NFL Announces NFL Now App for Android, Will Launch Before 2014 Season

The National Football League (NFL) announced this morning the NFL Now application for iOS, Android, and Windows devices. The app will bring football fans closer to the gridiron action, thanks to dynamically personalized information on your favorite team, customizable news feeds, and highlights from across the league. Think of it like the NFL Mobile app on steroids. 

Users will also have access to the “deepest vault of on-demand video content” that’s ever been offered by the NFL. Here is a brief breakdown of NFL Now taken from the press release that was sent to the media.

Available across Internet-connected devices, NFL Now will be personalized for each fan’s interests, allowing them to follow the NFL how they want, where they want, when they want. Users will indicate their favorite team, fantasy players and which videos they like and dislike. The content stream will dynamically personalize each user’s viewing experience to deliver a customizable news, analysis and highlights offering for NFL fans around the world. Additionally, NFL Now will provide users with access to the deepest vault of on-demand NFL video content available anywhere.

As you could have guessed, Verizon will be a major launch and distribution partner for NFL Now, meaning Verizon customers can gain access to the digital stream via its 4G LTE network. No word on if the streaming aspect will be exclusive to Verizon customers, though. We really hope not. Other partners include Yahoo!, Microsoft’s Xbox One team, Gillette, and there are more to come.

The app will launch right ahead of the 2014 football season in the Summer.

Football fans, you stoked?

    NFL Mobile app as of now is AWFUL

  • belsonc

    Does this mean they’ll take off the deprecated NFL Mobile apps from our phones so we don’t have 2 different apps with the same name?

  • sski66

    Sounds pretty cool, Let’s Go Big Blue Wrecking Crew!

  • Green

    Cool. Looking forward to it.
    GO BRONCOS!!! 🙂

  • Thomas

    This news make me happy in pants 😉

  • Al-Burrit0

    Just put it in the app store and let people download it. Im a football guy and feel its unfair if its exclusive to Verizon . I want to watch live games with a NFL mobile app too!

  • trixnkix637

    Will this allow me to watch live games I wonder?

  • RoadsterHD1

    I love my NFL Mobile by Verizon. Red Zone and NFL Network, Sunday night Football and more

    • Thomas

      Thank goodness you can watch the Super Bowl via the app as well !!!

  • dizel123

    Just give me an app that lets me stream whatever game I want live and take my money!(I know, I know, Directv BS, but its still what I want)

  • 213ninja

    why announce this 6 months in advance?

    • Chris

      Why not?

      • 213ninja

        I guess it’s the NFL doing it big. But this will be the third time they have renamed the app in a years time. I’m wondering they they don’t just pick a name, stick with it, and update it regularly through play like other normal apps…people are clearly confused by this as you can tell by the comments. Not sure why I got hated on lol, I love the NFL and this app.

  • Anthony

    They need up update their fantasy football app. It’s crap compared to the competition.

    • michael arazan

      ESPN isn’t that bad. Too think I had to read every sunday’s paper to get my stats for every team back in 1991 when we played Fantasy Football in school,

  • boo

    I hope its a Verizon exclusive. All you GSM weiners can suck a big fat one.

    • Pedro

      Much rage at overpaying for service? I’ll just put the $2K I save with Tmob/ST every year into the bank.
      And, I’ll watch all the football games I want on the teevee.

    • kmac

      Lte is gsm which is what Verizon uses

      • Chris M

        LTE is LTE

        • John Legere

          But LTE is LTE meaning LTE is LTE

      I’d rather be able to buy a Nexus device than stream football on my phone, especially if I can just watch it on my big flat screen at home.

      • Chris

        The app does a lot more them stream games. Lol

        While you are right. It is better to watch it on the big screen not everyone can be home.

    • John Legere

      Very useful addition to this thread. Reported.

      • Philip J. Fry

        I wish droid-life would disable guest commenting. It only leads to ignorant comments like the one above.

        • Chris

          Who’s forcing you to read them? Just report and move on. No need to be a cry baby about it.

          • Philip J. Fry

            And who’s forcing you to read my comments? I’m through with your ignorant trolling. Please stop responding to my comments, it isn’t doing nothing but trashing the comment section.

          • Chris

            All you do is cry cry cry about nonsense. You call everyone a “troll” who says something you don’t like or disagree with. first and formost you are a child. You have ZERO right to be running around telling other people what to do. I’ll respond to you if I damn well fell like it.

            I’m done with you. go play in your sandbox….

            Whats funny is that @disqus_8aEJh3Jmb0:disqus started it all. (as usual)

            but you didn’t help much by responding to the punk.

          • Nicker Please

            The best part, it proves our multiple personalities theory. As Tato said yesterday, ignore them and they will leave.

          • Philip J. Fry

            Yep, That’s exactly what I’m doing from here on out. This sh!t has gotten past old.

          • Tim

            You’re trashing it right now punk

        • Guest

          Not everyone wants to create an account.

      GSM needs to die. It’s used to conduct terrorist acts.

  • John Legere

    I already have NFL Mobile that Verizon shoved down my throat 🙁

    • Cesar

      As do I. I disabled it immediately, but it sucks that I can’t just uninstall it.

      • Chris

        It still is taking up space regardless if you disable or or not.

    • dizel123

      Admit it, THAT’S not what they shoved down your throat!

    • Ralph

      Soooooo you don’t like football??? Curious, why come in this thread? Me personally, I love my NFL Mobile. Love streaming my games live from my desk at work. And heres the kicker: I love getting it free every month with my discount.

      • John Legere

        Because it affects Verizon users who hate bloat.

        And i love football

        • Ralph

          Point taken. In fact, Verizon bloat lead me to root my phone.

  • Chris Mullins

    So now people get the option to install Verizon bloatware on their own devices?

    • John Legere

      I’m awaiting an update on my G2 that adds it then makes it where you can’t uninstall it lol

    • 213ninja

      NFL Mobile isn’t Verizon bloatware anymore. It’s in the Play store….it’s the official NFL app. it’s actually not bad at all. I can understand wanting to kill it if you’re not into fooseball, but if you are, this app ain’t half bad.

      not sure why they have to keep changing the name of the damn app though……why not just update that shiz like everyone else? oh nevermind, it’s the NFL, go big or go home i guess….
