So, DK will have Euroleague basketball games streaming via the app for free (given you are actively playing in leagues).
So, we heard some comments from Butera that they have some upcoming "news" involving the "top" fantasy sports operators for next season coming down the pike.
The AFL has extremely weak distribution deals right now (CBSSN for cable rights, and a hodgepodge of deals between Twitter, Monumental, etc. for streaming "rights"). I could totally see the league, in conjunction with getting AFL contests on DK, also putting a slate of the games streaming through DraftKings.
People complain about AFL games as a "pay" element online (ie, Monumental), but, if the AFL went this route, at least you are getting an additional "benefit" (chance to win your money back or more) to your $3 "fee" to watch the game.
Only thing I would hope with this is that DK develops apps for things like Roku so you can stream content on larger devices than a phone/tablet.
