ESPN Deportes landed the Spanish-language broadcast rights for Super Bowl 50, which will be televised February 7 at 6 pm ET.
NBC Universo got the rights this year, capitalizing on the broadcast for the launch of the newly rebranded cable network formerly known as mun2.
Fox Deportes was the first network in the U.S. to broadcast the Super Bowl in Spanish, airing the game in 2013 and 2014.
ESPN Deportes already telecasts weekly Monday Night Football games in Spanish throughout the NFL regular season, as well as a Wild Card Playoff game, and the Pro Bowl.
ESPN Deportes’ Monday Night Football play-by-play commentator Álvaro Martín , former NFL kicker, Super Bowl champion and analyst Raúl Allegre, and sideline reporter John Sutcliffe will call the game from Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA.
Leading up to the game, the network will present comprehensive, week-long multimedia coverage beginning Monday, Feb. 1. On Super Bowl Sunday, ESPN Deportes will also air a 90-min pregame special at 4:30pm and a postgame show.
Additionally, ESPN Deportes Radio will broadcast the Super Bowl for the third consecutive year as part of a separate agreement with the NFL.
