It works like this, a subscription (or Season Pass) to Follow Your Team costs US$24.99 or US$1.99 per episode. The day after your team’s game you receive an email notification to download an 8-12 minute video with highlights of the game. It was perfect for me to catch the highlights of the Eagles game that I missed while I was at ACL this weekend. Too bad the ‘birds lost in OT and Kearse got a season-ending injury. I’m actually glad that I missed the game.
In addition to individual team highlights iTunes also sells a Season Pass to the NFL Network’s NFL GameDay for US$19.99 or US$1.99 per episode. NFL GameDay is hosted by Rich Eisen with Steve Mariucci and Deion Sanders. The all-inclusive Sunday night wrap-up show offers the most comprehensive NFL coverage on television, with highlights from every NFL game plus post-game reaction and expert analysis. New episodes are supposed to be available each Sunday night at 11:30pm ET, but week 2′s GameDay didn’t arrive until midnight eastern time last night (Tuesday). Perhaps it was delayed to include the Monday night game?
NFL GameDay is 90 minutes on the tube, but only 70 minutes on iTunes thanks to the lack of commercials. If you’re into football and can’t always be planted in front of the plasma screen all weekend. Check it out!
