NFL playoffs get free streaming on CBS, NBC
Besides watching Super Bowl XLVIII for free online, fans can also stream wild card match-ups and playoffs.
Networks are gearing up for Super Bowl 2014, and this year online viewers are getting a little something extra: NFL playoff coverage.
Both NBC and CBS, which is the parent company of CNET, will be streaming playoff coverage for free, according to Variety.
NBC is re-upping on what it offered customers last year by streaming its two wild card match-ups scheduled for Saturday and the NFL Pro Bowl on January 24. CBS is offering pre-Super Bowl streaming for the first time this year, which means it will be showing all four of its playoff games. This means fans will be able to watch all of the AFC NFL playoffs for free online.
Fox will also offer playoff streaming, but it will only be free for customers of its Internet provider partners, like Comcast, Cablevision, and AT&T, according to Variety.
Fox is also slated to broadcast Super Bowl XLVIII on February 2 this year -- the network will offer free streaming of this game to all viewers.
For the past couple of years, TV networks have offered free streaming to the millions of people tuning into the Super Bowl. Last year, fans were offered dozens of ways to watch the game on their computers, tablets, and mobile devices via live streaming and apps. This year, viewers will surely get some of these same perks and more.
