NFL.com Live: Thursday Night Football presented by Sprint, the Sports Emmy-nominated online companion to NFL Network's game broadcasts, is back for a second season.
The NFL.com Livee broadcast will be anchored by a live, originally produced studio program and complemented by a live blog with analysis and commentary, on-demand video highlights and features, and in-progress game statistics.
This year, fans will be able to choose between two video streams. One stream will alternate between the NFL Network's game broadcast and the live studio show. The second video stream complements the first with a "sideline pass," showing alternative camera angles via live look-ins. NFL.com Live also will feature on-demand video, allowing fans to have access to game highlights throughout the broadcast.
» "Live Look-Ins" -- Fans will get a live look at NFL Network game action throughout the broadcast, with live action when either team enters the "red zone" (inside 20-yard line). NFL Network's Sprint Halftime Show also will be shown on NFL.com.
» Live In-Studio Programming -- Includes game highlights, analysis, previews of the NFL games ahead that week, in-studio guests, and answers to questions submitted by fans on NFL.com.
» "Sideline Pass" Reports -- When not showing live action of the game, the studio crew will go to the field for conversations with NFL Network talent, one posted on each sideline, with the latest updates on injuries and observations from each team's bench.
» Featured NFL Network Programming -- Segments of NFL Network programs reviewing the previous weekend's games and previewing upcoming action.
NFL Network's Paul Burmeister will quarterback the live NFL.com video coverage of NFL Network games from the network's Culver City, Calif. studios. He will be joined by a rotating roster of two analysts each week, including Rod Woodson, Jamie Dukes, Terrell Davis, Mike Mayock and others. NFL.com Live also will feature NFL Network's game audio feed with Bob Papa (play-by-play) and Cris Collinsworth (analyst).
Additional interactive features will enhance NFL.com's live video program:
» Submit a Question -- Select fan questions submitted on NFL.com will be answered by NFL Network analysts.
» Live Statistics -- Real-time statistical updates accompany the video program.
» Live Blogging -- NFL.com and NFL Network experts - including those on-site at the game - provide live analysis and commentary.
» "Get NFL Network" -- Allows users who want to get NFL Network to find information on how to get it.
In addition, through NFL Mobile Live Only From Sprint, NFL Network's eight-game Thursday Night Football package will be streamed live on phones with Sprint wireless service. This marks the first time that NFL games in their entirety are streamed on a wireless device.
