MONTREAL, Jan. 31, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Super Bowl XLVIII will air this Sunday, February 2 on Bell Mobile TV, enabling more than a million Bell customers to watch the live broadcast of the NFL's annual championship wherever they may be on Bell's world-leading 4G wireless networks.
All viewers of the Super Bowl in Canada will also be the first to see the lead advertisement in Bell's extensive multimedia marketing campaign for the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games.
"Only Bell lets you watch the Super Bowl wherever you are, and the big game has consistently been the most-watched program on our Mobile TV service each year. Now more Canadians than ever have on-the-go access to the biggest TV event in North America with Bell Mobile TV," said Wade Oosterman, President of Bell Mobility and Residential Services, and Chief Brand Officer at Bell.
