Super Bowl to be streamed online for the first time, available on iPhone, iPad

The NFL has announced that this year will be the first year that the Super Bowl and the Pro Bowl will be streamed live across the internet. What's more, iPhone and iPad users will be able to view the games on their devices too.

The NFL stream will be available to view on its own site and the NBC channel. If you want to view it on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, you will need to pick up the Verizon NFL Mobile app. The app is free in the App Store but unfortunately it will only work for Verizon Wireless customers.

The whole Super Bowl experience should be greatly enhanced next year with the promise of multiple camera angles, highlights and live stats, right in the palm of your hand.

Super Bowl to be streamed online for the first time, available on iPhone, iPad


Just imagine how much of that limited data amount will be eaten up using that app to stream the SuperBowl...
Verizon must want you to use it all up in early February & have overages later in the month.
Also, be warned, not everyone starts their billing cycle at the beginning of the month, and Verizon may catch you using this app & cost you overages if you don't have enough data to stream it.
Not sure how many people will be using WiFi that can't watch the game on a TV anyway. Little screen vs. bigger screen (TV). But hey, its a nice feature to offer though.

Wow and I just got an email from AT&T that I was in there top 5% for data usage, guess watching netflix is really killing there data connection. During super bowl there data network is going to crash probably.

It's only going to be interesting if they offer different viewing angles. This would be great for supplemental viewing.
I'm still waiting for the day when you can watch specific areas of the field regardless of play, specific players, or unique angles.
Imagine doing a stream from a helmet cam of the Running Back as he takes it to the endzone.

YAY!!! Superbowl on my Sprint iPhone!!!! "Are you watching the game on your phone". "NO. I'm watching THE SUPERBOWL!! LOL!!!"

With NFL and NBC both offering it online at their websites, I am betting they will also stream it to their iOS Apps.

I feel that is one of the most significant information for me. And i'm glad studying your article. But wanna commentary on some common things, The website style is perfect, the articles is in point of fact excellent : D. Excellent task, cheers
