A woman, for instance, is seen watching on a tablet during a bus ride, a father is seen watching a game on his smartphone, while holding his baby boy. Images captured during touchdowns, as well as images showing team players celebrating victory are also included.
At the end of the spot, onscreen lines flashing across the screen inform viewers that they can stream live games, primetime games, and local games on their smartphone or tablet with the Yahoo Sports mobile app.
Yahoo Sports started streaming NFL playoff games at the beginning of this year, in January, and in February it also streamed the Super Bowl LII. Following Verizon’s new agreement with the NFL, NBCUniversal was granted rights to stream Sunday Night Football on smartphones and ESPN snagged mobile streaming rights to Monday Night Football.
