Verizon has grabbed a huge deal four year deal with the NFL, which will allow the company to broadcast more games over customers smartphones. Verizon Wireless is currently the largest carrier in the US and is trying to pull more content onto mobile devices.

The National Football League will show Sunday afternoon games on Verizon Wireless customers smartphones in home markets. Previously, Verizon had a deal to show Sunday, Monday and Thursday nights games, but more games are played on Sunday afternoons.

Verizon Wireless will also offer the NFL Network, and its NFL RedZone on this deal, allowing customers to find the scores and watch matches in a variety of different ways.

Sunday Night Football was the most watched program on TV that year, we believe Verizon will continue to up the money to get the best content for their customers, we just wonder if it will pay off.
