Verizon launches ‘spectrum’ internet banking service for NFL players
- by admin
The NFL has unveiled its first service that will allow players to connect to an internet-connected home network and make payments through it, while at the same time providing a fast, secure way for fans to purchase tickets.
Vystar, the company that is spearheading the rollout of Verizon’s broadband services, said its service will provide access to Verizon’s network “within seconds of being connected to a home network,” a similar approach to what the NFL used with its own home internet service.
Vysar, which is based in Boston, will operate on the same network as the NFL, which uses Comcast and AT&T.
Verizon has been testing the Vysar service with teams for about a year.
VyreStar said the service would be available in six regions around the world and will provide “fast, reliable, and reliable access to the most popular sports and entertainment content.”
The service will be available to teams, players and other members of the community as part of a $99-per-year membership, according to the company.
It is not clear how many players will have access to Vystar.
Vyrusat, the parent company of the Vystars, is also working on a service that would allow NFL players to purchase virtual tickets for games.
The service, which will also be available through Verizon, will provide fans the ability to buy tickets through Verizon’s website, which has a live feed of every game.
Vyxsat, which also operates a network that lets NFL players use their personal computer for games, will be launching a new service called SpectraLite that will connect to a cloud-based service to make payments and pay for tickets, Vystar said.
SpectraLites are connected to Vysars network and will allow the consumer to pay for game tickets, tickets for events, and more with a mobile device, the companies said in a statement.
SpectrumLite will be launched later this year, the statement said.
The NFL did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the service.
The teams’ move to use Verizon’s internet network will be welcomed by many fans and supporters who are frustrated with the NFL’s inability to offer their own home broadband service.
In 2016, the NFL and its teams agreed to pay Verizon $1.2 billion for a service the league called “Spectrum” that would connect fans to the internet and offer a fast and secure way to make purchases, with the goal of providing access to games and fans.
The plan did not include internet access to fans, but Verizon said it would help with that issue, according the league.
The announcement comes as Verizon is set to launch its own network for NFL games, which it will use to make money.
The league plans to begin offering the service later this month, and it will be the first major network to offer it.
