Well, it's that time of year again, sports fans (and fans of wild commercials and halftime shows). The Super Bowl is right around the corner, and we've got all the info you need if you're looking to stream the game this Sunday. As with a lot of major television events, there are quite a few options available to you if watching on regular old Fox isn't up your alley.
How To Stream Super Bowl LI Online
The contest between the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons happens this Sunday, February 5, beginning at 6:30 p.m. EST. The easiest way to watch the game, without tuning your TV in to Fox, is to head to FoxSportsGo.com or to download the Fox Sports Go app on your device. The app is available in the Apple App store, Google Play, the Windows Phone Store and the Windows Store. You can also download the app on an Amazon Kindle Fire and watch from there. As you can probably see from the list of online stores that offer the app, once you download the app, you can watch on Apple, Android, Amazon or Windows devices.
Normally, you'd have to log in with your cable or satellite provider credentials, but, because sometimes the world is a just and fair place, that authentication will be turned off for the game. Plus, if you're watching the game more for the commercials than the actual footballing, Fox will be offering up a similar mix of local and national ads on the stream.
How To Stream Super Bowl LI On Connected Devices
Luckily, thanks again to Fox Sports Go, you'll be able to stream Super Bowl LI to a wide variety of connected devices, as well. The supported devices are Apple TV, Roku, Android TV, Chromecast, Amazon Fire and Xbox One. Unfortunately, PlayStation owners who want to stream through their PS3 or PS4 devices will need to sign up for a free trial of PlayStation Vue using their PlayStation Network account, since the Fox Sports Go app isn't offered on those devices. New customers who are hoping to use Sling TV to stream the game will also have to, at least, sign up for a free trial, which lasts for seven days, in order to watch.
How To Stream Super Bowl LI On Your Phone
If you're going to be on the move during the Super Bowl and only have your phone on you, we've got some (potential) bad news for you. Only Verizon customers will be able to stream the game to their phones, via the NFL Mobile app. You can get the app from the Apple App store, Google Play or the Windows Store. The game is streaming for free, and you can watch it without using up all your data if you hitch yourself to a Wi-Fi hotspot.
How To Stream Super Bowl LI If You Don't Care About Watching It Live
If you're busy during the actual broadcast of the Super Bowl and just want to be able to see the whole game once you've got free time, then NFL Game Pass might be for you. You'll have access to the game starting at midnight, and you can sign up for a free seven day trial.
