Last month, Verizon signed a new deal with the NFL, exchanging its rights to be the exclusive wireless carrier for NFL games for rights to air games on a wider range of devices. That has led to a few new options for NFL fans when it comes to how they can watch games on their phones and today, Verizon announced that playoff games will be available for viewing on the Yahoo Sports app starting this weekend as will the Super Bowl next month. "Consumers in the US will be able to watch all four playoff games with one click on the Yahoo Sports app," Oath CEO Tim Armstrong told CNBC.

Following Verizon's new agreement with the NFL, NBCUniversal was granted rights to stream Sunday Night Football on smartphones and ESPN snagged mobile streaming rights to Monday Night Football. Next season, Verizon says it will also stream preseason games, Thursday Night Football, Sunday Night Football, Monday Night Football, local market games and playoff matches.
