2012 Super Bowl + Madonna Halftime Show to Be Streamed Live
No television? No problem! NBC and the National Football League announced today that the Super Bowl, featuring the highly-anticipated halftime performance from Madonna, will be streamed live online for the first time.
The network says the big game will be shown on NBCSports.com and NFL.com. Viewers will have access to HD video, various camera angles and other interactive elements that are usually available for NBC’s Sunday night games. Verizon users will also be able to stream the game on their mobile phones, so even those on the move won’t have to miss a minute of Madge’s performance.
While Madonna hasn’t confirmed a setlist for the big event, reports are that she’ll be playing her new track ‘Gimme All Your Luvin’ with Nicki Minaj and M.I.A., and that she’s also considering performing ‘Vogue,’ ‘Holiday,’ ‘Ray of Light’ and ‘Music.’
Last year’s game featuring the Packers and Steelers, with halftime entertainment from the Black Eyed Peas, was the most-watched television program in U.S. history, with 111 million viewers. Super Bowl XLVI takes place on Feb. 5 from Indianapolis.
