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 will be also 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.

As raised earlier this week, we have found out that there are Super Bowl 50 ads that only run in the online stream. Now we know why that is.

KFC and GoDaddy are advertisers that bought from CBS Super Bowl 50 ads that only run online in the live stream. The reason why CBS has slots in the live stream despite streaming all Super Bowl 50 ads that it airs in the broadcast are local market Super Bowl 50 commercials. There are certain time slot that are reserved for local limited commercials. In that time the live stream shows stream-only ads.

Local Super Bowl 50 ads include for instance the Colonial Williamsburg Super Bowl 50 Ad, that only runs in Washington, New York, and Philadelphia. Find out how to stream the Super Bowl 50 online.
