/// Verizon’s $1 Billion Deal Includes Streaming the Super Bowl
As Americans continue to watch more TV on screens other than their televisions, Verizon Wireless has signed a multi-year $1 billion contract to expand its service giving customers access to NFL games via their smartphones. Verizon customers will be able to stream afternoon local games as part of Verizon's NFL Mobile Package, according to The Wall Street Journal . Currently the app offers access to NFL games on Sunday, Monday and Thursday nights. In 2014, customers will be able to watch all home-market games as well as post-season games—including the Super Bowl. The deal enhances the phone and Internet provider's existing package, which allows viewers to stream games in tandem with ESPN, NBC and NFL Network broadcasts for $5 per month.
