Broadcasting & Cable:

The NFL announced the league, along with broadcast partner CBS, will livestream Super Bowl XLVII on Feb. 3.

The game will be available on both CBSSports.com and NFL.com. Tthe stream will have extra features, including additional camera angles, in-game highlights, live statistics and other interactive elements.

Last year’s game was most-streamed single game with over 2 million unique visitors…representing 6.2% of total downstream Internet traffic at 9 p.m. ET for NBCSports.com.

The Super Bowl is one of the few “Event TV” broadcasts left even if many tune in just for the commercials. It will be interesting to see how CBS leverages the internet to enhance the game on your “second screen”.

    The image looks like a temple of phallus worship. Pre-steroidal, of course.

    Now they just need to blow up these stupid contracts and figure out how to stream the rest of the games. Give me a reasonable price, and allow me just to see the local games I want. Or show me commercials. But don’t tie me down any more. I get all the TV entertainment I want via the noncable services I have, live sports are the last piece of the puzzle that need to be unchained from Cable!
