If you’re one of the lucky few who will be watching the Seattle Seahawks battle the New England Patriots from the actual Super Bowl this Sunday, the NFL has a new app so you won’t miss any of the commercial action from the stands.

As Mashable reports, the NFL announced its first-ever Super Bowl app, the Super Bowl Stadium App, that will give attendees the opportunity to watch all the same fun ads that they’d catch on TV. In partnership with Verizon, it also gives ticketholders the chance to watch instant replays from four different camera angles, with zoom and pause options, too.

The app will be available for Windows, iOS and Android smartphones — and it only works within the confines of the University of Phoenix’s stadium in Glendale, Ariz.

It’s all part of the NFL’s effort to “incorporate technology into the fan experience and other parts of the game,” NFL’s chief information officer Michelle McKenna-Doyle told Mashable. The NFL considers it an extension of its year-round app, which offers live streaming, real-time scores, tweets, photos and stats. The League is also working on wiring up its stadiums. They introduced “Next Gen Stats” to 17 stadiums last year, and added the system to the University of Phoenix Stadium for the big event. Players for both teams will wear “trackers” during the game.

Here are a load of other tips from the Seahawks, too, on keeping connected to all the action, so you can get all your gear ready.
