You read that right. Starting Monday, Verizon reportedly is launching its NFL coverage after wrestling away rights from Sprint. [via Gizmofusion] Included will be live streaming video of draft coverage, Thursday night games, NBC Sunday night games, and live audio of every NFL game. Combine that with player stats, Red Zone videos, and fantasy football integration and you've got yourself a winner.

This is available for the Motorola Droid and Devour, and the HTC Droid Eris. The app is free for the 2010 season but will become a paid app starting Jan. 11, 2011. There are no additional fees to use the service (yet, anyway), but note that it does count against your data usage. 

Oh, and if you can't wait until Monday, the app's already leaked out and is available at Droid-Life.

Verizon NFL app officially launching Monday, but you can get it today


I can just go to to get gamecast which is all I care about. Plus, when it was with Sprint it was free. Verizon makes you pay for everything. "Get on your knees and suck it." That should be their moto. One of their advertisements should be. "You want the NFL? Go to Verizon, but first. Get on your knees and suck it. Now you can have the NFL. Then suck it again."

@moosc what part of "available for Droid, devour, and Droid Eris" leads you to think it would work anywhere other than Verizon? What part of "after wrestling rights away from sprint" leads to a different conclusion? When sprint had the rights, did they ever share off network?

If you have directv + Sunday ticket + superfan, you can get an app now to watch games live. That's tied to directv not Verizon .

I'm guessing Jan 11 is a typo, since it says it will be free "through 2010 season". Regular season I'm pretty sure ends the week before, so either it should end earlier if they are going to cut off the playoffs, or a month later to get the entire season.

I am a VZW customer with a MOTO Droid running koushs Rom. I've been reading other people have been havING trouble not getting it to work

can anyone tell me if NFL Mobile will be available on the Nexus One? If not -- this will probably help steer consumers towards the Incredible.
