For the first time ever, the Super Bowl will be streamed online and on mobile devices. Android users on Verizon Wireless will be able to stream the big game with the NFL Mobile app which is currently available for Verizon customers that have certain Android devices. The game will also be streamed online through NFL.com and NBCSports.com. In addition to streaming the Super Bowl, both the Pro Bowl and the wild-card playoff games will be streamed online and on mobile.
I, personally, will be watching the game on the big screen. It is good to have a backup though. Now, when I really need to be away from the TV, I can still catch the action on my phone. This is also a plus for the many people who won’t be able to watch the game due to work or other reasons.
Good job, NFL, NBC Sports, and Verizon!
