Acceptance Speech At Republican Convention
BIGGER PLAYBOOK: NBC is streaming its NFL coverage this season for free on NFL.com and NBCSports.com, and USA TODAY's Michael Hiestand notes beginning with Redskins-Giants, viewers can "choose between four angles -- end zone, sideline, the overhead cable-cam and a camera isolated on one player -- taken by NBC's 22 TV cameras." The net's TV coverage "won't change," but an "online producer in an NBC production truck will pick up the shots ... for Web coverage, allowing users to choose how many shots they want simultaneously." Online coverage also will offer "slightly fewer ads than TV does." Additionally, NFL Digital Dir Noah Fischbach said that analyst Cris Collinsworth and reporter Andrea Kremer, as well as an NFL Network analyst, will "contribute to a real-time blog" (USA TODAY, 9/4).
