Here’s How to Stream the 2020 Super Bowl for Free

February 2, 2020 Tech By

The Super Bowl is this Sunday — February 2, and it starts at 6:30 pm EST — and there are a number of ways you can to watch it. If you still have a cable box and pay for a subscription, then you can just turn on your TV to watch the game. But how old fashioned of you! For those of you who have cut the cord, there are basically three ways to stream the game, one of which is free.

Stream with cable: If you have cable, but want to stream, there’s the Fox Sports app. The catch is that you’ll need a subscription to actually watch, whether it is yours or….not. The Fox Sports app is available on any iOS or Android device, as well as Apple TV, Android TVs, Samsung TVs, TVs and streaming sticks that run Roku or Amazon Fire TV, as well as Xbox One.

Stream with a subscription service: if you have a subscription to live TV streaming service — such as YouTube TV, FuboTV, Sling TV or Hulu with Live TV — you’ll be able to watch the game. Just make sure to turn on Fox.

Stream for free: You can go to the Fox Sports website and watch the Super Bowl for free. The catch is that you’ll only be able to do this from a computer or smartphone, not your streaming device. Although you could easily AirPlay or cast the game from your computer or smartphone to your TV. And, if Fox Sports takes measures to try and block that functionality in their proprietary player, Chromecast users have an end around: just stream the whole dang Chrome tab.
