The National Football League (NFL) and Adobe Systems Incorporated announced the NFL has selected Adobe Flash technology to deliver live online video streaming of NBC Sunday Night Football games on NFL.com and NBCSports.com. For the first time, full-length NFL games will be widely available in the U.S. over the Internet. Named Sunday Night Football Extra, the high-quality streaming video delivered with Adobe Flash technology will enable fans to watch the games free within a rich, immersive environment that will include interactive extras such as alternative camera angles, picture-in-picture technology, in-game highlights, live statistics, and interactivity with network talent via a live blog.
Sunday Night Football Extra will debut with the season opener tonight between the New York Giants and the Washington Redskins. Throughout the 17-game, primetime season, NFL.com and NBCSports.com will deliver online video streams and feature the audio from the NBC Sunday Night Football team: Al Michaels (play-by-play), John Madden (analyst), and Andrea Kremer (sideline reporter).
