By Alex Golliver • Feb 08, 2018 10:03:00The National Football League has been working on the next generation of radio in recent years.
That effort is led by a new deal that will allow players to listen to their team’s game broadcasts from their phone or tablet.
The National Basketball Association has been using a similar system for a few years now, and the NFL has also been working to bring it to the field.
Now, NFL Network is bringing its technology to the game, with the NFL Network app available on Apple and Android phones.
Players can access the NFL’s NFL Radio app, which is available in the Apple App Store and Google Play for iPhones and iPads, as well as Android and Windows Phone.
In addition to streaming live broadcasts, the NFL Radio platform also offers access to on-demand content.
The NFL also has a live feed available for select games from a number of local affiliates, including FOX and ESPN.
The NFL has been experimenting with using its apps in conjunction with the radio platform.
For instance, in September, the league launched its first live streaming video feed for the Philadelphia Eagles’ season-opening game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The next step for the NFL is to roll out a similar service for the rest of the league.
For now, the live stream is only available to select teams and their players.
The app will roll out in phases over the next few months.
