The Superbowl. The number one sporting event in the United States of America. It’s also the only thing that I know of on TV, where the commercials are as hotly anticipated as the game itself. In this post, I will show you how to stream Superbowl 50 on your Android device.
This year CBS will be broadcasting the Superbowl live over-the-air and online streaming. This isn’t the first year that the event will be streamed online. In fact, last year more than 1.3 million viewers tuned to NBC online to watch the big game. In 2014, Fox had over 1.1 million streaming viewers. It’s clear that the precedent has been set and we’ll be seeing future Superbowls streamed online as well.
In order to stream the Superbowl on your Android TV, Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, or Android-based tablet, all you need to do is download the CBS Sports app from Google Play or Amazon App Store. If you are using an Android-based phone, you can only stream it via the NFL mobile app, but unfortunately, it’s restricted to Verizon customers.
If you would like to stream it to your phone and you use another mobile service, other than Verizon, you can try streaming via their website, wcbssports.com. You may need to use a browser like Dolphin browser that will allow you to change your browser’s user agent to mimic a desktop or tablet.
You could also download Kodi media center and stream it through an unofficial 3rd party plugin. More information about that can be found in my post about how to turn a Fire TV stick into the ultimate media center.
Will you be streaming or watching through traditional media outlets this year? Let us know in the comments below.
