How Cord-Cutters Can Watch the Super Bowl at Home
If you’re one of the millions of Americans who have ditched cable, you might be scrambling for ways to watch the Super Bowl from the comfort of your own home. Don’t worry: There are several options for scoring your football fix, according to Popular Science.
If you’ve got a smartphone or a tablet, you’ve got football. Apps like Verizon’s go90, Yahoo Sports, and the NFL’s official app will stream the game in real time, and with Google ChromeCast, you can watch the big game on a big screen. You may run into a few technical glitches, though: Livestreams can be touch-and-go, and you might see different commercials than your cable-subscribing friends. Streaming services like Hulu and YouTube include local network programming in some regions, and these programs might offer affiliate coverage of the game.
If none of these options works, but you do own a TV, try rigging up a digital over-the-air antenna on your system to get local NBC coverage.
Finally, if you're tuning in to the game simply for the memes, tweets, parodies, and think pieces, just stay on social media for a play-by-play of the highlights you’re missing onscreen.
