Let's be honest, folks—there's no real reason for you to miss the Super Bowl. Ever.

Even if you don't like football—and yes, there are those among us who don't care for the greatest sport ever invented—there are still parties to attend, commercials to watch and halftime shows to completely ignore. 

Come for the wings, stay for the commercials, use the bathroom at halftime. That's what I tell people who don't like football every February.

But circumstances may arise that will separate you from your television: work, the cable suddenly becoming disconnected, your television spontaneously combusting or some other act of God.

Even if you are the victim of one of these disasters, fret not, for the big game will still be available to you. That's right, folks, you can stream it. Oh, the wonder of the Interwebs

And watching the game online has its advantages. Loved a commercial? Watch it On Demand online. Want a different camera angle? CBS' online coverage will allow you to view the game from the angle that best suits your viewing needs.

I know, it's blowing my mind, too. Here's what you need to know to ensure you don't miss a snap, sack or highlight-reel touchdown.


When: Sunday, Feb. 3 at 6:30 p.m. ET

Where: Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana

Watch: CBS; NFL Mobile


Features of CBS Streaming and Other Goodies

Yes, you can watch any commercial you liked again. Even cooler, you can select from several camera angles to optimize your viewing experience.

But there's more.

During the game, CBS will run a streaming Twitter feed to accompany the coverage. Here's something else you might like, literally: If you "like" the The Sports Feed by Getty Images on Facebook, you can view photos uploaded by top photographers during the game.

Pretty groovy, right?

What this all boils down to is that you have no excuse to miss any of Sunday's action. So don't.
