So, I guess NBC and NFL will be streaming the Super Bowl...
I do not subscribe to cable, but I do have a cable modem which gives me ClearQAM to NBC and others. Problem is, I have a projector that I would love to see the game on but nothing to "tune" with.

Will the streamed broadcast bring me the game plus extras or just a bunch of extras? I understand it will be broadcast in "HD".

Ideally, I would like to use my laptop to stream the game via HDMI to my PJ.

What about getting a USB ClearQAM tuner stick for your laptop?

Sorry, I should have mentioned that. I did get one, the AverTV Hybrid Volar Max. It appears that my signal strength is not sufficient and the signal pixelates and also drops audio. So, I was hoping to just go with streaming if possible. (I'm going to try a CATV signal booster tonight, but, in case, I would like to get my options in order for this Sunday's big game).

i dont know specifically for the super bowl, but nbc's live sports streaming is pretty cool. it is (or at least was) silverlight based and gives you the ability to pause, rewind, and select different camera angles.

The NBC Internet stream is pretty good. It's the game and extras. There's 3-4 Camera Angles you can choose. It has a PIP feature where you can have the main game and a small PIP of a different camera angle. The main Internet stream I think is identical to what is broadcast by NBC to their partners and over the air for "Cable TV".

The only thing I worry about is the increased load for the Super Bowl and if they will be able to handle it all.
