YouTube gives you an early jump on 2014 Super Bowl ads

The YouTube Ad Blitz channel offers an early look at some Super Bowl commercials and will let people vote for their favorite ad once the big game is over.

If you're one of the people more interested in watching Super Bowl commercials than watching the actual game, you're in luck. YouTube has offered early access to Super Bowl commercials for those who just can't wait.

The Google-owned company on Thursday announced the Ad Blitz channel on YouTube.

The channel's main attraction is its Teasers section, showing a selection of Super Bowl commercials available now, before the game goes off. The channel also includes a Highlights section to see playoff analysis, as well as a postgame voting function that will go live after the Super Bowl and allow folks to pick their favorites.

Super Bowl XLVIII kicks off on February 2.
