Have Plans on Super Bowl Sunday? Verizon Customers Can Stream the Big Game Live on NFL Mobile


The NFL today announced that the Super Bowl will be streamed live to viewers on the internet and on Verizon Wireless mobile devices that have the NFL Mobile application. The reason it’s exclusive is because Verizon is the official wireless sponsor of the NFL.

Alongside the big game, which is set to kick off on February 5th, 2012 in Indianapolis, users will also be able to stream the Saturday wild card games and the Pro Bowl.

While I prefer to watch my championship football on the big screen this is a great option for those who won’t be as lucky for whatever reason. Grab the NFL Mobile client in the Android market here. [via NBC]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Hopefully they will fix NFL Mobile for the Nexus soon

  2. Problem is you have to pay for Verizon’s video download service to be able to stream it. I loaded up the NFL mobile app months ago and occasionally used it to view games or red zone content. Then my free trial ended and now it only works for news and score updates… even there I use yahoo’s score app as its just better, faster, etc.

    1. Phones that came with the NFL mobile app preinstalled (eg LTE phones) get the video for free – at least this year.  

  3. If you’re not watching the Super Bowl on a big ass TV, you don’t need to be watching it.

    1. I will be streaming it through my phone to my TV off of my HDMI cord! 

      1. Because that’s easier than an OTA antenna?

  4. Verizon will stream big game just so you go over your data limits and they can fill their pockets with overages. Great plan Verizon!

  5. For whatever reason it doesnt work on the Galaxy Nexus.

  6. doesnt streaming use alot of your data? 

    theryre probably luring you in with watch the game for “free”

    but then after 10 minutes you go over your 2 gb allowance and then your paying for overages 

    1. You should beable to stream through WiFi?

  7. Unless you have the new Nexus. The NFL app is not comparable with ICS yet.
