Nope

"the SuperBowl resulted in a 15% dip in overall network traffic, suggesting that despite the proliferation of tablets and smartphones, the SuperBowl remains a traditional TV dominated affair."

Nope it proves it is hard to type or tap or use an electronic device when your hands are covered in popcorn oil, pizza gunk or chicken wings sauce.

It proves the game is a social event, and it is probably just likely that most people were likely watching it on limited devices and in groups.

It also establishes that it is not the sort of event you'd expect to find offered on something like Netflix.

Myself, I didn't watch it because I don't watch sports to begin with.
I saw the half time spectacle on YouTube though.

Hit the nail on the head.

People were busy watching the game on their old fashioned TV.

Along with drinking beer and talking sh!t with their buddies. It is a social engagement, not a solo event to be enjoyed on a screen smaller than 10".

Super Bowl parties - a tradition for over 40 yrs.
