How to Watch Super Bowl 50 Online for Free

You won't need cable to watch the big game this year

Sports fans have the hardest time when it comes to cutting the cord. League packages are expensive, while local teams’ games are often only on cable.

Luckily, football fans can watch Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos take on Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50 on February 7 for free online.

CBS, which is hosting the big game, is offering a Super Bowl 50 livestream at CBSSports.com. Click this link to watch the game on a desktop, laptop or tablet computer.

If you own a Roku, Apple TV, or Xbox One, Super Bowl 50 will also be available on the CBS Sports Channel app.

You can also stream the game on smartphones, but only if you’re a Verizon subscriber with the NFL Mobile App.

There’s another way to get Super Bowl 50 without paying, too. CBS is free with an antenna if you live close enough to get television that way — check this site to find out.

Super Bowl 50 (the NFL ditched the Roman numeral for one year only) will kick off at 6:30 p.m. ET on Sunday. The game is being played at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, home to the San Francisco 49ers.
