Super Bowl LIV is coming up quickly and if you can't be around a giant TV for the big game to watch it on FOX, you can still watch on your iPhone or iPad. Here's how!
In the U.S.
FOX Sports app
This year, FOX will be broadcasting the Super Bowl across all its channels, plus it will be live streaming on the FOX Sports app for free. You do need to make an account, but there is no subscription fee.
Just download the NFL mobile app and you're in like Flynn. Free streaming of the Super Bowl for all. You just won't be able to AirPlay or cast it due to licensing rights.
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
Using a VPN is an easy way to get access to a Super Bowl Live Stream. Something like ExpressVPN allows you to pick a country to connect to virtually. Once connected, you can gain access to the local feeds, so you'd be able to connect to a U.S. server and find a Fox affiliate to watch the big game on.
In Europe: NFL Game Pass International
This is the official way to watch the Super Bowl if you're in Europe; however, it's €10.99 just to watch the Super Bowl live.
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 esseientially over, 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 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 app. It's free (aside from your cable subscription).
That's pretty much it
If any other ways to watch on your iPhone or iPad pop up between now and the Super Bowl, we'll let you know!
