CBS Putting On Full-Court Press For Super Bowl, Will Deploy 62 Cameras
Published January 9, 2013
FROM ALL ANGLES: CBS Exec Producer & VP/Production Harold Bryant said that the net will "deploy about 62 cameras" to cover Super Bowl XLVII, up from about "20 during playoff games and about 15 during the season." USA TODAY's Michael Hiestand notes after NBC last year "drew 2.1 million users to the first Super Bowl live stream, CBS will have the first live streaming of the halftime show." CBS will have "more than 50 hours" from the CBS Sports Network "plus more than 70 on-site hours from recently launched CBS Sports Radio." CBS will "erect four outdoor sets in New Orleans" (USA TODAY, 1/9).
YOU ARE LOOKING LIVE: The HOLLYWOOD REPORTER's Etan Vlessing reported CTV is "teaming up with the NFL to live-stream" the game to its online users. The exclusive deal will see CTV.ca "simulcast CTV’s conventional TV broadcast of the Super Bowl and NFL playoff games, starting this weekend with live streaming of the divisional match-ups." The online play will be "geo-gated, and feature the same Canadian commercials seen on the CTV broadcast" (HOLLYWOODREPORTER.com, 1/8).
