Super Bowl XLVI Streaming

Whilst TV viewers enjoy the pre-game hype and now infamous ad breaks online viewers will be able to benefit from a choice of multiple viewing angles and the ability to rewind the action.

"We don't want to limit ourselves to people not in front of the TV," NBC's Vice President of Sports Digital Media, Rick Cordella said. "The playoffs are appointment viewing. People schedule their day around it."

"By adding multiple camera angles, HD-quality video, DVR controls along with social interactivity, our online streaming represents a compelling, second-screen experience that nicely complements NBC's on-air presentation."
