How to watch the 2014 Super Bowl live on your iPhone or iPad

Super Bowl 48 is upon us and for the first time ever, FOX is offering ways for you to watch it live, no cable subscription required! So if you can't sit in front of the TV this Sunday with your friends and family, you can tune in on your iPhone or iPad and catch up with all the action when the Broncos and the Seahawks take the field. Here's how!

How to watch the Super Bowl live on your iPad

Anyone can stream the 2014 Super Bowl live if they have an iPad. All you have to do is download the FOX Sports GO app before game time. Then before the game officially starts, just load it up and you're good to go. Typically FOX Sports GO requires you to have a cable provider in order to use the app. These restrictions will be lifted temporarily for the Super Bowl from 12am Eastern time on Sunday, February 2nd until 3am Eastern on Monday, February 3rd.

How to watch the Super Bowl live on your iPhone (Verizon customers only)

Due to a licensing deal with Verizon, FOX can't live stream the Super Bowl to iPhones, or any smartphone for that matter, unless you're a Verizon customer that subscribers to NFL Mobile Premium. For those not already familiar with the service, it costs $5 a month and you'll need to download the NFL Mobile app to your iPhone via the following link:

  • NFL Mobile - Free (subscription required for live streaming) - Download Now (opens in new tab)

Other ways to stream the Super Bowl live

If you don't have an iPad and Verizon wireless isn't your wireless provider, that doesn't mean you can't live stream the 2014 Superbowl. If you've got a Mac or PC you can go to the following website in order to watch a free live stream of the game:

www.FOXSportsGO.com

Same deal as the FOX Sports GO app for iPad, content will be available for a limited time the day of the Super Bowl for anyone.

How will you be watching the 2014 Super Bowl?

Do you gather around the big screen with a group of family and friends -- or does everyone head down to the local sports bar? Let us know in the comments!

  • I'm certainly not streaming it over the internet! Tried it during playoffs and it was a terrible experience. Unwatchable in fact. You realize you don't need cable either? FOX is a network so it is "streamed" 24/7 over the good old airwaves. That's how I'll be watching it, in HD!! Sent from the iMore App
