This is how you view the Super Bowl:
On your smart TV
If you have some kind of smart TV or streaming stick, you can most easily view the Fox Bowl by downloading Fox Sports, Fox Now . , or the NFL app. You can log in to your TV provider or create a free profile, but you can also stream it without logging in. All three apps are available on most streaming platforms, including Xbox One, Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, Samsung TV & # 39; s, Roku and Google Chromecast.
Note: streaming is the only option that allows you to view the game in 4K HDR. To do this, you need a reasonably fast internet connection (Fox recommends 25 Mbps or higher) and a device that is suitable for 4K resolution. These are advanced Roku devices (Roku Premiere / Premiere Plus, Roku Ultra, Roku Streaming Stick Plus and 4K Roku TV & # 39; s), Amazon & Fire TV Stick 4K and Fire TV Cube and Amazon Fire TV & # 39; s with 4K resolution. You can also use an Apple TV 4K, but that only displays a standard 4K stream – no HDR.
You can also view the Super Bowl through any streaming service in which Fox is bundled – and if you are a first user, you can take advantage of the free trial versions. These services include:
