SiliconValley.com notes that for the first time ever, football fans will be able to download video highlights of the Super Bowl, and they will be offered exclusively through Apple Inc.‘s online iTunes Store.
The National Football League said Tuesday it will make highlights from Sunday’s game available for purchase online the following day. The download, in English or Spanish, will cost $1.99 and will be viewable on computers or iPods.
A 90-minute video of the NFL’s coverage of the Super Bowl will also be sold for $1.99.
“It’s another way for fans to relive the Super Bowl before they get to the water cooler,” said Brian Rolapp, the NFL’s vice president for media strategy.
Video highlights from the NFL’s regular-season and playoff games have been available from the iTunes Store since September.
