NBC mobile platform to offer slap shots, overhand smashes


NBC Sports said Thursday that it is adding several offerings to its mobile NBC 2Go platform, including tennis' French Open and more NHL coverage.

Coverage of the French Open, which begins May 25, joins fellow Grand Slam tournament Wimbledon, which begins next month.

The NHL package adds all playoff and regular-season games broadcast on NBC to the slate, which already includes the upcoming Stanley Cup.

NBC 2Go provides access to simulcasts of live NBC Sports events and highlights and is available to customers of the FLO TV service from MediaFLO USA and the MobiTV service. The service also provides content from NBC, MSNBC, CNBC and Bravo.

Also added are the Senior PGA Championships and the Ryder Cup, two golf competitions to complement the existing U.S. Open offering, and the action sports AST Dew Tour.

This month, the service provided access to the Kentucky Derby for the first time. The race joins Saturday's Preakness Stakes, another Triple Crown horse racing event, on the service.

Notre Dame's home football games also will continue to be offered. (partialdiff)
