Four main reasons I can think of for why the NFL should have streamed the Super Bowl are:
- Allow people who are not near a tv to watch the game (I guess this really means people at work!).
- Allow people who do not own a tv to watch the game. From what I have been reading, more and more people are getting rid of their tvs and just using the internet to watch programs.
- Online coverage allows for those extra special features such as multiple camera angles.
- When there is no webcast, it is frustrating for viewers who assume that it will be available online.
Plus did I mention that it is 2009!! :)
