Sling TV is another way to watch a Super Bowl live stream between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons. There are a couple different starting packages on Sling TV, but the Blue package will be the one you want if you want to watch the NFL online.

You can also watch a Super Bowl stream on Sony’s streaming service, PlayStation Vue. There are around 50 channels featured in the starting package for $29.99 per month. But in the areas you can get a FOX Super Bowl stream, the starting cost will be $39.99 per month. These areas also usually let you stream CBS, ABC, and NBC as well. That’s on top of the other 50 or so channels in the traditional package.

The only negative on PlayStation Vue (full review here) is you might run into a blackout when trying to stream from your phone. It’s tough to predict but could be a deal breaker for some.


FOX Will be Offering a Super Bowl 51 Live Stream on its Site

FOX recently announced it’ll be offering an option to stream Super Bowl free. You just head over to the FOX website and can stream the game for no cost. The real downer on this is the commercials featured aren’t the actual Super Bowl commercials we all know and love. Might not be a big deal to some, but others would hate to feel left out considering there are other great options for a free Super Bowl live stream.
