The NFL has announced a partnership that will deliver content to fans around the world through YouTube, combining the world’s most popular sports league with the world’s largest video platform.
The league has created a new channel on YouTube, and video directly viewable for Google Search users, this partnership will enable fans to engage with NFL video content on PCs, tablets, and mobile phones.
This will also make it easier for blogs and other websites to provide their readers with NFL highlights by embedding the YouTube clips onto their page. The highlights can be located at YouTube.com/NFL, and will allow viewers to access game previews, in-game highlights, post-game recaps as well as clips featuring news, analysis, fantasy football advice, and other select content from NFL Network and NFL.com.
The official NFL channel on YouTube and Google search results will also contain in-game highlights from Super Bowl XLIX.
"Partnering with YouTube and Google provides the NFL unique access to millions of highly engaged fans through the global leader in video and search," said Hans Schroeder, Senior Vice President, Media Strategy, Business Development, & Sales for the National Football League. "We continue to see an insatiable appetite for digital video content, and this partnership further expands fans’ ability to discover and access NFL content throughout the year."
Additionally, official NFL game highlights and content will be available through Google Search. A simple Google search will display official NFL video along with related news and information all delivered to the user in one distinct box at the top of the search results.
Kickoff time and broadcast information for every NFL game will also be prominently displayed in Google Search. Days from the kickoff of Super Bowl XLIX, the newly launched NFL channel will contain clips of many of the top plays, games, and performers from the 2014 season, as well as content featuring the sights and sounds from Arizona and previewing the matchup between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks.
This will make it easier for us at Cincy Jungle and the rest of the SB Nation blogs to bring you guys more highlights during and after games.
