Gear up, guys, the 2017 Super Bowl is coming this weekend and just like every year it is going to be the most-watched night of television. So, what are the options to watch if you don't have tickets and just want to sit at home and chill?
Fox Sports Go
First choice would be the Fox Sports Go website or the Fox Sports Go app where you can stream the Super Bowl LI live and it doesn't require a TV subscription to access it. Fox also will be turning off the authentication for the game, so users can pretty much navigate to the relevant page and start watching.
However, there is a little issue that you might want to know. Due to the league's restrictions, you won't be able to stream the Super Bowl via the Fox Sports Go app on your Android phone. But on the bright side, Android Tablets are exempted from this - that is if you have one.
The second choice will be AT&T's DirecTV service. With this, users will be able to stream the game to their phone in Atlanta, Austin, Charlotte, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Detroit, Gainesville, L.A., Minneapolis, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Francisco, Tampa and Washington D.C.
The bad news? Yeah, there is always a bad news when something seems too good to be true. Reportedly, it can only be streamed via Wi-Fi connection, so watching the game on the road could possibly not be an option for many.
Verizon Through NFL App
For Verizon subscribers, they are the lucky ones. With the NFL Mobile app on their phone, they can watch the game via Wi-Fi or mobile data.
For this part, there is a little trick that you need to know before watching the game on this platform. Well, if you don't have a subscription, you can sign-up for a free trial of the PlayStation Vue which is technically Sony's live TV streaming device.
Now here is the tricky part: just be sure to cancel the free trial subscription after the game is over. Shh...you didn't hear it from me.
This is one cool way of watching the 2017 Super Bowl. You can watch the game either with your Google Cardboard or with the Samsung Gear VR (whatever you have or prefer) via the Fox Sports VR app. To access the game, you might need a cable subscription or at least the log-in details.
For People Outside The U.S.
There are a number of apps and TV services available for people outside the U.S. For the viewers in Canada, they have CTV, in UK they can watch it either on BCC or Sky, Australia got Seven Network and Foxtel, while Canada has Sky.
