Superbowl Online in Europe

February 3, 2012 @ 7:40 pm

The most watched event on television in the United States, the Super Bowl, is now available to watch online in Europe, for the first time ever at the National Football League (NFL) website where viewers can purchase the “Playoffs Subscription” for 14.99 Euros.

It is simple to register on the NFL site with a username and password.  Payment can be made with a credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, or Discover), which might be slightly difficult for many Dutch who do not carry credit cards but prefer debit cards. Viewers must have Adobe Flash Player, available for download on the NFL site.  There is live programming on the site between now and the Super Bowl.  The championship football game starts at 6:30 pm ET on Sunday, February 5 which is, unfortunately, 12:30 am Amsterdam.

If live viewing is not convenient, the game will be replayed on Monday night at Beer Temple in Amsterdam at Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal 250 at 7 pm Amsterdam time, for those who can avoid the news for 24 hours.
