Mobile Technology and the Sports Experience

With the Super Bowl this weekend, hockey season underway, and baseball spring training seemingly right around the corner, mobile technology makes it easier than ever to follow all you favorite teams.

Now, sports fanatics are no longer tied to the TV when their favorite teams are playing. Mobile apps like NHL GameCenter and NFL Mobile make it easy to step away from the TV without missing a minute of the game through live audio and video broadcasts. This year’s Super Bowl game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens can be viewed live on your smartphone using NFLMobile.

Even in front of the TV, a smartphone or tablet serves as a second screen, providing fans with the information they want when they want it. The second screen feature offers score updates, player stats, and highlights of key plays and calls, without having to wait for the TV broadcast. A wireless device can even be used from the stands, enhancing the live experience by providing a wealth of knowledge at spectators’ fingertips.

Ultimately, mobile technology has made sports truly personal. Sports lovers can customize their settings to receive instant alerts about the latest news for favorite players and teams. They can engage with fellow fans across the country through social media, closely track players on fantasy teams or follow athletes on Twitter.

Whether at home or at the stadium, mobile technology brings a customized fan experience, so superfans can engage with the sports they love like never before.
