Super Bowl 50

Wondering how to watch tomorrow’s Super Bowl 50 on your iPhone, iPad or Mac? Just like previous years, you really have limited options if you want to watch the Super Bowl anywhere else but your TV, but things have gotten significantly easier over here.

Sadly, if you are among the few brave cord cutters out there and have managed to find ways to watch live streams of all other major sporting events, here is some bad news for you: only Verizon subscribers can live stream Super Bowl on their iPhone. However, you can watch the live stream just fine on your iPad or Mac without a hitch.


On the go and want to watch the live stream of the Super Bowl on your iPhone? Well, until and unless you are a Verizon subscriber, you cannot watch the live stream on your iPhone. If you are a subscriber of the Big Red, then the good news is that you only need to install the NFL mobile app on your iPhone.

Thankfully, with CBS getting the rights to stream Super Bowl this year, it is now significantly easier to watch the Super Bowl on your iPad this year. Simply download the free CBS Sports app from the iOS App Store and you are good to go.

CBS will be live streaming the game over at their website that you can watch on your Mac in Chrome, Safari or any other browser of your choice.

If you live outside of the United States though, things are going are significantly tougher for you. You need to be a subscriber of N.F.L. Gamepass that costs $99/year to watch the live stream on your device.

Just a reminder, Super Bowl 50 is scheduled to start at 6:30 PM ET on Sunday, February 7.
