It’s Super Bowl Sunday and you may be scrambling to figure out how you are going to watch the big game tonight. If you have an iPad or a Mac, you have access to a live stream of the game and both its pre-game and post-game programming. The streaming options for iPhone owners are limited, with only one app providing live content to users who are on Verizon Wireless.
iPhone owners have one and only one option for watching the Super Bowl on their smartphone. Due to licensing agreements, the NFL Mobile app is the only app authorized to provide a live stream of the game to the iPhone. The app is available only to Verizon Wireless customers and requires a subscription. If you are in Canada, you can use the Bell TV app, which is available to Bell subscribers and requires a subscription fee. UK watchers can download the TVCatchup Live app.
iPad owners in the US can fire up the Fox Sports Go app to watch the Super Bowl on their iPad. The stream is available to all iPad owners, regardless of cable provider or wireless provider. Once again, licensing agreements limit the stream to only the iPad version of the Fox Sports Go app.
Mac users can point their favorite web browser to the Fox Sports Go website, where coverage of the Super Bowl starts at noon time. Pre-game as well as post-game coverage will be available live to all desktop users. Folks in the UK can watch on Channel 4 website, which will have a live stream: watchlive.channel4.com.
