Not only did the FOX official stream, through the FOX Sports app, go off without an issue live TV streaming service also successfully streamed the game. DIRECTV STREAM, fuboTV, Hulu, Vidgo, YouTube TV, and more all streamed the game without issues.
The biggest complaint about streaming the super bowl was the delay which was as low as 24 seconds behind cable TV, according to Downdetector. Though if the delay is important to you, an antenna will show you the action before cable TV viewers will see it.
