All you cord-cutters who are hoping to have friends over for the Super Bowl on Sunday need not worry: Super Bowl LI will be incredibly easy to stream without a cable subscription this year.
The game will stream live on foxsportsgo.com and all the related FOX Sports GO apps this year, the network announced earlier this month. That means whether you’re using a Apple TV, Roku, Android TV, Chromecast, Amazon Fire, Xbox One, or even your trusty laptop, you should be good to go so long as your up to date on, well, updates. Go here the day of the game to watch from a computer.
Better yet, you don’t even have to borrow your mom and dad’s cable subscription to get the stream, as the network isn’t requiring people to use their pay TV credentials to watch the game, the network said.
“As part of the buildup to this year’s Super Bowl, we’re committed to creating the best possible experience for fans by dramatically expanding the ways and places in which they can watch the game,” Eric Shanks, the FOX Sports president, COO and executive producer, said in a statement.
In the past, some of these streams haven’t shown what a lot of viewers actually want to see: the commercials. But this year, that won’t be the case. The live stream is going to show all the national ads, too, so you’ll get to see whatever this year’s version of the puppy monkey baby will be.
The game starts at 6:30 p.m. ET on Sunday by the way.
