Huge sports fans will soon have something to be excited about. NFL has just announced today that it will be adding at least three new partnerships to its lineup of supported devices for the new application and streaming service that is set to be launching later this summer. The Amazon Fire TV, Kindle Fire tablet line, and Roku streaming boxes will all be able to access the NFL Now streaming service. NFL Now will offer users and NFL fans the ability to access highly customizable and personalized content ranging from on-demand NFL video to NFL highlights and information on their favorite teams and players, to follow the best parts of the NFL when ever and where ever they want.
In addition to the announcement that the service will now be available for Amazon Fire TV and Kindle Fire devices along with the Roku, NFL Now is scheduled to have an app available for download on Android devices as well, which will have access to the same content as listed with the above partners, and will be available on a global scale. Those of you who are fans out there that reside right here in the U.S. and subscribe to Verizon Wireless services will also be able to access the content through Verizon’s NFL mobile application/service.
If you weren’t completely sold on the Amazon Fire TV just yet perhaps special tailored NFL content will do the trick. If you’re set on staying away from the Fire TV, you’ll still be able to download the NFL Now app on your Android smartphone or tablet for content highlights and viewing while on the go when the Android app launches. The Amazon and Roku content access for NFL Now is said to be launching in August before the official start of the NFL season, and expect that the Android app will launch at or around the same time, given there are no complications with development. Are you a big NFL fan and will you be taking advantage of this app/service once it’s made available? If so let us know which team you rep and what you will be looking forward to most about the app after launch.
