The Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs played in the first ever Super Bowl, and now 49 years later, the game will be aired on NFL Network. The Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs squared off in Super Bowl I, NFL Network will be the first network to ever replay this historic game on television.
Super Bowl I was broadcast by both NBC & the official broadcaster of the AFL- and CBS – the official broadcaster of the NFL and remains the only Super Bowl to have been broadcast live in the United States by two television networks. Considered to be the Holy Grail of sports broadcasts, the CBS and NBC tapes of the game were either lost or recorded over and no full video version of the game has existed until now.
This is cool, get your DVR’s set to catch some history.
