Just in time for NFL Kickoff and Fantasy Football season, fans can now download the new NFL app for both Xbox One and Windows 10 devices – for free.
In the video above, I talk to Jeff Tran, Microsoft’s Director of Sports Marketing, to show some of the exciting new updates that are available right now to give fans an unmatched, truly personalized NFL game day experience, including:
* Dive deeper into plays with Next Gen Stats. An exciting new addition to the app this year, fans can view previously unseen data, such as player speed and distance travelled. Fans can also relive enhanced highlights, change viewing angles to follow all 22 players on the field, use interactive player maps and see exactly how their fantasy running back found the gap in coverage.
* Bring Fantasy Football to your TV with real-time scoring updates, NFL.com fantasy highlights, and the ability to manage your teams across multiple leagues.
* Get personalized Notifications and Highlight Reel gives fans on-demand highlights from their favorite teams, players, and NFL.com Fantasy team. Combine that with real-time notifications, and fans can now stay on top of the action from across the league whether they are watching live NFL games or gaming.
Not only will fans experience cutting edge Next Gen Stats data married with enhanced replays from their favorite teams on the big screen, but Xbox is also offering a Next Gen Stats Pick’em contest*. The season-long contest gives fans the opportunity to make predictions on Next Gen Stats each week to win prizes like signed NFL memorabilia and tickets to Super Bowl 50.
Stay tuned for more updates throughout the season as Microsoft celebrates the NFL’s golden anniversary and imagines the possibilities for The Next 50.
*The Next Gen Stats Pick ‘Em Contest is currently available on Xbox One and will be added to the Windows 10 app in late September.
