We've all had the experience of rushing off from work to come home and catch our favorite TV show on prime time.
Next week, many of us will hunker down to catch one of the most important TV events in America: Super Bowl. We all want to cheer along with family and friends, watch those much-awaited scintillating ads and, of course, hold our breath over who will take home the trophy.
We also know that there is a big chance we can get stuck in traffic or waiting in line at the store. These inconveniences could cause us to miss the game. The great thing about living in the Internet era is that there is a variety of media platforms on which we can watch the Seattle Seahawks duke it out with the New England Patriots.
You can catch the game on any of the following:
Computer or tablet
Whether it's an Android or iPad, it won't really matter. You can catch the game on NBCSports.com. NBC has waived the requirement for an access code for participating satellite TV and cable providers to stream Sports Live Extra. This lets viewers watch the entire game for free.
Download the NFL app and you'll be on your way to game time fun right in the palm of your hand. The application is available on BlackBerry 10, Windows, Android and iOS. Basic scores and game highlights are available in the free version of the app. Verizon subscribers who are willing to shell out $5 will enjoy a so-called premium subscription to watch all of the night's exciting playoff.
The only way you'll miss the game is if the lights go out or if your gadget's battery drains away, so don't forget to pay your utility bill or fully charge those tablets and smartphones.
Kick-off starts at 6:30 p.m. E.T. at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.
Out of the country at the moment? No problem, NFL Game Pass will give you access to all the exciting moments of the Super Bowl on Sunday.
