Following the success of last year’s online transmission of NFL Sunday Night Football games, the NFL is going one step further this year. You can watch all Sunday night football games of the 2009 season live online in HD. The HD player that will be used for the telecast will feature DVR style controls, allowing the user to go backwards to watch previous plays!!!
The HD quality player from NBCSports will use Microsoft’s Silverlight technology. This is the same player that NBC used during the telecast of Beijing Olympics. The following features will be available on the player:
1. Full DVR functionality
2. Ability to open the player in the middle of a game and go back all the way to the start of the game. You can also rewind just as much as you like if you only want to go back a certain plays.
3. Four additional camera angles will also be available in the player.
4. Highlights and online-only sideline reports.
5. Markers for all key plays – so that you can watch any of the key plays by pointing the mouse at the corresponding play marker.
6. NFL expert Mike Florio will provide detailed analysis of every game and will also be available to take questions from fans online.
