Verizon, NFL sign deal for mobile streaming America's largest carrier, Verizon Wireless, has announced they have signed a deal with the NFL to stream live football games via the RedZone Channel over mobile phones.
The deal will last for the next four seasons, and will begin with the NFL draft in April.

Although unconfirmed, the deal is said to have been priced at $720 million.

The NFL has never had a deal of this caliber, preferring to broadcast games on TV, on CBS, FOX, and ESPN. Verizon continues to look at ways of bringing in new revenue, as the mobile phone market is near saturation in the United States.

I prefer a screen bigger than 2 x 4 inches to watch sporting events on, but maybe I'm picky. Oh yeah, bring your charger when you plan to watch, 3 hours of streaming video (average football game) is sure to be a battery sucker.
