Don’t Have Cable or an Antenna? You Can Still Watch the Patriots in Super Bowl LI Free
If you're a cord cutter who has ditched cable TV, you know the challenges of trying to watch live sports. With the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LI, you might think you're out of luck to watch the game live from home. Oh no my friend. You can watch the Super Bowl on your TV without cable or an antenna very easily, and for free.
Super Bowl LI is being carried by Fox this year. If you're able to get Fox 23 over the air with an antenna, you're all set. But for many people, an indoor antenna won't do the trick. Luckily, Fox Sports Go will allow you to stream the game live.
The Fox Sports Go app normally requires you to login with the account for your cable provider. However, for the Super Bowl only, Fox is not requiring a login. All you need to watch is the app which is widely available.
So how do you get the game on your TV? The easiest way is if you have an Apple TV, Roku, Google Chromecast, Android TV, XBOX or Fire TV device. Just search for Fox Sports Go in apps or channels, install, and you're good to go. The Super Bowl will be live on your TV and will even show the same commercials you'd see on the broadcast, so you won't miss the Super Bowl ads that everyone will be talking about around the watercooler on Monday.
If you don't have any devices that plug directly into your TV, you can watch it on your computer at foxsportsgo.com. If your computer has an HDMI out port, you can connect it to your TV with an HDMI cable and watch the game on the big screen.
If none of these options work for your TV, your last resort to watch the Super Bowl at home is on a tablet or phone by downloading the Fox Sports Go app on iTunes or Google Play. You'll all have to huddle close, but at least you won't miss the Patriots win their fifth championship ring. (Fingers crossed)
