The Atlanta Falcons are getting ready to square off with the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LI this Sunday. You’ve got the snacks, friends are coming over, but wait – there’s just one problem. It’s 2017, and (like most everyone under the age of 30), you don’t have cable. What can be done?
Cord-cutters, you’re in luck. There are more ways than ever to stream Super Bowl 51 on Sunday – including the commercials, Lady Gaga’s halftime show, and everything in between.
While usually locked behind a cable provider login, Fox will be suspending its paywall for Superbowl Sunday. You can watch the game for free on desktop, tablet, or streaming TV device – including Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, and Xbox. Download the Fox Sports Go app or visit FoxSportsGo.com on the web.
For Verizon Customers
The cell phone provider owns exclusive streaming rights on phones. If you’re looking to watch on a hand-held device that isn’t a tablet, you’ll need to be a Verizon customer. Current customers can log in to their accounts within the NFL Mobile app to watch the game on your mobile device.
For Pay-TV Subscribers: Super Bowl VR
If you are one of the few that still has a cable or satellite TV subscription, Fox will be streaming the game in 360-degree video. You can tune in using the Fox Sports VR app, and combine that with a VR headset or Google Cardboard for a fully immersive Super Bowl experience.
Just the Ads
As per usual, YouTube’s Adblitz will be your home to watch all of the ads, showcasing the best of what brands have to offer in 2017. Previews are up now, and ads will appear as the game progresses on Super Bowl Sunday.
Snickers will be debuting the first-ever live Super Bowl ad, shooting the whole $5 million 30-second western-themed spot in real time.
