Football fans will have a new way to stream games this season, as Verizon Media announced it’s bringing unauthenticated NFL live streaming to its Yahoo Fantasy Football app, in addition to its Yahoo Sports app. Fans will get all local and primetime games on their mobile devices.
Verizon Media also announced it’s partnering with several news organizations to create XR (extended reality) news stories. Allying with USA Today, the Associated Press, Time, and NowThis, Yahoo News and Verizon’s Ryot Studio will create immersive news stories that give a deeper understanding of issues. The results will live on Yahoo News. Two of the first stories will give new views on immigration at the southern boarder and fighting fires in California. For advertisers, the company notes, more XR content means more places to insert XR ads.
