If you’re an NFL fan planning on being out and about this coming weekend or maybe just stuck in a situation where you can’t get to a television, there’s good news: Yahoo will stream all four playoff games of the NFL’s Divisional Round.
Tim Armstrong, CEO of Yahoo parent company Oath, made the announcement on Tuesday, telling CNBC, “Consumers in the U.S. will be able to watch all four playoff games with one click on the Yahoo Sports app.”
It’s all thanks to Verizon’s new deal with the NFL, announced back in December, that will enable the company to stream the games on mobile devices with no exclusivity, meaning you’ll be able to watch the games no matter who your carrier is.
How does the Verizon NFL streaming work, you ask?
– Only for smartphones (i.e. no tablet, no connected TVs)
– Only on Yahoo Sports app or Yahoo Sports mobile web
– You must enable location services
– Free for all, regardless of whether you have Verizon.

Saturday, Jan. 13, 2018 (4:35 p.m. ET): Atlanta Falcons at Philadelphia Eagles (NBC)
