No TV? No problem. Well, hopefully no problem. It’s complicated. Here are a couple sources you can use to watch the big game online.
On Your Computer
This is probably the easiest way to watch the game online, as CBS is the network that’s broadcasting the game on TV.
The major caveat: “CBSSports.com’s live streaming of the Super Bowl is available in the United States, its territories, Puerto Rico, and Bermuda,” says CBS. If you’re not in one of those areas, you’ll have to explore – ahem – other options.
On Your Smartphone or Tablet
If you’d like to watch the game on your smartphone, you’ll need to a) be a Verizon customer and b) use Verizon’s NFL Mobile app:
If you don’t have a compatible Verizon phone, CBS’s video streams are currently working on iPad and iPhone (I tested them and found them to be working as of 10am Friday) directly through the web browser.

CBS’s live streaming coverage of the game begins at 6pm Eastern on Sunday, February 3rd. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30.
