NBC Super Bowl Ads to Cost $3 Million

The Wall Street Journal reports that the Super Bowl, which has always been a tough ticket, will cost advertisers $3 million just to get into the game -- for 30 seconds. NBC Universal plans to announce next week that $3 million will be the entry price for a commercial at the 2009 Super Bowl. While individual slots have sold at that level before, it's never been the starting point for negotiations for the dozens of 30-second ads sold for the game. It represents a price increase of more than 10%, roughly double the usual annual rise.
