NFL to stream games over Internet using Flash


After using Microsoft’s Silverlight, an Adobe Flash competitor, to stream the Olympics over the Internet, NBC has decided to jump to drop Silverlight in favor of Flash for streaming NFL games online.

No word on exactly why the change was made, but I’d imagine it has something to do with Microsoft paying NBC to be used for the Olympics but not paying for NBC to use it for the NFL games, so NBC went with the one with the highest market share, which is Flash.

While watching the game online, the interactive version will allow you to switch camera angles, view picture-in-picture playback, view live stats and interact with the commentators in real-time.

Check out the first broadcast this Thursday between the New York Giants and Washington Redskins.
