Chiefs fans who live well away from the KC area have (so far) been fortunate to listen to one of the few remaining free Internet streaming audio broadcasts of live NFL football coverage in the US. This is via KCFX's live stream of Chiefs' games. What about the Super Bowl? Marv Albert and Boomer Esiason do excellent radio announcing for CBS/Westwood One football coverage. The Super Bowl should be no exception and those of you within over-the-air range of a Westwood One affiliated radio station can hear them announce it while watching on TV.
Those of us beyond over-the-air range of a Westwood One affiliated radio station, will either hope for a digital TV signal, or be prepared to pay Sirius Radio or NFL Field pass to hear radio coverage of the game. CBS has a live football audio streaming blackout policy and, even though Westwood One was divested from CBS in 2008, it appears they are following CBS policy. This is the current trend in Internet radio around football. The commercials are left in, so money is still made, and limiting audio shrinks the audience base, so it seems not to make sense to black them out, but that's how it goes. Anyone know a workaround for this for the Super Bowl?
