6 Awesome Ways to Watch the Super Bowl Live
The Super Bowl is the biggest event in American football; several people will crowd around their TVs watching the big game. But wait a minute, it’s 2017! We have phones, tablets, and laptops that can pick up the live stream.
Or you can do it the good old fashioned way: go to your favorite dive bar, eat wings and chug some beers.
Will you be away from a TV for a while during the Super Bowl?
Or do you just want to spice up the viewing for your favorite sports event? Or maybe you live in another country, and it’s easier to watch the game on your phone. And don’t forget those who live in or are traveling to Minneapolis.
There are numerous ways you can watch the Super Bowl in 2018. Read about these 6 unique ways you can watch the Super Bowl live next year.
1. Attend a Major Superbowl Party in Minneapolis
Super Bowl LII is in Minneapolis, and you know the whole city will be slammed.
People are visiting from all over the country and even all over the world. Scoring a ticket will be hard — and expensive.
Want to avoid hefty ticket prices or waiting lists? If you live in or will be in Minneapolis during the Super Bowl, try to hit up one of the rad parties happening in the area.
Look into events such the Rolling Stone Party, Playboy Party, Maxim Party, and DirecTV Party.
Keep in mind that some of the biggest parties featuring major celebrities are either sold out or are expensive.
2. On the NFL Website
You can easily watch the Super Bowl by purchasing NFL Game Pass. Regardless of the device you own, you can watch the game through NFL’s website. For about $9, you can watch the pregame and the game.
This purchase will last you until the end of February. In addition to the game, you’ll have access to other NFL games. You have the option of only hearing the audio broadcast and access to the official Super Bowl app.
You can either purchase this as a Super Bowl-only purchase, or you can subscribe for the whole season. A season subscription is $75, you receive a free trial and the option to cancel during your trial.
This option is especially convenient for those who aren’t in America and have trouble accessing American cable services.
3. Watch the Game at a Minneapolis Bar
Want to experience the Super Bowl hoop-la without going to the game or an expensive Super Bowl live party? And you don’t want to be at your house? Go to a local bar in Minneapolis.
Minneapolis is known for their exciting nightlife and several incredible bars and restaurants. They have catered their local bars to Super Bowl viewings. This includes longer bar and restaurant hours.
Some bar recommendations include Cowboy Jack’s Downtown Minneapolis, Matt’s Bar, Psycho Suzi’s Motor Lounge, Prohibition, and Up-Down Minneapolis.
Not in Minneapolis? There are several places in other major American cities that have a great Super Bowl atmosphere.
4. Stream Super Bowl 2018 on Any Device
Do you want to watch the big game, but are too stubborn to get cable?
Did you look into NFL Game Pass, but don’t feel like subscribing? Good news: you can stream the game on several services.
Super Bowl 2018 is being streamed by NBC. And fortunately, there are several non-cable streaming options for NBC.
Here are some examples:
- Sling Television
- DirecTV Now
- Fubo TV
- PlayStation Vue
- Apple TV
- Xbox One
- Amazon Fire
You can also get the NBC app and connect it to your Roku Box and Google Play accounts.
You’re probably thinking, without cable will I still see the commercials? Since commercials sell a lot — and are favorites for the fans — there’s a good chance you’ll watch the commercials with streaming services.
5. Facebook Live Stream
There are multiple Super Bowl live stream sources, and most of them are on Facebook. Do a search of Super Bowl live stream and find the most reliable streams with the best quality.
However, be mindful these streams don’t come from the legitimate NFL or NBC sources. These are mainly social media accounts and bloggers who gain access to the live streams or are filming it themselves.
Some are more reliable than others — look for accounts that have streamed the Super Bowl previous years and look back at that footage to see if the quality of their stream of Super Bowl 2018 is good.
If you want to stream the Super Bowl for free, have a backup plan. If Facebook becomes unreliable, watch the Super Bowl at a friend’s house or use one of your already-purchased streaming services.
6. Host Your Own Party — With a Twist
Not everyone is privy to traveling to Minneapolis for the Super Bowl.
This reasonably inexpensive tourist town is expected to raise $1,000 per Airbnb room, hotels are practically sold out, the streets will be flooded, and the whole city will be loud.
For the non-diehard football fans, it’s better to just host your own Super Bowl party.
But are you not cool with a stereotypical ‘buffalo wings and beers’ Super Bowl party? Create your own fun Super Bowl party.
Have fun drinking games designing drink cups like footballs. Engage in sports-related activities such as playing football video games. Create your own decorations like a football garland and football field turf placemats.
There are fun accessories you can buy, such as helmet drink stirrers and various football-themed dishes.
Tailgate by making your own pizza and wings. Serve hors d’oeuvres shaped as footballs.
You can easily host a Super Bowl party that’s as entertaining as going to the game itself.
Watch the Super Bowl Live
Millions of people will tune in to Super Bowl 2018. The Super Bowl is the perfect opportunity to take some time off with family and friends or take a trip out to Minneapolis.
Just remember, there are more options to stream Super Bowl 2018 live than there ever was.
