thursday_night_football Yesterday Adobe and the NFL teamed up and announced that Adobe® Flash® will be used to deliver live online video streaming of NBC Sunday Night Football games on NFL.com and NBCSports.com.

The first game was broadcast last night and opinions thus far have been Luke warm:

Some complained that the video was pixelated and jumpy Some complained that there was no full screen mode.

Ok Flash didn’t brake any new ground but at least they didn’t melt and they have at least proved Flash Media Server is able to Stream Live TV on a large scale too. (P.S and before anyone mentions youtube…that’s not Live TV).

Please leave comments and let me know your experience of the broadcast.
