year being played in the heart of silicon valley, you know it needs to handle an onslaught of techies. on sunday at levi's stadium in santa clara, california, there will be 72 thousand football fans that want to tweet, facebook, instagram, snapchat, periscope, and peach their hashtag superbowl 50 selfies -- and this stadium will be ready. opened in 2014, levi's stadium is the most high-tech football venue, and for the big game it is wired with 70 miles of wi-fi cabling, with one internet access point to every 100 seats within the bowl. the stadium has 10 times more bandwidth than the nfl mandates at other stadiums. last year's super bowl in arizona saw 6.4 terbytes of data transfered, and this year could easily surpass that. and the tech is not just to help get get fans online - it's to help get them drunk. there's app where fans can order drinks to be delivered to their seats. if you're one of the 110 million expected to watch the game on tv, well you can watch it for free. the game is broadcasted on cbs, cnet's parent company, and if you have an over-the-air digital antenna you can pick it up. but it's also streaming live on the cbs sports website and cbs sports app -- and it's free to stream even if you don't subscribe to cable. of course there are always some people who watch the big game for the commericals. companies are spending as much as $5 million dollars for a 30-second ad. and for the first time amazon will have a super bowl spot.

you read up on our guide to how to get your tv ready and adjust the settings so the display and sound controls are primed for maximum football enojyment. here's one tip: you want to adjust the color with green on your screen to make sure it's not too dull, yellow or too vibrant - because green is the most common color you'll see in the game. the movie or cinema preset mode tends to be best for green than any other picture mode. but if you can't watch the game, you don't have to feel like you're missing out. computers have been working on simulating the outcome. (source ea sports: 02;23;08 - 02;39;04)the madden nfl video game says the carolina panthers will take home the title against the denver broncos 24-20. they take the lead 17-0 atathalftime, and the broncos come back with 20 points but panthers quarterback cam newton dives into the endzone with only one minute left for the game winning touchdown. the makers of the game, electronic arts, have correctly guessed the winners nine times out of the last 12 years, and even got last year's score exactly right.that's it for this tech update, and there's more at cnet.com. from our studios in new york, i'm bridget carey 3 3 who was that guy making faces behind hillary monday night? did you see him? we'll introduce you we'll him? did you see night? hillary monday faces behind guy making who was that 3
