Universo also will air two other NBC’s Thursday Night Football games, NBC’s annual Thanksgiving night game, and NBC’s two NFL Playoff games.

Universo’s telecasts will also be streamed live via the Telemundo Deportes En Vivo app and TelemundoDeportes.com.

Streaming will be available on desktops, tablets and connected TVs.

"We are thrilled to again present NFL regular-season and play-off games, including the Super Bowl, on Universo to the growing Hispanic football audience,” said Ray Warren, president of Telemundo Deportes. “Combined with the FIFA World Cup next year, the Spanish-language telecast of these high-profile NFL games, including the Super Bowl, reinforces Telemundo Deportes' commitment to bring the top global sports events in Spanish-language television and digital platforms to our diverse sports audience.”
