It's time for Super Bowl 50! Starting Sunday, February 8th at 6:30pm EST (11:30pm GMT), the Denver Broncos and the withered husk of Peyton Manning take on Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers, who are bidding to be one of the few teams to go 18-1 in NFL history, as well as to make sandals with socks officially acceptable. There's big stakes on the line. If you can't watch the game through CBS on your TV for whatever reason, well, here's how to do so on your iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV.
CBS Sports, Free If you're in the US and have an iPad or an Apple TV, you can use the official CBS Sports app to stream the game. If you have a Chromecast, the app supports that as well, so you can watch it on a spare TV, or however you want to do it. While the game will be over the air, maybe you don't get great reception or are against antennae for whatever reason. This should work without a cable subscription, too.
NFL, Free If you want to stream on your iPhone, you'll once again need to have Verizon to watch because the NFL cares about one thing: money. And Verizon's paid them a lot to get exclusive rights to NFL games on phones. So if you have Verizon, you are in luck. Otherwise, you'll need that iPad.
Canada or UK options: If you're in Canada, CTV will be streaming the game. The CTV GO app will stream the game if you're a CTV subscriber. If you're in the UK, BBC Two will be streaming the game. You can watch it through the BBC Sport app. Sky TV will also have the game, and you can get a Sky Sports day pass to watch it on NOW TV, which should be available in Ireland as well.
Everywhere else If you're outside the US, Canada, UK, or Ireland, you can buy a weekly pass to watch the "big game" live through the NFL Game Pass app. There might be ways around it if you can use some VPNs and get the weekly pass, but good luck.
