We’ve talked a lot about cutting the cord lately and one of the drawbacks is that sometimes you end up missing live sporting events. Even people who don’t follow football tune in for the Super Bowl. Some of just want to see the crazy commercials. Fortunately, there will be multiple options for cord cutters to catch the game this weekend.
CBS Sports will not only broadcast Super Bowl 50 this year on the CBS & CBS Sports channels, but they will also offer free live streaming of this pinnacle NFL game at CBSSports.com for free. Supported devices using the free CBS Sports app will include Apple TV, Chromecast, Roku, and XBox One. Viewers will get to watch the same commercial that appear on the broadcast, but will not get any pause or rewind options.
Verizon Wireless customers can also watch through Windows X and the NFL Mobile App.
Local viewers in the San Francisco, California area can download Road to 50 (http://www.sfbaysuperbowl.com/road-to-50-app#5rCQu4qgTVECHfH4.97) or the Levi’s Stadium app (http://www.levisstadium.com/stadium-info/stadium-app/) to watch.
CBS also live streamed the recent NFL playoffs including the Denver Broncos’ AFC Championship win over the New England Patriots. Super Bowl 50 will air on Sunday, February 7, 2016 at 6:30pm ET.
