Sprint Nextel, a provider of wireline and wireless communications services, has announced that the company and the National Football League are giving its wireless subscribers access to live game coverage on their mobile phones.
Coverage will include red zone drives and other key moments of all games televised on National Football League (NFL) Network in 2007. The coverage will be provided by NFL Network which will produce a three-hour studio-based show that will be streamed live on NFL.com and via wireless exclusively to Sprint subscribers.
Steve Gaffney, Sprint’s director of sports sponsorships, said: Sprint continues to drive innovation with NFL fans. Fans tell us they want to have the ability to watch live NFL game broadcasts on their phones and we’re enabling them to do that.
