The Super Bowl Will Be Streamed Online for the First Time

If you're signed up with Verizon you'll be able to get it on your phone too.

If you're going to be watching the Super Bowl, chances are you're going to be somewhere with a big TV, a killer sound system and plenty of beer, food and friends. But real life happens, and you might not be able to get out of work or other obligations. Or you may have cut your cable and lack an antenna for your set.

NBC is taking care of you this year. For the first time ever, the Super Bowl will be streamed live online. You'll be able to check it out on the NBC or NFL website - whichever you prefer. It should be interesting to see what happens with those incredibly expensive Super Bowl commercials, whether they're aired too or if net specific commercials are shown instead.

Verizon customers get it a little better than the rest of us with this Super Bowl. You'll be able to watch the action live on your Smartphone with the NFL Mobile app. No matter what you're doing on Super Bowl Sunday, you'll be able to tune into the game.
