Verizon to stream National Football League games on all carrier networks

Football

That means you're still limited to whatever your local Fox or CBS station would be airing on TV; DirecTV still has an exclusive grip on out-of-market games. Recode's sources say the new deal will cost Verizon over $1.5 billion over five years.

Through its digital and mobile properties, Verizon said it reaches more than 200 million unique viewers in the U.S. Sources said that the media rights and sponsorship deal is worth an average of close to $500M per year, an increase that almost doubles the $250M per year Verizon is paying as part of its current four-year deal.

In addition to the expanded availability of live games, the new NFL-Verizon agreement encompasses mobile access to NFL highlights, coverage of NFL throughout the week and year, and a set of jointly developed original content (like virtual-reality experiences).

The agreement will additionally provide fans with mobile access to National Football League highlights, coverage of National Football League throughout the week and year, and a set of jointly-developed original content.

"We're making a commitment to fans for Verizon's family of media properties to become the mobile destination for live sports", Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam said in a statement. Verizon has global distribution rights to the on-demand content, while the live games are USA -only.

Apple snaps up Shazam for $400 million
However, various media organisations have recorded that the Apple is paying about $400 million for the Shazam App. Shazam makes the namesake song recognition app that allows users to identify songs they have never heard before.

Verizon says that it will continue to be an Official Sponsor of the National Football League, and is also working with National Football League teams on Smart Stadium technology to improve stadium operations.

Verizon formed the Oath digital-media group this summer, combining AOL and Yahoo under one umbrella, after closing the $4.5 billion acquisition of Yahoo in June 2017.

The NFL benefits here by getting to participate in streaming, as more consumers are bailing on traditional TV and cable services for a la carte streaming options.

Fritzsche noted the partnership comes as many tech companies are increasingly interested in sports content. Amazon, for example, had global streaming rights to the Thursday Night Football lineup last season. Next year, national preseason and regular season games will be included. "Our expanded partnership with Verizon is great for our fans".
