We suspected this would be the case sooner than later when the NFL and Reddit announced a comprehensive new partnership, and the day has come: The Reddit NFL Streams page is no more.

This follows the news that Reddit's NBA streams page shut down in July.

While to some extent clamping down on pirate streaming hubs will be a game of whack a mole for leagues and networks for perpetuity, these Reddit pages represent a pretty big mole that have been eradicated. They had the most popular -- or at least very close -- platform for illegal NBA and NFL streaming and a lot of people are going to be scrambling to figure out what to do next.
