TV in the competing teams' cities. The NFL said mobile devices with NFL+ can also view the games.

The entire 2024 schedule will be released at 7 p.m. CT Wednesday.
