)-- Superbowl-ads.com, a leading Web portal for watching and reviewing Super Bowl TV commercials, today announced support for GridCast TV, a service that allows viewers to watch Internet videos on their TVs. Viewers can watch the previous year’s Super Bowl ads on their TVs, from advertisers such as Budweiser, FedEx, Toyota, E*TRADE, and Victoria’s Secret, as well as a compilation of the top Super Bowl ads ever and this year’s ads after the broadcast.
GridCast TV can now be viewed by anyone with an Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Internet-enabled TV, or other UPnP (universal plug and play) device, without a set-top box or any additional hardware. With combined support for these popular gaming consoles, GridCast TV can reach over 40 million homes worldwide. Superbowl-ads.com joins other GridNetworks customers, including A3 Network, Salient Media, Revision3, and many others who have already begun using GridCast TV to stream high-definition Internet video to their viewers’ TVs.
Founded in 1997, Superbowl-ads.com has become a leading Web portal for watching and reviewing Super Bowl TV commercials, with video clips from prior years, surveys, news, and more on Super Bowl advertising.
