I'm surprised that the NFL is allowing the feed to be unencrypted. Who is this feed intended for? I haven't looked at the CBS network feeds, but I suspect that they are FTA as well.
It appears to be a backhaul for the broadcaster in Japan airing the game, though the English world feed commentary from NFL Network is available along with the Japanese commentary. There are at least a couple of other backhauls in the clear now too (one for Mexico, one for Quebec) as well as the CBS and CTV fronthauls.
I wouldn't say it is the worst halftime show, I actually liked some of it. The light show was fantastic and the music was very good on my end. I really cranked it up when Beyonce did the song "You should have put a ring on it" Very good bass and dynamic range for a compressed video and audio source over a satellite. Again nothing extraordinary or anything, but good.

I miss the days when I had the C and Ku band dish in the back yard. Loved the live feeds.

Wish they wouldn't waste time with a halftime show. Make it life a task game and have a normal halftime. I'm okay with Beyonce, but that was just dancing with no singing. Plus the lyrics to all her songs include only five words. It was more a celebration of her than entertainment.
Beyonce's vocals might not be prerecorded but unless the NFL is giving a Buick away to everyone who screams like they're on Oprah, the crowd sound is certainly enhanced.
I loved the band. Oh, wait a minute. What band? A drummer?
But she did look fantastic and performed beautifully. It's just that the songs are weak, to put it nicely.
I thought the production was great too. I still can't believe how they transform that field that fast and mange to not have any technical disasters. Great work folks!
