The Super Bowl, Pro Bowl And NBC’s Wild-Card Playoff Games Will Be Streamed On Mobile Phones For The First Time

The NFL has announced that NBC’s broadcasts of wild card Saturday, the Pro Bowl and the Super Bowl will be available online as well as via Verizon’s NFL Mobile app. This will mark the first time said events were streamed through a mobile platform and it comes as no surprise that their partner Verizon gets the honor. Here’s what Hans Shroeder, NFL senior vice president of media strategy and development had to say about the news:

We are pleased to work with our partners NBC and Verizon to bring our fans more ways to watch their favorite sport during their favorite time of the year.

While I’m not going to complain since I’m on Verizon, it kind of sucks when others get alienated from enjoying things like this.

This year’s Super Bowl will take place in Indianapolis on February 5th and will be available to stream via Verizon’s NFL Mobile application found in the Android Market. While most of us prefer to be watching the games at the stadium (you wish) or on a big screen TV, it’s nice to know you won’t miss a play should you have to run out to get ice, or use the bathroom (yea, I went there). I know I’ll have the game cued up on my brilliant Samsung Galaxy Nexus just in case such moments arise.
