Verizon Preps for Super Bowl XLVI with Smartphone App Pack

There’s no shortage of amenities we all prefer to have at our disposal on Super Bowl Sunday. But with each passing year, smartphones and football-themed apps are joining the list of staples we’ve come to know and love on game day.

Just in time for the Super Bowl this year, Verizon Wireless is giving customers a simple approach to get some of its most popular apps, including NFL Mobile Premium, Verizon Video, VZ Navigator, Visual Voicemail, Usage Controls and a Ringback Tones subscription.

Best of all, says the carrier, they come in one bundle for one monthly price.

For a limited time, customers who sign up for the Smartphone App Pack will get all six apps for $12.99 – which is less than purchasing the apps individually. If customers already have one or more of the apps, they can get the bundle with additional apps at little to no additional cost. Smartphone customers must also have a data plan.

According to the details announced this morning, the Smartphone App Pack now bestows access to the following features:

  • Live streaming of Super Bowl XLVI: For the first time ever, the Super Bowl will be streamed to select smartphones via NFL Mobile, only from Verizon.
  • Power of Control: Visual Voicemail allows subscribers to view caller and voicemail information and listen to voicemail messages with ease. Account owners can manage wireless usage with various settings and tools offered through Usage Controls.
  • High-Quality Video Entertainment: Verizon Video gives customers access to more than 250 current, full-episode TV shows from all the major broadcast networks and popular cable channels.
  • Smarter Navigation: VZ Navigator’s voice-guided directions enable customers to travel with confidence whether they’re in a familiar place and need to get around more efficiently or exploring new territory in a car or on foot.

What role – if any – will your smartphone play in the days leading up to Super Bowl Sunday?
