NBC to stream all Super Bowl content for free on day of game
NBC announced on Tuesday that it will stream all Super Bowl content for free on Feb. 1, including pregame coverage, the game and the halftime show, according to AdWeek.
The content will available to stream for free online and with the NBC Sports Live Extra app. Generally, users must login to the app for extended viewing, but it will not be required on Super Bowl Sunday. There will, however, still be prompts throughout the day reminding you of the enhanced experience when you login.
The stream will start at noon with pregame coverage and end after the showing of The Blacklist following the game.
NBC also streamed the Super Bowl back in 2012, however this will be the first year where streaming will also include the halftime show and the day's lead-off coverage.
The Feb. 1 game will feature the Seattle Seahawks against the New England Patriots in Glendale, Ariz. The halftime show will be performed by Katy Perry, who recently announced that Lenny Kravitz will join her.
