Toyota Becomes Official Automotive Partner of the National Football League  

Toyota and the National Football League (NFL) have signed a multiyear sponsorship agreement naming Toyota as the Official Automotive Partner of the NFL. The agreement gives Toyota year-round access to NFL platforms and programming for brand communications.

"Toyota shares the NFL's strategic vision and goals, prioritizing authenticity and a commitment to their consumers, our fans.”

Netflix Plans Physical Stores to Elevate the Fan Experience  

The TV streaming service Netflix has announced plans to open Netflix House retail stores in 2025. According to the company, the locations will offer a mix of show-related merchandise, themed dining, and live experiences. The first two stores are planned for the U.S. with global expansion to follow.  

Netflix’s loyal fanbase will have their own space to congregate and immerse themselves in their favorite shows — right down to the food on their plates. The brand experimented with the concept last summer with its Netflix Bites pop-up restaurant in Los Angeles.  

Although the brand hasn’t released further details on Netflix House stores, company Vice President, Consumer Products Josh Simon said fans can look forward to experiencing movies and shows “in new and deeper ways.”
