For the first time the online stream of the Super Bowl 50 will have the same Super Bowl ads as the TV broadcast, but there is evidence of stream only Super Bowl 50 ads.

CBS will stream the Super Bowl 50 via its CBS Sports site and apps on Roku, Apple TV, Android and Xbox One. For the first time in the history of the Super Bowl online stream, the stream will feature the same Super Bowl commercials as the air on the TV broadcast.

In a new interview with AdWeek, Tony Taranto, SVP of NFL sales confirmed again: "There's 100 percent participation, so it will be a nearly concurrent experience, both on-air and online." 

We have heard though from KFC that they are running a commercial during the CBS live stream of the Big Game. As reported the fast food chain is possibly introducing a new Colonel Sanders on Super Bowl Sunday

GoDaddy, who announced to not advertise at the Super Bowl 50, will also air a 30 second spot in the CBS live stream of the game according to a New York Times article.

This is confusing. How can the live stream of the Super Bowl have ads that are not running in the TV broadcast of the Super Bowl 50? According to Tony Taranto all Super Bowl 50 ads will also run in the online video stream. Has CBS found a way to expand the continuum of time online? We will try to get to the bottom of this.

Update: Stream-only Ads are possible because fo local market Super Bowl 50 ads.

According to AdWeek, CBS is still selling Super Bowl 50 ad slots up until hours before the Big Game, in a game of maximizing the bids for the Super Bowl 50 ads that are selling in the range of $5 million for 30 seconds this year.
