Verizon seeks to broadcast the 2014 Super Bowl over LTE
broadcast the Super Bowl to Verizon connected handsets over its 4G LTE pipeline. Last year, Verizon streamed the game to its customers through the NFL Mobile app, but a broadcast would offer a more stable view of the game and would eliminate the buffering that takes away from the experience. McAdams said that a broadcast of the Super Bowl could take place as soon as the 2014 game. According to Ericsson, with broadcasting over LTE , "operators can make better use of their available spectrum and free up network capacity." McAdams says that Verizon's goal is to "break down the barrier between home and mobile."
For those interested, the 2014 Super Bowl will be held at Met Life Stadium in New Jersey, home to both the New York Jets and New York Giants. It will be the first Super Bowl played outdoors in a cold weather climate and the first to be held in the New York-New Jersey market.
