NBC will stream Super Bowl XLIX online and through the Sports Live Extra app
The Seattle Seahawks are facing off against the New England Patriots for the title of Super Bowl XLIX champions this Sunday, February 1st. The game is airing on NBC, and this year, the network is treating football fans to tons of Super Bowl coverage. NBC is streaming 11 straight hours of football coverage via the NBC Sports Live Extra app, including the Super Bowl XLIX itself, the halftime show, pre-game, post-game, and even the new episode of The Blacklist that airs following the post-game coverage. NBC will also stream the game on the network’s homepage. There is no subscription or log-in required to access any of these live streams.
For those of you worried about missing out on the great ads the Super Bowl historically offers, fear not. Though the advertisements will differ between TV and digital streams, NBC will offer all in-game television ads on their website sometime after the game is over. One thing we should note, is that these streaming privileges are for tablets and desktops only. Verizon holds the rights to stream Super Bowl content exclusively to their NFL Mobile app users on mobile phones, so you’ll need to be a Big Red customer to watch the game on your smartphone.
