Never miss an update.

Front-row seats are always at the top of the wish list for the diehard sports fan, but for those not at the game, a smartphone or tablet is the perfect way to stay up to date on all of the latest news, scores, player stats and more. With 4G LTE devices such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab™ 7.7 and Spectrum™ by LG, fans can stay connected across the country.

Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE network is not only about speed, but delivering content and features in ways that are changing the way mobile users interact in their personal and business lives.

In addition to real-time game updates and posting pictures of all the action to Facebook or Twitter while on the go, Verizon Wireless customers – be they faithful fans or sports bloggers – can also take advantage of some great sport apps, such as ESPN™ SportsCenter, to gain instant access to game schedules, video, expert sports commentary and team rosters.

The next few months will be a busy season for sports fans. With upcoming drafts in football baseball and hockey, baseball’s opening day, the start of racing season and playoffs for the NBA and hockey, sports fans have many reasons to grab a tablet or smartphone to keep up with the latest news. Using the following apps and a 4G LTE-enabled device, fans can be assured that they will be the first to know the news.

  • ESPN SportsCenter (Free)

These apps and more run on the nation’s fastest 4G network and can be used with one of a number of Verizon Wireless ultra-thin, lightweight devices, making it easy to carry in the stands, to the local sports bar or at home on the couch.
