If you’re a fan of NFL Films, then you know how close you’ll be to Santonio Holmes as he makes the game-winning catch on their highlights of Super Bowl XLIII. Pretty soon you’ll be able to catch them in full high-def so you can really indulge in the Pittsburgh Steelers’ victory over the Arizona Cardinals if you’re a Terrible Towel waver.
Amazon has the exclusive goods on the upcoming Blu-ray release, “NFL Super Bowl XLIII: Pittsburgh Steelers Champions,” that’s scheduled to arrive on March 3.
You can pre-order it now and save about a third of the regular cost—order for $23.99, from the list price of $34.99.
There aren’t too many details listed, but the description notes that you get a season chock full o’ highlights from Week One right through Ben Roethlisberger’s kneel-down on the last play of the Steelers’ 27-23 instant classic win over Arizona—all NFL Films style and their uncanny ability to capture sights and sounds from the sidelines.
Doesn’t sound like you get the whole Super Bowl broadcast from NBC in high-def among this package (probably being saved for a box set someday, like the NFL released a while back on DVD), but you do get the entire fourth quarter of Pittsburgh’s comeback win over Dallas in Week 14—sure to remind plenty of the Steelers-Cowboys 1970s rivalry—courtesy of Fox HD.
