NFL Puts Super Bowl Online

The Super Bowl will stream this year for the first time (legally) on the Web sites of both the NFL and NBC. NBC has been streaming their coverage of the Sunday night games on their website throughout the year so this really is little more than an extension of that service but seems to be making a lot of news right now (for example, ).

This is great but my English friends have been watching the games online for years using a site that might be of questionable legality (I'm not a lawyer, let alone someone well versed in international copyright law so you'd be better off doing your research on the subject).

I know a lot of people in my area that would love to be able to choose which games they watch instead of watching the local team. The Lions might be fair this year but we've had many, many years when they sucked.
