The NFL and Microsoft, through its next generation Xbox device, are combining to upgrade interactive TV viewing of pro football games in a multiyear agreement announced Tuesday. The next step after that, perhaps as early as 2014, will be bringing technology to the sidelines on tablets.
The deal is worth $400 million over five years for the NFL, according to a person familiar with the agreement. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because financial details have not been made public.
What is going to happen when it hangs? Will they get an equipment time out? Will broadcast crews be prohibited from telling viewers why they are going back to paper? Which player will get fined because he pulls out an Apple IPad?
