Or maybe you’re just there to eat wings and see this year’s batch of commercials. In the good old days (i.e., a couple of years ago) watching the Super Bowl just meant figuring out which of the three networks — NBC, Fox, or CBS — had the rights to air it this year and then figure out what channel number that was for your local affiliate.
Nowadays, though, things are more complicated. Between online streaming, over-the-air broadcasts, apps for set-top boxes, and internet based TV services for cord cutters, it can be hard to figure out how to watch the Super Bowl. So let’s break it down:
WHEN IS THE SUPER BOWL?
superbowl-livestream.com This year is Super Bowl LI, which will take place between the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30pm ET at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. If you’re more of a half-time show kind of person, Lady Gaga will be handling that.
OVER-THE-AIR / CABLE
Super Bowl Live Stream This is the classic method of watching the Super Bowl, and it’s probably the easiest. If you’ve got an over-the-air antenna hooked up, or pay for cable, then you’re pretty much all set. Just find your local Fox affiliate channel (in the New York area, that’s Channel 5) and enjoy the game! Other advantages to using “regular” TV is that it’s probably the closest to real time, meaning you won’t fall behind the endless stream of commentary on Twitter and Facebook.
WATCHING ON YOUR APPLE TV / CHROMECAST / ROKU / CONSOLE
Hate cable? Out of antenna range? Well, don’t worry. Fox is making this really easy this year. Just download the Fox Sports Go app on your platform of choice (here’s some helpful iOS, Android, Xbox, Roku, and Amazon links). Then you’ll be good to go! Ordinarily you’d need a cable login, but Fox is opening the gates to anyone for the Super Bowl. Plus, you should get all the usual commercials, so you won’t be missing out. The downside is that the stream tends to lag a bit behind the live broadcast.
WATCHING ON A COMPUTER
Super Bowl 2017 Live Internet streaming can be a bit hit-or-miss when it comes to live sports (or live events in general), but because the Super Bowl is so big, everything is far easier than for a standard broadcast. If you’re on a computer, just head on over to the Fox Sports Go website, and you should be good to go.
WATCHING ON A TABLET
See above. Download the Fox Sports Go app (again, here’s the iOS and Android links) or the NFL Mobile app (iOS / Android), and you’re good to go.
WATCHING ON A SMARTPHONE
If you’re on Wi-Fi, same rules as tablets apply. If you’re out and about though, then you’re flat out of luck — unless you’re a Verizon customer, since Verizon has an exclusivity deal on mobile NFL streaming.
That said, if you’re a Verizon customer, same hit up those same apps, and enjoy the game.
Super Bowl 2017 Live Stream As an important caveat, those above Fox Sports based options will tend to only work inside the United States. But if you’re an expat Pats follower or a far-flung Falcons fan, you’ve still got some options. In England, the Super Bowl will be airing on BBC 1 and Sky Sports 1, with online streams available on the BBC iPlayer (iOS / Android), BBC Sport (iOS / Android), and Sky Go (iOS / Android) apps and websites — just remember that the game won’t start until 11:30 PM in London. Our neighbors to the north won’t be left out either — Canada will be offering the big game on CTV, CTV Two, and TSN, and online through the CTV GO app (iOS/ Android). Plus, Canadians will finally get to see the same ads as America for the first time this year. For other countries, check this full list of channel rights from totalSPORTEK. superbowl-livestream.com
While the game has obviously been sold out for a while, if you’re somehow able to get to Houston in the next couple hours, tickets are available on the secondary market starting at over $2500 dollars apiece. The advantages include being even closer to real time than the over-the-air broadcast and hearing Lady Gaga live. On the other hand, in addition to transportation and ticket costs, you’ll be missing out on all the commercials.
Super Bowl 2017: Who is Luke Bryan, this year’s national anthem singer?
Bryan started his career writing music for Travis Tritt and Billy Currington (two other country singers, for those of you unfamiliar with the genre) before releasing his own music. Bryan is one of the founding fathers of what we like to call Bro Country. It’s a subset of modern country music easily identified by its themes of drinking beer with the boys down by the lake, chasing women wearing ripped up jeans, and driving trucks jacked up high to compensate for something else. (Only kidding about that last part, kind of.)
It crosses over into pop and a little bit of hip-hop, when certain artists, including Bryan, try out a little bit of tricky fast-talk-singing.
He encapsulates Bro Country perfectly in his 2016 hit, “Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day” — also the name of his upcoming tour. The chorus goes as follows:
A huntin’, fishin’, and lovin’ every day/That’s the prayer that a country boy prays/Thank God He made me this way/Huntin’ and fishin’ and lovin’ every day/Early in the morning and late in the evening/I’m getting red dirt rich and Flint River* pay/Huntin’ and fishin’ and lovin’ every day
*He’s talking about the one in Georgia, not its better–known, controversial Michigan counterpart.
Super Bowl 2017 And that’s exactly what Luke Bryan does best. Non-controversy. What was probably his biggest scandal took place in 2015, when he made disparaging comments about older country music stars and their drug use, thus making himself, a red-blooded, clean-cut, beer drinker, more wholesome by comparison.
There was also that one little time in 2012 when he sang the national anthem in the MLB All-Star Game, but had to read the words off his hand. He profusely apologized for that, too. I’m certain he’s learned his lesson and that won’t happen this time around. He’s had almost five years to learn the words, after all.
Aside from his little lyrical mishap, Bryan is honestly a decent choice for national anthem singer. Does he have a particularly melodic voice? No. Is he diverse in any way? Not at all. Does he have an infectious smile? Absolutely. Does he have experience performing in front of stadium crowds? Yes, he’s done NFL halftime shows before. Is he a fan favorite? He’s got the awards to prove it.
There are better singers out there. There are more politically active singers out there. But you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone more bland than Bryan. And that’s just what the NFL is looking for at this point in time. Someone who’s not going to make a fuss, and someone who hopefully this time around won’t forget the words.
