NFL Media Notes
Published December 20, 2012
SUPER STREAM: The NFL yesterday announced that coverage of CBS' Super Bowl XLVII and NBC's Pro Bowl and Wild Card playoff games will be streamed live online and on mobile phones, in part through NFL Mobile from Verizon. NFL.com and CBSSports.com will stream the Super Bowl, and NBC's three games will be streamed on NFL.com and NBCSports.com. Complementing that stream will be extra features such as camera angles and in-game highlights. Last year's first live stream of a Super Bowl in the U.S. drew 2.1 million users (NFL).
GREEN SCREEN: In Milwaukee, Bob Wolfley reported the first production of NFL films, entitled "They Call It Pro Football," was among 25 films "chosen for inclusion in the Library of Congress' National Film Registry." The registry was "created in 1989," and the clip of the film "carries images of Lambeau Field and some sideline chatter from Packers' running back Paul Hornung." Other films with a sports connection among the 25 chosen were "The Corbett-Fitzsimmons Title Fight" (1897) and "A League of Their Own" (1992) (JSONLINE.com, 12/19).
