Super Bowl 51 Live Stream

It’s the biggest sporting even on the planet, and when the New England Patriots take on the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI on Sunday, Feb. 5 in Houston, over 100 millions people around the world will likely be tuning in. Cable cutters are used to relying on an antenna for their live sports, but this year’s Super Bowl will be easier than ever to stream.

Roku has announced it’s offering a free live stream Super Bowl LI through the platform’s Fox Sports Go channel, and will include the pregame show starting at 2 p.m. In addition to all the on field action between the Patriots and Falcons, Roku will also broadcast the Lady Gaga halftime show, plus a “Field Pass stream” with additional complementary, plus a “sights and sounds” of the stadium feature. Roku promises viewers will “feel like they’re on the field” for warmups thanks to the unprecedented broadcast techniques this year. It’s just another way you can watch live TV on Roku.

A free Super Bowl live stream will also be available to customers at, as well as the Fox Sports Go app for Android, iOS, and Windows (including smart TVs, Amazon Fire TV, and Google Chromecast). As far as streaming the Super Bowl on a mobile phone, Verizon has exclusive access this year.
When it comes to streaming, the Super Bowl is by far one of the biggest events annually. The CBS live stream of Super Bowl 50 in 2016 between the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos saw nearly 4 million unique viewers across mobile devices, smart TVs and computers.

The number of people streaming the Super Bowl each year is growing, which should come as no surprise. Not only are fans watching on more devices than even before, including cell phones and smart TVs, but networks are making it easier to legally stream the game across a variety of devices.
