Verizon Wireless will stream National Football League games to subscribers in their home markets starting next year under a $1 billion rights deal that expands a current agreement under which the carrier has provided games from Sunday, Monday and Thursday nights for $5 a month. The NFL application also will give Verizon customers access to the NFL Network, NFL RedZone channel and all postseason games, including the Super Bowl. "We look for these deals to drive switching, loyalty and subscription fees," Verizon's Brian Angiolet said.
