How to Live Stream Super Bowl LV (55)
There are several options for live streaming the Super Bowl.
CBS is broadcasting Super Bowl LV (55), so you can stream the game via CBS All Access on your TV or mobile device. You can also mirror the game from a device to your television.
This used to be a perk only for Verizon customers. Stream local-market and primetime national games with the NFL Mobile App, as well as playoff games and the Super Bowl. This free streaming service is also available on Verizon’s Yahoo Sports App.
More Ways to Watch the Super Bowl
Depending on which network has broadcasting rights, you might be able to stream the game from one of the subscription services listed below. Consider a free trial to test out a service and see if it’s a good fit for you.
HULU+ LIVE TV
Hulu + Live TV began as an on-demand service, typically making TV episodes available to watch within a few days after their over-the-air broadcast, but the service now includes live-streaming options. Hulu with Live TV includes CBS, Fox, NBC, and ESPN. A 30-day free trial is offered.
AT&T TV NOW
AT&T TV Now, formerly called DirecTV Now, includes ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, and many more channels, and for $5 extra you can add the NFL Network. The service is available only in select markets, however.
YouTube TV is the paid subscription streaming TV service from YouTube. In available areas, YouTube TV offers live streaming, on-demand, and an online digital DVR recorder. YouTubeTV gives you access to CBS, Fox, NBC, and ESPN. There is a free trial offered.
Of course, you may also watch the game over the air with a good old-fashioned TV antenna. You do, however, need to be close to a broadcast tower.
Watch the Super Bowl Outside of the United States
Not in the U.S.? You can watch, too! While not all of the networks in non-U.S. countries who will broadcast the game have been announced, the game often airs on the same networks internationally more consistently than in the U.S. Here are the most likely options for our friends in Canada and the United Kingdom:
In Canada, the game will be available on the Dazn streaming service ($20 per month). Broadcast options may include CTV, CTV Two, TSN, and the CTV Go app.
In the United Kingdom, broadcast options may include BBC One, BBC Sport, BBC iPlayer, Sky Sports 1, Sky Sports NFL, and the Sky Go app.
NFL fans outside of the U.S. can also set up a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to access live streams through many of the options offered within the U.S. listed above.
How to watch Super Bowl 2021 online for free in the UK
The easiest option for those in the UK looking to watch the big game is BBC One. The company has streamed the big game for free for the past five years, and this time around is no different.
Since BBC One is broadcasting it, this means that you can also view it on the free BBC iPlayer app, which works on phones and tablets as well. Be sure to have all the apps installed and set up ahead of time so you don’t miss out on any of the game day action.
In addition to BBC One, Sky Sports will also be broadcasting the game for free. If you won’t be in the UK during the game, but prefer to watch local coverage of the event, remember to use a VPN to make that easier.
How to watch Super Bowl 2021 live stream in Canada for free
Much like last year, and the previous few years, CTV/TSN is going to be your best bet in Canada. It’s the official broadcaster for the Super Bowl in Canada, and you’ll be able to watch it on your TV or mobile device using the CTV Go app.
If you need another option in Canada, DAZN will be streaming the Super Bowl in Canada. It’s a subscription service, so you will have to pay the monthly rate, but DAZN offers a 30-day money back guarantee if you are not satisfied with the service.
