Football, Verizon, and a #Giveaway

Disclaimer: I have received product strictly for use for giveaways. 

One of my absolute favorite things about Fall is football. I love football parties, watching while I cook, having it on in the background on Sunday afternoons. I enjoy all football, but pro is my favorite. I love the Steelers, the Saints, and the 49ers. 

One of my favorite memories is watching the Cowboys and 49ers play with my dad. There is something magical about football season that begs for parties, food, festivities, and fandom. In fact, I'm thinking about planning a football party as I write this. 

Luckily, Verizon gets it, that is why they have partnered with NFL to create the best app for football fans. (Press release below)

Jeff Dezen Public Relations has been helping spread the word about this partnership and has offered something special for readers of The Palmetto Queen. Find out how to win one of two Otterbox cases below the press release. 

NFL Mobile Evolves to Keep Fans Better Connected to the Gridiron

The popular app begins new service offerings today to better cater to NFL fans whose viewing habits are increasingly tied to their smart devices.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – With the NFL season just days away, Verizon’s deal with the NFL to stream live game footage to mobile devices just got a lot sweeter for fans. NFL Mobile, a versatile app that’s proved instrumental in preparing fans to draft and track fantasy football teams, will now offer Verizon customers on MORE Everything data plans free access to exclusive features – to include live games – streamed to a smartphone.

The app is free to download but has traditionally offered premium video content to Verizon Wireless customers for $5 monthly access. For the 2014-2015 season, MORE Everything customers will have free access to Sunday night, Monday night and Thursday night games, as well as Sunday afternoon games in the local market. MORE Everything customers will also be able to access the NFL Network 24/7. For an additional $1.99 per month, customers can access NFL RedZone to see a compilation of game and scoring highlights. Verizon customers with different data plans can access NFL Mobile premium content for $5 per month.

“Each year we’re seeing things like fantasy football grow in popularity, and being able to watch games on the go, check scores, make changes to line-ups from a smartphone has become an essential part of fans’ game plans,” said Jerry Fountain, president for Verizon Wireless in the Carolinas and Tennessee. “We’ve seen usage of NFL Mobile grow, and we feel the anticipation for the season building, especially as we talk with customers about this new benefit for football fans.”

For fantasy football enthusiasts, the app helps them keep up with team news, final scores, highlights, scoring plays and fantasy line-up reminders. The app also sends notifications when a player is injured, providing fantasy-league members time to adjust their line-ups for the upcoming week.
