NFL to stream playoffs and superbowl to web and mobile devices

CNN Tech:

The upcoming wild card games, the Pro Bowl and the Super Bowl — TV’s most-watched annual event — will be streamed for free to computers on NFL.com and NBCSports.com.

That’s the good news. The bad is for mobile devices it’s Verizon only, plus there is an extra fee for non LTE devices like the iPhone and iPad:

Verizon smartphones with a high-speed 4G LTE data plan can stream the games through the NFL Mobile app for free, a spokeswoman for the carrier said. Mobile devices with 3G service, such as the iPhone, iPad or older smartphones, require a $10-per-month Verizon Video subscription, she said.

I’m on AT&T for my iPhone and have a WIFI only iPad, I’ll be watching on the old fashion DVR and HDTV.
