Tech giant Microsoft shelled out more than $400 million bucks to the NFL to get the league to make the Microsoft Surface the official tablet of the NFL.
Problem is, the TV Announcers are calling the device an iPad on the air. Now, Microsoft will coach these announcers to better identify their device.
“It’s true, we have coached up a select few,” a Microsoft spokesperson told Business Insider. “That coaching will continue to ensure our partners are well equipped to discuss Surface when the camera pans to players using the device during game.”
“Microsoft is encouraging teams to use the Surface tablets and working directly with teams to make sure all players and coaches are comfortable using the device,” the Microsoft spokesperson added.
Made they can call the Announcers on their iPhones.
