The NFL is about it’s all mighty dollar, and reports are surfacing that the league and a popular cell phone company are set to blow the lid off of how we as consumers can now watch the NFL on the go.
Sports Business Daily is reporting that the NFL and Verizon are close to agree to a four-year, $1 Billion deal that would allow the cell phone giant to now stream every NFL regular season and playoff game to mobile phones.
The previous deal between the two gave Verizon subscribers access to live games from ESPN, NBC and NFL Network. This new deal adds in the CBS and Fox Sunday afternoon schedules plus the playoffs.
It comes just two weeks after the NFL signed a five-year, $400 million deal with Microsoft.
The deal does not include tablets or anything of that nature, simply mobile phones. It definitely now makes Verizon the leader in cell phone sales for people like myself who are constantly on the go, but don’t want to miss a minute of Sunday NFL action.
