It's interactive on BBC Two - you can choose commentary from Five Live or American TV also.

Who's doing the main BBC commentary - people from the NFL Network? I know Sky will use Joe Buck and Troy Aikman's commentary.

The BBC will have Dick Stockton & Sterling Sharpe doing the "American Football for Newbies" commentary.

BBC will be taking the World Feed pictures and commentary offered by the NFL. The commentary team will be veteran US broadcaster Dick Stockton and former All-Pro receiver Sterling Sharpe.

If you look on the Broadcasting section, I am starting a talk on the history of American football on TV in the UK.

Will be interesting to see how the BBC handle the constant ad breaks - they must have a lot of filler material pre-prepared.

Thats disappointing again, I haven't liked the coverage by ITV and now the beeb are getting involved and I doubt they can do it justice.

Five have done a great job through the season and into the playoffs so why arn't they left alone to show the final , they deserve it.



Anyway, come on the Giants .

I was kind of hoping that we would get the ad breaks too as they're supposed to be quite spectacular

Not sure about the legalities of it, but you can usually watch it on TVU Player online (Google it).

When you say American TV, do you mean Fox or NFL International's feed?

It'll be the international feed. Only Sky will have the Fox feed.

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers? Never heard of them - will watch with intrigue.

And by the way it was infact on ITV1 live last year as well as Sky Sports 1.

I hear Mike Carlson will be on the BBC team which is great news.
