With Super Bowl LVIII just around the corner, cable TV and streaming services are prepping for the big game. Pluto TV, a free ad-supported streaming service, is hosting a marathon of classic Super Bowl games through February.
Pluto TV’s new pop-up channel, NFL Super Bowl Classics, will stream Most Super Bowl through February 21, except I, II, and V. The channel will host live game day coverage, NFL replays, original shows, and Emmy-Award-winning films and series.
In addition to full game replays, the channel will feature NFL Films, docu-series, and specials such as History of the Super Bowl. NFL Super Bowl Classics will also feature content from NFL Throwback, which looks at the greatest Super Bowl finishes, ranks every Most Valuable Player performance, and the craziest plays of all time.
“Thanks to our incredible partners at the NFL, we have the opportunity to offer a window into NFL history, and we know audiences will be thrilled, no matter what team they root for,” said Amy Kuessner, executive vice president of programming for Pluto TV, in a statement. “The addition of NFL Super Bowl Classics channel to Pluto TV’s lineup allows fans to discover and relive those unforgettable games and moments in one place – all for free.”
NFL Super Bowl Classics dives into the NFL archives to let fans relive the best moments in Super Bowl history, including the nerve-wracking first overtime in Super Bowl LI. Fans can also rewatch New York Giants David Tyree’s jaw-dropping helmet catch in Super Bowl XLII to defeat the New England Patriot’s and ruin its perfect season in 2015 with mere seconds on the clock. And who can forget the San Francisco 49ers’ epic game-changing 92-yard drive to win Super Bowl XXIII?
Fans can also relive the repeated defeats the Buffalo Bills felt from 1990 to 1993 when they made it to the Super Bowl and lost four consecutive years. While the team has yet to secure a victory, the franchise will get to live out its dream in a film about Bills fans that will see a limited release in Upstate New York, according to Syracuse.com.
CBS Sports will offer multiplatform coverage of Super Bowl LVIII from Las Vegas on February 11 and feature CBS Sports’ presentation on CBS and Paramount+. Nickelodeon will host a slime-filled telecast just for kids.
