Go90 to Live Stream Super Bowl 50 for Verizon Wireless Customers

/ Feb 3, 2016

Super Bowl 50 Go90 Verizon NFL

Verizon is making good on its promise to bring high profile sports content to Go90. Today, the telecommunications giant announced that its Verizon Wireless customers will able to stream Super Bowl 50 live on the mobile video platform this Sunday.

The game, which pits Carolina Panthers against the Denver Broncos, kicks off on at 6:30 p.m. ET at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Ca., and will be carried live by linear TV network CBS and streaming platforms Go90 and NFL mobile.

Leading up to the Super Bowl, Go90 will be live streaming three concerts from the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco, 45 miles northwest of the stadium. The sold-out shows – headlined by Hunter Hayes (Feb. 4), Fall Out Boy (Feb. 5) and Skrillex (Feb 6) – will be available to stream for free by all Go90 users, whether or not they’re Verizon Wireless customers, as part of the platform’s original streaming concert series.

The Super Bowl comes to Go90 via its partnership with NFL Networks and CBS Sports. It also has a deal with the NBA to carry the league’s slam-dunk contest during All-Star Weekend, as well as highlights, original programming and a handful of live games. Go90 is also dipping it toes into sports-related scripted programming. Last month, it announced “Now We’re Talking,” a new sports-themed comedy series produced by Warner Bros.’ short-form production unit Blue Ribbon Content, debuting in the spring.

Launched last fall, Go90 features a wide range of content from companies such as AwesomenessTV, Comedy Central, Discovery Communications, Endemol Beyond, ESPN, Machinima, Maker Studios, MTV, New Form Digital, Nickelodeon, Scripps Networks Interactive, StyleHaul, Tastemade and Vice Media.
