After 14 days, countless hours of coverage and storylines ranging from the Ray Lewis retirement ceremony to Alex Smith's future, the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers will finally square off in Super Bowl XLVII.
Naturally, the best way to watch the big game is in front of a huge television with a loud, rowdy group of friends. But sometimes things get in the way, like work or a faulty TV set that breaks down as the guests are arriving, causing you to curl up in the fetal position and cry.
Have no fear, because the beautiful thing about technology is that you no longer need a television to watch everything that the Super Bowl has to offer.

Advantages to Watching Online
It has gotten to the point where watching the Super Bowl online is just as good an experience as watching it on television. You are still going to get the same feel from the crowd and all the action in high definition, assuming you have a computer that can handle the feed.
On top of that, you get all of the extras that you will get watching the game on CBS. You get the halftime show with Beyonce and, perhaps most appealing of all, the commercials.
If you have something else that you want to watch on network television airing at the same time, even though almost everything will be in repeats, you can flip the TV to that station and check it out while the Super Bowl is on.
In this digital age we live in, it is a testament to the NFL and the networks that they are making the Super Bowl so easy to access without sacrificing the quality and spectacle of the event.
