How to Stream Super Bowl 50 for Free on Your Apple Devices

by Josh Centers

Super Bowl 50 (yes, 50 and not L, because the NFL has switched from Roman to Arabic numerals) will take place 7 February 2016 at 6:30 PM EST. If you want to watch the showdown between the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos, but don’t have traditional TV service, the good news is that CBS will be streaming the game for free [1] to viewers in the United States.

Here’s how to stream the game on any of your Apple devices:

If you’re outside of the United States on Super Bowl Sunday, your options depend on the country you’re in. The BBC and Sky both have broadcast rights to the game in the UK, so you should be able to watch it in their respective apps if you have the appropriate license and/or subscription: iPlayer for the BBC [6] and Sky Go [7]. Likewise, CTV owns the Super Bowl rights in Canada, so you should be able to watch the game on CTV Go [8] if you’re a subscriber. If you know of details for other countries, let us know in the comments and we’ll add them.

And if you only watch the Super Bowl for the commercials, you’ll be able to find them all on the YouTube AdBlitz [9] channel via whatever device you prefer for YouTube.
