The Super Bowl will take place on Sunday afternoon and there are a couple of viewing options. For the first time ever, NBC Sports will provide a live online stream via their website.
We certainly live in quite an age. Super Bowl XLVI will be taking place on Sunday afternoon and if you have a reliable Internet connection, you will be able to watch it online, live, legally, for free.
The great people over at NBC Sports have revealed that, much like all of their Sunday Night Football broadcasts in the 2011 season, the game will be simulcast on their website at at NBCSports.com
The game begins at 3:30 PM PT / 6:30 PM ET and you can just click on over to NBCSports.com to watch the whole thing.
Complimentary online streaming is just another reason why NBC always seems to be miles ahead of the other three networks in terms of their football coverage and presentation.
