Super Bowl XL Commercials Available On Comcast ON DEMAND and NFL Network

Thanks to Comcast and NFL Network, fans of the "Super Bowl of Advertising" will have more options than ever to view the commercials they may have missed, or just want to see again, from Super Bowl XL. 

After the game's conclusion on Sunday, February 5, Comcast Digital Cable customers can watch NFL Network's Super Bowl XL Commercials, a special showing selected ads in an uninterrupted format initially seen during ABC's broadcast of Super Bowl XL. The special program will be available on Comcast's ON DEMAND service and on NFL Network. 

"Comcast is pleased to partner with NFL Network to bring customers an 'instant replay' of the increasingly popular commercials that air during the Super Bowl," said Page Thompson, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Video Products for Comcast. "This is another example of how Comcast offers programs that fit our customers' schedules - when and how they want to watch." 

"Super Bowl XL Commercials epitomizes the unique programming NFL Network delivers to our audience," said Steve Bornstein, NFL Network President & CEO. "With the game also featuring the 'Super Bowl of Advertising,' we believe fans and advertisers alike will enjoy seeing all the spots in one place at one time."
