There are several ways to watch Super Bowl 52 without cable TV this year. It’s important for cord cutters that want to watch the Patriots and Eagles duel it out to see who put the best NFL team on the field this season.
Multiple options are key for those cord cutters that invited over a bunch of people to watch the big game. What would be worse than having to deal with constant buffering in the middle of a Super Bowl party?
Watching Super Bowl 52 without Cable
Super Bowl 52 will kick off Sunday, February 4th, 2018 at 6:30 PM EST/ 3:30 PM PST. While it will air on NBC, there are several ways to watch available to cord cutters. Here are all your Super Bowl watching options. I recommend you have at least 2 at the ready in case you run into technical issues.
If you can receive NBC over the air then this is the most stable option to watch the Super Bowl. Broadcast HD TV over the air tends to have a far better picture than what you receive with pay TV. If the signal in your area is strong then this should be your primary option. You can check out my guide to choosing the best TV antenna to get yourself set up for Sunday’s big game.
Stream the Super Bowl with the NBC Sports App
Typical the NBC Sports app requires a Pay TV login to use. However, that requirement is being waved for the Super Bowl. Simply download the NBC Sports App to your streaming player or smart TV and you will be able to watch the game. The NBC Sports App is supported by Roku, AppleTV, Amazon Fire, Xbox, Samsung, and supported Smart TVs.
Live pre-game coverage will begin at noon. You can also watch the game using a browser through NBC Sports Super Bowl Live Stream. Both the online live stream and NBC Sports App will also air all the Super Bowl commercials you would see if you were watching broadcast NBC.
Stream the Super Bowl on NBC

Stream Super Bowl 52 on Mobile Devices
Verizon has exclusive NFL rights on mobile devices. However, they are now streaming Super Bowl 52 to your mobile device regardless of carrier. Simple download the Yahoo Sports app from iTunes app store on iOS or Google Play on Android and you can stream the Super Bowl to your Mobile device.
