How to watch Super Bowl XLVII

Super Bowl XLXVII is almost here, and there have never been so many ways for fans in the UK to get close to the live action.

While the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens are in New Orleans preparing for Sunday's showdown in the Mercedes Benz Superdome, three teams of UK broadcasters are out there preparing to bring the world's most spectacular sporting event into your homes.

Sky Sports 1HD kicks off its live game coverage at 10.30 p.m. from New Orleans with host Kevin Cadle joined by regular analysts Neil Reynolds and Cecil Martin, the former Philadelphia Eagles fullback. Of course, if you are not by a television screen you can follow the Sky coverage on Sky Go.

BBC2, the BBC HD Channel and BBC Online kick-off their broadcast from New Orleans at 11.00 p.m. Presenter Mark Chapman and expert Mike Carlson will be joined by former New England Patriots linebacker and current NFL Network analyst Willie McGinest, a three-time Super Bowl champion. The game will then be available on the BBC iPlayer the following day.

BBC Radio 5Live's coverage begins at 11.00 p.m. with Darren Fletcher leading the way. Alongside him in the commentary box in New Orleans will be another Super Bowl winner, former Indianapolis Colts linebacker Rocky Boiman. The BBC 5Live radio commentary will also be available as an interactive option on BBC's TV broadcast.
