Football fans in situations where they do not have access to a Television, will rejoice at this news. For the first time ever, NBC and the NFL will be streaming the Superbowl directly on the internet, but mobile viewers were not left out either. The stream will also be available exclusively for Verizon Wireless mobile customers as well. You will have to have one of the supported phones, plus NFL Mobile installed to get the stream. Streaming viewers will also get treated to some extra features. Rick Cordella, vice president of NBC Sports Digital Media, had this to add,
