NFL, NBC to stream Superbowl live online and to Verizon mobile users for first time ever

The NFL and NBC will stream Superbowl XLVI live online and to mobile devices for the first time ever in February. Unfortunately, the broadcast won’t be available to all mobile users; Verizon Wireless will be the exclusive mobile partner and subscribers can watch the game live provided they have a supported phone with NFL Mobile installed. Viewers can also stream the Pro Bowl and Wild Card Saturday using NBC or the NFL’s website, or Verizon’s mobile application. The Associated Press¬†said that streaming viewers will be treated to live stats, highlights from the game and additional camera angles. Superbowl XLVI kicks off on February 5th in Indianapolis.

Apple’s Verizon iPhone plans: Our predictions

Apple’s Verizon iPhone plans: Our predictions

Earlier today, we posted information that led us to believe Apple’s iPhone for Verizon Wireless will go on sale starting February 3rd. The dates all line up with previous reports of Apple vacation blackouts in addition to Apple keeping on the extra Holiday staffers for its stores until further notice. Our independent sources confirmed that in multiple regions, Apple employees are not able to take vacations from February 3rd to February 6th. If those dates hold true, and turn out to be the dates the Verizon iPhone goes on sale, Apple will have to announce the device fairly quickly. While Verizon is one carrier that Apple could trust to keep a product secret (if there is such a thing), there is still no way the company would let the stock piles of Verizon iPhones move before an announcement.

Google airs rare search advertisement during Superbowl

Google airs rare search advertisement during Superbowl

Google - Persian Love Ad

Rumors of a Superbowl ad for Google’s search service began circulating the internet last week when Google CEO Eric Schmidt tweeted: “Can’t wait to watch the Superbowl tomorrow. Be sure to watch the ads in the 3rd quarter. (someone said, ‘Hell has indeed frozen over’).”¬† Google, a company known for it’s web advertisements, rarely (ever?) spends company dollars on television-based ads for its line of web services. However, as tweeted by the CEO, a Google spot did air during the third quarter of the big game last night. We thought the 60-second spot, titled “Parisian Love”, was pretty clever and deserved a nod, even though it wasn’t exactly new. Congratulations to the New Orleans Saints on their victory last night; we have the video queued up for you after the break. More →
