    Hi lewis john,

    The Super Bowl will be simulcast and available for catch up from about mid morning tomorrow.

    Thanks

    Hi Aaron,

    This webpage doesn't suggest that the full game will be available on iPlayer. It says that only the 30mins *SUPER BOWL: THE BIGGEST SHOW ON EARTH* will be on.

    news.bbc.co.uk/sport...

    Could it be updated please? Otherwise you will fool people (like me) into assuming that it will not be available.

    You can watch the game live in high definition from 2255 GMT on BBC ONE, where New York Giants legend Tiki Barber will join Jake Humphrey in the studio. A stream of the programme will run on the BBC Sport website (UK only).


    There is no mention that the live broadcast will be on iPlayer as a catchup programme. I know that the iPlayer site now says that the live game will be *available soon* but that isn't what it said Friday, so there is a problem with communication.smiley - sadface

    Hey Aaron

    Greatly enjoyed superbowl, wanted to download it (my bandwith is too slow to stream) but the download is greyed out.

    Is this something to do with licensing? I have the desktop installed.

    Many thanks

    Generally most sport programmes are only licensed to the BBC for streaming and not download.

    Hi ButchCassidy01,

    I'm sorry but we don't have the rights to have the Superbowl available for download.

    Thanks
