The most-watched television event is almost here.
Super Bowl XLVI will take place on Feb. 5, 2012, at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana. NBC will be broadcasting the game that kicks off at 6:25 PM eastern time, but will have several hours of pre-game coverage.
The NFL announced that the Super Bowl will be streamed online and to phones, and will be available on the league's and network's Web sites and through Verizon's NFL Mobile app.
Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth are the game's broadcasters, while Bob Costas will be a part of the pre-game coverage. Former American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson will sing the national anthem, while Madonna is the half-time show performer.
Commercials are always a big reason to watch the game. A 30-second spot will cost roughly $3.5 million.
The game features the winner of the National Football Conference (NFC) and the winner of the American Football Conference (AFC). The New York Giants and the San Francisco 49ers are vying for the NFC, while the Baltimore Ravens and the New England Patriots battle for the AFC title.
Last year, the Green Bay Packers defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers, 31-25. Aaron Rodgers was the Most Valuable Player.
