This year is Super Bowl LI, the 51st in the National Football League’s championship series. It’s a massive event, appealing to a wide audience with a halftime show, sports, and elaborate commercials, getting watched by over 110 million users last year.
To expand their audience to the cordcutters, FOX will allow the competition to be streamed free online and on smart TVs without having to authenticate with a cable provider. The news did not make any mention of streaming beyond the United States, but it might be likely seeing as the NFL wants to expand to England and Mexico.
Fans around the country will be able to stream the biggest television event of the year at FOXSportsGo.com, using iOS, Android, Windows, and Amazon tablets or through connected devices, including Apple TV, Roku, Android TV, Chromecast, Amazon Fire and XBOX One.
The NFL has been experimenting with different ways to adapt to the streaming era, with some games appearing on Twitter and many games being played in other countries. They have also added streaming capabilities for Playstation Vue and CBS All-Access.
The FOX Sports Go app can be downloaded for free on Google Play, removing all technical barriers of watching. Will you be watching the game? Let us know in the comments below.
