Super Bowl 2012 Kickoff Time, TV Schedule, Live Online Stream And More

It's finally here. After a full season of waiting (and perhaps an even longer two weeks since the San Francisco 49ers came up just short), Super Bowl XLVI will be getting underway in just a few hours. Even if you don't have a rooting interest in the game (and certainly no one would be able to blame you), we're pretty sure that almost all of you will be watching. How could you not? It's the Super Bowl! Will Rob Gronkowski play? Will Bill Belichick get his revenge and then retire? Will Eli Manning get a second ring and finally be worthy of being mentioned in the same breath as his brother? We're just hours away from knowing all these answers.

We have all of your viewing information right here in one handy place.

Time: Kickoff is scheduled for 3:29 PM PT/ 6:29 PM ET at Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis, IN

TV Coverage: The game will be televised nationally on NBC. Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth will have the call from the booth.

Online Streaming: NBC will be streaming the game live, for free, at

Odds: The Patriots are the very slight favorites, according to our friends over at OddsShark. Oddsmakers are predicting New England to win by between 2.5 and 3 points.
