So you’re searching for a place to stream Super Bowl XXVIII legally and free, yes? This year the rights go to Fox Sports, and the group will be so kind as to stream the event in its entirety through both their website for all computers and their app for Apple products on iOS. This includes all the commercials you can handle and the halftime show to boot!
There are a couple of caveats, unfortunately, in the iOS app at least. Have a peek at the FOX Sports GO app homepage and you’ll find the obviousness of the truth: “Best of all, it’s free through participating TV providers.” These include AT&T U-verse TV, Midcontinent Communications, Optimum, Sudden Link, Wow!, Comcast, Cablevision Systems, and Xfinity, amongst others.
That same link will bring you in to stream the big game on game day, but you’ll also need to have already signed in with your own cable provider. If you’re the sort of person that does not subscribe to cable, you may well still be out of luck.
In other words, you’re really going to need to be a TV user in the first place, which is a major bummer for those internet-tv-only types like many of SlashGear’s readers. For you, we’ll still be searching for those alternate sources. Please feel free to sound off in comments or through our Tips portal with any action you’ve discovered yourself.
