    If Verizon's newest plans come to fruition, then in 2014 you will be able to watch the Superbowl via their live Broadcast over LTE. Verizon chief Lowell McAdam and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, made it clear at CES today that VZW plans to market their live broadcast TV over 4G LTE service. Here's a quote with some additional info,

    What do you guys think? I am not seeing how it makes any difference whether the Superbowl is broadcast over 4G LTE or any other broadcast medium. Please share any insights as to why this is relevant.

    I know a few people who had to work during the Superbowl last year and they're Verizon customers so that makes it easier. Wonder why they didn't implement it this season...

    Oh ya, thats going to be good on their 1gig shared everything plan unless you cough up more for more gigs, but even then, their crazy data limiting plans hurts this. Plus if they don't broadcast in high def, its gonna be barely viewable.

    But is this going to be for those that paid for the monthly subscription of the mobile app or to all? If I had to guess..only paid subscribers. No way VZ does this without trying to grab some more money..just another marketing scheme to try and drum up more subscribers.

    The data caps make their plan to break down home/mobile pointless.

    I have unlimited but im one of the few lucky still. This wont work for 99% of their customers.

    My guess is this is going to be a fee based service like pay per view. You pay X amount of dollars, and then you can watch the entire game with out it counting against your actual data usage. As for the breaking down the barrier comment, again, I suspect this is going to include multiple fee based services. You pay X amount of dollars, and you get to watch a tv show with out it counting against your data.

    You're probably right. I forgot about the old Mediaflo and how it was marketed. I used to watch Star Trek with my little girl every afternoon and didn't use any data. I suppose the super bowl could be done the same way.
