Long gone are the days of watching football on a blurry black and white tube television. For many diehard NFL fans, HD-TV is now a necessity when watching the game. The sweat, the close ups of the players’ expressions, and the hit coverage can make viewers feel like they’re on the field, intensifying the game-watching experience. Technology is an ever-evolving factor in sports production, and it’s affecting the way that NFL players play the game, and how viewers experience it both in the stadium and on television. Stadiums are being built that are WiFi equipped and Fanvision is becoming more prevalent and integrated, to name a couple changes. NFL players are becoming better than ever partly due to the new technology that allows them to excel, and viewers are able to optimize their experience through technology that is truly a game-changer.
