The NFL has also given complimentary access to NFL Game Pass as well as uploading many previous games to its YouTube channel.
“Those types of content don’t really work all that well on our other social media platforms – like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or even our website,” Ryan Huzjak, the team’s director of corporate partnerships and sales, said in the above Front Office Sports article. “Those tend to be used a little bit differently, so YouTube has really settled in for us as a nice place for longer-form content, which I think is what the channel is meant to be used for.”
