Verizon offering NFL Mobile app as new season gets ready to kick off
Last year, Verizon offered the NFL Mobile app free to its smartphone sporting customers, That included the fabulous Red Zone which takes viewers from game to game, giving you a live feed when a team is at or inside the opponent's 20 yard-line, known as the "red zone". Last year Big Red made it clear that the next season it would charge for some of the app's features, and now that the new season is upon us, the carrier is offering the NFL Mobile app with both a free, basic service and a more video-centric paid one.

Available from the Android Market or iTunes, or by texting NFL to 8915, the app is offered to Verizon customers only. The free, basic version of the app will give you live audio play-by-play of all games in English and in Spanish where available. You can use Gamecenter to follow any game in progress with play-by-play results. Also free are video highlights, news, the NFL schedule, team rosters and team customizations. For those fantasy football players, there is a Fantasy Tracker.

The Premium version of the app includes everything that comes with the basic plan, but includes Red Zone, NFL Network, live Sunday evening, Monday evening and Thursday evening games. To receive all this video content, you merely need to subscribe to Verizon Video. As we reported. Verizon Video replaced the carrier's VCast service and costs $10 per month or $3 for 24 hours of service.

A quick perusal of compatible devices at the sourcelink appears to cover just about every Verizon smartphone in service, but you might want to check it out to be completely sure that your smartphone is covered.
