    so as of this date, 8/11/11, there is no charge for this app? i just downloaded it as the eagles are playing a pre-season game tonite and i live out of the area. i can’t find any price info anywhere about this app.

      Good question. It’s been a source of confusion since Verizon took over the NFL mobile rights last year. There doesn’t seem to be any clarity. You need an unlimited data plan, but you may or may not need to also have a VCAST subscription to view video once the season begins. That’s about as much as I know, unfortunately.

      I tried to get some clarity from Verizon last year and got a different answer from each person I spoke with.

        Yes, that saga has started. $30 for Verizon was not enough. Verizon now charges $10 for a service they said would be free. This is a clear bait and switch move and the FTC needs to get involved. I don’t understand why I need to pay $10 a month for streaming a game to my phone from my Wi-Fi connection that has nothing to do with Verizon.
