SEATTLE – It’s a foregone conclusion that the vast majority of Americans will somehow, some way, find a TV to sit in front of to watch the Super Bowl Sunday. It is, after all, usually the single most-watched televised event each year.

But there will be a few who may be working that day who do not have access to a television. For the first time ever, they will be able to watch it online.

Join us on Twitter @king5seattle and @king5sports as we watch the game with you on Sunday.

NBC will stream the entire game and pre-game festivities, starting at 11 a.m. Seattle time, on its website.The web experience will include extra camera angles and the ability to replay Super Bowl commercials.

The network already offers a similar service for its regular season Sunday night games, and reportedly says it gets more than 200,000 unique visitors per game.

For those who would want to watch it the old fashioned way – on a ridiculously large television – kickoff is set for 3:29 p.m. on KING 5.
