NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — NFL Sunday afternoon games will be available to local fans on mobile phones through Verizon starting with the 2014 season.
The league said Tuesday it had extended its deal with Verizon. For the coming season, the NFL Mobile app will continue to allow subscribers to watch Thursday, Sunday and Monday night games, NFL Network and NFL RedZone.
“Verizon Wireless, the official wireless service provider of the NFL, will continue to provide fans with access to America’s favorite sport, regardless of whether they are at home or on the go,” the NFL said in a statement.
The following season, the service will expand to include Sunday afternoon games on CBS and Fox within teams’ home markets, along with all playoff games.
