It'd certainly be in the NFL's interest to see that option developed. Direct manages their own offering now, but it's so burdened with eligibility requirements as to be nearly irrelevant.
The NFL retained the online/mobile streaming rights but allows Directv to offer ST on a limited basis. Don't expect NFL GamePass to be offered to US subs anytime soon, the NFL likes how it's content is layered thru the networks as they continue to offer top dollar to the NFL.
