  • 1. RECULL DE PREMSA – PRESS CLIPPING SETMANA: 5/2015 2 Febrer 2015 SECCIÓ: BEACONS – EVENTS NFL's first Super Bowl app is only for those in the stadium on game day If you're headed to Super Bowl XLIX in Phoenix this year, you're probably not thinking about the TV commercials you'll miss. But the NFL rolled out its first ever Super Bowl in-stadium app on Monday that will allow ticketholders to experience the game just like those watching back home on the couch. The Super Bowl Stadium App, born out of an NFL partnership with Verizon, will give game day attendees within the University of Phoenix Stadium stadium in Glendale, Arizona, the ability to watch commercials and instant replays from four different camera angles (zoom and pause capabilities too) and access the venue's seating and concession maps. The app, available for download now for Windows, iOS, Android smartphones, works with geo-fencing beacons, which are tiny sensors that use Bluetooth technology to detect smartphones. When the beacons sense a smartphone, the app can send tailored information to those only nearby— in this case, the stadium walls. "If you download the app from home and you're not at the stadium, it won't work," Michelle McKenna- Doyle, the chief information officer for the NFL, told Mashable. "It's based on several other apps already being used by football clubs at their home stadiums and is a part of a larger effort by the league to incorporate technology into the fan experience and other parts of the game." It's also an extension of the league's year-round NFL Mobile app, a hub for live streaming, real-time scores and related tweets, photos and stats (like speed, distance traveled and acceleration on the field).
