NBC airs the Super Bowl on Feb. 5 from Indianapolis, and will also stream the game on and Verizon users will be able to watch via NFL Mobile, NBC added in its announcement on Tuesday.

It’s nothing too new for NBC, though. The network has been streaming its Sunday night football games for several years, and usually average about 200,000-300,000 streams, according to the Associated Press, with around 21 million watching on TV. Last year’s Green Bay Packers-Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl clocked 111 million viewers.
