For the first time in the history of the internet, the Super Bowl will be legally streamed online. NBC, which is broadcasting the 2012 Super Bowl, will stream the game at NBCSports.com, and will include features such as exclusive online camera angles, in-game highlights, in-game tweets from Jimmy Fallon and the ability to watch commercials on-demand.
The game starts at 5:30 p.m. CST, but NBC will also be simulcasting its pregame show, which begins at 1 p.m. CST, online as well. Though it seems a bit crazy that the Super Bowl hasn't been streamed online before this year, the practice will likely be repeated, and improved, by the other networks in years to come. But for now, its NBC, which has broadcasted its Sunday night games online this season, that is taking the plunge.
