The NFL playoffs are still happening, that means the teams headed to this year’s Super Bowl haven’t been announced. Your best bet is going to be the Fox Sports GO website or Fox Sports GO app Fox is streaming Super Bowl LI live and you won’t need a TV subscription to view it: Fox is turning off authentication for the game, so you can just navigate to the relevant page and start watching.
Based on my attempts to watch football on other devices, I can say with at least some authority that the free Super Bowl stream won’t be available on tablets (even though they use the same Android or iOS apps), Super Bowl 52 live stream and you won’t be able to stream the game to a larger screen using Chromecast, AirPlay, or other screen mirroring tools via the NFL or Yahoo apps.
Besides inherent technological delays, for large-scale events such as the Super Bowl a few extra seconds of delay are built into the broadcast to avoid embarrassing issues such as Janet Jackson’s famous wardrobe malfunction during Super Bowl XXXVIII’s halftime show in February 2004.
No matter how much broadband you pay for, you’re ultimately going to end up sharing capacity with your neighbors, whether you like it or not — that’s why you may often see speeds drop in the evening, when more of you are likely to be streaming Netflix or YouTube So if you live around a lot of other people who are trying to stream stuff on Sunday, you may have a harder time watching the game.
Of course, Tech Editor David pointed out that we routinely see good quality HD antennas that cost less than $20, like this one from ViewTV with a 50 mile range for $19.99. I know, shame on me for not investing in something better, but I really just don’t watch live TV often enough for it to inspire me to do something about it. So hooray for streaming options!
