Super Bowl XLII will be telecast in Australia for the last time on SBS. In 2009 it moves to TEN.
The match between the New York Giants and the New England Patriots screens live at 10am AEST on Monday February 4 on SBS. It repeats later that evening at 10:50pm.
The half time entertainment this year features Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. There will be promotion of other FOX programming with American Idol’s Ryan Seacrest as host plus Paula Abdul launching her new song. Wow.
Super Bowl is also traditionally a big forum for launching US ads and new programming.
