Over the last few years the Super Bowl has been streamed for free online; however, if you watched the stream online you missed out on some of the best commercials—one of the major reasons many watch the Super Bowl.
This year Fox has rights to the Super Bowl and will make it available to all for free on the Fox Sports Go apps and website. Fox recently announced that not only will it be free but also it has worked with more than 170 Fox affiliates to bring local commercials to viewers through Fox Sports Go. Fox will use IP filtering to bring you the local feed of your Fox affiliate for the Super Bowl.
Last year CBS streamed the Super Bowl between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers. The live stream of the game brought in 3.96 million unique viewers across all devices. Fox is expecting to see a noticeable jump in viewership this year.
FoxSportsGo.com will stream Super Bowl LI (51) on apps for iOS, Android, Windows, and Amazon tablets, Roku, Apple TV, Android TV-powered devices, Fire TV, Fire Stick, Google Chromecast, and the Xbox One console. Verizon has the streaming rights for smartphones.
