The NFL continues to strive to provide the best online experience for the fans. They’re taking the next step in doing that after NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced Thursday a new high-quality video network called NFL Now.
Users will be able to create customized streams of news, analysis and highlights to follow their favorite teams.
Once you select the team you want to follow, the app will instantly transmit locker room interviews and practice updates to give fans instant behind-the-scenes looks at their favorite teams.
“This appetite for NFL news and information is borderline insatiable,” said Brian Rolapp, NFL Executive VP of Media, during a press conference in New York City.
“We see that more and more fans are using video, which has grown 33%, and we’ve seen 152% growth on mobile. Fans want it on devices they carry in their pockets.”
The new network will also contain an archive of NFL games so fans can revisit classic plays whenever they want.
As of now, there will be a free version of NFL Now for smartphones and web browsers, and premium pricing will also be available for expanded features, though there are no pricing details yet.
The plan for the app is to have NFL Now ready to be released over the summer prior to the start of the 2014 NFL season
It will initially be available for Windows, iPhone, Android and Xbox One, and it’s unclear if it will ever be made available on other platforms like the PlayStation 4.
