* The 2018 Super Bowl is Sunday, February 4
* The New England Patriots are favored over the Philadelphia Eagles
* Stream the big game online or directly to your TV without cable
It all comes down to this: after a season of unpredictable swings and shifts (what happened Packers?!) the 2018 NFL season reaches its finale Sunday with the New England Patriots taking on the Philadelphia Eagles at Super Bowl LII.
Kickoff is 6:30pm EST / 3:30pm PST from Minneapolis, and if you’re still looking for tickets to catch the game live in person, we’ve spotted decent seats still available through Vivid Seats and SeatGeek.com.
For everyone else, settle in with some good food and drinks and watch the Super Bowl from the comforts of home. If you have cable, the game airs live on NBC this year. For everyone else, here’s where to catch the action.
1. Yahoo Sports App
After Verizon’s huge multi-billion deal with the NFL, the telecommunications giant is letting users stream the Super Bowl for free on the Yahoo Sports app (Verizon had previously acquired Yahoo in June). The good news: you don’t have to be a Verizon subscriber to watch the game. The bad news: you won’t be able to watch it on your computer, connected TV or tablet, and you won’t be able to cast it from your phone to a separate screen or monitor either.
2. Sling TV
Sling TV’s “Sling Blue” package includes NBC, and is a great cord cutter option for streaming the Super Bowl. Sling TV’s offering a free 7-day trial that’ll let you stream NBC and the Super Bowl from your phone, tablet or straight to your screen. Just make sure to time your free trial for February 4 so you don’t miss out.
3. HDTV Antenna
For those who still own a TV, buying an antenna is an easy way to get the game because it only requires purchasing the device (no monthly dues), and NBC is readily available on most basic set-ups. We like this one from Bilmark, because it has a 50-mile range, an ultra-thin design, and comes in around $20.
Even if you’re not a football fan, there will be plenty of intrigue to keep you tuned into the game. Pop singer, Pink, is singing the national anthem, while Justin Timberlake is back for the Super Bowl Halftime Show, more than a decade after the infamous wardrobe malfunction with Janet Jackson in 2004.
