How to Watch the Super Bowl Online (2021)

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

You don't have to miss out on watching the Super Bowl if you're on the go or don't have cable. It's easy to watch the NFL game online or live stream the event from your smartphone, computer, tablet, or compatible streaming device, like a Roku, Apple TV, or Fire TV.

Whether you're rooting for your team, waiting for the halftime, or just here for the commercials, you can get in on the game.

Wondering which channel the Super Bowl is on this year? 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. Check back here for the final word!

How to Live Stream Super Bowl LV (55)

There are several options for live streaming the Super Bowl.


CBS is broadcasting Super Bowl LV (55), so you can stream the game via CBS All Access on your TV or mobile device. You can also mirror the game from a device to your television.


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 the Super Bowl

Depending on which network has broadcasting rights, you might be able to stream the game from one of the subscription services listed below. Consider a free trial to test out a service and see if it's a good fit for you.


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.


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.

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:


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.


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.
