How to Watch the Super Bowl Online

You don't need cable to watch the biggest game of the year

Each year, millions of football fans celebrate the Super Bowl, the National Football League's annual championship game. On what has become a de facto national holiday, family and friends gather around the television to cheer on their favorite team or just enjoy the advertisements.

If you're on the go or don't have cable, you don't have to miss out. It's easy to watch the Super Bowl online or live stream the event from your smartphone, computer, tablet, or even a compatible streaming device.

The NFL selects a network broadcaster for the Super Bowl on a year-by-year basis, so the primary broadcast network is often different each year.

How to Live Stream Super Bowl LIV (54)

There are several options for live streaming the Super Bowl.

Fox

Fox Sports is broadcasting Super Bowl LIV (54), so stream the game via the Fox Sports mobile app for iOS or Android devices (you’ll need to link to your TV provider). Watch the game on Fox’s website if you’re on a laptop or want to watch on your computer. Another option is to mirror the game from a device to your television.

NFL App

This used to be a perk only for Verizon customers. Stream local-market and primetime national games with the NFL Mobile App, as well as playoff games and the Super Bowl. This free streaming service is also available on Verizon's Yahoo Sports App.

More Ways to Watch Super Bowl LIV (54)

Since Fox has Super bowl broadcasting rights, live stream Fox from subscription services you may or may not already have. Consider a free trial to test out a service and see if it's a good fit for you.

HULU+ LIVE TV

Hulu + Live TV began as an on-demand service, typically making TV episodes available to watch within a few days after their over-the-air broadcast, but the service now includes live-streaming options. Hulu with Live TV includes CBS, Fox, NBC, and ESPN. A 30-day free trial is offered.

PLAYSTATION VUE

PlayStation Vue is available in select markets and provides both streams and on-demand viewing options. A PlayStation console is not required because Vue works with several streaming devices. Watch ESPN, NBC, Fox, Disney, and other essential networks.

SLING TV

Sling TV offers services for on-demand and live-stream television programming. Sling TV is available only in select markets, however. A free trial is available.

AT&T TV NOW

AT&T TV Now, formerly called DirecTV Now, includes ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, and many more channels, and for $5 extra you can add the NFL Network. The service is available only in select markets, however.

FUBO TV

FuboTV, which also offers a free trial, includes CBS, Fox, NBC, and the NFL Network, but does not come with ESPN.

YOUTUBE TV

TV Antenna

Of course, you may also watch the game over the air with a good old-fashioned TV antenna. You do, however, need to be close to a broadcast tower.

Watch the Super Bowl Outside of the United States

Not in the U.S.? You can watch, too! While not all of the networks in non-U.S. countries who will broadcast the game have been announced, the game often airs on the same networks internationally more consistently than in the U.S. Here are the most likely options for our friends in Canada and the United Kingdom:

Canada

In Canada, the game will be available on the Dazn streaming service ($20 per month). Broadcast options may include CTV, CTV Two, TSN, and the CTV Go app.

United Kingdom

In the United Kingdom, broadcast options may include BBC One, BBC Sport, BBC iPlayer, Sky Sports 1, Sky Sports NFL, and the Sky Go app.

VPN

NFL fans outside of the U.S. can also set up a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to access live streams through many of the options offered within the U.S. listed above.

The website TotalSPORTEK often posts a full list of countries and channels planning to air the Super Bowl about a week before game day.
