With the NFL Playoffs coming up and the Super Bowl happening just around the corner, those who are interested in watching the live games on the go will have more than a few options. Back on December 12th both the NFL and Verizon announced a new partnership deal that would extend their original partnership out beyond the initial planned timing. In addition to that, it also introduced the ability for the live games to be viewed through Yahoo Sports, go90, and the NFL Mobile app. Most importantly, though, it allows for consumers from either wireless carriers to partake in the viewing, so it's no longer exclusive to Verizon Wireless subscribers only.
Though this isn't necessarily new information, it is worth reiterating since the AFC and NFC playoffs are happening on Sunday, January 21st, with the Jaguars facing off against the Patriots and the Vikings taking on the Eagles. This playoff game will decide who faces off in the Super Bowl for the championship this year, and with three official games left in the season before the whole thing is over until next year, thanks to this new partnership you won't have to worry about missing out on any of the action this weekend or during the big game.
Since both games in the upcoming conference will be taking place on Sunday, it'll be easy to watch both games, especially considering that both games start at different times. For example, you'll be able to pop open the Yahoo Sports, go90, or NFL Mobile apps and watch the Jaguars-Patriots game beginning at 3:05 pm Eastern, which is going to be just after 12 Pacific. Then later in the day, you can watch the Vikings-Eagles game that starts at 6:40 PM Eastern which will be about 3:40 Pacific. This should give you about three hours or so of time to stream the first game before the second game comes on, and since it's all available via the three above-mentioned apps, whether you're at home, at work, or in transit during the commute, you can stay up on all the big plays and see who will be moving forward.
