For the first time ever, you can legally watch the Super Bowl on the Internet.

It's a brilliant move by the NFL, as they are targeting viewers who may not have the luxury of being at home on the big day and giving people no reason to visit sketchy Web sites that are hosting the game illegally.

NBC will air the game Sunday, February 5th at 6 p.m. ET.

MassLive.com reported that even Tom Brady himself used an illegal live stream to view the game last year, saying:

“Last year, I was rehabbing my foot in Costa Rica watching the game on an illegal Super Bowl website and now I’m actually playing in the game, so it’s pretty cool.”

This had to irk the NFL and though a legal live stream is long overdue, it's nice to see them take action and get with the times.

This consumer-friendly addition is sure to be an overwhelming success and it's safe to say the days of not being able to access a legal live stream on Super Sunday are behind us.
