How to watch Super Bowl 2023 on your computer

The Super Bowl 2023 and the fight for the Lombardi Trophy is just around the corner. Of course, most people want to know how to watch the Super Bowl on the biggest screen possible. But what if you’re away from home or don’t have access to cable – how are you going to catch the big duel, you ask? Well, we’ve got your back.

This guide (as well as this one) will help you figure out the best way to stream the game (or Rihanna’s halftime show or commercials — we’re not judging) on ​​your PC, laptop, or any mobile device.

How to watch Super Bowl LVII in the US

This year’s Super Bowl kick-off will take place on February 12 at 6:30 p.m. ET at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona and the game will be broadcast in 4K ultra-high definition. In the past, watching the Super Bowl on your PC required some serious hoop jumping to make it happen. But thanks to all the live streaming platforms available that work cross-platform, these days watching the Super Bowl on your PC or laptop is as easy as it is on your TV.

To start, you can stream it directly from any of the cable channel websites. You can stream direct from the Fox website (make sure you have your cable credentials ready) as Fox is the official broadcaster of the event. NBC and CBS will also stream directly from their websites (NBCSports.com and CBSSport.com).

Your next option is one of the streaming platforms including Hulu+ Live TV, Sling TV, YouTube TV, Fubo TV, and DirecTV Stream. These subscription services offer live stream programming where you can access the game (subject to broadcast rights) on channels such as CBS, Fox, NBC, ESPN, etc. Free trial versions are available if you want to benefit from them too. Some, like DirecTV, charge additional fees to access the NFL network.

Finally, you can stream directly from your cable provider. Chances are your major cable provider, like Cox or Comcast, makes Fox (or a Fox subsidiary) and NBC available for streaming on their live streaming website. Again, make sure you have your account credentials handy to access the service.

How to watch Super Bowl LVII outside of the US

If you’re not in the US, there are two ways to watch. Some international broadcasters are broadcasting the game – for example, providers in the UK (BBC Sport, Sky Sport NFL), Australia (Seven Network) and Canada (Dazn, CTV) broadcast live NFL games (and the Super Bowl).

Alternatively, if you’d rather watch your favorite local channel or are in a location where it’s difficult to get a working stream through regular channels, you should consider using a VPN service. Just like the streaming subscription services listed above, there are subscription-based and free VPNs. With that in mind, you’re probably looking for something that’s easy and free to set up. Of course, make sure you use a VPN that offers strong online privacy and good data speeds.

For some of the fastest and most stable speeds, opt for NordVPN or ExpressVPN, which are paid services. Another favorite is ProtonVPN, which is free and has no data limit.
