- NFL Game Pass (available to watch online after midnight)
Turn on one of these live streams to watch the broadcast in real-time.
FOX and Fox Sports Go
If you want to watch the game on your TV, the only official way is through FOX, so you obviously must be a cable subscriber. You can however watch the same live coverage online for free on your phone, tablet, or computer at FOXSports.com or through the Fox Sports Go app. Again, for all these options, you'll need a TV provider login.
Verizon customers can access the game via the NFL Mobile app with a verified login.
NFL Game Pass
NFL Game Pass subscribers can replay the game starting at midnight with a verified login.
It's not ideal, but you can also access a free radio broadcast. NFL Game Pass, Fox, Westwood One, SiriusXM, TuneIn, and Entravision will all cover the game live. Nfl.com will also offer foreign language broadcasts.
Can you watch Super Bowl LI in VR?
Fox Sports and LiveLike announced that they will stream in near-real-time highlights of the Big Game via the Fox Sports VR app for Google Cardboard (Android and iOS) and Gear VR. You will basically enter a “virtual suite”, where you can watch about 20 clips on a big-screen TV or via direct wide-angle video. If you want 360-degree video, you’ll have to watch it on your phone without a headset.
Is that it?
Yep. If none of those options suit you, because you're a cord-cutter or whatever, there are a few workarounds you can find online.
