Super Bowl LIII is coming up quickly and if you can't be around a giant TV for the big game to watch it on CBS, you can still watch on your iPhone or iPad. Here's how!

In the U.S.

CBS All Access

This year, CBS will be broadcasting the Super Bowl across all its channels, plus it will be live streaming on CBS All Access so if you have a subscription to, you can keep an eye on the Super Bowl that way.

NFL app

Just download the NFL mobile app and you're in like flint. Free streaming of the Super Bowl for all. You just won't be able to AirPlay or cast it due to licensing rights.

Yahoo Sports

Yahoo Sports is also getting in on the free streaming action. You'll be able to stream the Super Bowl 100% free on your iPhone or iPad, but like the NFL app, you won't be able to AirPlay.

Outside the U.S.

If you're outside the U.S., you kind of get the short end of the stick with this one, since there aren't really any free ways to watch on iPhone and iPad without doing something illegal. And I could not condone that in good conscience.

A good VPN

If you use a VPN on a U.S. server, then you can download an American app (like CBS All Access) and use it as though you're in the states. You will, however, have to create an American App Store account. I recommend ExpressVPN or IPVanish.

In Europe: NFL Game Pass

This is the official way to watch the Super Bowl if you're in Europe. It's €19.99 just to watch the Super Bowl live. The app has awful reviews in the app store, but this is really your only legal option if you don't have a cable subscription.

In Canada: DAZN

"Da Zone" has exclusive streaming rights to the Super Bowl in Canada, so if you're looking for an online option, this is really it (legally speaking). It costs $20/month and has taken over from the NFL app as the Canadian source for NFL Game Pass. If you haven't been paying for it already, it's probably not really worth it to shell out $20 when the NFL season is about to come to an end, but if you really wanna see the Super Bowl and don't have a TV subscription, it's really your only legal option.

In Canada: CTV GO app

If you live in Canada and you have a TV subscription package that includes CTV, you can stream the Super Bowl on your iPhone or iPad via the CTV Go app. It's free (aside from your cable subscription).

That's pretty much it
