How is anyone suppose to watch football games, video, when Verizon offers such a measly amount of data???

Video does use more data than regular web browsing.

WSJ says watching 5 games per month = 1.9GB.

So that's it then, no more web browsing
for the rest of the month. How sad for Vzn customers. All that money for a smartphone & service, and only 5 games a month, then no more data left for web browsing.

Users will have to rely on WI-FI as much as possible. Don't have TV at home but have WI-FI, watch game on phone. At in-laws for dinner on Sunday, use their WI-FI, Wife makes you go shopping at the mall, use WI-FI.

Are there really enough $5 a month subscribers to this to make it worth 1 BILLION dollars over the next four years?? Seems like other subscribers are chipping in on a service they don't get.

So your suggesting to pay for Internet twice, $30/mo to Vzn, then $30-$50/mo to a cable company for Internet, wow, people must be rich!

And as much as you guys "think" theres wifi every 5ft in this world, therr isn't, and when there is, 90+% of the time, it's secured.

Mmm. I am pretty sure the NFL app on Verizon only works while on network not on WiFi if I am not mistaken. As far as using WiFi on the phone its understandable. Its not really a big deal but I mean its kinda pointless to have so much great stuff for your phone to use but a small limit of usage is allowed per month. Like the ATT commercial says its not complicated "More is less" hahahahahaha

On network only? That's a bummer. I guess you'll have to be a fourth quarter watcher. Watch only when it really matters in the end.

I left Verizon because the way they pieced together their services seemed like price gouging to me. If I was going to get a data plan, I was going to get something for my money other than good coverage. That's why I went to Sprint.

But that's not really my point. I know it has been a while and their pricing structure has since changed, but I checked into all the pricing before I left Verizon. At the time they offered a TV service separate from their data plans, and then the NFL service was additional to that. But I think the NFL games were considered part of the TV service, and did not count towards your data. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
