America’s biggest television event, the Super Bowl, is going to be streamed live to computers and mobile devices for the first time ever. Football! Everywhere! Yeah! Along with the Super Bowl, fans will get to peep NBC’s Wild Card playoff games and the Pro Bowl (snooze) online too.
NBC already does the web streaming for its Sunday Night broadcast so since they’re broadcasting the Super Bowl, it only makes sense that you’ll get the same HD broadcast with DVR controls, different camera angles, highlights, statistics and more. That way you can see Rodgers and Brady (or maybe Tebow!) go at each other in the gridiron.
On mobile phones, it looks like live streaming is limited to just Verizon phones through the NFL Mobile app. One thing you will miss on a live stream of the Super bowl though: commercials. [NBC Sports]
