Watch Super Bowl Live Online

So NBC has the big game this year and similar to what they do with their Sunday Night Football games they will be streaming the Super Bowl live. Other than ESPN I cant honestly say I know of any other network doing live sports events online.

And since my initial review of Sunday Night Football being streamed live on NBC they have continued to improve the UI (even if just slightly) and the performance. So as long as no one is streaming from Netflix, Hulu or trying to watch 5 hours of Adriana Lima you should be fine with NBC’s stream.

So to you NBC I say Kudos and Thanks! Now all of you other networks please start streaming more sporting events as well. And if you happen to be out and about during the game (perhaps out on a beer or chip run) check out the Super Bowl on your mobile device.

Watch Sunday Night Football Live Online

It was another weekend of football around my house. With the Chicago Cubs going down in 3, my hope was for a good showing by my college teams and the Bears to win over the Lions.  All went well for my teams – and Dave was happy.

As I wrote up my experience with Live Streaming MLB Playoffs, I started to be upset at myself for not commenting on the better NFL experience.  So tonight, I am doing just that.

Sunday Night Football with John Madden and Al Michaels is a great way to wind down from the weekend for me.  The problem in my house has become the number of shows on Sunday nights that everyone wants to watch. It has made it difficult for me to just sit and watch, until I found out they were streaming the Sunday Night Football games online. How awesome is that, the NFL live and online?

Unlike the attempt by TBS and MLB for having MLB Playoffs Live Online , it seems that the NFL and NBC have done everything right.

Initial Sunday Night Football View

NFL Live on Sunday Night

As you can see, they give you a few views and the picture is very clear.  You can follow players around, watch the broadcast,  watch the cable cam, or pick the sideline cam. All give you great angles and if you dont zoom in on any one you can watch them all at the same time (not fully but you get an idea of what is going on everywhere).  When in this view (or even when zoomed in) and you mouse over either the right or left sides you are given the option to switch to a different view. This again, just makes it such a smooth UI to use.
