Verizon customers with NFL Mobile can watch the Super Bowl on their handset for free
We just got off the phone with Verizon and can confirm that it doesn't matter whether or not you are a VCAST subscriber or have an LTE enabled phone. Just as long as you have NFL Mobile on your phone, you will be able to view Super Bowl 46 on your Verizon phone without paying a cent. Verizon took over control of the NFL Mobile app from Sprint before the NFL Draft in 2010 and just completed its second regular season with the exclusive rights to the application.
Super Bowl 46 is expected to kickoff at 6:29pm Eastern time on Sunday.

'Ruling the Air' and 'Ruling the Superbowl'!!
It's the Verizon way and their network can handle the traffic.
Other networks would implode and short-circuit (or dissolve like The Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz) but, Big Red just keeps ramping it up'.
Good luck to both teams!!

Yes, Alpine-J; Atrociously Throtted & Technically challenged along with Tiny-Mobile, both have the kind of networks that would make two paper cups and a clothes line envious.

No wait, wasnt Verizon's network going to get overloaded by the iphones?????? we know ATT did and Sprint just admitted they also couldnt handle it. I know this one hurts a lot for all you trash talking trolls. And im just pointing out the facts....

Not sure where you would be that watching on a 4.3" screen is your best option, but I suppose it's admirable that VZW isn't going to poke you for something you should be able to see free of charge anyway. Woo-Hoo!

yah it's a nice option too for people who may be traveling or don't have cable to watch it. Plus if you have an hdmi adapter you could hook it up to a bigger screen. Wish this worked for all carriers -_-
