Here's How Much Super Bowl Commercials Cost This Year

Getting a commercial on this year's Super Bowl broadcast will cost a lot.

Want to run a commercial on FOX during the Super Bowl this Sunday?

It'll cost you a lot.

According to a report by AdAge, a 30-second commercial during this Sunday's Super Bowl on FOX will cost you roughly $5 million.

FOX is also selling digital-only commercial spots this year, for a much lower (but still pricey) amount.

Ad spots in the digital stream can be purchased on a national or local basis. Digital ads are significantly less expensive, priced at roughly $700,000 for a 30-second national spot. The same 30-second national spot in the broadcast stream will cost you in the ballpark of $5 million. While $700,000 is still double the cost of a national 30-second spot on a hit show in prime time, companies unwilling or unable to pay the premiums for traditional Super Bowl spots may be willing to test it out in this price range.

This was considered by some to be the best Super Bowl commercial last year.
