How to Live-Stream the Super Bowl on Any Device for Free
The Super Bowl is upon us again, but it’s going to be a little different this year. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the NFL said that there will only be 22,000 people attending the 55th Super Bowl event live at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa this year. But you can always tune in from home with or without a cable or satellite subscription. Here’s how to watch Super Bowl LV on TV, and what streaming services and devices you need to live-stream the game for free.
What Time Does the Super Bowl Start?
Super Bowl LV will air on CBS this year starting at 6:30 PM EST (3:30 PM PST) on Sunday, February 7. If you want to watch the opening national anthem, the coin toss, and other traditional festivities, you’ll need to start watching or streaming at 6:00 PM EST (3:00 PM PST).
For the most extensive pre-game coverage, you can go to CBS Sports HQ for free using any of your devices from now until the event.
How to Watch the Super Bowl on TV
To watch the Super Bowl on TV, you can simply tune in to CBS. You can access CBS on any TV with cable or satellite service. If can’t access CBS, you can always buy an over-the-air antenna and tune in to your local CBS channel to watch the Super Bowl live for free.
However, it is important to note that an antenna will only work if you are within range of a broadcast tower. You can enter your zip code in the FCC’s DTV Reception Maps to see how strong the CBS signal is in your area.
If you are unable to watch on TV, you may also live-stream the game using a streaming device or your phone, tablet, or computer.
How to Live-Stream the Super Bowl with a Streaming Device
You can live-stream the Super Bowl for free on any streaming device with the CBS Sports app. If you can’t download the CBS Sports app, you will need a paid subscription to the AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, Hulu + Live TV, YouTube TV, or CBS All Access streaming services.
You can download the CBS Sports app right from your home screen if you have a Roku, Fire TV, or Apple TV streaming device. To do this, click the search icon (usually in the top-left corner of your home screen) and then search for the app by name. If you can’t find it, try just searching for “CBS” and scrolling through the results. You can also press the voice search button on your remote and say, “CBS Sports.”
One of the advantages of using AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, Hulu + Live TV, YouTube TV, and CBS All Access is that they all offer DVR cloud storage. So, you can record the game, and watch it later. While these streaming services all require paid subscriptions, they also offer free trials. You can sign up for a free trial, watch the game, and cancel your subscription before it expires.
How to Live-Stream the Super Bowl for Free on a Phone, Tablet, or Computer
The easiest way to live-stream the Super Bowl with your smartphone or tablet for free is by downloading the CBS Sports app. If you have a computer, you can go to CBSSports.com. Then you can cast the game from your device to your TV or use AirPlay to mirror your device to your TV.
With the CBS Sports app, you can also set a reminder for Sunday at 6:00 PM EST (3:00 PM PST), so you don’t miss the big game. You can download the CBS Sports app for your iPhone or other iOS devices from the Apple App Store and for your Android devices from the Google Play Store.
