For the first time ever, the Super Bowl game will be streamed online and to mobile phones.

The NFL announced Tuesday it will stream the 2012 Super Bowl, as well as wild card Saturday and the Pro Bowl through the league's website as well as through a mobile app.

NBC has the broadcasting rights to the game and the network already streams its ‘Saturday Night Football' telecasts online and to Verizon phones.

The streams will be available on the NBC and NFL websites, as well as Verizon's NFL Mobile app and the package will include additional camera angles, in-game highlights and live stats.

The Super Bowl game will take place Feb. 5 in Indianapolis.

The game is annually the most watched attraction on television. Last year's Packers-Steelers game set a record for any show with 111 million viewers.
