Verizon locked in another deal with the NFL this season to bring you exclusive content through their NFL Mobile app. This time around though, they are giving 4G LTE customers free premium access for the entire season, something 3G customers have to pay $10 a month for. Premium access includes live streaming of Sunday Night Football games, Monday Night Football games, and even NFL Network exclusive Thursday night games. NFL Redzone which gives you quick looks at any game with a scoring opportunity is a part of the Premium package as well.
And yes, that is a picture of the DROID Bionic. No, they have not announced it yet.
