Verizon and NFL move forward on deal to expand streaming rights

While this deal will expand Verizon’s streaming service, it will also cost it the exclusivity the previous deal offered. Under Verizon’s current agreement, it is the only company allowed to stream NFL content to smartphones. However, this new contract would allow competitors such as Sling TV and other mobile carriers the right to stream games through their smartphone apps. – Eric Brackett, Digital Trends
