Last Sunday I had the opportunity to attend a special kickoff event for the Verizon Sports Fans Program. The program aims to put Verizon’s best technology into the hands of great bloggers (their words).
The event took me to Soldier Field in Chicago (see image above) where I saw the Bears defeat the Rams. If you thought the Lions’ meltdown was hard to stomach from home, imagine following it while sitting in a rival’s stadium as they close out their opponent.
At any rate, I have a brand new Droid RAZR M that I’ll be testing out over the next few months to see how it can enhance the fan experience. I already have a few thoughts on the M but first reaction is to the NFL Mobile app. Simply put, it’s awesome. Scores, stats, videos (including live action), it’s all there. Starting today through October 1 you can check out NFL Mobile Premium for no cost.
NFL Mobile Premium will let you catch this week’s live Thursday, Sunday and Monday Night NFL games, and includes access to live video features of NFL Mobile, including the live games, NFL RedZone and the NFL Network.
All Verizon customers need to do is dial **NFL to receive free access. Then you too can watch NFL Network from your cubicle. Try it out and let me know what you think.
Disclosure: I am participating in the Verizon Wireless Midwest Fans program and have been provided with a wireless device and five months of service in exchange for my honest opinions about the product.
