You don’t just have to be home in front of your TV to watch the big game between the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots this Sunday. There are ways to watch it streaming free online, and on your mobile devices.
Super Bowl Live Stream Online
If you want to watch the entire 11-hour coverage of the Super Bowl including the pre-game, halftime, and post-game coverage, NBC is streaming it all for free. The coverage begins February 1st at 12pm ET, and end at 10pm ET that same evening.
You can watch it on your computer or tablet by going directly to the website (link below) or by downloading the free NBC Sports Extra app – links for the app on each platform are also below.
One caveat to this is you will only be available on your computer or tablets. NBC doesn’t have the rights to live-stream it on smartphones. The NFL has given that right exclusively to Verizon Wireless which you can watch through its NFL Mobile app on Android, Windows Phone, iPhone, and even BlackBerry.
Do note that the free version of the app will give you highlights and the score, but you’ll need to pay $5.00 for the premium subscription to watch the game live. But if you’re a Verizon customer and need to keep up with things while on the go, it will be worth downloading the app.
If you’re stuck at work this Sunday, traveling, or need to watch the Super Bowl somewhere else because your wife is watching the Lifetime network, you can take solace knowing you can watch it online for free.
